Customer Questions & Answers

What size circuit breaker is required?

Asked by: jj
3800 / 240 = 15.83a, so use a dual 20a breaker.

Is there one or two heating elements on the 20 gallon Rheem water heater?

Asked by: Ladyhawk
There are two heating elements, 3,800 watts each, and the upper thermostat will turn off the lower element when the upper element is cooler than the set point. Once the top of the tank is above the set point, the upper element will go off, and allow the lower element to run. Once the lower element is hot, then both will stay off until more cold water enters, cooling the lower element that will start heating first. So wattage is limited to 3,800 watts or about 16 amps at 240 volts.

What is the recovery time

Asked by: slimjim
All standard electric two element water heaters can recover up to 21 gallons to a 90 degree rise in a given hour. This rate depends on this incoming water temperature.

Performance 20 Gal. Short 6 Year 3800/3800-Watt Elements Electric Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 754.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUALITY!! I debated for months which water heater to invest in. I have remodeled homes for over 40 years and installed many heaters. The new Rheem I just installed in my own home is solid! The fact that I also received an insulation cover was an added bonus not often included with other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Water !!! I had to buy this to replace my last hot water heater, that was also a Rheem. It had lasted 22 years! I hope this one does too. It's working great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We think it's great! We looked at several different heaters and are really glad that we got the Rheem. It is wonderful for our use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from one of the very efficient water heater that I have This is the second Rheem product that I have used & they are so reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install I have Multiple Sclerosis so when things go wrong around the house, I sort of flip out a little bit. I am the consummate handyman and have never used anyone for any service of any kind. But as I lose mobility and energy, it has come to pass that I've had to use contractors. I only needed help getting it put into place and 15 minutes later I was installed. Very nice temperature at the factory setting as it is good and hot but you can tolerate it if you get your hands under it when doing dishes or something. Very nice, industrial looking unit. Your quality shows at least initially. Check back with me in 18 years which is how long my last Rheemglass unit lasted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install I bought this unit 2 weeks ago and installed it myself together with my fiancee. I was very nervous to do it since neither of us have done anything close to installing a water tank before, but after getting a lot of advise and researching, I was amazed how smoothly the entire process went. The tank comes well packaged, the cardboard box has convenient slots so 2 people can easily carry it to the designated place and once hooked up, it heated up the water in less than 30 min. We could not believe we have hot water already! Seems well built and durable, so far we are very happy customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great, but.... This seems well built, and love the compact size and the fact that it's he only 3800 watt 30 gallon on the market (most are 4500 watts). I have a rheem nat gas water heater in my main house, and it works great. If I was going to make one complaint - I think the temperature controls should be easier to access. I use this in my guest house/office and unless someone is staying there I keep the temp on low, and hen turn it up if I have guests. However everytime you want to adjust the temp on this you have to unscrew the two metal housings and use a screwdriver to adjust (while turning the breaker off). Kind of a pain considering a simple temp control could be used instead. Otherwise - it's a solid unit.
