A couple parts in my A.O. Smith Power Vent Design GPHE-50 hot water heater
have failed. I don't have the parts cost yet, but the fellow estimates they
will cost $700-800. As it is seven years old, it probably makes more sense
to replace the whole unit.
I need a direct vent. I have no flue available. It is 50 gallons.
Looking at Amazon for what units exist, I find reliability issues posted
for every one I can find. Some more severe than others. Are there any of
these units that are reliable?
