What should the distance be between floor and ceiling to be able to have this water heater?

Asked by: Slo
The total height is over 60 inches so I recommend at least 6 feet to allow a bit of room for the connections. 7 feet is much better, though, or close to 7 feet if not all of the height is available. Yiu also need room for the exhaust hookup.

Asked by: jack
make sure the gas valve (controls) are on top. This is clearly marked on the box. Avoid sharp bumps. It would be best to wait to unpackage it until it is in the area to be installed.

Performance Plus 40 Gal. Tall 9 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1785.

This weekend I replaced my 10 yr old Kenmore Water Miser 9 50 gallon water heater with the new Rheem Performance Plus 40 gallon unit (regulations have changed so sizing is different!). Anyway, after reading many reviews on the offerings from Home Depot & Lowes, the Rheem offerings were a clear standout. After opening the box when I got home I can see why. Installation was a breeze and the instructions were clear and easy. Highly suggest this water heater for those of you who are looking! Ps, I replaced my previously soldered emergency drain with a flex hose with "shark bite" fitting - also highly recommended.

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 5 out of 5 by from Superior Hot Water Heater I chose this model over the most expensive model because the warranty and quality is excellent and I didn't see $125 more value in the top model. I did replace the plastic drain faucet with a brass one. (I've had trouble with the plastic ones leaking and it's much easier to replace it when the tank is new plus it was only $7.00). The one thing that surprized me is that this tank is the same capacity as my original but over 6" taller and 1" wider than my original. The insulation and design is much better than my original. I really like the convenient lighting and control system. It too is superior to anything I've had in the past. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this unit.

We had to pay to get this inst alled and now itmis leaking and cannot get any customer service.. How long does it take to get a phone call. We have called Rheem-they tellus to call another company who only has answering service and no return calls from them. We just need this taken care of so we can have hot water.

Now it will cost me another $200 for a technician to come onsite to fix it....I would not recommend this at all...don't waste your money on Rheem...they need to have a better support and warranty and product.

HOT WATER TANK called 1-855-400-2552 to have this tank installed into my home. $469 installation removal of old tank. This tank is almost as much as the installation. I don't mind paying the $ for the tank. But to pay just as much for installation! THAT'S NON-SENSE!!!!!

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.
