          Solved a problem, heats water, a little loud.
          PROS: It heats water. Flexible installation. Rebate from local gas company. CONS: It costs about 40-60% more. No electricity = no hot water. Noise...the blower makes a rumble turbulence noise through PVC (isolate that with sound deadening wraps...car audio adhesive wraps work wonders)

              Easy installation. Plenty of hot water for a family of 4. Switched from 40 gal electric to 40 gal natural gas - energy cost rating is $400/year lower than the electric water heater I took out.

              Rheem Warranty Program Can’t be Trusted
              No issues with the water heater for 5.5 years, then the tank failed (leak), called the Rheem Customer Service line, they deemed the tank unrepairable. Then proceeded to claim the tank was outside of warranty period, even though sufficient documentation was provided to them showing the purchase and install date were well within the warranty period. I would not recommend a Rheem hot water tank.

              Mikey,

              We are sorry to hear about your experience with your water heater. We understand that it is frustrating when a product doesn’t perform as expected, especially when it’s something as essential as a water heater.

              Rheem typically provides a warranty covering manufacturing flaws or faults that cause leaks or tank breaks in the water heater’s tank. The general warranty coverage is six years on parts, one year on labor, and up to 15 years on a heat exchanger. However, it’s important to note that warranty terms can vary depending on the specific model and purchase location.

              If you believe your product is still within the warranty period and you have the necessary documentation, it is beneficial to contact our Warranty Support team with this issue.

              Our warranty support team will gladly help to thoroughly explain warranty information to aid in understanding the warranty terms and conditions, including the process for filing a claim, to avoid potential issues. Please call 866-279-4566 between the hours of 7 A.M. and 7 P.M. CST.

              We hope this information is helpful and that your issue gets resolved soon.
