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.

is the tank insolation sufficiant or is a insolation blanket needed ?

Asked by: jd
No insulation blanket is needed for this hot water heater, it stays cool to the touch on it's own.

Customer Reviews

Performance Plus 50 Gal. Tall 9 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1275.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected Easy install and comes with pressure relief valve already installed. Only problem was big dent on lower side of water heater not visible until you remove carton. By the time you notice it the thing is already out of the box, down in the basement and how would you return it. I see from other reviews I am not the only one with that problem. Since I didn't think it would effect the operation of the unit I chose to just install it as is. It worked fine. Memo to Home Depot, don't handle these things like they are bowling pins.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rheem Customer service / warranty is terrible I purchased this unit exactly 2 years ago this month, and it worked fine until now. The gas valve unit apparently is now defective. We contacted a plumber that was recommended on the Rheem website. The plumber identified the issue as a faulty gas valve, but Rheem customer service insisted that he try to replace the burner first. Five days later, the new burner finally arrived! We called the plumber back out, and he replaced the burner. Unit still does not work, and Rheem finally agreed to send the parts that the plumber indicated were needed, but it will now be another "2 to 3 days" until the next part gets here. All together, we will be without any hot water for well over a week while we wait for their great "warranty" service. What good is paying more for the 9 year warranty when they wont support the product? According to the plumber, this issue only is because we bought from Home Depot. If we bought from a dealer, we would have been able to get it repaired the same day we first called.

Purchased this product on 12-31-2016 and installed the water heater with no problem. the Nightmare is trying to get the pilot to lite!!! I called the Rheem customer service and tried trouble shooting, after an hour of trouble shooting Rheem stated the Honeywell gas control was defective. after researching on internet this is a very common problem and gas control is garbage. Home depot does not carry the gas control, so you have to wait two to three business days for replacement part. not what I expected when buying a new unit and being without hot water for 5 days since Sunday and Monday were considered holidays. I recommend buying a home depot extended warranty because you will have constant issues with the Honeywell gas control. Home Depot needs to start carrying the replacement so you can fix same day.

The first hour available gallons is similar to the model replaced with slightly better energy rating. Tanks have changed since my last install 14+ years ago. The good news is that that most of the connections are in the same place! Also learned that the 6-9-12 year tanks are all the same, but have different warranties. The tank being replaced was a 12 year warranty and it lasted 14+ years (I replaced the tank on first leak, but many folks wait for a more major leak? Seems like it is better to replace when it is a little issue and not a major issue). The 9 year warranty tank was a little more than the 6 year tank, but a lot less expensive than the 12 year tank. DIY installation notes: Had to pull permit and have inspection (state requirement - since it is a gas unit always good to double check). Chat with inspector indicated a pan might be needed (which is easier to install from the start). New tank doesn't have feet, so I cut some left over cement board (four 4x9 rectangles)) to sit the tank on in case the bottom would get wet (to allow it to dry out). Although the connections were in the same location, the height of everything was different, so gas and plumbing all had some alterations.

The installation was easy, so was the start up of the unit. We like that we are able to peek through the little glass window and see the burner, and also the flashing light indicating that the unit is working well. The temperature adjustment knob is within easy reach. Everything that we need to check and adjust routinely is within easy reach. So far, it has worked very well and met our expectations. We are completely satisfied with it.

I read about some issues with the Wifi options because of the poor add-on wifi device that you need to purchase, so I'm not going to bother with using the WIFI feature until such time as those problems are remediated. I use the VACATION mode frequently as this is in my vacation house. Solid operation for the three months I've used it.

It's been hearing my water for about two weeks now without any issues. Seems it can get a lot hotter than my old one. I have it on a lower setting than I used to and have really hot water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good We bought this water heater online about three weeks ago. It was very quick and easy to pick up in the store. The installation wasn't too bad. I recommend you invest in some flexible hoses to hook everything up at the top of the tank. Other than that, it's been working great. No complaints here.
