Help Choosing new Water Heater

Question to plumbers :

I thought bradford white was made BY PLUMBERS : FOR PLUMBERS.

For example : Not sold to joe schmoe, who clearly started this discussion.

Seems like we can't get ANYTHING exclusively anymore.

I'm getting tired of installing GARBAGE that other people buy, and trying to fix the thing.

I guess one good thing about this situation is that Bradford White makes a nice heater, although we only install electrics around here.

Help Choosing new Water Heater

One of my clients with similar problems showed me his solution. He simply ran a heater line along the length of his hot supply pipe for his tub. He then enclosed the line and pipe both with split foam insulation. Granted it was on the far side of the house and on another floor so thats at least 60ft of heater line but it's been in place for a couple of years and he's quite pleased with it.
