Yes the 180 commercial thermostat will fit the residential tank
Keep in mind:
-Installing the 180 thermostat on residntial tank with 150 thermostats will void product warranty because the tank is not specified for that rating.
-150 is maximum rating for your water heater... due to tank strength
-Residential TP valve will release water at 170F
-Typical bath temperature is 104-110F and rarely higher
-Higher tempoeratures cause water to expand, same as ocean expands as it warms. The expansion increases pressure inside the task and on adjoining pipes and fittings. If tank is rusted or compromised in any way, the tank could rupture explosively. The flood of 180F water would induce inflicting fatal burns.
180 scald is potential fatal injury
