Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Really great, nice features and produces all the hot water I'll ever need. I like the fine grained computer controls so I can precisely set the unit to heat in the way that best suits my need.Two nits:- The condensate was leaking because of an insufficiently tightened rubber gasket connecting the flue to the cylinder (this is the manufactured piece not the contractor installed flue), simple fix, but the manufacturing QA process should have caught this- The 3M label (transparent cover over LCD display and button labels) on the front control panel was installed crooked, I fixed manually, but again, this should have been caught at the factory

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heats water quickly From initial water filling of the heater after installation, to delivery of hot water, it was fairly quick. The only issues I have on the first day of install is the blower is a little noisy when the burner is running and the LED screen cover was installed off center and turned to the right. It makes it look crooked when looking at the screen and there is some sort of white strip that covers half of the screen stuck behind the screen cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Unit!! We bought this unit to replace a b/w power vent that was under powered and noisy because we upgraded the shower heads in our shower with higher flow nozzles that drained the capacity of the b/w 50gal water heater too soon. This unit heats water twice as fast.

Product Features & Options

Helical Coil Heat Exchanger

Spiral heat exchanger keeps hot combustion gases in the tank longer to lengthen the heat transfer cycle. It's positioned in the center of the tank for more even heat distribution and operates at 96% thermal efficiency, which saves money on operating costs compared to a standard 80% efficient gas water heater.

Side-Mounted Recirculating Taps

For installation with combination space heating/potable water heating applications (such as with air handlers) or any system requiring a recirculating hot water loop.

Advanced Electronic Control

Large LCD display; Precise temperature control; Advanced diagnostics; iCOMM Compatable.

Brass Drain Valve

Our brass drain valve is more durable and tamper-resistant than an ordinary plastic drain valve, which contributes to improved safety and reliability.

How it Works

The GDHE-50 Vertex™ Power Direct Vent gas water heater delivers an unprecedented 96% thermal efficiency rating and is designed specifically to generate a constant flow of 4 gallons per minute, resulting in continuous hot water for your home.
