Customer Questions & Answers

what size is the inlet/outlet 3/4 ?

Asked by: Cowman
1/2 inch NPT female. Use bronze nipples.

Can this be used in series with main heater?

Trying to use this to compensate for long wait for hot water without the drawbacks of tankless POU heaters, need to know if it can be run supplied with "hot" water line instead of cold.
Asked by: a5ehren
Yes, Piping the tankless heater in series with the output of a larger storage heater is great idea. The plumber that warned of "calcification" need to bone up on chemistry. After the water is heated,mineral deposits fall out of suspension to the bottom of the first water heater resulting in much softer water entering the tankless heater. Go for it!

Performance 2.5 Gal. 6 Year 1440-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started leaking after 2-1/2 years. Started leaking after 2-1/2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great.No problems I bought this 10 gal tank last summer to use as an outside shower water tank. Used it for a couple months a couple times a day. worked fine for 2 people and some times 3 people. it recovered fast. I had not problem taking a shower. We did take a rather fast shower just in case, but it worked out fine. I plan on using it again this summer. I would say if you need a small amount of hot water this is the way to go.I do feel the cost was a little to high for what I got , other than that I was happy with the water heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from direct replacement I had to replace same model that was at least 17 yrs. old. Glad to find same model with same measurements was available given long life of the one that finally quit. Fittings were also in the same place so it made connecting the unit fairly easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug & Play! I'm not a plumber, but a determined DIY'er. I had the old one out and this one installed in a matter of hours, with nothing but a crescent wrench and a screwdriver...easy peasy
Date published: 2017-02-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy hook up I bought this for a guest bathroom that was far away from the main water heater. Solved the problem perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wonder why I waited so long? I just finished a complete water pipe replacement in my home, and this was a gift to myself for the work done. I had to wait for hot water at my kitchen sink forever, all the gallons of water wasted a shame. I installed this heater inline with my larger unit, also a Rheem 40 gal, and now there is hot water as soon as I ask for it. Nice simple install under the counter. It does not take up much room. I did have to run power to it from a better source for the load factor only. I am an electrician so It has to be right, no corners to cut. Trust me you will wonder why you waited for the pleasure of real hot water when you need it, not tomorrow. Go for it and save water & time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Installed by a professional, under kitchen sink, in September 2015. Tank rotted out and unit leak... Installed by a professional, under kitchen sink, in September 2015. Tank rotted out and unit leaked in June 2017. Customer service wanted me to turn off the power, crawl under the sink, unscrew the panel, and complete a performance checklist with them over the phone before they would authorize a replacement. I am physically unable to complete that process and would have to hire a plumber, at additional cost, to do it. All of that for a $179 water heater. Geez, Rheem, just replace it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install Tank fits underneath our kitchen sink easily with some space to spare and didn't interfere with the PVC drain pipes. Suggest checking available space under sink before installing. Take does NOT come with the 1/2" nipples for cold water intake and hot water out take outlets. Disappointed in that! Tank provides ample hot water for our kitchen sink needs and left temp at 120 degree factory setting, which works fine for us.
