    Hello,

    Can anyone point me towards a commercially available residential heat pump water heater (40-60 gallons) that uses a tank which is not glass-lined steel? I'm thinking stainless steel or possibly polybutene. This water heater is a cement-lined tank, not sure what to think of that option:

    Of course, perhaps the heat pump system on the top of the water heater won't last much longer than the glass-lined steel tank, which would be an argument that there's no point in looking for a "lifetime" tank.

    Cheers, Wayne
