Customer Questions & Answers

What are the dimensions of this unit

Asked by: Bobby
The unit is 15 inches high and 16 inches in diameter. Any pipe fittings for connections are in addition to those. Just a tip - getting a pan the proper size to go under the unit may be a bit difficult although I recommend it as the previous unit started leaking out the center of the bottom at its end of life which may or may not hide the leak, pending your flooring. I ended up putting a 16 inch pizza pan under the new unit, which although very shallow, will help illuminate future leakage.

hello does this heater need a drain pipe ? also do it have one drain outlet built in

Asked by: ahmad
No, this model does not come with a pre-installed drain valve, a drain port should be placed on the cold water supply line during installation.

I have an standard outlet that I want to plug this 6 gallon unit into. It is a 120v on a 15 amp breaker. Will this outlet be able to handle the 2000 watts that this unit will pull. It is only wired for this outlet. It used to have a garbage disposal plugged into this outlet.

Performance 6 Gal. 6 Year 2000-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great.No problems I bought this 10 gal tank last summer to use as an outside shower water tank. Used it for a couple months a couple times a day. worked fine for 2 people and some times 3 people. it recovered fast. I had not problem taking a shower. We did take a rather fast shower just in case, but it worked out fine. I plan on using it again this summer. I would say if you need a small amount of hot water this is the way to go.I do feel the cost was a little to high for what I got , other than that I was happy with the water heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from direct replacement I had to replace same model that was at least 17 yrs. old. Glad to find same model with same measurements was available given long life of the one that finally quit. Fittings were also in the same place so it made connecting the unit fairly easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug & Play! I'm not a plumber, but a determined DIY'er. I had the old one out and this one installed in a matter of hours, with nothing but a crescent wrench and a screwdriver...easy peasy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy hook up I bought this for a guest bathroom that was far away from the main water heater. Solved the problem perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pieces of junk! Bought the same model number as a replacement in the hopes of saving frustration ... Pieces of junk! Bought the same model number as a replacement in the hopes of saving frustration - big mistake. One of these came with the house (installed near the dishwasher as a booster) and when I started a kitchen remodel, noticed the wood floor was saturated under it. Pulled the unit out and there is a plug on the bottom that had rusted and was leaking - god knows for how many years - poor design. Desiring and plug a play solution, I decided to buy the same model number which was still available (there was no date stamp on the original so am unsure of when the warranty expired - there is a date stamp on the new one). Got it home and went to swap the units out - remember this was the exact same model number. The new unit had 3/4 inch fittings and the old unit had 1/2 inch fittings! After a trip to the h/w store and $50 later, had the unit plumbed and filled. Went to set the temperature and found the new unit's thermostat went to 150 deg F instead of the original 170 deg F (same model number - different functionality). Needed the 170 per health code so swapped the thermostat (which happened to be a matter of unclipping them and swapping them, a 15 second job - I guess the only other good aspect of this transaction). Fired the new one up and when it came up to temperature, found the expansion/relief valve to leak. Yeah - same rating as the old one 210 deg/ 150 psi - again same model number - really?) I have know backed the temp down in the hopes the leak stops. I will then have to run the dishwasher again to see if it meets the health code requirements with the setting lower than the original unit. Temp gauge (installed in-line) shows 160 deg F now. Bottom line - avoid this piece of junk and buy a different brand! Oh yeah - I wanted to put a drip pan under this unit in the event the bottom leaks down the road - the unit is 15 3/4 inches in diameter and I could not find a drip pan smaller that 21 which was too big to fit in the cabinet. I did find that a 16 inch pizza pan barely fits so that is better than nothing - actually, infinitely better than nothing which was the original set up which did a number on the wood floor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wonder why I waited so long? I just finished a complete water pipe replacement in my home, and this was a gift to myself for the work done. I had to wait for hot water at my kitchen sink forever, all the gallons of water wasted a shame. I installed this heater inline with my larger unit, also a Rheem 40 gal, and now there is hot water as soon as I ask for it. Nice simple install under the counter. It does not take up much room. I did have to run power to it from a better source for the load factor only. I am an electrician so It has to be right, no corners to cut. Trust me you will wonder why you waited for the pleasure of real hot water when you need it, not tomorrow. Go for it and save water & time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install Tank fits underneath our kitchen sink easily with some space to spare and didn't interfere with the PVC drain pipes. Suggest checking available space under sink before installing. Take does NOT come with the 1/2" nipples for cold water intake and hot water out take outlets. Disappointed in that! Tank provides ample hot water for our kitchen sink needs and left temp at 120 degree factory setting, which works fine for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What the Master Bathroom Needed The master bedroom bathroom is on a side of my house where the main water heater is 3/4 of the way on the other side of the house. To use the shower stall or sink, the water had to run for 2 minutes, wasting several gallons of water. This point water heater was easily plumbed into the supply water and hot water outlets, The 110 volt hookup only needed its own dedicated plug-in outlet.
