Questions & Answers

How much labor charge for installation

Asked by: Ramina
The plumber referred by Home Depot quoted me almost $900 for installation of a basically identical unit, identically sized, identically plumbed, easy outside door install, with no haul-away of the old unit. After I asked him to repeat himself, I burst out laughing. He tried to tell me that if I installed it myself, it would void the warranty. Luckily, I knew that that was nonsense. I installed it myself with the help of a guy friend in less than an hour. I am semi-handy and he is handy, but it is not hard. Well worth it to save almost $900!!!

Is this a direct vent water heater?

Asked by: Jon
no this is not a direct vent water heater direct venting is a sealed circuit of air pipe binging outside air to burn and blowing it out as exhaust as most 90%+ furnaces (two plastic pipes) or most high efficiency tankless water heaters

My water pressure dropped and one bathroom after installation?

Asked by: Nana13
Sorry, mine increased. The water pressure could be less because there is sediment in the pipe or in the spigots of the. I know when my water pressure is low, it is something is in the faucet.

Customer Reviews

Performance 40 Gal. Short 6 Year 34,000 BTU Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 498.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rheem has the worst customer service The customer service rep from rheem purposely gave me the wrong the information. She was obviously spitefu, incompetent, and she brushed me off. She was not willing to help find a solution to my problem in a speedy way or in a way that did not require me to physically change this defective unit my self. After serveal questions went unanswered I was openly lied to about the return policy at Home Depot that it would also result in my warranty being voided. That we can only get the replacement part for the broken gas valve and that the rust was a non issue. The water heater is under 60 days old from purchase. Under two months my unit has become degraded by rust and corrosion through no fault of our own, all the while the gas control valve has become non functional leaving my family stranded and my guests stranded over the holiday with no hot water. This is clearly a manufacturer defect or poor quality control standards that has let this unit become available on the market. Home Depot did the right thing and let me return the defective unit.

I have an issue where the water is not heating properly. I was sent parts (seriously..with instructions)that required a certified plumber to replace. $260.00 later, it is still not working and the support team is giving me a run around on replacement of the product even though the certified plumber in the state of Colorado indicted the heater should be replaced. Water heaters must be installed and worked on by a licensed plumber in our state. Disconnecting gas lines and working with electricity is not what a layman should be doing. I also question Home Depots integrity in displaying and selling this product with the many negative reviews on this site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Replacement Great replacement for our old one that was 22 years old! Was surprisingly not horribly heavy. Was super easy to hook up. I am 51, this was my first water heater replacement. I was terrified to do it as a DIY project, but was pleasantly surprised how easy it was!! So glad I did not pay someone hundreds of dollars to do it!! Once it was unpacked I just rolled it across the floor on the bottom slowly and put it into position. The hardest part of the entire installation was getting the 20+ year old gas pipe to loosen. This was set up and ready to go in less than an hour. Used the Shark Bite connectors for the water pipes which made it a breeze, and a flexible gas line so I didn't have to mess with making the gas piping adjustments. Modern technology is amazing!! Took a few tries to get it lit, but once we did it was smooth sailing.

My fiance and I installed ourselves, took about 3 hours (we aren't professionals, DIY learners) from draining old tank to completion of new. Using Sharkbite connectors from old copper tubing made it quite easy. Followed the clear and concise instructions on the outside of Rheem box, tank went it like a champ. Only been two weeks, but GREAT RESULTS so far. A great decision in our opinion.

Had to replace the old defective rheem with another because the configuration of the water heater provided for an easier installation. The last one had to have warranty service to replace the thermocouple 4 times. Ugh! I sure hope this new one provides better service because I certainly am very unhappy with the Rheem brand!!!

Because of the new mandate for water heaters being more energy efficient most are now to big to fit in the older outdoor utility huts. This particular Rheem Model will fit with minimal rework to the supply pipes and the vent stack saving you from purchasing a new Hut costing more than the heater.
