Is Rheem still good for gas water heater?

12 years ago

I have decided to put in a hi efficiency power vent 50 gal gas water heater for a renovated 2 bedrm apt. My contractor recommended the Richmond 5GR50PVE2-42 which is made by Rheem and actually on sale locally today. I read consumers advice about hot water heaters and they say the longer the warranty, the more likely the insulating material is thicker and better made. This only has a 6 year warranty and am not sure many offer much more than this from what I see reading on line.

Recommendations and opinions most welcome.
