A Bradford White hot water heater limited warranty covers leakage or other malfunctions of the glass-lined tank and component parts due to defective materials or workmanship, states Bradford White. The warranty protects the first purchaser and subsequent owners as long as the unit remains installed at its original installation site.
The warranty does not cover items such as dry-fired elements, temperature and air shutter adjustments or replacement of anode rods, states Bradford White. T and P valve failures are not covered unless Bradford White supplied the valves with the water heater. Owners can download and print copies of their missing or misplaced warranties from the Bradford White website.
