Does this unit require an expansion tank?

I live in Charlotte and have purchased this a replacement for an old gas hot water heater (30 gallon capacity).
Asked by: Reba
Depends. If you have a closed water system, Ie. backflow preventer on water meter then yes. Because when the tank fills with cold water, it expands when heated and must have somewhere to go. So that depends on your water supply system, not your water heater.

Performance Platinum 40 Gal. Tall 12 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 581.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It definitely works Got this to replace my older unit that started leaking. Found an independent plumber that would install it much cheaper than the one HD worked with (estimates taken without sharing competitive bids). Hot water at tap is hotter than before, even at lower temperature settings. Haven't gotten a gas bill since installation to compare usage to old unit, if cheaper then this is a five star deal. Note that this is most efficient 40 gal unit I found with 12 year warranty and brass valves and still does not require electrical power. Energy star units require power and don't heat when power is out - this unit still works! Installation still costs more than this unit even after the large reduction by using a different plumber. Be wary of their estimates in Triangle NC area, they are over-eager to replace existing parts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Product is doing well so far, it's only been a few weeks, only issue were having is the process following installation to get everything inspected (per city regulations).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install Our son did the installation. He is an excellent auto mechanic and home owner so he is very knowledgeable and adept and has all the tools he needed.

My unit has been in service for only two weeks but so far it is working great. The diagnostic control gas valve flashes to alert of problems and normal operation. I purchased the unit because of the 12 year warranty so hopefully it will provide trouble free service throughout the warranty period. The unit does not come with a pressure/temp overflow line or pan so make sure you have everything before leaving Home Depot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked within 1 year My Rheem 40G Tall experienced leakage within 12 months of purchase. Initially I thought those water on the basement floor was coming from the relief valve, until I have a plumber who casually took a look and diagnosed that it was a tank leak! The Rheem plumber said it was us who are unlucky to get a Lemon. Statistically, there are about 20 Lemons per 1,000 units in Rheem. The warranty works this way -- Rheem paid us full product price + installation in Home Depot credits, and there is no other compatible choices of water heater except Rheem ! Without any other options, I guess we have dip back into the exact same product for the replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rheem 40G PP When I picked up at my local HD it was on a pallet, which helped protect it from damage. Installation was easy, fired up first try. Only problem was a leak on top at the anode inlet. Had to tape and re-install. Stopped leak. This should have been detected at factory. It would also be nice if one of the settings was 120 degrees instead of 125 and adjusting down.Last heater lasted 22 years, hopefully this one will too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same Day Service Highly recommend this product !!!! But very disappointed in install company. Install cost more than heater due to highly inflated prices. Installer informed me that complaints are common about always costing more than over the phone quote. Would recommend local independent contractor that is interested in repeat business. Called Same Day Service to complain, at this point getting only $72 back. Will get quote for price match guarantee ASAP..

When we opened the box there were several dents in the heater. The box itself showed no damage. Since I had plumbers here ready to make the install I decided not to return it for one that was not damaged.
