Vertex™ Power Vent 50-Gallon Gas Water Heater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent water heater! After looking at available water heaters, this was the best by far in terms of energy efficiency and maintaining hot water.  I like the double anode rods and look forward to this improved and energy efficient water heater.  Since I just installed this unit, it is too soon to rate the Pros and Cons (don't believe there will be any cons).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaking issue The power vent is leaking easily and it is hard to find qualified contractor to work on the issue. Whoever can do it would cause a fortune.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Skeptical This unit is replacing one (same model) that was less than 4 yrs old. Previous unit had ignition issue which had been repaired. Replacement was necessary when unit started leaking. Current unit is a warranted replacement. Previous unit worked well prior to quality issues causing replacement which is why I would still recommend to friends but with caution. Quality issues on this unit would change recommendation to "NO".

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.

Intelli-Vent™ Gas Control

Advanced electronics for more precise control of water temperature and easy to understand system diagnostics.

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.

Green Choice® Gas Burner

Patented eco-friendly design reduces NOx emissions by up to 33%.

How it Works

The GPHE-50 Vertex™ Power Vent gas water heater delivers an unprecedented 90% 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.
