I assume that when you say 30 amp breaker your referring to a double 30. Because most water heaters are 220v.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 332 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good water heater Still going strong after a year..... Easy to install and light enough for 1 person to move in place. 2 people to carry it down stairs though. I replaced the included heating elements with stainless steel ones because my water is nasty. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Purchase to completion: 5 hours We needed a water heater ASAP and Home Depot had this one available. We picked it up in our minivan, drove it home and my husband got it installed before he went to bed. From time of purchase until it was finished took about 5 hours. It's working well and we have hot water again which is what we needed. It was the least expensive unit at the most expensive operating cost, so it's not fantastic, but it gets the job done. We are thankful for it. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by installed one in a rental a year ago and going strong, so I'mbuying another one for another rental. An electric hot water heater is one of the easiest things to replace in a home for a major appliance, just make sure that you fill it with water before you turn on power to the unit, otherwise you will kill the heating elements in a matter of seconds. I'm putting these 50gal units in 3 br / 2 bath homes with no complaints of not enough hot water. December 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New water heater Installation was easy and it is working well & efficiently! January 13, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best bang for your buck very easy to install. 1 star taken off as heater had dings to the outer case (this doesn't affect heater operation or capacity). March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for the money! Our old water heater blew out on a Sunday and we needed a replacement quickly. I went to Home Depot, got the electric Rheem 50 gal., 6-year heater, and installed it myself. Filled it up, plugged it in, and presto, hot water! Don't believe anyone who tells you this isn't a good heater -- they probably have made the mistake of plugging it in before filling it with water. Also, don't transport it by lying it down on the front of the box. We also have a Rheem heat pump. They make good products. October 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good product this is a very good water heater . Installed it myself in three hours including removal of old one. I was supposed to have it installed by home depot , but I was not contacted until three days after the purchase. Then I was called and emailed for about two weeks asking if I wanted the installation. I am very happy that I did it myself July 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't do it! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and daughter in law. We installed it on a Friday and the top element was DOA. So we got it going with just one of the two elements. Could not get any Rheem service because of the weekend I guess. Too much hassle. So we decided to by a new element. No one in the North, East or South side of Houston had one. Had to order from HD and it took a week to get it. Before it arrived the other element burned out. They were taking cold showers. Found the water heater has the cheapo elements in it, so we bought a better ones and replaced both of them. Too much time and inconvenience. Go with a better model. December 26, 2014
