Questions & Answers

HI Just installed 50 gal. 9 year. Light show power and top element lit but lower element light unlit. suggestions?

Asked by: Dennis
In residential electric water heaters only one element comes on at a time. When your unit is cold (first installed or if power has been off for some time) the upper element comes on first and once the upper 1/3 is satisfied it transfers power to just the bottom element. From then on the bottom element does the bulk of the heating. The only time the upper element may come back on is when you have used a lot of hot water (filling a bath tub for instance).

If Home Depot does not have the water heater in stock they should be able to special order it for you.

Our units come in three sizes: Short, Medium, and Tall. Shorts are short and wide. Mediums are a bit taller and thinner. Talls are the tallest and thinnest.

Performance Plus 50 Gal. Medium 9 Year 5500/5500-Watt Elements Electric Water Heater with LED Indicator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 483.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Installation Installed 2 days ago; so far so good. Water was hot within 20 minutes after applying power. The only issue I have is the manual does not address the fact that both elements do not operate at the same time. Element operation should be clarified, particularly for individuals lacking experience with installing/operating water heaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from trying to understand bought and had it installed 5/25/2017. Trying to understand lights and what they mean. At first water was not lasting to long in showering

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely efficient I installed it and within 2 hours I had hot water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far good Still to early to know but seems to function well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still works after the first week and a half! So far so good. Usually don't review products, but I thought it was quite silly that they wanted me to write a review after only ten or eleven days, so here it is. It still works just like it was brand new. I sincerely hope it continues to do so for a long time. It was similar to install with any other water heater I've installed (3 or 4, so not many)...so there's that. It looks good, and seems to run very quiet. Other than that, time will be the judge. Maybe ask someone who's had one for a few years. THAT would be a worthwhile review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Installed this 50 gal electric water heater a week ago. Installation was a snap, no issues, since I was replacing a 20 yr old unit of like demensions. Easy, one person installation if you are a "doiturselfer" and have a few essential tools. Had hot water in what seemed like now after flipping circuit breaker back on. Hard to give a rating to something only a week old, but if it gives us 20 trouble-free years like the one it replaced, then it would garner a 5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rheem Electric HW Heater Replaced Rheem propane WH with electric a month ago. NJ requires permit but allows homeowner to do electrical - which I did. Licensed plumber removed LP unit, installed electric unit. Since then I don't even know its there. Runs quieter and works just as good as LP unit. In addition it was $500 less than comparable Rheem LP unit AND it has longer warrantee. Didn't rate reliability since it's only month old. LP unit lasted 10yrs (electronics went).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rheem water heater Seems to work well at this time but did have a question about LED indicator. Called the number on water heater and kept going around in circles. It would take me back to start. I played the game of dog chasing it's tail and finally figured it out. So I'm concerned if a problem really does develop what do I do. Doesn't sound as I depend on on the service people if I can't get through on phone number given.
