Customer Questions & Answers

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.

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.

Performance 6 Gal. 6 Year 2000-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.
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 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 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 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 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.
