Q:Where is the sacrificial anode rod located in this water heater? We do not see it on top and there is no side or 360 view to learn if it is on the side. We have to install inside a closet type space so must know the location

    Q:Rheem Gladiator 50 Gal. Tall 12-Year 4500W Electric Tank Water Heater with Leak Detection, Auto Shutoff - WA, OR Version Will a dripping faucet cause the Leak Detection to initiate auto shut down?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi mofish and thank you for your question. Power to know: built-in LeakSense leak detection system alerts you of any leak large or small, internal or external. The auto shutoff will only shut the unit down if it detects water at the base of the water heater. it would not detect a leaking faucet.

      Answer This Question

      A:  TB93, Thank you for your question. The water heater should be installed in a clean dry area as near as practical to the area of greatest heated water demand. Long un-insulated hot water lines can waste energy.

          I Thought that the delivery service would ring the doorbell before they delivered to my front door instead of the garage where it was going. I had to move from front door to garage area my self.

          Home Depot staff was very helpful. Easy to install. Remember to purchase the Input & Output flex hoses & a 4' to 8' pvc pipe for relief valve & drain pan.
