Electrical Connections
This Rheem Performance 3.5 Kw 120 volt Tankless electric water heater I have a simple question. On the pig tail connected to the unit the wires are labeled Red - Power, Black - Neutral, and Green - Ground. Why is the Black wire labeled Neutral when Black is considered an ungrounded conductor ??

    I have an 750 sqft apt w/ a full bathroom, laundry & kitchen. The Rheem performance 6 tankless water heater is perfect for my apt needs. The installation was easy or straightforward including the plumbing. Instructions were simple. The water heater activates automatically on demand then it deactivated. Great! It saves lots of energy. Water came out hot enough as expected. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Does just what we wanted. We put the under a bathroom sink that is far away from the main water heater. It gives us warm water in seconds rather than having to wait over a minute.

      Once installed, it started working instantly. The digital meter will only turn on once there is water passing through it. Adjusted the flow rate and now getting 120+ F out of this. By the way, I’m only using this for my outdoor washing machine since the townhouse I live in does not have a indoor washing machine/dryer. Highly recommend this product!

            I purchased this and the man we hired installed it. Our issue is it gets hot then cold. Of course he took manual. Is there anyway to set temperature to stay hot? There is only one button to push. Please help
