      Q:Is the piezo system electrical and is it self starting when temperature gets low?
      by|Jul 3, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Arthur and thank you for your question. The part is Part # SP21059 Pilot Assembly Replacement Kit. The Kit includes: gasket, tinnerman clips, torx head screws, and pilot assembly. The units gas control valve is SP20833C Description: Gas Control (Thermostat) - LP. A gas control valve for a water heater system opens and closes in response to signals from the water heater's thermostat. When the thermostat detects a need for hot water, it sends an electrical signal to the gas control valve, which then opens to allow gas to flow to the burner. When the desired temperature is reached, or when the water heater is not in use, the gas control valve closes to stop the flow of gas.

          Hello Janice,


          We are sorry to hear about the condition of your Performance 40 Gal. Tall 6-Year 32,000 BTU Liquid Propane Water Heater upon arrival. It’s unfortunate that it had several dings and dents despite the shipping box appearing undamaged.

          While it’s good to hear that the water heater is installed and working, I understand that the aesthetic aspect is also important. You might want to contact Home Depot’s customer service to report this issue. They may be able to offer a solution or compensation for the damage.

          Remember, your water heater comes with a 6-Year Warranty, providing you with peace of mind.

          Leaked at initial install
          Was hesitant about this one because of the bad reviews, some said it leaked from the pressure release valve. Had no other option so got this one anyway. It leaked from the pressure release valve. Setup was easy otherwise. But then I had to drain it and remove the valve and put Teflon tape and screw it back in. I had to screw it one full turn further than it was on before. After doing this it no longer leaked. Absolutely unacceptable that a brand new water heater leaks. Terrible quality control.

            Today's date: 4/7/2020 Purchase date of this product: 4/2/2017 FAILURE date of this product: 4/6/2020 Tank cracked after 3 years, almost to date. Warranty will NOT replace this since I am not the original owner. I am not debating that, but it does paint a fine image of them not standing behind their product. I am here to warn you that this product does not last. If you want a water heater with a life expectancy of 2-3 years then look no further, this should do.

              3 years old and now my half my bedroom and bathroom are waterlogged. Has water pouring out gray valve at bottom right of water heater and finally got it cut off but my granddaughter sleeps right near this propane water heater. It was not turned up too high as only two of us live here in a little 600 s.f. house. Bad purchase, especially for seniors on social security, as now have to try and find a plumber and I thought I could trust a Rheem product and Home Depot.

                We are very happy with this water heater. It has been installed for about a week. The thermostat is set between the low and A setting with a recirculating pump; we have not even come close to running out of hot water with a family of 4. Thank you Home Depot for the excellent customer service in your Lodi, CA store.

                  Was easy to install and water heated back up very quickly. Only negative is not really with this water heater, just that propane water heaters are so much pricier than natural gas and electric models.
