Customer Questions & Answers

Does the water heater come with a base so it does not sit directly on the floor.

Asked by: jay
No, this unit sits directly on the floor.

On the natural gas connection, which type of sealant should I use on thread?

So basically I am asking best way to seal the threads coming from the black iron pipe to the water heater itself. Best type of line between the two as well? Thanks
Asked by: scotta
On pipe threads, use a thread sealer that states it is compatible with gas systems. You can use paste thread sealer, or teflon tape that is compatible with gas (usually yellow tape instead of white). Do not use any thread sealer on flare fittings, and tighten them just enough to get a good seal. You MUST test for leaks after pressurizing the system and before introducing a flame to the vicinity. Easiest way to do this for DYI is by swabbing each connection with a mixture of dish detergent and water. Wait for several minutes to see if bubbles grow.

Performance Plus 40 Gal. Tall 9 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1262.
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.

I knew very little about water heaters, and was able to research almost everything I needed on the Home Depot site. I replaced the water heater, the expansion tank, the venting pipe and ended up also replacing the water pressure regulator to the home. It took me a couple of trips to home depot as i was learning about plumbing but i was able to research on line and order the water heater and pick it up in the store. This is a very good unit, i read the reviews and researched an am happy with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Home Depot Install Service The water heater works great! The issue I have is: The sales person told me about the Home Depot Installation and entered my information into a device he had. When I got hone I call the number and they quoted me $792 to install the $529 water heater. I felt this was an outrageous price! I contacted a local contractor who quoted me (????) per hour and it would be about 2 and half hours. They came out the next morning and replaced and installed it in 2 hours. If you write a product review follow the rules or Home Depot will reject it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice waterheater Water heater is nice, and was not hard to install, a very disappointed with Home Depots installation service--was extremely expensive & I opted to find my own plumber to do the job instead. Home Depot did not offer a reasonable install for this product, was 3 xs the cost of a local plumber.

I'm 65 went to Home Depot,picked up this water heater,went ti install(hired someone)and there was a big dent on the side.Took the heater back,replaced,hired the guy again,after all the hook ups,the pilot would not lite.Called the emergency # ,explained the problem,they said it was the ignitor inside the heater,and since it was the holidays,I would have to wait the next week for the part.Received the part,again called the guy to install it,and finally it worked.It was 5 days without hot water............total disgrace,never buy a Rheem or purchase an appliance again from Home Depot!!!

Couldn't return it to Home Depot as the installer was on-site and I needed it installed that day. I called Rheem and registered a complaint and they assured me the location and depth of the damage would not affect the operation of the unit. Luckily, the damage was on the top backside of the unit and not readily noticeable, so it was installed. I'll call Home Depot and negotiate a credit for the damage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't fufill warranty I bought 4 top of the line waters heaters from Home Depot. The pilot light kept extinquishing on one of the water heaters. I called their support line, and to their credit they did send me a new valve free of charge. They told me to submit the receipt for the plumbers charge, which I did. I never heard back from them, and after following up a couple times I have given up.
