Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 1 out of 5 dont buy it Didn't work had to replace everything immediately after install and still didn't work .....bad wiring from factory ...do yourself a favor n buy one from a plumbing supply store just not a Rheem ......probably should of guessed by the name what was gonna happen ....we got RHEEMED ....tech support keeps hangin up on you also so if you have couple hours w nothing to do and are ready to be extremely frustrated ..give them a call ...atleast they spoke ENGLISH ..

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frequent Shopper Purchase in 2010 and has already failed. The limited warranty is of no value, not sure why they even offer it. We are looking for another tank but definitely not Rheem August 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stay away Purchased at beginning of this year and heater element has failed. Warranty process takes a long period of time to recieve new heater through rheem December 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Piece of junk!!!!! Brought in March already had to replace both thermostats and elements. Paid out of pocket to have repaired then Rheems warranty department doesn't reimburse me says that the way the warranty on the heater works is you have to call them first and they will send you the parts that you need overnight.
