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

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.

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.
