Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by heater1 Rheem performance 40 gallon Tall 6 year 40,000 BTU Power Vent natural gas water heater
I purchased this water heater on June 09th 2016 I had it installed on June 09th 2016.....It worked so so (has a noise though which is annoying) until yesterday June 25th I did NOT have any HOT water.. I called my plumber who installed the hot water heater and he came over. He looked in the manual and number 47 Seven Flash, three second pause appeared.....I called Rheem the representative said he will mail out the part (vapor sensor ) on Monday and it will not get here until Tuesday or Wednesday A major inconvenience NOT having HOT WATER. I also called the store and spoke with the assistant manager who said I can exchange the water heater.....TIME AND MONEY ....

Perfect fit into existing space to replace current hot water heater. This is a Power Vent hot water heater and is much quieter than the older version it replaced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Butch 40 Gallon Power Vent Water Heater
This seems to be a decent water heater. The fan is fairly quiet and the water heated up quickly.
The only problem I found was the product is not stocked. It took almost three weeks to get it shipped to the store. A person does not keep a spare water heater hid out somewhere in the house in case the old one decides to go belly up.
After saying that , Home Depot did have the best price on this model.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIY Seems to do the job
Easy installation, didn't need to modify any connections from the A.O. Smith it replaced.
The power vent blower buzzes like a bad fluorescent light and it's right under my bedroom.
It's nearly $400 more for a hot water heater with a power vent versus one without - seems a little excessive.

It was in stock at Home Depot, the price seemed on par with the market, and it installed as expected. It has been functioning for about a month without any issues and no complaints. Good product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cgomez Verdict is still up in the air
The tank has grown in size and thus, could not get through the amount of space in my boiler room. Contractor had to move my furnace by a couple of inch to get it through. After a half day's work, contractor was able to install. I've had it for over a couple of weeks and the verdict is still out on the quality of the product. Online reviews give it a good rating, so I will take their word for it. Value is well within the competitors' range.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MEHoffman NO FACTORY SUPPORT
The unit was just as easy to install as any water heater, and it mostly works. Since installed, three months, twice I have been greeted with cold water and found the unit locked out due to "pressure switch failed open". Cycling the power has cleared the condition and the unit started right up. I have contacted factory support about this issue and have received NO reply. I am not surprised. I contacted factory support about a missing part and never received a reply. In my research I have also found the "pressure switch" to be a common complaint. Because of the pressure switch issue and the lack of customer service I would urge anyone wanting a power vent water heater to research and purchase some other brad!
