Questions & Answers

Can you vent this tank with pvc pipe?

Asked by: Andrew
Well it's physically possible but you might be creating a red flag if it was to be inspected b y your local authority and the difference in cost from brass might save your $10 or $!5 but brass looks great doesn't warp, degrade except natural aging causing gradual darkening noticeable after a few years but just be careful to wipe off the pipe as fingers etc. make it tarnish unevenly. But of course PVC is safe and possibly legal if you are willing to get yourself a permit if you are the owner of the house. If your not the owner put in what you want.

No the blanket is only for the old model water heaters. The new ones don’t require a blanket.

Performance 40 Gal. Tall 6 Year 38,000 BTU Ultra Low NOx (ULN) Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 389.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Know that when you pay more for the "high performance heaters" you are basically buying oone that... Know that when you pay more for the "high performance heaters" you are basically buying oone that is expected to last longer, such as in a 9 or 12 year vs this this is at 6 years. You're basically paying for an extra anode rod. Minerals in the water attack metal, and manufacturers put in anode rods so the minerals attack the anode rod first. After the anode rod is eaten up it attacks the tank, causing it to leak. Tanks with longer warranties usually have dual anode rods. Commercial water heaters have 3-4 anode rods, typically with an option to add a 5th one in the clean out(residential water heaters don't have a clean out). Yes, you can get this basic model with one anode rod but know that is it is extremely hard to change out. The anode rod itself is only $10-20 but you need a commercial grade impact driver, not your typical one for screwing in deck screws. The house I installed this Rheem in said they used to have to turn the temperature on the highest setting to get hot water. With the new tank, they only had to turn it to "A" and it's just as hot. They were probably heating up a few inches of calcium deposit. Attached are pictures of an anode rod I've been able to get out along with the amount of calcium I've removed from a 100 gallon, 100,000 BTU commercial water heater; over 30 lbs of it after 8 years!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish Home Depot would carry a more reliable brand,... I wish Home Depot would carry a more reliable brand, I've purchased more than 10 of these and we've had repeated problems with the "Gas Control Thermostat". I've had to call Rheem at least 5 times for the various heaters I purchased and it's always the same! Except once where it was a problem with "delayed ignition". The pilot flame was too far from the burners so when the gas finally ignites a big boom is heard, I believe it was blowing out the pilot light too! Took a long time to figure out what the problem was, thankfully it was under warranty. Service from Rheem is good, but we hate to have to be using it all the time, the Gas control was delivered and installed but we had to pay for labor! One year labor and I believe 5 or 10 years parts.

This way you can clean venting easier. Water heaters use more safe guards so more things to break. Low NOx system, higher cost to replace burner should it premature failure. Time will tell, last whirlpool heater lasted 6 yrs. and customer service for heater when first burner failed was terrible. Extended warranty store sells is a waste because it doesn't guaranty same day resolution.

None of the fitting's from my old water heater lined up (Bradford was 15yr's old) or matched and cost me close to $100 ,having said that, it was an easy set up and lived up to my expectation's.Can't give it a 5 star rating because it is only a couple of weeks old that is to say that if it went bad tomorrow i would say @#!*% and give it a zero, if it last's me 10yrs i'll; give it a 5. Same go's for the recommendation.

However, when it was installed it would not stay burning and we had to file a warranty and replace the complete burner assembly. This really should not happen in a good quality controlled assembly. It has been repaired and is now doing a very good job.
