Replaced 20 year old Lochinvar that came with house..My Cat woke me up to flood...She wasn't happy with water all over floor.. Didnt even brush my teeth or had my coffee I drained old tank ..Cut old water lines out tossed it on a dolly to the garbage..All in my flip flops..Cleaned floors.. tossed wet stuff in washing machine then headed to home Depo..2 hours later family and animal's all happy I was done..New 50 Gallon Rheem Performance pushed out hot water..Took shower and finally brushed my teeth and had my coffee.. So far so good..Im old so hopefully I wont have to do that again.. Next up Rheen 2.5 ton A/C will be installed once hot weather cools off.. Im trusting you Rheem!!! Dont let me down.. Love Home Depo had everything I needed..

    I've only had the unit a few weeks. Also my previous hot water heater was incredibly old and did not perform any. Anything would have been an upgrade but this Rheem is good. Easy installation and performance thus far is wonderful.

    W/H Leaking from Thermostat (Poor Quality Control)
    Water heater leaking from the upper thermostat panel within minutes after installation was complete. Basement/carpet soaked. W/H has sticker " do not return to store. Call Rheem for assistance". Called for assistance 06/15/2020 and I am unable to get expedited service to get this resolved. First time buying this w/h and will not buy again. I do not recommend this product.

      Been running this for about three weeks now, no issues. Performs as you would expect a new unit to perform and was easy to install. I only wished that the pressure relief valve would have been directed more to the front of the unit rather than the rear as this was going into a corner. No big deal, just a little more work with the discharge line. I read that you are not supposed to lay down hot water heaters when transporting, rather they should be in the upright position. An employee at Home Depot assured me that it was ok to lay the boxed unit down in the bed of my truck, carefully of course. I'm happy to say that I got this thing out of my truck, transported by hand truck down my 1940's narrow and steep stairs to the basement, unwrapped and installed with no dents! Cutting along the marked line at the bottom of the box and using that bottom portion of the box as a floor glide helped slide it close to the location.

      faulty connections and extended warranty
      Purchased 3 years ago and noticed rust build up over time coming from the intake and output ¾ nipples. Based on research and videos the issue were caused by manufacturer parts (all purchased from home depot). Additionally, the home depot warranty plan was just as bad, putting the blame on plumbing , not the manufacturer and denying my claim. Long story short I replaced the connections myself. Really upset with all my time wasted with the home depot warranty back & forth and water heater.
