Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 548 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by water heater Easy to purchase in store and have it installed by home depot. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working great I have it installed now for a month and everything is working great. Heats up very fast. November 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by THIS PRODUCT IS JUNK The tank would not light due to a defective pilot assembly. Had to call the 800 number and they had to ship me a new one. Since it was a Saturday, the new part did not arrive until Tuesday. A few weeks later the unit shut off due to a failed control assembly. Called the 800 number and that part is out of stock with no date for restock. I managed to get it lit again but it fails every couple of weeks. After three months the part is still not in stock. The 800 number offered me the opportunity to return the tank. I find that unacceptable since I would have to pay to have this tank removed, returned, and the new tank installed. March 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great so far Easy to install and is working like a champ since the day that I had installed it, and I hope it does for years to come. I haven't had it for long yet so I'm not a good reference for a recommendation, but based on it's performance so far I would recommend this water heater. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plastic drain valve does not mate to any known threads. The drain valve for the unit is cheap, doesn't fit any known thread types. The associate at the store could only tell me sorry, he didn't know anything about the drain valve. If you ever plan to maintain this unit, then do not buy it. You will have to drain it into buckets and haul them out. You will not be able to just hook up a hose and drain it like that. I will be going to get a real heater. This will become scrap. Maybe it will be good at least for this. May 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rheem Warranties aren't what they once were Installed in May 2014. Worked until February 2015. Pilot started having occasional problems, not heating and going out. Called Rheem on a Saturday. They would not dispatch a repair person until they mailed us the part. They over nighted it on Monday arriving on Tuesday. We then had to call Rheem who then called a technician who arrived and replaced the pilot on THURSDAY. Rheem had not sent all of the needed parts but the servicer stocked them since the problems were normal with Rheem. Five days to get warranty. Not acceptable. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Deal Home Depot advertised installation available, but our local store no longer had that option. Installation was not that difficult with a little help from some friends. I am satisfied with the results. June 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DON'T BUY...STAY AWAY!!! Straight out of the box, this unit wouldn't light. There is a problem with the pilot assembly and based on all the reviews on this topic, it has been going on for some time. Customer service wanted to send out replacement parts but that takes days and still no guarantee. With a proper installation, a brand new unit should work and this one does not, therefore, do not buy. May 25, 2015
