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 1740.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This weekend I replaced my 10 yr old Kenmore Water Miser 9 50 gallon water heater with the new Rh... 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.

My brother in law helped me replace this one for a blown out fat body 40 gallon heater with the same specs. It went in fine and the installation is nice and clean and looks and works great. I especially like the gas valve setup for starting and to keep an eye on the pilot (it blinks a blue light periodically to show you the pilot light is still lit - no battery so I guess the LED works off the thermocouple generated electricity). I give it my best rating (2nd water heater I've replaced myself or with help in two houses).

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.

Installation was fairly easy except the old heater was a few inches shorter and the plumber neglected to use a union, so I had to cut the pipes. Suggest the use of flexible stainless steel hose Homedepot SKU #1001555703 to speed connection. Liked the easy pilot light ignitor and flashing LED.

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.

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.
