Customer Questions & Answers

Will this item be available soon

How long can you hold it at the store after purchase
Asked by: David
David, Seems Home Depot forwarded your query to me when only they can answer your question. The water heater was not available in my KittyHawk Store, requiring me to have them order it online in August of 2014. Upon its arrival I picked it up and installed it myself. It turned out that the new 105 gal unit weighed less than the old 80 gal one and installation was straight forward. In the year of service we could not be more pleased. My standard routine when traveling is turn off both main water supply and water heater power. Recently after a two week trip, I turned on the water but neglected the circuit breaker. On the 3rd day we noticed that showers were not as warm as usual and I realized & corrected my oversight. Hope this helps.

105 Gal. Tall 4500 Watt Lifetime Electric Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 183.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed in 4 years. I had this installed in my new house and after 4 years it is DEAD. The Warranty Page won't actually show you the warranty, and the warranty verification tool says it can't find the status of my hot water heater, even though the marketing department seems to be able to find its model from my serial number and send me marketing emails JUST FINE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of HOT Water! I bought the water heater to replace one that had started leaking, I was able to take a HOT shower less than an hour after I installed it and our family of 4 has not run out oh hot water yet. The outside of the water heater stays at room temperature thanks to the superior insulation. I bought mine through our Electric CO OP (Ozarks Electric Cooperative) and saved about $250.00 vs buying from a home center or other outlet They only sell the highest efficiency electric appliances (water heaters and heat pumps) to their members and they are sold at cost since by law an Electric Cooperative can't make a profit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lifetime Warranty* I bought 2 of these recently. I'm not sure how well they will last and I'm not sure why you need to register them to get a lifetime warranty or why they cost so much. Will I own the house in another 10+ years to see if they last longer than my last ones??? Maybe. The reason I bought them was because my plumber recommend them because of the lifetime warranty, but even he has no idea how long they will last. Here's hoping.... The only reason I rated this medium and not higher is because it is newer and I have really no idea how long it will last or how it is performing compared to my old one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought the tank in November of 2015 for a new home. We moved into the house in May 2016. It was fine for about one week, then the elements broke! Called Rheem and they sent us new elements (standard elements do not fit), but only after the plumber called, too. Took cold showers until the parts came 4 days later. Less than a week later the thermostat broke. Cold showers again!! Didn't bother calling. We were frustrated and sick of taking cold showers so we just had our plumber install a standard hot water tank. Very disappointed especially considering how EXPENSIVE it was to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver Bullet We've beenin our house 11 years & have had to replace our 2nd tank. So our plumber recommended it as a life time option. Like the look, water is nice & HOT, looks good in the corner, the grey helps it fade away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hotter water than I've had in ages! I purhcased my Marathon water heater just days ago, it replaced an 11+ year old water heater. The water is hot, fast and reliable so far. A small glitch with the installation, it was rectified by days end and everything was completed as promised. My only negative comment, the Rheem Marathon water heaters aren't easy to find in Nova Scotia, I had to do a lot of research to find the only company that knew about it and would/could install my Rheem Marathon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Year Later We had this unit installed to replace a ten year-old tank, and so far we're very happy with our choice and can't complain about it. It's heats the incoming municipal cold water to a toasty 125 degrees, and we're able to squeeze in one dishwashing session by hand and three showers by family members before the hot water supply is gone. We were worried about possible cracks in the plastic shell over time, since it is a hard plastic, but so far no cracks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent water heater. Bought this unit two weeks ago after our traditional metal water heater made a mess in our basement. So far can't complain, it heats water really good. The manufacturer pre-set temperature was way too high (150°F) so I set it lower, it took more than 5 days to get the temperature where it needed to be as it really keeps it's heat. It is pricy, but it will be worth it for these two reasons: the lifetime warranty and the excellent heat retention.
