Rated 5 out of 5 by Hot Water is a Good Thing It has been two months since I installed this unit and it's working like it's suppose to. Before this purchase I spent some time on-line comparing water heaters and decided on this Rheem. Help from a neighbor in removing the old heater from a 20" high platform and putting this 170 lb Rheem in its place. Water lines and gas line connected and now time to fire it up. Had to follow the lighting instructions step 2 thru 6 three times before the pilot would light. Turned the temperature between A and B on the dial and had hot water in about one hour. Water temp has stayed at 135 degrees at this setting. Soldering/installing new copper line for the relief valve, this DIY'er spent approx 3 1/2 hours installing. Looking forward to many years of hot water. The heater looks nice also. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peace of mind! Almost on que our 10 year old water heater went out. I wanted a similiar size to the old one and this model fit the bill. Although it's the same capacity as the old one it's physically about 25% bigger than the 2004 Kenmore it replaced. (extra insulation I assume). Has a plumber install it for me since some copper pipes needed some attention. Smooth installation. I put a Cash-Acme Heatguard Tank Booster on mine. (itself a great product at Home Depot). I have a water-softenor, so I figure I'm set for hot water for a long long time. October 11, 2014
