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 103.
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.

One thing I would have liked, is the option for top or side electrical connection this unit only has a side connection point

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 Great Kitchen Sink heater I bought this Rheem to replace cheapo Home Depot model I'd installed 3 years earlier, but it began started leaking (from the anode area no less) and required cutting out my entire cupboard floor to dry it out. The Rheem was a bit of a tight fit, but it finally worked and has performed great ever since (1 year later). Our Kitchen Sink (like most homes) is the busiest in the house, so this unit gets lots of "exercise" to keep's good for about 2 min of very hot water, and after that it's just "lukewarm" for dishwashing, etc. But WAAAYYY better than not having it at all, and better reliablity so far than past units I've looked at or owned.

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.
