Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 493 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product Installed easily. good recovery ,good price, started right up. Big improvement over 12 yr old Hot water heater.Time will tell. Remember to make sure the existing gas line is clean at shut off of old tread seal or tape, before new line is installed. March 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well! I replaced an existing old 40 gallon water heater with this Rheem 29 gallon one myself. The job was only difficult due to the old non-standard plumbing in place that my old water heater hooked up to. I replaced most everything including the recommended gas line, added a gate valve to shut off the cold water, and a ball gas valve for code compliance. This water heater went in and connected right up once I added 3/4" fittings. I had an issue getting the heater to register that the pilot light was lit. I called customer service and they told me when I pressed the ignition button a few times to hold in the black control knob in at the same time, and when I could hear what sounded like gas flowing to turn the knob to the low setting. I followed that direction and the water heater fired right up. After an hour I ran two loads in the washing machine, washed a load of dishes, and took a shower with no shortage of regulated hot water coming out about 120 degrees. I have had no issues and the unit has run fine for the past week, its so quiet I can hardly hear it running when the burner ignites a real improvement over my old one. Bought from Home Depot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems solid Well, the unit seems solid, the install was a breeze, and it lit right away after I first purged the gas line - something some of you probably failed to do if you've had pilot-lighting issues. I'm reluctant to give five stars to anything that isn't proven, and water heaters really aren't proven until they've reached beyond their stated life cycle. So, since no one offers reasonably priced 9 year NG water heaters anymore, I guess I'll let you know at the end of the six year warranty whether or not it was worth it. Summary: Easy installation, start up. Been in for two weeks, no probs. Can't recommend something that hasn't been installed for long. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hot Water Heater It was normal to install, no problems. Excellent water heater for the money and warranty. Thanks! August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Star of the art The water heater installed easily and has a modern pilot start and small monitor panel which makes it easier to light and safer to monitor. June 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad water heater I read the reviews and saw the problem with the combustion shut-off device (TRD), but needed a replacement and was out of town, and Lowe's was out of stock of a comparable unit. The second day after installation I called Rheem because the heater would not light. It took 5 days to get the replacement TRD. After TRD replacement and another 3 months, the heater quit working and had to be replaced completely. I wanted to pay more and upgrade, but was told it had to be a same item replacement. I was told this was a problem because of the extreme high summer temperatures in Arizona, which is when I had all the problems. Do NOT buy this water heater. The TRD is a known problem to Rheem, and yet they still sell this unreliable unit. December 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 50 days of usage and the thermopile voltage wire needs replacing! Purchased this hot water heater on 01/17/15. On 02/22/15 the hot water heater stopped working properly. Called the 1-800 listed on the booklet that came with the hot water heater and was told the thermopile voltage wire needs to be replaced. I had read the reviews before purchasing and still decided to purchase this one because I previously owned a Rheem hot water heater. I hope the thermopile voltage wire fixes the problem. I will update my review once the wire is replaced. February 24, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad TRD device 5 days without hot water! Have yet to get mine working. I installed it on a Friday, pilot would not light so a tech had to come out and it had a broken Combustion Shut-off device (TRD) He can not carry them because it is a safety device and had to order one. I won't have hot water until Tuesday! Not happy about that. The tech said he has seen 5 of these heaters with this problem in the last several weeks and all have been from Home Depot. Could be a shipping/handling problem. There was no damage to the cardboard box whatsoever and no apparent damage to the unit. The tech said it was installed correctly with adequate ventilation and vent was not blocked. Gas pressure was perfect. No reason for it to fail but it did. May 17, 2014
