Rheem Plastic Drain Valve Failure
The closed plastic drain valve at the bottom failed and water flowed for some time causing damage through the night to our two guest bedrooms. Nearly $9,000 insurance claim. We paid $1,500 deductible. Rheem sent us a brass replacement valve next day so we could get the water heater working again. At least buy a brass valve with your purchase.

      It worked for a little over a year.
      Purchased and installed in late 2020, and 15 months later it has to be replaced. it's leaking water from the bottom of the tank.

        Second time around
        When we built our home in 2005 they installed the basic Rheem 50 gal water heaters with a 6 year warranty. For some reason both failed in 2-3 years but were replaced under warranty. The replacements lasted with one failing at 10 years and the other this year. Went with a little bit of an upgrade with this purchase and hope to get the same or better life.

        Exceeds!
        Just purchased the 29-gallon Rheem gas water heater a few days ago, the installation was quick and uneventful. Powering up the unit was also a breeze. This 29-gallon is a go!
