Answer: 
You will need to install a "T" fitting at the cold water inlet. One end of the "T" goes into the inlet and on the other end of the "T" you'll install your drain valve. On the upstream side of the "T" you'll install the cold water shut-off valve.

Answer: 
there is no drain valve on this model. (And yes, I agree, this is ridiculous.)
To drain the tank, run as much water out of the pressure relief valve as possible. Then if you're lucky you'll have a pump to pump out the remaining water. If not, put a pan under the cold water intake and disconnect that line. Water will gush out all over everything, but your tank will drain, and fairly quickly.

Answer: 
No drain valve, one way to drain is to unhook cold water supply and you will need a few buckets to catch the water if tank located inside house, I used a piece of plexi glass and positioned it under the cold intake and then unhooked the cold water connection and guided the flow of the water with the plexi glass,
Had to do so in order to change heating element. Can't comprehend why no drain valve is Read More

for a 20 gallon tank, it's not as if it will never be need to be drained.
Rheem stated that when installed you have to use a splitter and install your own drain valve. Read Less

Answer: 
The drain valve should be located at the bottom of the tank. The following is the correct procedure for draining a water heater tank:
- Turn off the heater
- Turn off the incoming cold water
- Locate the drain
- Attach a hose to the mouth of the drain and route it to the outside of the house
- Loosen the drain valve
- Open a couple of hot water faucets to relieve pressure

Answer: 
2000 watts / 120 volts equals about 17 amps. It needs to be on a 25 amp circuit breaker to be legal. A 20 amp circuit breaker should never have more than 16 amps on it all the time.
25 amp breaker requires #10 gauge wire. Most homes have smaller #12 or #14 gauge wire, rated at only 20 or 15 amps.

That depends on the plumbing setup and what has to be done. If you have an old place like me it will cost more. I installed it myself so labor was not the problem.

Answer: 
We paid $25 but we also had other items installed so if this is your only job for the plumber it could cost more. Some have a minimum charge. And this item was on the main floor in our utility room so it was a simple replacement of an older water heater.

Performance 20 Gal. 6 Year 2000-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well This 20 gal tank was an upgrade from a 10 gal model that we had been using for a couple years. I finally got tired of being limited to short showers. This one gives hotter water for longer showers. Installation is simplified by the unit being 110 current. Using 'Shark bite' type connections make the plumbing much easier for the amateur DIY plumber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reem is a quality brand Had a small area to install this water heater, works great and a 6 year in home warranty. Great buy. Richard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit So much better than my old unit and I just wish I had replaced it before the old started to leak. I get as much or more hot water from this and its only a third of the wattage. I was limited in the size I could get due to the location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good price simple to install. no problems light weight I would buy another one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worked one time only. I am very unhappy at this point. The water heater worked when installed by a licensed electrician/plumber. It was turned off for a period of time and then turned back on. No longer working. Reset button did not help. It apparently never popped out. I replaced the 30 amp circuit breaker just in case it might be bad. All wires and plumbing are tight. The heater was/is full of water and supply lines are open. The heater was manufactured May 26, 2016 and I purchased June 29, 2016. It was installed a couple months later. I am very disappointed with this product. I can not recommend this product unless problem is resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent Replacement for my Small Home Arrived sooner than promised at my Tampa Bay location with free shipping. Almost an exact duplicate of the Rheem which served my manufactured home nearly 10 years without problems (we replaced it because some neighbors had suffered catastrophes with leaks in their water heaters of the same age). I hired a local plumber and he got it in without a hitch, but I doubt I could have done it myself; I am NOT handy! Placement of drain valve results in a gallon or two of water remaining in the tank after draining, so plumber laid it on its side in the gutter to fiinish emptying. Plumber said I made a good choice of product, as Rheems are best quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from petfect fit Bought this for my 50 foot houseboat little tight to get thru door but made some adjustments Wattage is same at 2000 as 15 gal so I can pretty much heat up before leaving dock and good for quite a while with hot water as needed With it being 2000 watts it's not s problem or strain to reheat with generator

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small hot water tank I bought this a year ago to put under my kitchen sink. Takes to long for the water to get there from the home hot water tank. Works great! Does everything it should and has a quick recovery time. I will however buy the biggest one that will fit under the sink next time. I highly recommend.
