I have a 40 gallon electric reliance water heater model no. 8 40 2ARS8 - serial no. M94566434 that I need dimensions for so that we can replace it with a new model. Thank you.
Reliance is an AO Smith company
Link above goes to Reliance electric water heaters
I cannot find your model number
The serial number seems to show it was made in 1994, so the spec sheet would be difficult to find
You must have bought a good heater and taken care of it for it to last that long.

Typical 40 gallon Reliance electric:
18" x 59-1/2"
20-1/2" x 44"
Self-cleaning type Reliance 40 gallon
19" x 60"
21-1/2" x 46"

The size of your heater can be determined by measuring the height, and then measure across the top to get the diameter. Your measurements will be close to the numbers shown above.

A very old rheem fury water heater i assume it's just worn out but because of a space problem i can't go wider than the 15 inch diameter it has.

16" diameter water heaters could work if you cut away the metal and insulation off of 1 side of the water heater. The actual tank inside the shell is smaller than outside diameter.

American gas water heaters shows a 30gal 16"
model BFG61-30T30-3NOV

AO Smith has 16" Promax 30 gallon gas
Model GCV30

ELECTRIC 6 gallon point of use

You can get a tankless water heater if you have the additional money and a water filtration and softener system and don't mind expensive repairs if you install it yourself.

soetimes its gaskets around flanges and heater element fixings that fail
have a good look round after drying the area with tissue etc.
leave a dry tissue round the based so you will see tell tale trace stains where its perhaps leaking from
