Will this work if the power goes out??

Will this work if the power goes out??
Asked by: AB
Unless you have some type of electric pump getting water to the heater itself, yes. I've had mine for nearly 3 years without a single issue.

Does this have any foam insulations?

Does this have any foam insulations?
Asked by: Ro
Nothing visible, but it is heavily insulated. I don't live with extreme winters. I don't think an extra blanket is necessary.

Customer Reviews

Performance Plus 50 Gal. Tall 9 Year 36,000 BTU High Efficiency Ultra Low NOx Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy install!! Installation only took about 1.5 hours. This includes removing old water heater, installing new one, earthquake straps, all hookups and lighting it. I could hardly believe it, had to recheck all my work. But it was all good. It really is super quiet, you barely know it's on. There is a cool status light to let you know all is well. Only had it for 1 month but looking forward to YEARS of hot water. I HIGHLY recommend this product for the ease of installation alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! We had a 12 year warranty on our previous 50 gallon Reliance (AO Smith) water heater and it was having issues at 11 years. After many attempts to correct the problem, a good friend of mine in the HVAC business advised Rheem was the brand he recommended. I purchased and installed our new 50 gallon Performance Plus unit and am very pleased with it. The new control with LED indicator appears to be great new technology.
Date published: 2017-04-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pressure relief valve in wrong place Pressure relief valve on the side is not convenient to getting it in the small space and hooking up to discharge pipe already in the wall which is higher than the valve. Most heaters have it on top as steam rises to the top. If the plug on top is another place to relocate it, than a one inch deep socket is required. Not a Common Size to find! You made it unnecessarily difficult to install for what reason?
Date published: 2017-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great. Easy Installation. We had a water heater that was 20+ years old and well out of it's warranty. We decided to be proactive and buy a new one before something bad happened. I'm glad we did. This new furnace works great and gives our family plenty of hot water. I also really like the push button igniter and blue status light that tells me everything is working properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful hot water heater I just had this water heater installed on 5-4-17. This was the best thing I have had done to my house in a long time. The set up was quick easy and fast. The unit made hot water VERY fast and when taking a shower, the hot water seems endless. A wonderful find for the price. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
Date published: 2017-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes water hot I like the contemporary features of this appliance, big improvement over my last water heater. Bottom line: It works. It makes water hot. It's efficient and hopefully will last as long if not longer than my last Rheem water heater.
Date published: 2017-06-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Product is good. It provides many options, seems to work well. I have installed it (which was done by my neighbor) very clean but only 2 weeks old. I purchased the 9yr heater so we will see 9 years later..
Date published: 2017-04-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a water heater. Heats water My only complaint is that the know is too small, and the marking on the knob is impossible for an old guy to see without getting on his knees with a flashlight.
