    How to Choose Your Rheem EcoSense Tankless Electric

    Choose your application, ie. shower, bath tub or vanity sink-faucet, kitchen sink faucet or washer. See chart below.

    For example: you choose a kitchen sink faucet.


    See application chart below and locate your flow rate. For example: your flow rate is 1.5 gpm.


    On the map, locate the average water temperature in your area.

    For example: your water temperature (in Atlanta) is 55°


    Use the water temperature and flow rate chart to determine the model you need.

    For example: 1.5 gpm flow rate + 55° = RETE 9.

I've installed 3 of these units and they have either failed to work immediately or they failed within a year of use. The most recent one that I installed (today) powers on into Standby, but the heating elements do not energize. Sending this one back for a full refund...AGAIN.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a good product, But it does not make very hot water. This product does not produce sufficent amounts of hot water. I had to turn down the incoming flow in order to even get the little bit I got. When I called to get help, I got transfered from dept to dept. I never did get an answer to the questions I asked. I was finialy transfered to Warranty. They never did answer the phone. I was on hold, on my cell phone, for a total of 65 min. This problem was on the manufactures level not Home Depot.
