The Kenmore 33800 98-gallon light commercial-capacity natural gas water heater has seven temperature settings. The energy-efficient foam insulation helps keep the water hot. This light commercial-capacity water heater has a long-life burner and energy-saving pilot. It has a non-electric control system that shuts off gas supply in the event of a pilot outage. The glass-lined steel tank also includes an anode rod, providing protection against corrosion and a longer tank life.

98 Gal Gas Water heater

This was easy to install. Purchased this unit at my local Sears on clearance for a steal (below $600). One of the reasons I enjoy shopping at Sears is because of finds like this.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

kenmore hot water heater only lasts 1-2 years than leaks.

every one of the past 3 tanks leaked in less than the 3 year warranty. they should cover them all for 3 years but they do not when the original purchase is 3 years 10 months. i fully expect the next one to leak. i purchased a 1 year extra protection plan that was to cover the tank but in the fine print they only cover $500 leaving me with over a $1000 bill and a whole bunch of i'm sorry's.
