where do i put the gas?

i brought this new water heater and I've been trying to figure out where the gas goes. I tried on the top pipes with the theeth
Asked by: handyman69
The gas connection is on the lower front side of your water heater. The gas supply line connects to the thermostat (where you adjust your temperature). You will normally see a ¾” opening on the thermostat.

Why does it say this item is not available at my store?

It says this item is not available at my store, and I cant find it at any store for that matter? Can't I have it shipped-to-store?
Asked by: rygunner
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot, R Y Gunner. This water heater is only carried in select Home Depot stores and not online. If it is not available in your store, they may be able to special order it for you. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

Customer Reviews

Performance 40 Gal. Tall 6 Year 36,000 BTU Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did it myself and I'm a lady I want all you women out there to know: I'm a lady and I installed this myself in about 2.5 hours. Watched a few videos on youtube and it's very simple as long as you don't have to make any changes to you existing pipes. Make sure to do the soap/water test and check gas connection for leaks. I had issues on how to measure for new tank and found out you measure "tank" only from bottom of tank to the top of tank...(Top to bottom of tank only). I bought this heater and had it installed within 3.5 hours of bringing it home in my SUV. Home Depot loaded it for me and once home just slid it off truck and into garage, then into laundry room. It's not that heavy. Check out youtube and watch as many videos as you can on hot water heater replacement. It's been installed now for 4 days and no leaks (gas or water) and I have nice hot water again. Home Depot wanted $400-$1000 for installation. I realized if it can be done by others "why can't I do it" and I did...That goes for most any home repairs/improvement. I saved a boat load of money doing it myself....Thank you youtube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice for price I bought this product just a few days ago and it has been a dream so far. I had looked at Lowe's to get them to install a whirlpool model but after reading the reviews I decided to get Rheem instead. I have never installed anything like this in my home and it took about two hours from start to finish to get the product in and going. Since then the pilot light has never went out and the hot water is delivered as promised. Good luck with your shopping. I would recommend this purchase for the ease of install, the price, and the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, Straighforward Install & Water Heater Working Great So Far.... Our old water heater went out Saturday (no warning, just kaput -- woke up to cold water showers and wet garage floor) and on a weekend (never fails) so we had a few days of cold showers, etc. It lasted 14 years and had a 5 year warranty, so I guess it was long overdue to die. At first I was thinking we'd need a pro install and that is M-F I believe (ended up installing myself however on Mon. aftn.)....so during weekend, I went online and checked out lots of brands, Rheem came up shining in the customer reviews department. So on Monday morning I went to the Home Depot nearby and chose this one.... It was in my garage waiting for me when I got home from work (wife took free delivery) and I installed it same afternoon. I would have done this the day the old water heater died but I was thinking I'd need a pro installation at the time, not having confidence to do it myself at first. As it turned out, the whole install took about 2 hours (have done a few projects, but not an expert DIYer by any estimation) with the instructions being very detailed and straighforward (mostly involves reading the inst. thoroughly and being sure to attach all the connections properly. I had a bit of concern since I have never installed a water heater before but forged ahead and everything went fine..... it is heating away as I type. There was warm water within an hour and it was actually too hot later in the evening (temp dial was at about 3/4 of the way up to heat the first fill of water) so I turned it down 2 notches before bed ...and it was still plenty hot for showers next morning and dishwashing and one hot load of laundry. I would recommend this water heater and I will update if anything changes, but so far it is chugging away and heating great (see my post-installation pictures attached) So, bottom line, don't be afraid, just read the instructions thoroughly (very detailed) and you'll be fine. If I can do it anyone can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Only problem with install was we had 3 old men that would make the three stooges look like genius, and we still got it done with out too many problems
Date published: 2014-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great so far. I installed this myself about 3 days ago. So far, it seems to be working great. It does not cycle on nearly as much as my old water heater. I did swap out the cheap plastic drain valve that comes factory installed with a brass valve. If I have any problems, I will update this post, but overall it seems to be a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Typical Installation The factory attached dielectric nipple at the top was leaky. Removed nipple from tank and applied teflon thread tape before reinstalling nipple and tightening into the tank. Solved problem. Also it is not uncommon for the water shut off valve to be broken in the water supply plumbing. I used a new ball valve with easy install shark bite connections. The gas water heater installation kit I bought from HD was handy too. It had all the remaining supplies I needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dissappointed. had to return and replace 28 days after installation.pilot light would not stay lit. hopefully the first one was a lemon, and not it"s replacement.
Date published: 2014-09-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled by the positive reviews Obviously my water heater failed and I went online to research a good brand and this model showed up. So the next day I have it installed and the Pilot light won't work. I called Home Depot and they said bring it back and we will get you another one. Hard to do when it's been professionally installed. I called Rheem and after their troubleshooting script that they read off of failed they said they would send me another part. I've been without hot water for days now and I can guarantee you I will never buy this product again. It takes a day and a half to ship additional parts and oh, I have to call the plumber guy to install it at my cost. Fantastic!!!
