How good are the elements in a Marathon water heater? Will I have to replace the elements often?

The quality speaks for itself and we have hundreds of customers with a Marathon in their home.

  • The bottom element in the Marathon Water Heaters is made of titanium which only Marathon has. It is much more resistant to harder, more difficult water.
  • The top element is actually made of copper, which also performs well. You won't find a metal tank water heater on the market with titanium and copper elements.
  • The Marathon elements have a 6-year warranty, whereas the Marathon tank has a lifetime warranty.
  • We have visited their factory assembly line and we were very impressed with their quality control measures.

We keep extra elements and thermostats in stock in case you ever have a problem with them, but over the past 6 years, we have had very few issues with Marathon water heaters.
