Customer Questions & Answers

does this water heater come with a pressure. relief valve installed?

no it does not

Are legs required for the unit? If not does the unit sit flat on the elevated platform?

Asked by: martha
If located within the house you may be required to set it in a pan with a drain to meet code. If located in a garage you need to have it off the floor but you may not need a pan. Check with your city plumbing inspector for requirements - a must prior to contracting for installation, even if you decide to use HD.

will this work in a manufactured home?

will this work in a manufactured home?
Asked by: marcus
The answer is, of course, it depends. Is there sufficient space in the home for it? Are there enough sinks/appliances and showers to require a 50 gallon tank? If the answer is yes, then it will work for you.

Performance Plus 50 Gal. Tall 9 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1775.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old General Electric 50 gallon 12-year warrantied hot water tank 9 months into it's thirteenth ye... Old General Electric 50 gallon 12-year warrantied hot water tank 9 months into it's thirteenth year of use. Purchased a replacement at Home Depot and noticed they are now only stocking Rheem which I have never tried before. I did note the prices of all these hot water tanks are quite cost prohibitive however when you need hot water for the home you cannot quibble over price. I compared pricing on a 9year tank to Rheem's "top of the line" 12 year tank and decided why cough up almost $200 more just for an added 3 more year warranty? Went with the 9year 50gal tank and installed it with a good friend and buddy and had it up and running in a little bit more than a hours time. No leaks and fired up problem free however I am still cautious on Rheem reliability and quality issues. Quite a few of the reviews posted on Home Depot voiced horror stories varying from damaged tanks in pristine unblemished packaging, inability to light and the dreaded DOA's after install. Either I was extremely fortunate or Rheem quality issues have finally been resolved. I am NOT too happy however with the warranty as it is explained once you register your tank on the Rheem website. Warranty starts the moment the tank is made in the factory....what if you purchase a tank which has been sitting on the shelf for a year? A 9 year warrantied tank now becomes just a 8 year warranty. This is NOT Home Depot's fault but instead Rheen is culpable and plain deceptive. Rheem is now using cheap plastic drain valves which for me is NOT good to have or even see. Appearance of a plastic drain valve cheapens Rheem branding but more importantly is prone to leaks down the road. The good news currently is this new tank no longer uses analog gas valves and controls. In it's place is a completely digital gas valve and digital controls with piezo electric ignition, a thermopile to power the electronics. Insulation and sound proofing on these Rheem tanks are simply amazing....I simply cannot hear when the burners cycle up. Energy ratings even surpasses my old failed tank and it was extremely energy efficient.

Luckily the old heater had a warranty and I did not pay for this new unit. But Home Depot installation/labor cost is just outrageous. It was installed in 1 1/2 hour and I was charged over $1000. Yes, the service was very fast, but taking advantage of people in distress - in my opinion is criminal. For a piece of a 36" copper pipe that was screwed into the relief valve I was charged extra $110 - really! I accepted all this only because the plumber I know, is away for a long vacation and as a family of 5 being without hot water is a major problem.

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.

It has been fine up to this point, we have had plenty of hot water for a family of four, until last night. The pilot light went out and when I went to restart it , we got the Gas Control Valve Failure code. I tried all methods I could find on the internet of resetting the control valve, including taking it apart, unhooking the wire, and letting it sit overnight. None of what I tried worked. I contacted Rheem on Saturday morning and thankfully our unit is still under warranty, including labor. They are sending out a new valve unit and having someone install it, but we will be without hot water for the next few days. I did not know this when I bought it, but apparently there has been tons of issues with the HoneyWell Valve assembly Rheem uses. Please google "Honeywell Water Heater Valve Failure" before you buy this, and make sure you are ok with the risk that it might go out on you in the first few years. I gave this a four star rating only because of the warranty. If this was out of warranty, the rating would be much lower due to the known Honeywell issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality I brought the unit home, spent several hours installing only to find out that the unit was dead right out of the box. The unit had a defective igniter / burner.
