Questions & Answers

What size circuit breaker is required?

Asked by: jj
3800 / 240 = 15.83a, so use a dual 20a breaker.

Will this heater provide continuous hot water after its 20 gallons are used up or does the water turn cold?
Asked by: Andy
If you are using 1 GPM for 8 minutes, then wait 30 minutes, it will reheat to starting temperature. It will reheat much faster with warmer inlet water, such as 65F in Arizona, while 45F water in Montana will take longer. If you need more instant water, i suggest a 11 KW instant water heater to preheat the water going into this heater. It could warm 2 GPM about 30F (above your ground water temperature) so the tank full of water will last much longer.

Is there one or two heating elements on the 20 gallon Rheem water heater?

Asked by: Ladyhawk
There are two heating elements, 3,800 watts each, and the upper thermostat will turn off the lower element when the upper element is cooler than the set point. Once the top of the tank is above the set point, the upper element will go off, and allow the lower element to run. Once the lower element is hot, then both will stay off until more cold water enters, cooling the lower element that will start heating first. So wattage is limited to 3,800 watts or about 16 amps at 240 volts.

Performance 20 Gal. Short 6 Year 3800/3800-Watt Elements Electric Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1045.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Item was damaged; TPV valve needed to be replaced Bought and installed and then found out the TPV was leaking; it was damage. Many days without hot water. I had to turn breaker off, unit was too hot. TPV valve was replaced but still have problems with unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Specific Size I bought this 40 gallon Rheem heater a couple of weeks ago. I have very liminted space for the heater, that is why I bought this specific one. (19" diameter, my old one was 17"). It works fine (although not as hot as the old one), however the container has gaps where the bottom is screwed on to the outer cover same for the top. I am concerned that the openings will collect dirt and dust. I did not discover it until it was completely installed otherwise I would have taken it back. The plumber does not think there will be a problem and recommened I tape the areas with foil tape. I think it is a manufacturer poor assembly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fits the bill Installed this to replace a 13 year old GE heater which started showing signs of leaking internally and intermittently tripping the circuit breaker. Installation was straight forward simplified by using shark bite fittings. There was a significant dent at the bottom and in retrospect I should have paid more attention to some minor damage to the bottom of the carton it came in. Manufacturer might consider better packaging. In the end I decided the damage would not affect functionality and for the sake of expediency decided to ignore it. It's been functioning just fine for about a month now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bought two... one was damaged out of the bix Recently purchased and installed two units. They are working fine. One heater had a large dent when I unboxed it but the outside of the box showed no sign of impact. I'm assuming it was packed that way which causes me to wonder about the quality control. Since these are in my attic I decided to live with the dent rather than haul it back down three flights of stairs to return it and then have to repeat the process of hauling it back into the attic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to last right here in Alabama! Had A Rheem installed in my new house in 1997. Water here is terrible, lime filled more than a quarter of my old tank. Even in such harsh conditions that thing lasted 20 years until she sprung a leak.. So it was a no brainer another Rheem from Montgomery,Al. was going to replace the other. Similar features made installation a snap. Will finally once again be heating a full tank of water and not a bunch of lime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great WH to self install I bought this a few days ago and installed. Chose this route after ridiculous plumber quotes and non performing home warranty with extensive out of pocket costs from the vendor. Hardest part was moving old water heater. The Rheem s easy to install. 3 pipes to install. Used the shark bite instead of sodering. Very happy with the Unit and the install process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install I bought the Rheem 38 gal to replace the GE 30 (I believe it's the same manufacturer). Slide in was easy enough. I'm giving an good rating only because the GE model didn't seem to have a long lifespan (within 10 years). Fair counterpoint is I don't know what level of maintenance (if any) was ever completed before I moved in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pros & cons A water heater is a water heater. It heats water. I have a Sepco WH I bought in 1983 that's still going strong. Its stone lined. I also have a 316 as tank II leaked in 5 years. The glass lined tanks are good for the price. They will last for 6 -7 yrs. If you flush yearly a,nd replace mag rod they will last 12 yrs plus.
