I have a 40 gallon Tall 4500 Watts Hot water heater and is hooked on 25Amp circuit Breaker. Is this as per the code and sufficient for the heater to work effeciently?
Asked by: Amin
A water heater of this type is required to be considered a continuous load meaning that the branch circuit needs to be calculated at 125% of the heater's rated ampacity. 4500/240 = 18.75 amps, will work on a 20 amp OCPD but, 18.75*125% = 23.4 amps, requires a 25 or 30 amp circuit.

Does this water heater need gas
Asked by: Leon
the 4500/4500 watt means it runs on electric.iam sure you could get one that will use gas if that is what you need.but it will not have electric elements. hope this helps.

Performance 50 Gal. Tall 6 Year 4500/4500-Watt Elements Electric Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1607.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems that shouldn't be problems Tried to replace the anode and was unable to. The 40 gallon electric water heater is less than 2 years old. I popped the grummet on top. Then using needle nose pliers I picked out the foam, working my way down to the head bolt of the anode. On top of the bolt was a green wire which I had to shove out of the way. Finally, I had access to the head bolt of the anode. I was puzzled when I looked at the bolt because there isn't much to grab onto with a socket. I put my 231 Ingersoll rand impact wrench with a deep impact socket on it and hammered on the bolt head. The bolt did not budge. I next put the socket back on but hooked up torque wrench with a 3 foot pipe and the bolt did not move. I wound up stripping the head of the bolt that holds the anode rod. Next up, I bought an 1/2 inch easy out. I drilled a 11/32 hole in the bolt. I got my hammer drill hooked up to the end of the easy out and hammered on it for a while. The bolt did not move. I put my torque wrench on the easy out with a pipe extension and tried to break free the bolt but it wouldn't move. When I drilled the bolt head, I drilled through the bolt so now the heater will not hold any pressure. Basically, I have a useless water heater that's less than 2 years old. The anode is designed to be a sacrificial part of the heater. It should be replaced once the anode is used up or if the home owner wants a different anode in there. If a impact wrench with nearly 600 ft pounds of torque cannot get it out then what will?!?! I cannot recommend this product. Manufacturers date: 08MAY2017 Model number: XE40M06ST45U1 I also have the serial number and my product is registered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Rheem 50 gallon tall water heater had all the features that one should find in a replacement ... The Rheem 50 gallon tall water heater had all the features that one should find in a replacement water heater, and had all the features that it claimed to have in its specification. It is also built with a high degree of workmanship. These results earn it a four star rating. I reserve five stars for products that deliver more than I expected. However, in an electric water heater I can't imagine getting more than I expected, so four stars is likely to be a top rating. It installed without a serious hitch. The only complaint is that the inlet and outlet fittings had to be tightened more that the recommended amount to seal them at the water heater inlet and outlet. This may have something to do with the plastic parts inside those fittings. On the supply side, where I have copper fittings sweated to the pipes, the fittings sealed with the recommended hand-tight-plus-1/4 turn. Water heat recovery seems as expected, although I haven't timed it.

We did the math and determined that 50 Gallons would be adequate. After Home Depot put us in contact with a contractor we were told it would take 5 days before we could get an estimate - 3 days at best. That was not an amount of time that we wanted to be without hot water, so we decided to do the install ourselves. The unit fit well inside of a Chevy Tahoe. I rented a utility dolly to remove the old unit, then installed the new. This unit was dead easy to install. We used a 24 inch plastic water pan and the Sharkbite 3/4 connectors which easily reduced the installation time. The tank filled in 5 minutes and the water was a hot in 15 minutes. It took about 50 minutes to remove the old unit and about 50 minutes to install the new. Plus 20 minutes to fill the tank and heat the water.

The connections were in same location as our previous Rheem so it was easy to install. Filled with water and the water got hot within almost 30 minutes. Don't know if entire tank of water was hot but it was hot and usable to wash the dishes stacked up! Price was very reasonable for the size of the water heater.

I've set the temps up to max and it will work for a quick shower but the temperature rapidly falls to a lukewarm 110º. This heater is used in a shop; a bit of washing lunch dishes, rinsing glue bottles and the like, and of course showers. I cannot run reasonable back to back showers and for one person, well they better make it fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jack of all Trades master of none. I almost didn’t purchase this water heater based on the negative reviews.After shopping around,asking questions i came to the conclusion that the majority of negative reviews were do to improper installation.”People,” when you install this water heater read the directions.....you have to turn the water back on and allow the water heater to fill up with water completely before switching the electric breaker back on.To make sure the water heater is full of water with “no air pockets,” in the tank or the lines.open your hot water at your sinks,showers and tubs.you will notice a lot of air purging out.allow it to purge the air out until you get a steady stream of water.After all of that,the last step! is to turn the electric breaker back on. No matter if your a contractor or a diy home owner we all can learn something new. Hope This Helps.
