Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 by easy to handle Bought this a couple of months ago and haven't had any problems with it. December 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by water heater after one month the heater quit and I had to replace two malfunctioning parts. I was without hot water for 5 days until fixed. This is not a good experience to say the least . your product appears to be low quality. December 10, 2014
