Answer: 
I would advise against using a gas feed less than the requirements of 3/4. This thing needs a strong flow of gas and air to burn hot enough to heat flowing cold water. Any modifications I am sure would impact the units capability and possibly damage it. I would run a 3/4 in gas line if your meter will support it.

Answer: 
Tony, do the gas flow calculation on page 52 of the instructions (available on-line), go to the table on page 54 to get the BTU/Hr vs. pipe size.
I suspect you'll need at least 3/4" for a short pipe run, 1" for an average run (40').

Answer: 
No. It is recommended that you use only the 3/4" minimum. You can check with your gas supplier for their recommendation on the length of pipe sizing in order to accommodate the 199,900 btu natural gas requirement. This may require you to upgrade your current pipe size.

Answer: 
You must have 3/4 inch gas pipe for the entire run feeding to this Rheem tankless water heater. This unit generates 199,000 BTU so 1/2-inch gas pipe is NOT adequate.
In some cases you may need a 1-inch pipe from the gas meter to the point that the gas line starts to split up to feed other gas appliances in your home. This will depend on the number and type of gas devices you have in your home.

Answer: 
Gravity flow. Use a condensate pump if you are below grade. Also don't forget the condensate trap on any horizontal runs. See manual.

Answer: 
The condensate on my unit is a slow drip unless we're filling the bathtub. Then a small but steady stream comes out. It goes into a drain basin that gets pumped up to the septic tank. The volume of water is small but will eventually overflow a bucket.

The condenation is bleed off by gravity, I hooked up a small pump (Little Giant condesate pump) below mine to remove the water build up. The cost was about $35 plus additional pvc pipe to remove the water outside.

Answer: 
NO! If the electricity goes out the intake and exhaust fans will not work. So regardless of the fact it is fueled by natural gas, it will not come on. Also the gas lighter is electronic so it won't fire either. This is the major downside of this type of unit over a typical tank hot water heater! However, never running out of hot water has it's benefits!! I love the unit !

Answer: 
Jack: The tankless hot water heater does need electricity to run, about 2 amps at 115 VAC. It's full of control electronics, mixing valves, blowers, and other electrical parts. It should run off a small generator, maybe even a good quality inverter.

Answer: 
Yes. In power vent, you are referring to a water tank with power vent exhaust pipe coming out the top and exhaust outside. That is exactly what I had and changed to this tank less model. This unit vents with pvc piping just like your power vent tank.

You will have to install a venting system for a gas operated indoor tankless water heater. It's not a big deal if the unit is close to an exterior wall. It uses PVC pipe so you don't need a chimney.

Answer: 
Depends on what you mean by "power vented". This is a direct vented unit, meaning it vents out the side wall of your house. If the one you have currently vents out a chimney (likely does) you will need to run the venting for it. Also power makes it sound like your previous one was electric, note this is a natural gas unit, not electric.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing I am a diy type of person, that said I wanted my plumber to do this one. After 2 months of waiting I decided to get it done. No plumbing experience (some common sense) and about 3 hours, the old tanked water heater was out and this tankless was in. Searched online and turned the temp to 140 instead of the default max of 120. Ran it for a week at 140, then turned it back to the 120. Even the 120 comes out the faucet warmer than my old tanked water heater. Cut my gas usage in half during the summer when the furnaces are turned off. And now all 3 showers can run at the same time without running out of hot water in the first 5 minutes. All and all very pleased. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic heater I purchased the Rheem ECOH200DVLN from Home Depot to replace a Bradford White 48 Gallon Powervent tank unit that started leaking. I have a 4 Bedroom/3 bath house and so far this unit delivers consistent hot water as needed. A can have the washer and two showers running simultaneously without issue. The units fan(which turns on when there is a call for hot water) is much quieter than the power vent on my previous hot water heater. Please note that if purchasing this unit ensure you order the service valves as well as these are needed to clean the unit on a periodic basis. As this unit requires a 3/4 inch gas line, movement of all water lines and PVC work to vent and provide fresh air I hired a professional to perform the install. I am glad I did so as he spent a day to remove and install the new unit. In short, this unit works well and is a great value at the price point being offered by Home Depot. Yes, labor to install is more than a standard tank, but endless hot water with a longer warranty and space savings is worth it. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tankless hot water heater Home Depot's Customer Service was EXCELLENT when we reported a missing part and the manufacturer's lack of response. I cannot thank Home Depot enough. Our family is very happy with the end result!! August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase- Efficient and space saving Space saving and energy efficient. Great buy! Price is worth it. July 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not sold on it as of yet. I have a week of use with this unit. My mind might change after seeing my utility bill at this point I'm not happy. It's a pretty expensive so so product. For The size of water heater I needed this was close in price. I did the install as well. For the extra parts it ran around 350$. So far I have had plenty of hot water. It was fairly easy to install. Just a bit time consuming. It did free up a lot of room. The down side: 1 it's not very hot. I tried reprogramming it several times you can see how on youtube, Didn't work I can't get it to go over 120 degrees. 2 it's loud I'm going to try some things to quiet it down some today. I can hear it up stairs and feel it vibrate too. Its Not horrible but not great either. 3 it takes a long time to get hot water to any place in the house, especial first thing in the morning. At first I didn't think it would bother me but it is starting to. Its a bit of a hassle to have to wait 45-60 seconds for warm water just to wash your hands plus you are wasting water so I end up washing them cold. I like to conserve that was part of the reason I got the tankless water heater in the first place. I will try and update after more time. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product, great Home Depot shipping The water heater replaced a 13 year old tankless heater. It provides much more hot waterand and is more efficient than the Bosch it replaced. July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product Great - Overall Experience Disappointing The water heater arrived with a dented front panel and a loose bracket inside. The dent isn't a show stopper simply a disappointment given the amount of money spent on unit and not having the ability to drive it to the nearest store for another one in better condition (not sure about other HD but ours didn't stock this unit and it had to be ordered online delivered to our home.) The loose bracket inside was luckily nothing more than just that. Again, disappointing given the money spent and inconvenience of exchanging for another. Called the number provided by HD for install info and was quoted $4,800. Then she said $3.800 since I already bought the unit!?!?! I questioned if I was hearing her correctly. That's a ridiculous amount of money to spend on installation. My boyfriend was able to install by himself. It was smooth but time consuming. Haven't had any problems with the unit since we started it and so far very pleased with it's functionality. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by not a diy project Endless supply of hot water but installation involved making a couple of new holes in walls as we could not use the exhaust from the old hot water heater. It's pretty quiet and only heats the water that you use. I'm waiting on the first gas and water bills to compare to what I have been paying. June 24, 2016
