    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.

RETE-3 - 3kW 0.09 GPM Point of Use Tankless Electric Water Heater is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Mistake First one I ordered did not get hot even though it said it was working. The second one never came on when water was turned on. After calling Rheem troubleshooting I was told the item I ordered would only increase incoming water temp by about 10 to 15 degrees. Why they even make such a poor item is beyond me.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A small space & energy saving water warmer The first unit lasted one day; it was quickly replaced by 800 HOME DEPOT. The water warmer (increasing temperature) over incoming works well (L-H) but there is no thermostat as the increase depends on the starting temperature. The problem with installation is the non-standard 1/2" water heater fittings; they are also of different threading than the building's standard plumbing. It took two HD helpers and I over 90 minutes to create a "fix" of adapters that required some soldering; no big issue, but using standard 1/2 or water heater 3/4 inch fitting would have made this a much easier DIY install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product does not provide sufficent heat Installed product everything seemed fine but would not heat water hot enough to be of any use
Date published: 2011-05-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insufficient The heater would increase 46 degree incoming water to only 60 degree. Incoming water too cold for insufficient heating capacity.
Date published: 2016-03-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product promised efficiency but did not deliver. Due to it's size and 110V easy connect I was looking forward to a good value and hot water. Even at 2 feet from the faucet the water did not get hot or reach the heat rise as advertised. After giving it a month to preform as promised I have removed it, hope Home Depot will take it back, and am looking at other brands. Meanwhile, not hot water at the sink.
