Not well made
Bought the "best" of their small units from HD for my cottage. Just under 5 years and it already needs replacing. It lost heat, the unit leaks internally, its rusted out from behind the temperature & pressure valve. There's rust and water accumulation in the drip pan. Maybe they will replace it since its still under warranty, or maybe I'll have to pay a "price difference", which seems to be the opposite what a warranty is all about. Wont know until I disconnect it, drain it, haul it back to Home Depot and hope the associate doesn't become glassy-eyed with confusion when I try to explain it. Since this is the only Rheem product I've ever purchased, they have a 100% failure rate in my experience. I expect better from manufacturers of so-called "durable goods" like water heaters. In the future, as long as I have the option of any other brand available to me, I will not purchase another Rheem product.

    Excellent water heater! I picked a shorty so I could put a shelf above it for towels, it is in the utility closet in my bathroom. (Trailer) I went with the 30 gallon because the 38 wouldn't have fit through the doorway. It replaced a 16 year old 30 gallon Bradford White that did me just fine until it developed a small leak in the tank. I'm looking forward to a reduced electric bill. Estimated yearly cost of operation on the Bradford White was $555 compared to $293 on the Rheem. I have only had it for a day but initial operation went as smooth as could be! Zero issues, no leaks, nothing to complain about. I just let it fill up with the bathroom faucet opened up, purged all of the air out of the tank, flipped the breaker on, and I had hot water in no time! Heats MUCH faster than the one it replaced, no comparison. Time will tell how it really performs though. I flush the sediment out every 6 months and replace the anode rod every 2 years in my water heaters to get the most out of them. I recommend you do the same.

      The original water heater that was installed in my condo back in 2006 finally crapped out. I was able to purchase unit and have it installed the same day. It is a quality product even though it was a bit smaller at 38 gal vs the original 40 gal tank. Other than that it seems to be working just fine. Very happy with the product! Cost of the install was highway robbery because it was located inside versus in a garage or outside which doubled the price.

      Nice compact water heater.
      Our 40 gallon heater that was 25 years old died...and I wanted something more compact that I could put closer to the points of water usage. We were able to get this unit up on two levels of concrete blocks and on a plastic pan (we have a dirt floor basement so rising damp is a concern) AND under the basement stairs so we gained a lot of room. Wiring was simple, PEX tubing and sharkbite style fittings made this a cinch to install. Being able to put this water heater closer to our laundry and shower areas has made a huge difference in how much water we have to run before hot water comes out of the faucets....that's a good thing. I knock off a star because we opened the perfect cardboard box only to find a massive dent in the top rim. After a call to Rheem customer service who said that if the dent wasn't more than 2 inches deep the unit should be okay we installed it (I wasn't gonna haul it back up the basement steps and get another). I knock off a star because I don't think this huge dent is very good quality control. The unit is good - no leaks. But makes you wonder.

        Great for a tight space
        A few tips before you start. 1, shark bites make things easy. 2, install the insulation blanket before you install the water tank. 3, consider installing insulation on top before attaching Plumbing. If you do not you will need to cut through the insulation to get it past the plumbing. 4, the drain valve is 2 in off the ground. My aluminum drain pan was 2 and 1/2 inches high and required some bending to create the clearance. Measure your drain pan and be prepared to accommodate.

          Easy installation, quick recovery. Have not run out of hot water in the 2 weeks it's been here. Use it for washing clothes and hot water for loft. Rheem furnished new blanket and cover because cover was missing, received it in two business days.
