"Scared - very scared"
Eight years ago, I had a water heater leak that did $30,000 in damage to my house. I lived with concrete - down to the studs for weeks. It was a nightmare. The contractor installed this product. I did not notice what product I had before. Last month, here we go again. This time, I saw the leak, so the damage was minimal. I like my plumber,so I won't say his name here. More than $1800. I told him that I assume he will use a different product. No, he told me this is usually a terrific, reliable water heater. I should have shopped around, or at least read all these reviews. If I had done so, I would have insisted on a better product. Now I am terrified that this is going to happen again.

"Major problems caused by leak."
I purchased a Bradford White hot water heater because I thought it was one of the best available, since it would be installed on the second floor of my home. After 4 years the water gushed out and emptied into my first floor, causing major damage. Ceilings and walls have to be ripped out so that it can be dried so as not to cause mold to start growing. Fans will be placed in three rooms of my house for several days. This is very expensive. After the wet areas are dried, the technician doing the sheet rock has to replace those areas. After all that the areas have to be painted. I would not recommend Bradford White. Buyer beware.

"Who cares if it explodes"
4 year old water heater igniter broke. We agreed to the labor charge and warranted part. Upon installing and reviewing the user manual, a large flash of fire came from the burner area. Before we could get close to turn it off, it flashed again. Had we been closer, serious injury/death or major fire could have resulted. Upon contacting customer service and explaining what happened and my desire for a new unit because of explosion, I was met with complacency, lack of care and or concern, and same old same - labor is your responsibility. Plus, I was told a wire screen installed on top of the burner was required by California law for pollution control; it probably melted from heat and fell on the burner, making a hole for gas to accumulate and making for a proper explosion when the burner lit. The unit is now property of the junk yard. God save us from the EPA and state law makers and companies that really do not seem to care.

"Water heater replacement"
Our water heater failed after 5 years so we called a Bradford White authorized contractor (per the Bradford White website) to replace it. It had a six-year warranty. Their warranty is virtually worthless. We were charged $800 for labor to replace it, which is almost as much as as buying and installing a brand new one.
