Had this product for 2 months now...installation was a breeze but woke up this morning to no hot water. The pilot light went out and wont relight. Talked to the 800 number and they have to mail you the part and then a technician will schedule an appointment....SO if you buy this heater and the gas valve fails like mine, and after reading reviews, I see several others figure.... 2-4 days without hot water!!!! I bought a Rheem thinking it was a top quality name with top quality service. Nothing like a cold showers for the next few days to get my day going!!!! Should of spent the extra money on a lochinvar from the local plumbing supply store. At least they would have the part available the same day, i would of just replaced it myself and had hot water in a few hours vs. days

This water heater seems good quality, was not too heavy to move around, and the pilot light ignited easily. I expect it will have improved efficiency over my old one. The only thing I do not like is the dielectric pipe nipples that came pre-installed on the top of it. They have a shiny plating and the plastic lining, but the metal nipple itself is similar to a standard pipe nipple. I should think virtually all homeowners installing water heaters themselves into existing metal-pipe systems would be using flexible connectors for hookup. Such connectors have rubber sealing washers similar to what you see in the female end of a garden hose. How does anyone expect a rubber washer to form a reliable, long-lasting seal against the rough and sharp-edged end of a standard pipe nipple? Nipples made of non-rusting material and with smooth broad sealing faces at the end should be available, and if nipples come pre-installed in a water heater then that is what should be used. This is pretty critical since water dripping from a slow leak that develops 6 months or a year after installation can destroy your water heater years ahead of its expected lifespan. And who thinks to go down into their basement to check for slow drips trickling down their pipes on a regular basis?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rheem quality and reliability Purchased a home built in 2000. It had a Rheem WH with a born-on-date of 1998. It just started leaking a very small amount last month. This puts the tank at about 19 years old with a service life of 17 years! I know the developer didn't put top-of-the-line WH in the subdivision, but 17 years out of a "cheap" tank?!?!? When it came time to choose a new tank, the choice was easy. Rheem. No question about it. BTW, I installed it myself in under 2 hours and was inspected by the city. I really like this WH.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warranty date I bought this unit on 1/27/17, I installed it late in February. I went to register it in early March. I found out that the warranty would start on the day that it was made (12/06/17) because I installed it myself. I contested then, and still do, that the warranty should at least start on the day I purchased it. That would be a full month later than the day it was made. I recommend your product to my son and he bought one, but that was before I found out about the warranty issue. I am not happy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Heater I was having trouble with the controls on my old water heater of 12 years. The Rheem equipment was a perfect replacement of superior quality. Very pleased with the blue led pilot indicator light. Great control system. Only regret, I waited too long to make the replacement. For tech lovers, consider the WiFi model. Kind of regret not going WiFi on mine.

After shopping for about a month I finally decided on this hot water heater. I have had this for a little over a month now and am very happy with the purchase. The biggest drawback to the whole experience was that it had to ordered in because the local Home Depot doesn't carry it in stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, very well built. I haven't had it long enough to rate it's performance. My previous water heater was a Kenmore witch had the air vent at the very bottom of the unit . Hard to keep clean. I like the blue light flashing on the control valve letting me know the unit is working fine.

Love the fact that it monitors several functions and alerts to any problems. Starting the pilot light is a breeze. Just the push of a button. Lots of hot water. Thank you.
