Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heats up Fast, Quiet and Looks Great too! Love this water heater. We just bought our first home and believed the water heater was good but were surprised when it busted and we had to replace it. This heater was the closest to the size and height and capacity that we had in our home previously and we purchased it based on that criteria. We were surprised at how quickly it heated the water and all three of us in our family were able to shower within 30 mins of it being installed. Not only does it work well, the design of it is nice. It was easy to light the pilot because all you had to do was press a button. So far so good! May 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hot water in an hour Hot water heater was easy to install. Replaced hoses to make sure I had no leaks. March 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install and use I installed the 38 gallon Rheem natural gas ultra low NOx at my mountain vacation home which replaced the very old (perhaps 30+ years old). The only help I needed was to lift the water heater into position - it is somewhat heavy for me to do it my myself. Lighting and operating the water heater is a breeze with the built in piezo-electric spark generator. The results: lots of hot water! December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No complaints It was fairly easy to install and has worked perfectly. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great water heater Our old water heater had just about bit the dust. Piles of sediment in the bottom and loud banging noise. Mediocre for heating water. This new Rheem water heater is wonderful! Lots of hot water and NO banging! We love it. December 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rheem water heater In general this is a good product. It works reliably and quietly, and, as far as I can tell, efficiently. The only problem has been that it seems to run out of hot water sooner than I would expect for its capacity. December 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent replacement for tankless After determining that the exhaust pipe configuration was not compatible with this unit it fired and has worked well during the past six months. An instruction to use only one 90-degree elbow in the exhaust setup would be helpful to another purchaser. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Intital Impressions Although it has been too short a time for a real evaluation (about 2 months when I had installed) and it will take years to judge on its durability, I would say SO FAR SO GOOD December 10, 2014
