Ken's E-Tip: Water Heater Program

Central Electric Cooperative's (CEC) water heater program offers complete peace of mind service for your hot water needs. Let CEC install a 75 gallon Marathon lifetime water heater with our professional contractor, Dr. Waterheater, Inc., for the low price of only $670 (a $1,128 retail value).  

The program is for residential members only (excludes mobile homes and modular homes that are not on a basement due to tank size, seasonal and nonresidential accounts).


Superior Design    

Marathon heavy-duty nonmetallic electric water heaters are designed for harsh environments and have an excellent warranty to back it up.

  • Seamless, blow-molded, polybutene tank is impervious to rust and corrosion.
  • Tough molded outer shell resists dents and scratches. 
  • Well insulated for reduced standby heat loss.
  • Delivers 78 gallons of hot water in the first hour.
  • Titanium upper and lower elements for resistance to lime buildup.
  • No Anode rod required due to polybutene tank construction.


Tank Dimensions

  • 62 inches high
  • 28 inches wide


Limited Lifetime Warranty

Marathon offers a lifetime warranty against tank leaks for as long as you own your home. Warranty reverts to 10 years from installation date if home changes hands. Warranty on all parts is six years replacement and one year on labor.


Load Management Program

Members shall agree to participate in CEC's load management program for a minimum of five years. This innovative program helps CEC avoid purchasing power when it is most expensive, thus stabilizing power costs for all members. Marathon's super-insulated design reduces operating costs while providing hot showers during control periods. 

Members save $500 compared to retail cost by having CEC install a lifetime Marathon tank. Water heaters installed by CEC do not qualify for the $50 bill credit or $2.50 monthly credit.

To place an order for a Marathon water heater installation, call 800-521-0570.


Earn $50 Bill Credit

Let CEC install a load control device on your electric water heater and earn a $50 one-time bill credit and a monthly $2.50 bill credit. Call 800-521-0570 x2195 to learn more. Members having a water heater installed by the cooperative are not eligible for the credits.
