Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No complaints It was fairly easy to install and has worked perfectly. January 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rheem has been a disappointment Purchased and installed this water heater, and could not get it to stay lit. Indicator light had no power, so called the number on the brochure. Spoke with very nice gal, and when I told her of the problem she stated it was most likely thermal coupler wires and they are bad sometimes, and that she would send out a new part the next day. I received the new part as stated, and installed it, and still no power to unit. I called back and spoke with a second woman who was extremely rude, and I was on the angry side at this point because when I purchase something brand new I don't feel I should have to repair it not only once but twice! She told me she would send out a new control box, and I told her I didn't want to fix a brand new product a second time. She was rude and I was probably just as rude due to this becoming a major project. She told me I could have a repair person fix it, and she looked for someone on their approved list, and stated there wasn't anybody in my area! I live in Bakersfield California and it's not a small town, so I was shocked by this and thinking what kind of company is Rheem if they dont have any service people in th area? I will have to find a plumber now and pay him myself, and try to get reimbursed by the company. This is the second water heater I have purchased with this problem, and I can tell you I will never purchase another hot water heater from this company! March 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rheem water heater In general this is a good product. It works reliably and quietly, and, as far as I can tell, efficiently. The only problem has been that it seems to run out of hot water sooner than I would expect for its capacity. December 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install and use I installed the 38 gallon Rheem natural gas ultra low NOx at my mountain vacation home which replaced the very old (perhaps 30+ years old). The only help I needed was to lift the water heater into position - it is somewhat heavy for me to do it my myself. Lighting and operating the water heater is a breeze with the built in piezo-electric spark generator. The results: lots of hot water! December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Performance Plus! Great unit, easy to use, .easy to install, easy to light and has a good manufacturing warranty. December 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent replacement for tankless After determining that the exhaust pipe configuration was not compatible with this unit it fired and has worked well during the past six months. An instruction to use only one 90-degree elbow in the exhaust setup would be helpful to another purchaser. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great water heater Our old water heater had just about bit the dust. Piles of sediment in the bottom and loud banging noise. Mediocre for heating water. This new Rheem water heater is wonderful! Lots of hot water and NO banging! We love it. December 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by water heater after one month the heater quit and I had to replace two malfunctioning parts. I was without hot water for 5 days until fixed. This is not a good experience to say the least . your product appears to be low quality. December 10, 2014
