I see that HD sells vent kits. the plumber that we are using to install this tank, suggested we buy the vent kit from HD that "fits" this water heater with the power vent function. which vent kit will work with this heater? our install is in our basement.
Asked by: carl
I just made my own. A few pieces of CPVC to send it out the side wall. I believe the horizontal piece must be at least 3 feet long. The specs are in the instructions.

If you have a water heater with power vent - do you need to replace it with same one?

Our water heater is going, apparently making strange noises from the power vent, also has crystals on top of water heater. Do you need to replace it with exact same kind or can we get normal water heater?
Asked by: Chrissy
No, you can get a cheaper one probably 40k btu will do. Just need to get reducer to connect b vent pipe to PVC pipe and you'll be set.

Rheem Performance 50 Gal. Tall 6 Year 42,000 BTU Natural Gas Power Vent Tank Water Heater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 841.

Home Depot followed through with my online order to make everything right and I want to thank them for their diligence to customer service. As far as Rheem they have a great product it was somewhat interchangeable with the product I took out. the gas line hookup was same, hot water outlet same, cold water outlet same and the pop off blow down was in the same place. The only difference was the power vent was a 2" instead of 3" up to 2". No problem just piped 2" form tank to where the 2" exited. I had it installed by local plumbing service. I had water drained out, gas off and removed pop off blowdown line. It only took plumber about 45 min to install by removing old unit cutting hard piped water lines installing new unit with compression lines and redoing the exhaust filling and starting unit which fired first time. Rheem is also excellent with customer service and price so much so that if I need to replace heat pump I will be looking at Rheem. I have two upstairs and a down stairs.

There is a fuel vapor sensor that is wrongly placed at the very bottom about one inch from the ground. Any vapor even water vapor sets off this sensor and shuts down the water heater. Once the sensor has been set off, resetting is only temporary as in a few weeks it will set off again and will need to be replaced. Home Depot does not carry this part and it needs to be ordered from Rheem and they try their very best not to send you one and delay it till you keep calling again and again. A O Smith had relocated this vapor sensor to the side about a foot higher as it sets off due to false positive. Unless Rheem redesigns this water heater like A O Smith did with the fuel vapor sensor much higher and to the side, this is a DO NOT BUY this product

I installed this to replace a 25 year old power vent water heater that was leaking. The new unit was approximately the same size so it fit into the existing space. As expected the water lines did not line up so plan for some plumbing work. The gas line lined up perfectly so that was simple. The PVC flu is very easy to install, but it would be greatly improved with some type of through wall fitting. It's been running for 2 weeks now and it working great. The exhaust blower is much quieter than my old one. Take care that the vent pipe is not vibrating against anything. The one issue found during installation is that the exhaust pipe is very close to the cold water inlet. This problem was not evident until all of the water plumbing was in place and I went to install the flue and the vent pipe interfered with the knob on the water valve. I had to either remove the knob or rework the plumbing to solve the issue. See pictures for more detail. Since the blower is installed after the plumping has been completed this is something that should be noted in the manual.

Life of tank isn't very good.For no good reason Rheem changed the location of the vent which required completely new running of the PVC vent pipe. I did a request for installation from Home Depot and the price was ridiculous. $800 to drain tank, unscrew two water fittings, a gas fitting and vent. Remove tank and then reverse procedure. I declined. It took me 1.5 hours to do the entire job.I will NEVER ask Home Depot to do any type of service work

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failures I recently purchased a rental property. The existing water heater was serviceable, but old. I didn't want to be inconvenienced when the residence moved in by having a problem with the water heater so I had a new unit from home Depot installed. It failed a month after the residents moved in. I asked Rheem to authorize a replacement, but they refused and instead asked me to install replacement parts. After waiting a week for Rheem to send me new parts and spending a day replacing the power vent, I realized the control unit had failed. Rheem wanted to mail me a new control unit, but I again asked for them to authorize the replacement and they agreed. Except their contractor was only available for scheduling between the hours of 8am and noon on weekdays. It took about week to get it replaced. I needed to give my residents a break on their rent for the month. It was very disappointing. Go to Lowe's and get an AO Smith, don't waste your time with the Rheem, poor quality and they don't stand behind their work.
