what are the dimensions ?

Answers

thu unit itself is just under 6 feet and has a diameter of 18". the plumbing supply line and discharge line both come in to the top of the unit, so you will need an extra foot of headroom to comfortably make the connections. you will also want some room on the sides for the pop off valve and the control / ingniter area.

how tall, how wide

It is 60” tall and 19” in diameter

Today's date: 4/7/2020 Purchase date of this product: 4/2/2017 FAILURE date of this product: 4/6/2020 Tank cracked after 3 years, almost to date. Warranty will NOT replace this since I am not the original owner. I am not debating that, but it does paint a fine image of them not standing behind their product. I am here to warn you that this product does not last. If you want a water heater with a life expectancy of 2-3 years then look no further, this should do.

3 years old and now my half my bedroom and bathroom are waterlogged. Has water pouring out gray valve at bottom right of water heater and finally got it cut off but my granddaughter sleeps right near this propane water heater. It was not turned up too high as only two of us live here in a little 600 s.f. house. Bad purchase, especially for seniors on social security, as now have to try and find a plumber and I thought I could trust a Rheem product and Home Depot.

Was easy to install and water heated back up very quickly. Only negative is not really with this water heater, just that propane water heaters are so much pricier than natural gas and electric models.

This unit replaced a 20yr old one. Self lighting feature and thermostat are great. Have thermostat set below "hot" and have great hot water. Seems very efficient. 40 gal serves our 2 bath house well. Would recommend for propane users.

Very nice water heater! Perfect fit for the space we had! Installation was very simple. The first one was dented, but Home Depot actually delivered another unit from an hour away. The manager at the store was helpful and the delivery driver was VERY professional and had a great attitude.
