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.

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 Great when you find a good one. Be sure to open the box before buying. The first one I bought was all banged up even though the box was perfect. Other than that the power vent works great and I can put my hand over the top of it and almost no heat is escaping when the heater is not warming the water. I think the power flap probably saved me maybe 5-10$ a month. Also this think I a very wide diameter due to extra insulation. So if your current heater is old and right next to a wall. Your water lines will not line up and need to be shifted over if running solid copper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new one versus the old one I replaced a 13 year old fully functional Rheem hot water heater with a new Rheem hot water heater. The new one has a number of improvements over the old. Most important, the new one puts out 5% of the noise of the old one. It is almost silent when it is in operation. The gas valve, ignition system are simpler and more reliable to use. While old and new had the same number of gallons of storage, the new one supplies a lot more hot water before it runs out than the old one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wireless and functionality is underwhelming The base functionality of the water heater is fine. No issues with hearing water. The optional module that allows wireless connectivity is underwhelming at best. It regularly loses connection to the router and to the water heater. A power cycle corrects the issue for awhile. Very slow to respond to changes from the app. Would be nice to see more diagnostics, scheduling beyond vacation mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the energy savings / star rating We had this unit installed March 2016 and have been very pleased with the unit. We decided to go with this unit due to the cost saving features, energy star rating and capacity. It has kept up the hot water supply with a family of 4-5 with no major issues thus far. I am happy we spend the additional money to upgrade to this unit and the energy savings will pay off the difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable I've replace my water heater in July 2016, currently I've had no problems with it (saying a prayer). When our power goes in a windy rain storm, its reassuring to know I don't have to go down in the basement to restart my water heater. It will automatically restart, even if the power goes 3 to 4 time in one night. This is my first review ever, why not do for a Rheem water heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water heater, poor app I've been very happy with the water heater itself. It was easy to install (did it myself) and looks nice in my basement. Most of all it has done a very good job of lowering my gas bill and keeping my water supply hot. I would definitely recommend it to others. The app on the other hand is kind of old looking and basically only does one thing - change water heater setpoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation for a wifi enabled water heater I love this water heater. I travel a lot and the ability to save energy when I am gone with a simple app is awesome. It already payed itself back when the water heater next to it started to leak and I received a notification that allowed me to prevent lots of damage. Integration with Wink home automation was easy. Love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Needed a new water heater and went back to the place I bought my last one. After taking with the sakes people went with their recommendation and bought a Rheem. I put it in with a few plumbing modifications. The controls have been great, easy to use and adjust.
