It is Big Enough

    Best Uses

      Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

      It is big enough to fit; it is 48" by 75". One commenter correctly said that their water heater is 60 inches around, but they evidently tried to get 48" dimension to go around 60". Use the 75" dimension to go around the water heater. "But, wait", someone says, "my water heater is taller than 48", so now it doesn't fit in that direction". It is not supposed to reach to the floor, as the actual tank that holds the water is what you are supposed to insulate, not the heating mechanisms contained in the bottom section. (You can't see from the outside where the tank ends and the heating mechanism begins). Attach the blanket at the top of the tank and let it go down as far as it goes. Where it stops is where it is supposed to stop.

        Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

        The instructions are terrible. The packing makes product have issues. Ours had 2 small tears in the vinyl wrap from the way its folded and stuffed in bag. The packing also creates issues the the supplied tape, creased and crumpled made pealing the backing off the tape extremely challenging. Also if you follow the "instruction" you won't have enough. I used duct tape to hold blanket in place and supplied tape for the seam. Wish I would have done more research on water heater blankets. There is better products on the market.

        Two small

        Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

        Won't even fit a 50 gallon electric hot water heater. You would be a 58" x 72" blanket. Now I have to rummage for a 24 x 24 piece of insulation to finish.

        Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

        Just installed this item on my water heater. The instructions are not very clear--they don't tell you why each step is important--and are confusing--they need one set of instructions for gas and a separate set for electric, not combined.

        The provided tape is terrible. It was all crumpled and creased. Very difficult to separate the tape from the covering. When using the long piece that covers the seam, the covering paper tore multiple times, making it difficult to deal with. I ended up using my own tape.

        I assume the actual insulation will work, but the installation issues could have been easily corrected with clearer instructions and a higher quality tape, for which I would have gladly paid an extra few cents.

          Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

          Does not fit most gas hot water heaters. I have a 50 gallon gas unit which is 60 inches around and this unit is only 48. Fact is, most gas units on the market today are 60 inches around.

            I bought this on the way home from work and installed it within a half hour. By the time I was finished installing it, when I tucked my hand between the heater and the blanket, it was quite toasty in there.

            I've heard that a water heater blanket can save up to $10 a month in utility bills. If this is so, this is one improvement that will pay for itself in very little time.

            Like all of these ...

            By Jack

            from Denver, CO

            Comments about Frost King 2in Thick Water Heater Blanket (SP57/67):

            Like all of these so-called insulation blankets, this one doesn't fit the average-sized 60-gal. (18" dia./60" circum.) water heater. Even if one cuts and pastes, the size isn't enough to cover the heater surface. It's better and cheaper to buy material in bulk and use packing tape to get a better result.
