Does this unit require a 24 dc volt gas thermocouple that needs a transformer from 110 volt source?

Asked by: Dl
NO! This unit does not require any external electric power source. So when our power goes off we still have hot water, day after day.

How long (also how big relative to length) does vent have to be? I have it installed with a 3" PVC vent, the PVC was mushy but still remained it shapes after cool down. Is this normal?
Asked by: APFotoUS
This is NOT a condensing hot water heater. It requires 'B' type vent made of metal at least the size of the vent stack on top of the water heater. It must be run at an angle uphill until you can go straight up and out of the roof through a roof jack designed to work with the type of 'B'vent pipe you use. You must also have at least 1" clearance all around the 'B'vent to any combustibles. PVC pipe cannot be used ever on this type of hot water heater. Be sure to check local building codes as they may be stricter.

Are thre built in legs on this unit?

Can this unit be installed directly onto my concrete floor or should I elevate it with some blocks? Would a drain pan fit underneath as well?

Performance 98 Gal. Tall 6 Year 76,000 BTU Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2578.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I HAD a home warranty up until my old hot water heater failed. The warranty company agreed to pay... I HAD a home warranty up until my old hot water heater failed. The warranty company agreed to pay for the unit, but to have it installed was going to cost just over $1000. I thought that was a bit excessive. When I asked why, I was told the contractor would need to rework the water, gas lines and flue to accommodate the new unit. Since this unit was only 2 inches taller, I requested a second opinion to which I was told no due to the warranty company already assigning it to this contractor. I was told it was this contractor or no one. I went with no one. I installed this unit in under 2 hours - that includes the 45 minutes to drain the old unit. I used Shark bite connectors. I put a new ball value in on the cold water side and use 2 braided water supply lines with Shark bite on the copper end. Wow - I had heard great things about the Shark bite and it is true - made the job very easy. Once in place, with all connections made and tested, the unit fired up in 30 seconds, hot water flowing within the hour. Even though doing it myself prevents me from getting a payout from the home warranty company - you MUST have a contractor do the work in order to get them to pay - installing it myself cost me around $700 and a couple hours of time - so no payout, but $300 in the bank. I know my time is worth something, but I must say I enjoy doing these kind of jobs around the house. The unit and the supplies made it a quick and easy task. Needless to say, I have cancelled my home warranty. It seems every time I need them, the cost of the install is so much higher than a person would expect. Overall I am very pleased and would recommend this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy if you plan to install in attic in Texas I bought one in April at Home Depot. Pilot went out and would not relight in June, service company replaced electronic control. Since then it has failed 4 times. Able to relight after many tries. Get 7 blink error message about electronic gas control valve then it finally switches to normal 1 light. After going out the second time this week, I call plumber, they got it relit with same error message but called Rheem. Rheem says attic is too hot but won't say what too hot is. It is very hot up there on the last day of July in Houston, Tx. will be well over 100F. Plumber says only solution is to deal with it or get an attic ventilation system installed...BY THE WAY, WE WILL GIVE YOU A QUOTE FOR FREE!. Can I buy a different unit from you....no, Home Depot will find out and we will lose the install business. Final words were that when it cools off, everything should be fine! What a piece of junk. Old water heater with mechanical controls and manual light lasted at least 15 years without a single problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If it wasn't for the fact the unit had to... If it wasn't for the fact the unit had to be raised to a 18" high platform, I could have installed this myself. And I'm a 66 year old woman. I used my own plumber to install and it took him hardly any time to get it up and running for me. The unit itself works well, easy to operate and essentially a no brainer once it's installed. Also, unless you have a big family or find you and your spouse showing at the same time in the morning, I think a smaller tank works best and is most efficient energy wise. The smaller tank is perfect for us 2 retirees. The only reason I am giving the unit 4 stars and not 5 is because the tanks jacket covering was dented in 2 places and was noticed the day of installation. The carton it was in was not crushed in any way, so the damage most likely occurred at the factory and not the fault of Home Depot or the carrier. But it is only cosmetic and does not affect the heater's operation.

Had it installed turn out it was a bad unit right from the box had to pay extra to have it removed and returned to HD for an exchange unit. Fast forward to Thanksgiving eve , the exchanged unit died at the middle of the night with house filled with guest. With no answer at the call center I had to make the decision to call the only plumber that was able to come out after troubleshooting for hours. we decided to just instal a new one wi. called the call center only to be advice my only option was to leave the old unit installed and call during business hours but since i removed it there is nothing they can do and once they figure out what was wrong they would send the part 3 to 4 days . I should be with out hot water for 4 days. Do not buy with unless you get the HD warranty . Rheem warranty is hog wash . HD need to bring back Hot point atleast I got 8 years out of it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Service and water heater We woke up to no hot water and a leaking water heater. We were thrilled to see home depot did service and installation as gas isn't something we like to play with. I called the service number and was immediately connected to MCS in Albuquerque. Within an hour, we had an amazing technician at our door to help. He answered all our questions, made recommendations, and sent us to home depot to purchase a tank. I even got to upgrade to a 50 gallon, which I've been wanting for 12 years. Cost of water heater with extended warranty was $666 (ugh), cost of service was $925. Same day, amazing service, and a great new water heater, which is now up to code and with extra overflow and a pan underneath so if this happens again we have time to react. I was able to use my HD credit card for all of it, taking some stress from this unexpected expense. Thank you Home Depot and MCS!!!!!

After my bradford white water heater died after 17 years of faithful service, I decided on the Rheem Gas Water heater. There was alot of neg. reveiws on this one, but decided to take the plunge. The people at Home Depot were very helpful,and helped me load it up. Installing the heater was very easy a little soldering,lighting it was a snap just follow the directions carefully, had hot water with in about hour and half. I would recommend that you turn temperature setting to just hot at first ,putting it on A, or B, was just too hot for us so the water is plenty warm for us.Also when filling water heater for the first time ,your water may be somewhat discolored when turning on at faucet for the first time this is going to be normal as this is caused from the air in the pipes and the water being purged through the system again this does clear up after you run all faucets in home,it might take a bit. its not the heater it self, This heater meets my expectations, glad I bought it. Thanks Home Depot

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE READ! Surprise! Home Depot is the only company that carries this model of Rheem water heat... PLEASE READ! Surprise! Home Depot is the only company that carries this model of Rheem water heater. 1. If your thermocouple fails (mine did), you can't use a $10 part that all other similar Rheem water heaters list to fix. 2. Home Depot does not stock the replacement part you need, which is a Pilot Assembly (Houston has 70+ stores, not one in stock). 3. Part is expensive ($50) and takes four days to ship. Install not covered under warranty. I buy EVERYTHING from Home Depot, but from now on, all my water heaters will come from a local plumbing supply company. My plumber just shook his head, said it was unbelievable a billion dollar company would sell the public a one of a kind product and not stock the parts to make repairs. I agree. Save yourself money and a week of cold showers. Don't buy this item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Product I have ever bought. Do yourself a favor and never buy this. Please see my picture... Worst Product I have ever bought. Do yourself a favor and never buy this. Please see my pictures. I wasted so much money and now I have to pay someone to replace this faulty unit. They claimed I had a grace period but my warranty was up by 5 days. I will never shop at home depot or buy Rheem for the rest of my life. I have water dripping down on my floor. Only reason it took me so long to call them is I was busy over memorial day weekend. This is the worst experience I have ever had.
