I need advice on a natural gas water heater? | Ask a Landman
I had a Whirlpool that gave out ofter two and a half years. I got a cred it at Lowes for the current full price, but decided to buy elsewhere since 96 out of 98 reviews were a 1 star and everyone is or has had the same problems. I had a Rheem put in and after 4 trips out I am still getting not enough hot water that I need to turn my cold on. They wanted to come replace more parts, and when I asked for a new unit they said they just want to come get it and let me buy another brand. I want a good brand that will not only last, but will give me hot water when we need it. I looked all over the internet and couldn’t find much information from places like consumer reports, etc. I would appreciate any suggestions or stories about good or bad experiences with natural gas water heaters? I have the water heater set at the factory setting which Rheem recommended when I called. The company who installed it told me to put in on the next to the highest setting, but Rheem said that is way too hot and would scald me at 140 degrees. Even at that setting, which the installer tried, I didn’t get very much hot water and it gave out before she could take her shower. I had heard AO Smith, but the place I got this one at said they stopped due to problems. And, a lot of articles on the internet gave Bradford White bad rating. Although the Whirlpool gave out, it was great up until it did. I guess it is too much to expect that. The place I got it at offered to come replace more parts, but I am not comfortable with a week old unit that is continually breaking down or needed a part replaced.

History at their feet
Sixty years ago, Sir Edmund Hillary sat down in the snow and ice on Mt Everest, took off his oxygen mask and told friend and fellow Kiwi climber George Lowe that he and Tenzing Norgay had "knocked the bastard off". Bess Manson sets the scene for an edited extract of Lowe's never- before-published letters from Everest.
Waiting below the summit of Mt Everest on May 29, 1953, George Lowe watched Edmund Hillary trudge towards him alongside Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. "Well, we knocked the bastard off!" Hillary, 33, said. "Thought you might have," Lowe replied, in typical low-key Kiwi fashion.
It was a great moment for the best friends and climbing partners who had, and would continue to, knock off a few other great peaks in their lifetimes.
Lowe was 29 when he made history with Hillary that day. Now we can get an insight into that exhilarating and exhausting ascent with a collection of never-before-published letters written by Lowe to his family and friends. Lowe was a prolific writer, even thawing his ink bottle over a primus to fill his pen on that most inhospitable of mountains. Historian and family friend Huw Lewis-Jones discovered the correspondence during his research for Lowe's memoirs. Dusty bundles of letters were unearthed also by Lowe's wife, Mary. Other letters were dug out by friends to add to the gripping account of a historic adventure. Together, they form a narrative of Lowe and his fellow mountaineers' day- to-day moments battling the elements in their bid to reach the roof of the world.
