Answer: 
No, shouldn't be a problem. I suspect that you're referring to the salt used in water softeners but the amount of salt actually added to the water is insignificant.

Answer: 
The model you indicated is for a residential application and not for a manufactured home. Home Depot model XG40T06MD30U1 is designed for a manufactured home where the heater draws its fresh air through the bottom of the home.

Performance 40 Gal. Short 6 Year 36,000 BTU Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 853.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should of read more reviews Bought water heater and 6 months the gas valve needs replacing. Heats super slow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Leaky H2O Heater to Replace My Leaky Old One My new water heater leaks due to "condensation." I guess I should have just kept the 20 year old unit
Date published: 2016-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heater, Good price Bought heater one-year ago. It has performed flawlessly.
Date published: 2016-08-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install - difficulty with pilot light Purchased this on sale at a big box orange in color store due to changing standards and rising costs of the newer models. I moved into a century home with a dated water heater and the prospect of savings and convenience was too great to pass up. After a year of being boxed up the install went what I thought was seamless. gas, water connections easy to connect.. After several attempts to light the pilot it was determined that the striker / ignitor component was bad. Oncall Rheem diagnosed ASAP and Fedexed out a replacement - snapped in place an *SPARK* - pilot on. Will continue to monitor as I have heard/seen issues with the attached honey well valve assy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from stopped working after 2 years Junk. Stopped working after only 2 years. Wouldn't stay lit. Sent my plumber who got it working, then left, and a couple hours later stopped working again. Couldn't figure out how to file a warranty claim, web site was no help, so the 6 year warranty is meaningless. Couldn't find a phone number, God forbid you should be able to talk to a human, but it appeared that was the idea. I'll never buy another Rheem product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does it deliver full load of hot water? Now installed for about a year on a system with a recirculating pump. Without settign water temp higher than we would wish, it does not deliver enough volume of hot water to fill an oval soaker tub without stopping for a few minutes after the initial load of hot water is run into tub. It seems it may not be uniformly hot from top to bottom to deliver a full capacity of hot water, despite recirculating system. Other than that it is good - easy to set and leave alone with instant reheat when returning from extended absence with it set off. Heats quickly. Visusal display of status helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New purchase Basic water heater with convenient features as a remote spark lighter, includes safety release valve. The paint is neutral grey and looks appropriate for the dark corners where such appliances lurk. It's not clear if a ball check valve is installed but added value was provided by Rheem with the insulation for inlet and outlet risers. The directions did not specify a dielectric union connected to the plated water I/O nipples but as experience shows a direct copper connection here is fine, provided you do not solder directly the plastic lines fittings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I got a Rheem! Replaced my State water heater, which was always breaking down every 16 months or so due to a bad thermal coupler, with a Rheem 50 Gal tank and now we've always got plenty of hot water for multiple showers one after the other. As compared to before, we'd run out of hot water during the first shower of the day in a family of four. Our Rheem works much, much better and gives me piece of mind when it comes to hot water in our house. Thanks Rheem. Would definitely recommend Rheem to my friends.
