    I had the same unit in a house I bought and it was at least 13 years old when it died (stopped making hot water and leaking) so for the price this seems reasonable service. I bough the same unit to simplify re-installation. My major issue is that if you open the unit, which will break the seals, it voids the warranty. The unit I had was installed correctly where the power wires should be connected directly into the unit (evidently voiding the warranty). The new ones come with a pigtail wire. You need to anchor a junction box nearby and use big wire nuts to splice in the pigtail. For a new installation I would suspect that the inspector would say you can’t do this and need to connect the feed wire directly to the unit. Also, the install directions for this unit say that you are supposed to use 6 gauge wire, and the pigtail is 8 gauge. Does this make sense? One good feature is that the old unit had no clearance to put a wrench on the unit fitting when tightening the compression nut. Without a wrench on the unit you could damage the fittings on the unit when cranking on the compression nut. Evidently they figured this out and the new units have more space to attach a wrench that holds the unit plumbing in place when tightening the compression nut. It seems like a good unit, especially for the price but the wiring requirements makes no sense.
