            ABT is a great Company! They stand behind their work and do what it takes to make the customer happy. Their prices are great, and everyone was very helpful.

            I'm very happy with my new Reliance water heater.

              It looks good, it has easy to understand control settings, insulated, and child proof drain valve for annual clean-out of sediment.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Two men showed up an hour early since the ABT sales department did not inform them I would not be home till after 1:00pm. The great thing about ABT's one price installation is, if you have old gas and water pipes that may not be up to code or not working right, that they will replace everything to make it right. I have new gas pipes, new gas on/off switch, new hot and cold water connection pipes, and they added new rubber supports under the tank since there is a slight slope to the floor. There was one minor leak in a new pipe fitting, but they came back the next day to fix it. Friendly and helpful installers.

                  Comments about Reliance Sta-Kleen 1212 Series Tall Gas Water Heater:

                  This water heater replaced a 21 year old dying heater, so I'm sure anything would have been an improvement. However, I was particularly pleased with the clearly marked, easy to use temperature controls, which include a vacation setting. It heats incredibly quickly (from tap to hot in 15-20 minutes).

                  The installers were on time, fast, clean, professional. ABT added a needed cutoff valve to the line for no additional cost which made me very happy. I would definitely buy from ABT again.
