Amazing Hot Water Tank!
I purchased this water tank to replace my 25 year old GWS! I hope I have the same luck! Easy to install, quite, great value, fast heating and tons of hot water! I would highly recommend this unit for purchase! The Home Depot was the best to deal with! Great job!

    Not recommended
    After having our other water heater for 19 years, we finally had to replace it. Purchased this supposedly “professional” Rheem water heater and now 2 years later pilot keeps turning off. Called a plumber for an estimate and it was more than the heater, $1,100. Never buying this brand again. Cheap appliances now a days.

      100 Gallon ULN Gas Water Heater
      Excellent Product. The heat sink nipples included with the water heater does it job. The ease of lighting the pilot with the blinking blue light on the thermostat takes the guesswork out if the pilot is lite. Suggestion is to add 1-1/2" high pavers as base for water heater versus just sitting on the concrete floor.

      Failed after 2 years; Rheem warranty support non-existent
      This Rheem water heater had problems after 2 years of usage. The control panel intermittently shuts off the water heater and will not re-light. Usually occurs during hot summer months when temperature in the garage exceeds 100 degrees F. When if fails, we have to wait a day or two before the pilot will re-light. That means a day or two without hot water. I attempted to contact Rheem for warranty support. When I submitted a request on rheem.com, I received an automated email telling me to call the 800 number. When I call the 800 number, either no one answers or they put you on hold forever. The 6-year warranty is useless. I have a different Rheem model with a 12-year warranty at another house. The vapor sensor on that unit failed after 4 years. Rheem products are totally unreliable, will be shopping for a different brand in the future. HomeDepot, which is usually excellent in supporting products they sell, does not stand behind the warranty either. HomeDepot only gives you a 90-day return period on Rheem water heaters.

        No hot water
        Our old water heater started leaking so we needed a new hot water heater fast and luckily Home Depot was able to get out the next day. The installer sent by Home Depot was great and did a great job. Unfortunately, the unit is not even a week old and the water heater stopped working. The pilot is on then turns off. We turn it on then it shuts off again. Of course my husband comes home dirty from work and now has no hot water for a shower. This is the second defective major home appliance we have purchased that is defective. We are NEVER using home depot again.

          6 months later failed...
          Been waited 10 days for a part to come to "fix" the very stupid gas controller... that our plumber "Friendly Plumbers" in Salt Lake City "ordered" the part that hasn't arrived... I have to light it twice a day till real help arrives... what a joke. If these units are nightmares and nothing but trouble like the installer said, why don't they stock parts for this silly thing? Big company fail...

              Excellent performance for our 3 person home. Even after three showers back to back, still plenty of hot water. Easy temperature control with its convenient panel location.
