      400 +$ for 7 months of service
      This product is made with poorly controlled parts and backed with horrible customer service. My family and I received 3 months of service, at 7 months, failed completely. Home depot claims no responsibility without $ extended warranty. Not recommended.

        easy to light
        This water heater is great so far, my only issue is the temp. , I have it set to "hot" but the water temp. is actually 131' at the faucet. that seems a bit to hot but I can not adjust it any lower. is this a normal temp reading for hot? Do the rest of you guys out there that own one have this issue? I would hate to set this thing on a-b-or c. That I sure would melt my skin off....other than that seems great

          The product worked well to replace my 25 year old previous water heater. The heights were similar which made the change easy since most connections (gas & exhaust) were close to the original locations. Once the plumbing was done, getting it started was simple. Only been in use for about 3 weeks, but so far it's been a good purchase.

          This special order unit was built in Mexico a day after I placed the order and paid. The reason why I special ordered this unit was to NOT have to re-plumb the expansion tank and valve directly above the old tank. (new one is a few inches shorter and wider) The new unit's intake was vented directly through the perforated sides instead of close to the bottom. This meant that I couldn't use the old support stand or pan, as the stand was a 'hugging' type that fit snugly around the old pan. Even though the special order took more than 5 weeks to arrive in store, extensive planning made for a very smooth replacement experience that only took a couple of hours. The water heater is working great for just over a month now. MY expectations were met and my only complaint is that the main large sticker at the top of the unit is peeling off.

          Great water heater
          It’s been a week and this heater has about a 25 minute recovery time after running hot water for 25 minutes. I’m satisfied for it being the 6 year tank. The paint and the insulation on this tank very nice . They kept the dimensions almost the same as the Rheem from 10 years ago which I replaced and was 10 years old and still worked . This is Cleveland area hard water if your tank is 10 years old time to replace .Instructions was great too for operating .

            While there were some issues as follows, overall I am very impressed. I was skeptical of the new back check valves and they were a bit of a pain to get the connections to seal to. Its a bit fatter than the old short one, I knew taller and had the room, so a bit more crowded but ok. Interesting to me was that I shut it down over night to monitor next day and it had held the heat while the old one (20 years) would not. I think I can leave it on one setting dial wise and get good hot water as needed. I would not be surprised if its the info is true and it saves a fair amount of money was the Hot Water heater is a constant month in month out cost summer or winter.
