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.

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.

I was very concerned about reviews a year about the Honeywell controllers that are installed on all gas water heaters that falsely detect a overheat condition a shut off the gas. I read online on that this issue after years is fixed. Time will tell.

It took a while to light the pilot but I blame that on the amount of new gas line I ran. One word of caution, this new 40 gal heater is much larger than my old heater in height and circumference.
