    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi ItsMe and thank you for your question. As long as local codes allow it can be.

    by|Feb 3, 2023

      A:  I could not see why it could not as many mobile homes have standard residential water heaters installed in them. Just make sure you have the correct power amperage available to correctly operate the unit.

          Q:What is self cleaning for a water heater and how does that work??
          by|Jan 30, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Hi Donald and thank you for your question. The self-cleaning water heater automatically circulates the water to reduce the sediment build-up. It is equipped with a fitting on a curved dip tube that swirls the water at the bottom of the tank. This stirs the sediments in the water that come out through a hot water outlet whenever you use hot water.

            Too early to tell whether this water heater is a 5 star rating. Install was easy, setup was easy, seems to work well but it's only been a month since it was installed. Hopefully the 12 year warranty will keep me from buying another one for a while!

            Thermopile not Thermocouple: Thermocouples are better and fail less. Sell replacement thermopiles at Home Depot? Of course not just thermocouples Plastic drain: In store cost $1 less than metal ones that never break which means it cost Rheem 10c less to install these Anode rod not magnesium: Why have ones that are healthy for you let alone are not neurotoxic? Because they want folks to be out of it enough to keep buying trash. Pressure valve: You get 5 uses before it leaks uncontrollably

                Nothing but a headache so far
                Hot water heater came out of the box completely dented up. Then there was a leak at the top of the unit when it was installed by the plumber. He installed it and we had to leave for an overnight trip. When we got home, no hot water. He came and did something, which made it work for thirty minutes before it blew the 15amp fuses. HD was closed so now this morning we're going to get 20 amp fuses and see what happens. This isn't over yet. I'm sure if it.

                  Design or manufacturing flaw?
                  Tank drain and pressure relief are 180° out placing the tank with the drain away from the wall means rthe presure relief is against the wal ad you can't place a bucket under it to drain the suggested "severa gallons" of water. I had to construct a pipe system using 1/2" PVC with mutiple elbows to brng the water around to my utility sink added hours to the install.

                    The worst product I have ever seen
                    The first one leaked and caused the trip of breaker and got second one replaced after dozens of calls. But the second leaked from the inside and behind the LED panel. We have to open the cover to check the sponges all the time. This is the replacement and we just go it in a week. This is an absolutely deficient model or the company is ruining their reputation with deficient products.

                      Here's the fix if your brand new heater leaks too
                      Brand new heater had a leak. Rheem phone support suggested I check the factory-installed anode rod. This rod should be installed with about 75 foot pounds of torque, but after I dug out the insulation, I found the factory never tightened the anode rod - it was finger tight! Partially drained tank, removed rod, teflon taped the threads, and reinstalled, and all good. Horrible quality control, clearly was never pressure tested at the factory. Kudos for their phone support though.

                        Leaking Junk!!
                        Bought Rheem because I thought they were top quality…boy was i wrong. Due to factory defects, it cost me almost double the normal labor because a plumber had to come out numerous times!! Leaking pressure valve, leaking inlets, leaking heating elements!! Ridiculous!! These are garbage…now ive gotta take it back and pay to have another new unit installed!!!
