General Pacific is Celebrating 10 Years of Selling Rheem® Marathon® Water Heater Products!

General Pacific, Inc. is proud to celebrate 10 years of selling Rheem® Marathon® water heaters and products.  General Pacific readily stocks a full line of Marathon products  ranging in size from 15 to 105 gallons.

Marathon water heaters are available in several different configurations to meet a wide variety of real life water heating needs:

–          Marathon point of use water heater tanks

–          Marathon low-profile water heaters tanks

–          Marathon heavy duty water heaters

–          Marathon solar thermal water heaters

–          Marathon Eclipse water heaters for commercial use

Our wide range of customers including utilities, contractors, and homeowners come back again and again for Marathon products due to their durability and the industry leading Marathon no leak warranty, which guarantees that your Marathon tank won’t leak for as long as you own your home.

John Richards, Regional Manager for Rheem recalls his experience working with General Pacific (GenPac), “Back in 2002 I was given the assignment to find a way to service utilities in western states.  Without GenPac, Marathon could have never reached utilities as rapidly and successfully as we did. Working in partnership with the GenPac team has been a wonderful experience.  We worked openly together to serve the utility industry thus building a great business for both of us.”

The high quality features and built to last design of Marathon water heaters makes these products superior to other water heaters on the market.   Marathon has recently made upgrades to their products including swapping out copper elements with the unmatched strength of titanium, which provides superior resistance to lime build up. Rick Hall, CEO of General Pacific, Inc., says that “Marathon products are of such great quality and the factory service is great; it is a pleasure to sell a product that people show off to their neighbors.”

Marathon water heaters are reliable, energy efficient and are built to stand up to the toughest water conditions.  General Pacific looks forward to another 10 years of selling and marketing Marathon products. If you are a utility, contractor, or retailer interested in information on how to buy Marathon water heaters or other conservation products, please contact General Pacific sales staff at 503-907-2900 or via email at  Residential customers can find all Marathon products online at
