So far, so good
Much more gooder hot water than the previous one, which was GE, built by Rheem. Then again maybe the original was just as hot, can't remember back to 2008. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

Water heater damaged and rusted
Not happy. Thought we were getting a new water heater and this looks like it is used. Rusted and dirty!! They need to come get this one and bring a new one!

    The product and the add-ons that were suggested, functions as advertised. It replaced a much larger 85 gallon Rheem that lasted for 15 years, which was longer than I expected. Overall, am very happy with the performance and the excellent installation services provided locally. The unit fits inside a closet area and installation required door removal, removal of the old unit, and ensuring all plumbing connections were made correctly, and then restoration of the area to it's original condition after the previous unit had leaked and stained the flooring (which is quarry tile).

    Awful Product
    2 water heaters within a month. All leaked from the top of the temperature and pressure. Did not leak from it, but rather from the threads. Would not recommend

      Plan on replacing it after 7 years
      I had this model installed 7 years ago (or so). It started leaking out of the top panel, which started the bottom panel leaking and there's water all over my garage floor. It worked fine up until this, but we now have to replace it on an immediate emergency basis rather than realizing that it's wearing out and being able to take a few days about it. But it's not a very expensive model, so you get what you pay for, I guess. I personally would recommend getting a model with a longer warranty period and preferably not a Rheem. A warranty period shouldn't be the same as a replacement period, in my opinion.

          Poor Quality
          After 6.5 years, inside tank failed allowing water into electrical connection up top just in time to exceed the 6 year warranty. Save your time and money and buy a Bradford-White if you can. These things are junk .

            Great water heater.
            Good looking tank. Easy installation! Hot water immediately. No more leaks. So far I'm very happy with it.
