Reliance 909 Series 40 Gallon Tall Gas Water Heater, Model 940GKRT

Our self-cleaning 909 Series water heaters deliver 40,000 Btu/hr. — plenty of input for all your hot water needs. All Series 909 gas models feature C3 Technology™ with a flame arrestor and sealed combustion chamber. These innovations help prevent accidental ignition of flammable vapors from gasoline and other sources near the water heater. Because Series 909 models are self-cleaning, they prevent sediment build-up that can cause leaks and high energy bills. And they’re backed by an outstanding 9-year tank and parts warranty.

  • 30, 40 and 50-gallon models with First Hour Ratings up to 87 gallons
  • Self-cleaning Sta-Kleen® PEX dip tube helps water heater last longer
  • 9-year tank and parts warranty

            Comments about Reliance 909 Series 40 Gallon Tall Gas Water Heater:

            Such a bummer when our old water heater gave out. I was more worried about finding a reliable & trustworthy plumber to install a new one than anything else & then I thankfully thought to check the Abt website & yes they do sell & install water heaters with their own plumbers! In my opinion Abt is undeniably #1 in customer service & I had no problem paying the installation fee knowing I could trust Abt. I never knew what we were missing until we got our new water heater; dishes are cleaner, laundry is cleaner, super hot baths, no running out of hot water in our house of four. Excellent purchase price & installed the next day! Abt helped guide me with my towns requirements of a permit. Abt made the installation easy, removed old water heater & installed new one in no time & reviewed the pertinent features with us before leaving as well. Passed village inspection without any issues. Basics that were necessary when I went to purchase were gallon size needed, gas or electric, & dimensions of space its going in, Abt helped me with the rest. The self cleaning feature in the water heater is very cool & increases it's longevity & efficiency. We've had it for almost a month now & for me it was an appliance I never thought much about but now that we got this super efficient Reliance model it's easily one if the best investments we've made for ourselves. Thanks to Abt for giving me peace of mind with our purchase with your unbeatable customer service!

                Service and delivery comments:

                Ordered the water heater and had I installed the next day. ABT pulled the permit and sent two great guys to do the install. Fast, friendly, efficient, and neat. Had the install done in about an hour and left the place spotless
