Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended by a professional The Rheem was recommended to me by a professional HVAC contractor and after 6 months on the job, the unit continues to work perfectly. I'm not interested in lowest installed cost. I'm interested in lowest operation cost over the life of the product and this water heater penciled out to be the best value. It's also more environmentally friendly and keeps water hotter, longer without having to "gas up." December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by does the job it was intended for Brand new water heater replaced one week before we moved in and works great for 4 adults in home. December 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great! We bought this product about 6 months ago and we are very satisfied with it! December 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even "power showers" won't stop it! Almost on cue, our ten year old water heater stopped working. Wanting the same specs I bought this quality Rheem product. Had a plumber do the install for me and have had zero issues ever since. Efficient and an energy saver! December 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by our home water heater Easy installation, some so called professional, that was recommended by the selling dealer, wanted double the price of the water heater to install a $500.00 water heater, December 10, 2014
