Customer Questions & Answers

Where is the drain valve?

Where is the drain valve? How do you drain the tank?
Asked by: Scott
I just finished draining mine and there is no drain valve. But I was able to drain the tank using a simple technique. First turn off electricity and water to tank and open faucet to bath tub or sink. Remove cold water inlet hose from tank and attach a garden hose to this pipe. Then slowly open pressure relief valve and tank will start draining into garden hose. Be prepared for small amount of water to come out of pressure relief valve initially so have something in hand to catch water. The tank drained easily following these steps. Rheem did not give these instructions and they need to add this into the information that is provided to the customer I found this out by trial and error and reading reviews from other people.

Performance 20 Gal. 6 Year 2000-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 118.
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

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.

While disappointed in the life span, it is only warranted for six years. Considering, I guess ten is good. At $328, I'm not thrilled. However, the original unit worked great until it sprang a leak today. I have it in a park model located in a over-55 resort in AZ, where summer heat destroys everything faster than you'd expect. From the time I left to get the new unit and my neighbor began removing the old one until we were finished was just over one hour. SUPER easy to install and get up & running. Only real negative is that it doesn't have a drain to empty the tank before disconnecting the water inlet/outlet.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What the Master Bathroom Needed The master bedroom bathroom is on a side of my house where the main water heater is 3/4 of the way on the other side of the house. To use the shower stall or sink, the water had to run for 2 minutes, wasting several gallons of water. This point water heater was easily plumbed into the supply water and hot water outlets, The 110 volt hookup only needed its own dedicated plug-in outlet.
