Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor Quality I have a Rheem/GE 38 gal hot water heater. The last one lasted 2 years before it died. The current one is 13 months old and the thermo coupler died. I called the 800 number on the hot water heater and was told a authorized repair company would contact me within 24 to set up an appointment. I gave up and called a plumber and within 4 hours I now have hot water again. The plumber said he had replaced four of these thermo coupler on GE hot water heater in the last couple of weeks. Next time I will try another brand. I guess GE warranty plan worked like they designed it. It didn't cost them a dime. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice so far It's just me and a roomate at a house, plenty of hot water for both of us even when setting it at lowest hot can't imagine how hot it would be if I set it to the max. Easy to install. Looks nice with the gray color. August 16, 2014
