Has anyone out there had experience with this brand? I just had a nightmare installation- the customer couldn't get the "cement" out of their water and I had to remove the unit. The supply house swears this has never happened before. This product was installed in Westchester county, NY. Any information would be greatly appreciated. THanks!

Come on guys, he's talking about a "stone lined" tank. Unless you guys think someone actually carves a tank out of granite to make a stone lined tank.

I have put in a lot of Vaughns and never had an issue with the lining, but I have had a few issues with their gaskets on their "Top performer".

Same here. Top performer is anything but, howeve I have been installing Vaughn tanks for years with very few problems and they stand by their warranty.

I never really had that complaint about discolored water after installation. Maybe the manufacturer didn't properly flush the tank before shipment? these aren't bad tanks by any stretch, I think that Vaughn manufactures all the indirects for Burnham (if memory serves me)

Well hell, I have never heard of nor have I seen a stone lined tank. So maybe I was a little quick with the orange smock. Mea Culpa. I am sorry.

I am coming up with alot of Flintstones jokes right now. Pretty funny to me but they really don't go with my honest apology. Oh well, there I go laughing by myself again:jester:
