Questions & Answers

How much labor charge for installation

Asked by: Ramina
I just had 2 plumbers price installation of 40 gallon water heater. One is with a reputable company and the total will be about $1000 which includes the water heater, new vent pipe, new roof jack, new gas ball valve, stand and drain pain, with pop-off to the exterior (drill hole thru the wall). They say about 2 1/2 hours. Another guy wants $800 total package, I don't know what brand water heater. The company gives 5 year warranty parts and labor and 6 years on the water heater. The individual guy gives basically no warranty. I would say $1200 is high total package, and $800 is low. Much of it depends on how much your setup is already up to code.

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.

What is the water connection height?

What is the water connection height?
Asked by: Jodi
Water connections right at about 51” from bottom. I didn’t have much space in my basement but was still able to elevate it about 4” and have clearance for water and flute connections. Love it!

Performance 40 Gal. Short 6 Year 34,000 BTU Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 373.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install! Purchased this last night after I came home to find that my 11-year-old water heater had bit the dust. This one fit in the same footprint as a 30 gallon short, which was a bonus since we really needed more capacity. Installation was a snap, it was easy to transport as it seemed lighter weight than other tanks I've installed in the past, and the lighting process was much less nerve-wracking than other water heaters I've encountered before. Highly recommend for ease of installation! One comment to Rheem - it would be great to have a color photo of the burner pattern in the installation manual - the black & white/ grayscale photo isn't exactly helpful. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient control panel. Installation is about as easy as replacing a water heater ever is. With the new standards, the new water heater was taller then the old one. The connection spacing was also just a bit different. You may want to consider getting flexible line connections, both to make this job easier, and for the next time it needs to be replaced. The only connection that didn't need work was the gas hookup. I like the build-in igniter. It makes lighting the pilot easy. Just hit the igniter button every 10 seconds until the LED starts flashing green. You still have the usual change to pilot position on the dial and hold in the button, but it sure beets using a match or torch to light.the pilot. No panel to remove and put back on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Water Heater After 3 months of purchasing the water heater the burner stopped staying lit. I called Rheem and they sent me a new gas valve to replace the broken one. One week later, the same issues come up and they say something else is broken. I find it completely ridiculous that there's two defects within 3 months. Horrible quality. The second time around when I spoke to customer service they were both rude and not understanding at all. In total I've gone 2 weeks without any hot water. I won't buy a product from Rheem again.

The mgr there would not give me online price of $468 it was $525 in store. I shop there all the time....really? So I came to Loganville store and guess what? It was reduced to $321!! A $200 savings. Easy install. Ours is Gas. Directions very helpful. We have a 2 story 2 1/2 bath and within 30 minutes water was hot. Have it on A setting as well which is the lowest. Very happy with this Rheem Gas Water Heater. We replaced a A.O that looks to have been there since our home was built in 2001. Im sure it will be more efficient as well. Love the LED Feature as well. Now I don't have to guess it will tell me if somethings not right!!! Has a 6yr warranty too

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy RHEEM purchased mine June of 2016 went to my basement two days ago water all over base... Do not buy RHEEM purchased mine June of 2016 went to my basement two days ago water all over basement due to RHEEM water heater. Called RHEEM and got the impression this was not the first time their Water Heaters went bad and leaked out of the bottom. Had to remove it take to Home Depot and exchange which cost me over $100.00 more RHEEM would not make up difference since water heater was over a year old. I was very disappointed in RHEEM and would recommend never buying one. RHEEM does not stand behind their product. I like Home Depot they should probably think twice about carrying RHEEM products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not qualify for Excel Energy Rebate This is not a knock against the product, just wanted to let others know before they buy this unit to not expect the rebate. This unit's Energy Factor is .62 and Excel requires .67 (I'm in Colorado, your local provider may have different standards). Other than this, I'm very pleased with the product. Warmer water at about the same setting as compared to the 10-year old tank it replaced. The status dispay is really nice. I had Home Depot's contractor install it (Delta Mechanical). They came out during a Winter Storm Warning and were not late at all ! Their Install passed local inspection just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Just replaced original 20 yr old Rheem that performed flawlessly until eventual inevitable failure from age fatigue. This new one is much quieter, heats very effectively on medium heat setting, installed without issue, and fired up on initial attempt. It's only been in use for 2 days so I'm unable to comment on longevity but the water quality (odor, pressure, temperature) is much improved.
