Customer Questions & Answers

Can a WiFi type hot water tank be used without using WiFI to control it?

Asked by: AJ
Yes, in the instruction manual it states to just turn the front panel temperature control knob all the way off and then to the desired temperature.

Does this require an electrical connection or electrical outlet?

In the video I saw them plugging something into the wall, but it didn't say what it was. I do not have an outlet near my water heater, and am wondering if it's required for the wi-fi module to work.
Asked by: Pete
Yes.

Wi-fi

Do I have to hook it up to wifi? Can I just use the water heater and not buy the wifi part?
Asked by: AZ
Yes, just don't buy this module. Use the water heater as it comes without this add on. Since this module doesn't do much, you're not missing anything except the ability to go in and out of vacation mode remotely and set the water temperature to a specific exact temperature.

Home Comfort WiFi Module for Select Rheem Performance Platinum Gas Water Heaters is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 71.

Plus once you get it working it doesn't do much. OK, so in spite of all the justifiably bad reviews, i bought it anyway. I'm a geek and it was only around $50. After trying to set it up using the Android phone app and getting nowhere, I sent Rheem an email and got a response that said the Android app is messed up (ya think?) and try it with another device. So I tried with my Windows 10 laptop and it set up without difficulty. Once the WiFi Module was set up that way, the phone app seems to work OK. However, it just doesn't do much. Yes, you can set the water temperature, set vacation mode, and see current error codes, but there's no energy usage information, run history, or error history. Pretty useless unless you travel a lot like we do and want to take the water heater out of vacation mode when you're on your way home from a trip, so you can take a shower shortly after you walk in the door. I would only recommend this device to geeks like me or folks who travel a lot and want the ability to turn on and off vacation mode remotely. Rheem has a whole lot of software work to do to make this an attractive product. One final thought, these Modules must not be selling, the Module I received had a date code in 2014, 3 years ago.

Two days after installation I got an Alarm Alert A102 that there was a water leak. It was a false alarm. There was no water and the leak sensor was completely dry. I sent a response email to the alert email then read "We are unable to respond to inquiries sent in reply to email." There was no way to dismiss the alert and no mater what I pressed on the screen I kept getting a window telling me to email a plumbing contractor. I was unable to do anything with the Rheem app--I couldn't change the temperature or activate the vacation mode. The email was sent from "help@econetsupport.com." So I went to the website econetsupport.com and it just said "Coming Soon." I realized that the Unit might be bad (bad sensor, broken wire, etc) but I also realized that the support for this Unit really sucks. I returned the unit today, three days after installing it.

Unfortunately, the WIFI module would not connect to our router 15 feet away. We have dozens of WIFI connected devices in our home and I am a senior software developer. Returned the product after several hours attempting to connect this device unsuccessfully.

Thought I would give it a try even thou the reviews were terrible and they say they have completely gone thru the app, should of listen and not wasted my time I returned it after it lost connection after a few minutes and said I need to contact the support team and it wasn't a wifi issue all my other devices don't have a problem this needs to be redesigned

I installed this Econet WiFi Module for use with my Rheem 50 gallon PERFORMANCE PLATINUM™ Powered Damper gas water heater. My propane gas-powered water heater is installed in my basement laundry room and in order to get a sufficient WiFi signal from my home network into that room, I purchased a $25 NetGear Extender and installed the same in that room. I might have gotten by without it, but I wanted to be sure. The physical install of the WiFi Module was simple enough, but the written instructions for connecting to your network & connecting to your device (in my case, a Nexus 5 Android cell phone) that come in the package are really, totally inadequate. At a critical point in the setup, it states to refer to the app on your device for further instructions. When you open the app, there really are no instructions to be found. I strongly suggest that you CUT TO THE QUICK AND CALL the Econet Customer Service number for the Rheem WiFi Module and let them walk you through it. They will have you use your device to sign onto the Rheem website and lead you quickly from there. This connection setup issue aside, I've been connected for about 10 days and if I poke the app, it quickly opens and shows me the status of my water heater. If you have more than one water heater in your abode, note that you can designate within the app as to which water heater is which. I have not had occasion to shut off/turn on the water heater remotely yet, but expect that that operation should be straightforward from here.

The one I need is, conveniently, not available right now (out of stock?) and no one knows when it will be available. It was supposed to be included with the heater, but NO it wasn't! LAME
