How long is the electrical cord?

It requires an electrical outlet. I will have to have an outlet installed. So, how long is the electrical cord?

Just got mine. It's a generous 19 feet!

If this is a natural gas water heater, why does it need to be plugged in? Does it spend as much electricity as electric

Asked by: kk
Electricity powers small motor to open and close vent damper, which makes this heater operate more efficiently.

Is it true this unit can not be installed near a washer or dryer?

I was told this unit could not be installed within 10 feet of a washer or dryer.
Asked by: Curiousity
I installed mine at the location of my old water heater which is within a few feet of were the washer and dryer are located. If your old water heater is located in an area closer to your washer and dryer I find nothing the manual that states not to install it within 10 feet of your washer and dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I have had this for about 3 weeks works well very quite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy on a slow mover discounted product Installation was very straightforward. Powered damper and non pilot ignition system require 110 plug in within 18 feet. Purchased a floor demo for almost half off, but did not realize the ignitor wire had been pulled out. Once installed, would not fire up and showed LED error code of ignition problem. Called Rheem and explained problem. They overnighted a new ignition assembly and installation took about 25 minutes. Heater fired up and providing ample hot water. An energy saver as no pilot and dampered exhaust to retain heat around core of tank when burner is not active. Very quiet too. Rheem has stood behind their product admirably.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent, but has operational issues I installed this unit in OCT'16. The wireless connection is intermittent (lot of loss of signal issues even though it is close to a wireless router). Lately, the temperature fluctuates daily - will be normal, then becomes tepid - no error indications, no root cause known. I've since learned that the unit has an overly sensitive fume sensor which suspends heating for hours (until it resets) if anything is detected. Found this out through someone else who installed the unit, where kitty litter at the far end of the garage was causing the sensor to trigger & halt their water heating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I am happy with this water heater, it is efficient and works quickly. Not sure if there is a correlation, but our PG&E bill decreased this month. My only complaint is that the temperature is a little difficult to manage. If I turn it down a hair, it's too cold, if I turn it back up, we're scalded. They need to add a digital thermostat. This replaces a gas hot water heater that worked flawlessly for 17 years! And we used that thing every single day for all 17 of them. We couldn't replace it with the same one so we are giving Rheem a chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from recovery time is better After 15 years with our old water heater and running out of hot water more often than I thought we should have, we looked around and found the Rheem platinum series. Although the new heater is a few inches larger in diameter than our old heater, our contractor did a terrific job of installing it. We now have loads of hot water plus the peace of mind of being able to lower the temp with the app when we've forgotten to do so before a vacation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit! I bought this unit about one year ago. So far I only have one complaint. I was pretty bothered that the it took the igniter a very long time to light the fire and when i called i was told that i could remove and adjust it or call the service number and they'll schedule an appointment for repairs. Normally that would have been ok but the unit was brand new! After the adjustment it has been working flawlessly and the rebate came very quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great features on paper but cannot be trusted I bought mine a month ago. It works fine but one day it gave a lot of cracking sound. We had to call PGE guy at 12 midnight because the sound was so much, that we first thought, someone is bursting fire-crackers. The sound has subsided by the time the PGE guy came. He found no issue, but he only checked a few safety valves. Something is seriously wrong with my water heater and it was expensive to have it installed.
