    I am looking at getting a GE 40 gallon, self cleaning tank with a 12 year warranty, installed for about $750, including everything.

    Does that sound reasonable?

    The install itself is $309.

    Serious and retarded answers are both welcomed:c

    Beware and research it. I sell replacement parts and I can tell you they will fuck you and make it more expensive to buy burner parts.The price for the heater and install seem to be right IMO.

    Thanks kids...as for installing it myself, I would rather spend the bucks and have the install covered with a five year guarantee.

    The price is from Home Depot, and the water heater has a much longer tank life, and is self-cleaning...

    Indeed. I've had to do a couple of repairs on the current one we have so I know it's on it's last legs, going tankless when it finally gives out.

    You should give some consideration to conducting an expedition for your testicles, and try saving the 309 by doing the work yourself, Sally.
