No the blanket is only for the old model water heaters. The new ones don’t require a blanket.

Can you vent this tank with pvc pipe?

Asked by Andrew October 7, 2018
6
Answers

Well it's physically possible but you might be creating a red flag if it was to be inspected b y your local authority and the difference in cost from brass might save your $10 or $!5 but brass looks great doesn't warp, degrade except natural aging causing gradual darkening noticeable after a few years but just be careful to wipe off the pipe as fingers etc. make it tarnish unevenly. But of course PVC is safe and possibly legal if you are willing to get yourself a permit if you are the owner of the house. If your not the owner put in what you want.

It's a good water heater but I really think it's a very bad idea to have a completely flat bottom. There is no standoff or even rim to pull the metal bottom off the floor. This means even a small amount of moisture has no way of easily evaporating. Most other heaters have legs or ridges to allow air circulation. Hopefully it won't rust. Overall I like the reem products but this seems like a crucial flaw.

just installed a couple of weeks ago, everything seems to be working great. I started on the high setting but it was to hot so now it's set on low which it great, way more efficient that my 20 yr old one. When you light the pilot the first time you need to look upwards through the glass window to see that it's lit.

Delivered and professionally installed. Sensor didnt work not once giving an error 9 code. Called rheem customer support sucked but luckily my professional installer told them send the sensor or he takes back the water heater to get another. Rheems home troubleshooting of a subpar product stopped right away and they will be sending a new sensor. Not suprised rheems customer support hardly knew english or anything about water heaters.... Im sure it will all work fine in the near future but if i would have known a new unit for 1500.00 i would still have to wait 4 days for hot water i would have bought a different brand somewhere else so my wife and newborn have warm water. As for the installer id give him 5 stars as he knew what he was doing and couldnt have changed the outcome.

Bad thermocoupler out if the box
Everything hooked up as planned. But would only run for a minute before it would shut off and the led would flash red. Called support and was on hold for 32 minutes. End result is they’re going to send me a new part and have a technician call me. Estimating the repair to be 3 or 4 days from now. No hot water for 3 or 4 days on equipment I bought 5 hours ago. Not awesome

Know that when you pay more for the "high performance heaters" you are basically buying oone that is expected to last longer, such as in a 9 or 12 year vs this this is at 6 years. You're basically paying for an extra anode rod. Minerals in the water attack metal, and manufacturers put in anode rods so the minerals attack the anode rod first. After the anode rod is eaten up it attacks the tank, causing it to leak. Tanks with longer warranties usually have dual anode rods. Commercial water heaters have 3-4 anode rods, typically with an option to add a 5th one in the clean out(residential water heaters don't have a clean out). Yes, you can get this basic model with one anode rod but know that is it is extremely hard to change out. The anode rod itself is only $10-20 but you need a commercial grade impact driver, not your typical one for screwing in deck screws. The house I installed this Rheem in said they used to have to turn the temperature on the highest setting to get hot water. With the new tank, they only had to turn it to "A" and it's just as hot. They were probably heating up a few inches of calcium deposit. Attached are pictures of an anode rod I've been able to get out along with the amount of calcium I've removed from a 100 gallon, 100,000 BTU commercial water heater; over 30 lbs of it after 8 years!
