Recommended Water Heater

Can you recommend a brand or brands of gas hot water tanks for a 4 person Southern California home. The only online consumer reviews I have found are equally very negative. Mine is working fine but is 20 years old.

I think the Cadillac is Bradford White. Made in the US and pricey, but I have never had a call back on one. I have also had good experiences with Rheem, sold by Home Depot. I would't touch anything made by American like Whirlpool, sold by Lowes.

I still like A.O. Smith even though they do have their moments.
I'd pick Rheem as number two.

good input. My plumber suggested a Bradford White and two of you agree that Rheem, which I can pick up at the HD a mile from me, is number 2. As for Whiirlpool, the FIL retired as number 2 of its Findlay plant. Some of its appliances are great, but some not so good and I just about bought one at Lowe's yesterday!
