          This replaced another Rheem tank that was out of warranty (by 3 months). Paid the extra money for the 12 year tank. Also added an expansion tank. The price quoted by Home Depot’s contractor was outrageous $1700. Installed it myself with $60 of parts.

          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.

          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.

          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.

            So far so good only had it for two weeks now. Installation is very easy. I like not have to use a match to light it. My last heater lasted 22 years if this last as long I will be long gone..Got some installation tips from the Plumbing Pro at the Houghton Lake Home Depot which made installation much easier and quicker. Only down side is if you need it right away that will not happen . It took weeks to get mine. ..so order ahead before you need it.

            This review can only cover initial installation and first impressions. As with most durable items, the ultimate proof is how the water heater performs over the next 10 - 15 years. Having said that, I opted for the 12 year warranty because I hate doing plumbing jobs and hope this will hold up for the entire warranty period plus. The previous Rheem has a 6 year warranty and lasted 14 years. The water heater came packaged very well and, most importantly had everything needed to complete the installation without running out to a hardware store.( I reused the flexible water connections and sweat soldered the pressure relief outlet with the existing components I had on hand ). The water heater appears to be solidly built and the controls are clear. The flashing status LED is a nice touch. All and all the install went smoothly and the recovery period is pretty impressive. So far, I am very satisfied.

            It took 3 weeks to arrive after I ordered it. When the heater arrived, I accepted it as the box was undamaged. When I opened the box there was major damage to the heater. They boxed a ruined unit! It took 2 hours at the store to get a replacement ordered, but I have to wait another 3 weeks for it to arrive. Who wants to wait a month and a half to have hot water in their house???

            Pros: Appears to be well built. Easy lighting. Heats very quickly and maintains the set temperature very well. Cons: Took three weeks to arrive at our store for pickup. Fortunately I could keep my old water heater going by relighting the pilot 2 - 3 times a day. Also was received slightly damaged. The outer metal skin near the bottom on the back side was caved in. No indication of product damage on the outside of the carton when I picked it up at the store. Did not appear it would affect actual performance, would not show, and I did not want to wait another three weeks for a replacement. Overall, the heater rates a Five Star so far, (After One Month). Home Depot's performance, (wait time and damage), a Three Star.
