        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!

            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

                    Bought the Abt 9 year hot water heater to replace my old tank which did not heat. Abt came out with a licensed plumber and helper and installed it very professionally. The installer said that sometimes the surrounding tank pipes that are sixty years old may leak a bit, not due to Abt, just that they are so old that during the installation they may leak a bit. The Niles Village building inspector came out and sure enough found two minor leaks on MY OLD piping that only showed up on the inspector's very sensitive digital meter...could not smell them. I called ABT to request that they fix them since I did not know of any plumbers. I was willing to pay for repair since it was not their fault. Instead, they were out there charging me less than twenty dollars for parts and gave free labor. They did not have to do that...and that is why I will always come back. No, I am not an employee or related to ABT, just a satisfied customer.
