        This has turned out to be an excellent product on every level, no complaints or issues thus far. ABT service, from sales to installation, was very professional and accommodating. They were able to facilitate all the necessary steps to insure that everything regarding the instalation was done under the most exact standards and conditiions. We highly reoommend this water heater and the installation services of ABT.

          Comments about Reliance Sta-Kleen 1212 Series 40 Gallon High Efficiency Tall Gas Water Heater:

          There's not a lot to say about a new hot water heater other than it makes plenty of hot water, plenty fast. Our last water heater lasted 19 years and was still working fine but here's the problem with keeping an old WH as long as possible: rust builds up in the unit and in the plumbing (if you don't flush the unit regularly... and most people don't). We also had an issue with a pipe leaking (small, small leak) which Abt corrected within a couple of days.

          We decided to pay a little extra for a little more energy efficiency. We'll see if if makes any difference in our utility bill. We also reviewed many brands before purchasing and decided on this brand mainly because of the reliability and quality of Abt, not the manufacturer of the WH.

          Anyway... so far, so good.

            Comments about Reliance Sta-Kleen 1212 Series 40 Gallon High Efficiency Tall Gas Water Heater:

            Replaced a 12-year Kenmore that was installed 15 years ago. This one has very similar features, with the same long parts warranty. Consumer Reports says to purchase the one with the longest warranty that you can afford, so I was glad Abt carried this model.

            My old water heater was still working, but on its last legs. I am shocked that I can now get *hot* water, I was settling for tepid without realizing how bad the other one was. This one has newer safety features, and the pilot igniter, no more long matches.

            Very pleased with this so far. I do wish that it had a digital thermometer, but apparently only the expensive hybrids do.

            I purchased the Abt 12 year labor warranty at a very good price to go with the parts warranty.
            We'll see if it lasts as long as the Kenmore, I hope so.

                  This replaces a previous Reliance water heater that never needed repair in its 17 year use. I have high expectations for this model.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The installation was on time, done professionally by pleasant installers who provided on-going helpful information about the appliance, its use and maintenance. The village inspector complimented the job that the ABT installers did.

                    Delivery and installation was outstanding in every way. Guys showed up exactly when they said they would and were courteous and friendly. The installation is beautiful and highly professional. They went above and beyond what was striclty necessary to install. They even cleaned up after themselves. I can't say enough good things about it.

                    We were forced to order a new water heater to replace our 4 year old water heater. My sales representative Blake Barker helped me pick the best appliance for the right price. The installers did a perfect job and our new water heater has been working wonderfully since.
