Here are just a few of the features that make Richmond Water Heaters the best product for you and your family.

Fast Recovery

Ideal for "peak demand" situations when several showers may be in use, washers and dishwash-ers are operating, or the home has a spa. Our fast recovery models replace used hot water faster so there's a larger supply avail- able. Our 6-year Heavy Duty Gas, 9-year, and 12-year water heater models feature fast recovery.

EverKleen™ Self Cleaning System

Fights lime and sediment buildup to improve tank life and maintain peak efficiency. The EverKleen system channels water through an exclusive inlet tube, which creates a high-velocity spiraling water stream. This keeps sediment from settling into the tank, and eliminates tank "hot spots" to produce more hot water. Available on our 9-year and 12-year models.

Rigid Foam Insulation.

The water heater is the second- largest energy user in a home. Our 9-year Electric, 12-year, and Lifetime water heaters feature rigid foam insulation to fight stand-by heat loss. Twelve-year models come standard with pipe insulation for maximum efficiency.

LIFEGUARD™ Stainless Steel Heating Elements

Available on our 9-year and 12-year models. These elements last longer, prolong tank life, provide superior resistance to lime build-up, and resist accidental dry-fire burn-out.

Low Input Pilots

All our gas models feature low input pilots to reduce wasted energy during stand-by periods.

High Temperature Dip Tube

All Richmond water heaters include an extra durable high temperature dip tube to meet the most stringent plumbing codes.

Resistor Heating Elements

All electric models feature our patented design which helps prolong anode rod and tank life.

T & P Valve

For installation convenience and for added safety, all Richmond water heaters come with a new temperature and pressure relief valve pre-installed at the factory.

Heat Traps

Another way to prevent stand-by heat loss, so the water heater costs less to operate. Available on 12-year models.

Porcelain Tank Protection

Tanks are protected by exclusive porcelain formula. Provides a tough, corrosion-resistant porcelain tank lining for long life.
