    I'd recommend go to a local plumbing supply house and compare prices and products. They seem to have better qualities and prices than the big box stores.

    What do you think about the stainless steel tank inside? Doesn't need the sacrificial rod in it. I keep reading good reviews for it and it has a steel spigot for flushing it out. I hate all the others with the plastic one.

    Wow ! maybe that's good deal. Didn't know they where making stainless steel tanks. Tank is only as good as the weld joints.
    and the quality of steel it's made from.

    ?? steel spigot ?? Stainless steel I hope.

    I never saw an all stainless steel tank until I found this one yesterday. I just hope it's a good one and lasts another 16 years like my leaking one has.

    20180707_233653.jpg 20180707_233706.jpg I picked up the new tank yesterday. It's in a wooden crate. No cardboard box like every other one I've installed. I never saw that before. The drainage valve is really nice to. Looks like brass ball valve. Screw driver controlled too. It's beautiful.
