Asked by: wil
"Point of Use" do not come with a drain valve. The unit will need to be drained through the hot and cold water nipples.

Where is unit manufactured?

Asked by: bob
Well it is a Richmond water heater but looks identical to the Rheem water heaters and is actually made by Rheem. I wish they were made in America, Home of the free and Land of the Brave but I believe they are made in Mexico. But mine is working well

is it 120 v how many amps

Asked by: huff
The manual says "2-1/2 gallon models are supplied with a plug connected power supply cord for use only in 120 VAC applications." The web page says the 15-gallon model is also 120v but is it the case that it doesn't come with a supply cord but instead requires field wiring? The amp rating depends on the wattage of the model. However, the wattage is not specifically identified in the manual, but it does say: "The voltage requirements and wattage load for the water heater are specified on the rating plate on the front of the water heater." I don't have a unit to check this rating plate. I'd like to know what the wattage rating is on the 15-gallon model. Manual:

Customer Reviews

15 gal. 6 Year Electric Point-of-Use Electric Water Heater is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little water heater Works as advertised. We are using it to heat water for a shower and bathroom sink in our Alaska home. I installed it connected to a timer to save electric cost. 4 stars because it doesn't have an indicator to tell when it is on and heating. Also the electric connector is on the wrong side for the way I did the install so the cable has to go around the heater a bit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Damaged Merchandise Water Heater came damaged. Looked like it had been dropped. Shell was dented and the drain valve was broken. Still usable and couldn't wait to install, so we replaced the damaged drain valve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Tank did not have a separate sediment drain which I needed because I have well water with a lot of sediment. Even store plumber was surprised when I went back to store to explain this. I would have taken it back but had to order on line because none of area stores had one and I needed a tank ASAP. Tank was also expensive for it's size.
