No you will not be able to use your existing PVC venting for the XR90. The XR90 is a vent assisted with blower on the top. This water heater is not a Powered Vented water heater. The XR90 requires the same double walled B venting as required by any atmospheric vented water heater.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lemon of a water heater This unit was purchased by the Plumbing Company I hired in 2013. Within 11 months the burner went out. New one installed and that lasted one month. Another one installed and guess what the burner went out again this week. (2015), We are on our third burner. If this happens again I will be filing a Lemon Law complaint with the manufacturer. While the unit is still under warranty I have to still pay the plumber to repair it. Buyers beware. December 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surprisingly efficient, replaced a 50-gallon heater with no let-down. I admit that I needed to be persuaded to replace a 50-gallon water heater with this 29-gallon unit. I am glad I listened to my wife and went along with this purchase! Don't be fooled by the low price and seemingly too-small capacity, this unit does what it says it does: heats the water rapidly and efficiently. We have had this unit for 3 months, and many of the reviews I read were mixed about this product. I also noticed that many of the reviews were from a few years ago when there were some supplier problems and a lot of bad units were shipped. If you're on the fence like I was, buy this unit and you'll be glad you did! June 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good.. It has only been a few days installed but I don't have anything bad to say yet outside of it smells like burning ceramic when it is on. I got this open box-discontinued at my local HD for under 200 so I really cannot complain. Installation was easy and my current vent slid right over top without any screws.. we had to tilt it under, lift the vent, slide the heater under at an angle, boom(see comments below). All the electric makes me nervous of it's lifetime but it is still a 6 year warranty just like any other so I don't know how much we can compare apples to oranges. All in all, it heats water faster than a 50 gal and is Energy Star Rated. Crazy thing is all you do is "turn it on" and it lights itself and everything. Weird. January 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Water Heater, Don't Let Low Capacity Fool You I've been running it for a year or so. It's a great water heater, and it beats my old 50 gallon heater in first hour performance. I have a 4 bed, 2.5 bath house, and have put 6-8 adults through consecutive showers on several occasions and never got cold. I do run low flow shower heads, so be sure to look at first hour performance on any water heater you're looking to by. Also, be aware the vent height is taller than most heaters so it may require vent adjustments during installation. January 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very efficient water heater - excellent performance I took a chance on this heater with it's greater efficiency versus one with greater capacity. We have 4 kids so our hot water is in high demand. This water heater is extremely efficient and easily meets the demands of our family as long as we use water wisely (e.g. don't have two people taking showers at the same). It reheats water extremely quickly (fully reheated ~10 minutes or less after finishing a 15 min shower), which is critical for the use in our house. The electric start is a nice feature - no more pilot light worries. May 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Product Had this heater installed 14 months ago. Within the first 6 months a pressure switch for the blower went bad; unit would not fire at all. Spent 4 days without hot water while the part was shipped in. It was under warranty, yadda yadda. Now, the unit keeps going into a hard lock out; flashes an error code. 6, pause, 3 flash error code citing a flame loss. Had the service company out to check things over; after 5 hours of troubleshooting, they determined that the gas valve control unit (main part as far as I am concerned) is defective and needs replaced. Now I have to manually reset it each time I want hot water. Each time, for every thing. I have contacted Rheem, but have not received a return call to discuss these issues and my dissatisfaction with this unit. I wish I had never purchased this and I don't recommend it for anyone else. If you'd like to know what it is like to own this unit, turn off your water heater and get a shower. August 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Choice for Our Neeeds Had this 29 gallon storage water heater installed to meet the needs of a three bedroom 2 1/2 bath home. It is definitely more capable of meeting our needs than the 40 gallon appliance we replaced. The 60,000 btu burner is the key. When family came for the holidays we had no issues with hot water (though you must be reasonable on your simultaneous or successive demands). Exceeded the old water heater service capability. I am very satisfied. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Water Heater This water heater is an excellent choice for a family of 5 individuals. Make sure you have a 110 outlet near and have it professionally installed and buy the extended warranty you should have no issues with it we have had ours for over 2 months and it heats up faster van our old 50 gallon hot water heater. The only downside is that three people cannot be taking a shower back to back. But the heater recovers quickly. May 15, 2014
