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.

will it deliver enough water for a shower

we are putting in a 6 gal unit is that enough to warm up shower water
Asked by: bill
We use a 6 gallon suburban LP gas water heater in our RV and there's plenty of hot water for a 'marine' shower - get wet, turn off the water, suds up, turn on the water & rinse. No reason to think this 6 gallon electric water heater would be less effective. If you prefer long, slow , soaking showers, however, this isn't the heater for you. Since I haven't used it, I can't say for certain how it will perform.

Is this unit 120 v. Plug into the electric outlet

Outlet accessable
Asked by: Joe
yes, 120 v. you need to add your own 3 prong cord and wire it ( pretty straight forward)

Performance 6 Gal. 6 Year 2000-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Six Gallon Tank Local HD did not carry 6 gal size. They ordered it and it took 22 days to receive it. Prior tank had hot directly above cold. So did the one from another big box store. The H & C are offset on this tank. You may have to do extra plumbing if your prior tank had H & C directly in line. Tank was shipped from Texas & someone needed to be home to sign for it. I had a small leak I could live with for a few weeks. If you need it right away ordering it will not help. Many chain stores will ship an item from another store if they don't have it in stock. HD should offer this service. The pressure relief valve drips. Rather than take it back to HD, and be without a tank, or call the company with a warranty claim I replaced it at my own expense. It quickly heats the water. Overall satisfied with the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Folks, this is my 2nd point of use unit... the 1st was the 2 1/2 gal, then this 6 gal. unit: 1. E... Folks, this is my 2nd point of use unit... the 1st was the 2 1/2 gal, then this 6 gal. unit: 1. Excellent hot water in 1 or 2 seconds - it gets an A+. 2. I went to the 6 gal unit for obvious reasons - needed more hot water ; the smaller unit could not keep up with demand. Now one more reason... when I looked inside the 2 1/2 gal. unit it was filled with sediment ( caked on pretty thick)... so I said time for a new unit. 3. Now the new unit has been in service since Aug 2014 ; Once again I looked inside - and this time it was to change the anode rod. It was totally spent after 31 months of service. So, I replaced it with Rheem anode SP11309P anode rode ( 11 3/8 long magnesium rod) **** really I purchaed the SAME rod , just a different length and cut it to size ...SP11309C , 44 in. long, from AMAZON - HD does not carry these rods***) So, now my recommendation - if you want to keep this unit longer, replace the anode rod , a $18 part, and easy to install if you are handy). When I took out this rod it was about 1/32" in diameter. It's new diameter = .700 ( about 3/4 inch.). So it does its job. After that, what gets eaten up? Not the rod, but your tank and/or the plumbing to your water fixture. I did the SAME replacement for my 50 gal. water heater tank... different brand, so I will not mention it. I recommend this unit with the caveat that it is not just 'plug and play' for 6 years. Some maintenance is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kitchen Sink heater I bought this Rheem to replace cheapo Home Depot model I'd installed 3 years earlier, but it began started leaking (from the anode area no less) and required cutting out my entire cupboard floor to dry it out. The Rheem was a bit of a tight fit, but it finally worked and has performed great ever since (1 year later). Our Kitchen Sink (like most homes) is the busiest in the house, so this unit gets lots of "exercise" to keep's good for about 2 min of very hot water, and after that it's just "lukewarm" for dishwashing, etc. But WAAAYYY better than not having it at all, and better reliablity so far than past units I've looked at or owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worked one time only. I am very unhappy at this point. The water heater worked when installed by a licensed electrician/plumber. It was turned off for a period of time and then turned back on. No longer working. Reset button did not help. It apparently never popped out. I replaced the 30 amp circuit breaker just in case it might be bad. All wires and plumbing are tight. The heater was/is full of water and supply lines are open. The heater was manufactured May 26, 2016 and I purchased June 29, 2016. It was installed a couple months later. I am very disappointed with this product. I can not recommend this product unless problem is resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Hot Water Put this in-line under the kitchen sink so that we wouldn't have to wait so long for hot water. Now have hot water in just a few seconds. For the first few months there would be a small amount of air in the line every time the faucet was turned on. I contacted tech support and they didn't have an answer. For the most part, this problem has diminished to the point of not being noticeable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit Easy to install. One thing to consider: it has a 2000W element which requires a 25A breaker. Be sure the outlet used is rated for 25A. We changed out the element to a 1500W element so we could plug it into a standard 20A outlet. The rate of recovery will be slightly less, but it is is direct connected under a sink and 6 gallons should be plenty of volume for one sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small hot water tank I bought this a year ago to put under my kitchen sink. Takes to long for the water to get there from the home hot water tank. Works great! Does everything it should and has a quick recovery time. I will however buy the biggest one that will fit under the sink next time. I highly recommend.
