New Bradford White Electric water heater nightmare
We are dealing with a host of issues since purchasing our brand new manufactured home from Legacy a little less than a year ago. The latest, the water heater. We have been handed off a number of times from Legacy to the Home Store to Bradford White to Locke. No help whatsoever from any of them. We noticed water leaking outside around the concrete pad. Underneath there is a pipe hanging down leaking water. We called a plumber. Examination of the tank revealed a rusted out surface of the entire top of the tank. It is a 2011 manufactured tank and was installed last December. We are concerned about the safety in using the tank. The plumber said it needs a complete replacement. Since we cannot get any help my husband is planning on purchasing a whirlpool tank from Lowe's and having the plumber install it at our own cost and then filing a small claims suit against these companies. We are extremely frustrated with the service, or lack of service from these companies. I appreciate any information you may be able to give about this water heater issue.
