    Q:Is the construction of the water heater different for different warranties?
    by|May 12, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Wayne and thank you for your question. The build quality is the same across all levels of warranty. A product's warranty period can be established based on several factors, including: The industry standard for the product. What the competition is offering. The period of time during which some percentage of the products will still be functioning correctly.

        Q:For the warranty coverage does the consumer need to install new anodes whether it be the 6,9 or 12 year model during the warranty period? Do the 3 models all use the same anode? Thank you.

          Water heater did the trick
          my old water heater failed right after the warranty ran up and obviously I needed to replace it immediately. There were lots of options but I settled on this one as it was a direct swap replacement making it easier on me since I am not a plumber. Took a couple hours, otherwise not too difficult to do on your own. homeowner approved!

            22 month and it's rusted through the bottom welds
            This water heater was installed in November 2021 and it has already failed after just 22 months. It's rusted at all seams at the bottom and is leaking. I have never heard of a water heater rusting through so fast. Sadly, I paid a plumber to install it and now will pay another plumber to remove it, return it to Home Depot and install another water heater. This was a costly bad mistake with Rheem.

              A HISTORY OF RELIABILITY AND EASE OF MAINTANANCE
              The last Rheem water heater I had was over 12 years old before it started leaking because of something I did. So now it was time to replace it and I went out and bought another Rheem water heater. What I liked about this one was how easy it was to install, and hook up, and I am 76 years old. But what I really liked about this model was the ease of firing up the pilot light by simply keeping the pilot light button depressed while pushing the button below it several times until the blue light starts blinking. Once the blue light is blinking it signifies the pilot light is lit and you just turn the knob to where it says Hot, and you're done. No more lighting the pilot light with a match, just push the buttons and wait for the blue light to start blinking, got to love it. Once it was installed and fired up it only took about 30 minutes for the water to be warm enough to go take a shower.

                It leaks
                I install water heaters for a living. I installed a rheem gas water heater from home depot in my home in 2017 and it's leaking all over the basement now. A water heater should last longer than 6 years. Very unhappy.

                  Run from this water heater brand
                  Run from this water heater! The burner was defective when I unboxed. Rheems 1 warranty plumber for San Diego, wouldn’t take the job. I had to find a plumber, then be reimbursed. There are no local parts for a water heaters. The part had to come from the East Coast. They expect you to pay for overnight shipping. Now I’m waiting 6 to 10 weeks to be reimbursed after this process I found an ad on offer up, which shows they have a warehouse of refurbished Rheem water heaters. Bad quality control.

                    Caveat emptor
                    Unit installed in my house in JAN 2021. On APR 7, 2023 the drain valve broke while nobody was around. The garage got flooded, and shoes, boxes, and other personal items damaged by the dozens of gallons that poured out. By the way, I realized this is the first water heater I've seen with a drain valve made of plastic. To add insult to injury, the customer service told me the warranty is only "a new drain valve", nothing else. What else is going to fail before its 6-yr limit?

                      A total piece of garbage
                      I bought a 40 gallon 38000 BTU hot water heater by Rheem from Home Depot less then five years ago. It is already leaking from the base. The warranty is crap as is the Rheem hot water heater! Do not buy Rheem. I made a mistake that you can avoid. A piece of garbage in a box. Zero stars should be the rating.

                        Broke after 4 years and 8 months
                        Bought this on 4/09/18 at local HD in Garden Grove with 5 yrs protection plan. On 12/1522 it stopped working with indicator light blinks RED 7 times -> "Gas Control or Valve Failure" and i filed claim immediately. After over 2 weeks of dealing with HD warranty protection service and still haven't got my water heater fixed. The extended warranty (Asurion) is such a scam, DO NOT BUY IT. And this water heater breaks just after 4 years. Look for some other one. Avoid the troubles.
