easy to light
This water heater is great so far, my only issue is the temp. , I have it set to "hot" but the water temp. is actually 131' at the faucet. that seems a bit to hot but I can not adjust it any lower. is this a normal temp reading for hot? Do the rest of you guys out there that own one have this issue? I would hate to set this thing on a-b-or c. That I sure would melt my skin off....other than that seems great

    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.

      Works as advertised straight forward install. No issues so far. 4 stars as the first unit purchased and installed had a faulty gas valve that wouldnt open. Tech support said they would send a new valve. Retuned and bought a new one as we were not going to not have hot water for a week while the new part was mailed.

      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.

        Well built. Good insulation. Easy connection. Has monitoring system. Purchased and installed 7/24. Have propane gas and it was the only one carried by Home Depot that came close to fitting due to the exhaust pipe/flue. It was just a bit taller that the one it replaced so had to cut a bit off the flue to make it fit. Ordered online, had it shipped to store where it was picked up.

        It's a water heater all the way . Doing exactly what it's supposed to do. Runs quieter than the old one, runs less often.

        We are very happy with this water heater. It has been installed for about a week. The thermostat is set between the low and A setting with a recirculating pump; we have not even come close to running out of hot water with a family of 4. Thank you Home Depot for the excellent customer service in your Lodi, CA store.

          Huge diffrence in quality
          There is a big difference between this Rheem performance platinum plus then a whirlpool model I currently have. The whirlpool model I had did last about 13 years but it was a battle the whole time. It was one of the safety models that they were selling at the time. This Rheem platinum plus is larger By 10 gallons and it took 15 minutes less to heat from cold water to hot water compared to the whorlpool model i had. It’s also very quiet you don’t even notice it running if it wasn’t heating up the exhaust ports. The install went really easy. End it started very fast didn’t have to bleed The propane lines. The new style control module works very easy I did notice that the very first setting for hot water is all you need. Unless your heating for a lot of bathrooms at the same time you can leave it on the lowest setting. It’s only the first day but I’m very impressed so far if anything comes up I will let you know. By the way this thing is working I am going to assume that our propane bill will go down by about the third.

            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.
