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.

Answer: 
Where you live, with 40 - 42F water inlet temp in the winter time, you will not be happy waiting a long time for the water heater to recover from using it. It will quickly drop from 120F to only 105F by taking out about 15 gallons, and will take 75 minutes to recover back to 105F.
I would recommend a 3,800 watt dual element like the 28 or 38 gallon low boy models, or a 4,500 watt dual element - also Read More

I would recommend a 3,800 watt dual element like the 28 or 38 gallon low boy models, or a 4,500 watt dual element - also availble in a low boy model of about 38 gallons. Tall versions are less expensive.
AS far as operating costs, if you have a area to mount it,, a heat pump water heater would work great, and help cool the place in the summer time. Many areas will give a great rebate for a HPWH if you replace a electric water heater.
Good luck! Read Less

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by small HW Heater for a cottage/trailer. its expensive and the hoses and connectors should either be listed or actually come with this unit. That part of the DIY job was most difficult just finding out what connections and hoses come with it. It cost me another unnecessary trip to HD which really slowed me down. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT HAVE SHIPPED TO YOUR HOME! Water heater was shipped to my home and arrived with many dents and indentations. It is not packaged for shipping in any manner - no wrapping, no protection, just stuck inside cardboard box and shipped. Also, the temperature relief valve was faulty at installation and did not work. I live in a rural town and had no choice except to go to the local store and purchase a new valve for $33.69 for this brand new water heater. I have pictures and a receipt should Home Depot or Rheem desire proof. September 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality well built unit OK, so I didn't buy this to put in my house. It is going in my OTR truck as an insulated water tank. I took the bottom off and installed some Pex tubing and concrete to run engine coolant through and heat the water while I drive. It is a quality built unit. Uses foam type insulation rather than fiberglass. I have no doubt it would serve anyone very well in a typical use situation. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reem 20 gal. If you live in a small place and single, this is a good system. Set it up for a plug and it runs off normal power. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Water heater for the lake cabin The water heater has the same hook-ups as the one i took out. Installation should be a breeze. March 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by check your wattage This unit requires a 25 amp breaker, information not stated in ad. Most plugs and breakers are either 15 or 20 amps. If you don't have it on a 25 amp breaker it will not work!!! April 8, 2016
