Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob 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.

This 6 gal heater was the perfect replacement for the circulator on our tankless system. It fit into the small spot and so far is doing the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rheemed 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by HM Died in 7 months
Bought this heater when another one that had been running for 10 years died. Read good reviews but after installation it died in 7 months. Worked well while it did. Leaked all over, Thank god I had a drain pan installed under it on the 2nd floor with a drainage pipe.
Wrote to Rheem twice. No one responded. Called but could not get somebody on phone. The 6 year warranty is not worth this product. Will try another product somewhere else, maybe tankless.

I bought this water heater to replace a nine year old unit. It was a perfect replacement and was a quick install. It heats hotter than the old one did.

Have been using this for a few months now. My wife loves the instant hot water. Really saves on water. Very easy to install. Can't beat this product.
