This heater has connections on top for hot and cold water hoses. Do I need dielectric connections?

This heater has connections on top for hot and cold water hoses. Do I need dielectric connections?
Asked by: Jack
Rheem, there were no dialectric connectors that came with mine. I just installed it yesterday, and had to purchase dialectric connectors separately.

Do you have to purchase the Wifi attachment in order for the water heater to operate and adjust the control setttingsor can one still do this manually

Wanting for the 12 year warranty and efficiency, not to have to adjust through iffy Wifi connection at times.
Asked by: RedRyder
You don't need to purchase the WiFi attachment to operate this water heater or to adjust the operation (on or off) or the water temperature. I don't have the WiFi attachment, and my Rheem Platinum Performance 38 gallon water heater works just fine to automatically heat water for my home.

Do I need to plug this natural gas water heater to an electric plug?

Where The Performance Platinum 38 Gal.is the perfect size for our small closet, but does not have a electric plug. I know we do not need the Wi Fi to operate the water heater. I am replacing my 30 yr. gas water heater. Thank you
Asked by: pat
Yes, for the electronic control and damper.

Performance Platinum 40 Gal. Tall 12 Year 40,000 BTU ENERGY STAR Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 493.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient and Sleek I have had the unit installed for about 2 weeks now. i did the install myself and all connections were straight forward. The wifi add on was a very nice touch as I feel this will just allow better adjustment of temperature if ever needed. I do look forward to automating the vacation schedule...maybe using it a few hours every night and link it to overall home presence to save even more energy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, Great features, easy install I compared this model against several other brands and models and this Rheem hot water heater was the best of price and features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Heater! After researching available water heaters I decided on this one for the following reasons: 1) It feeds air from above floor level, which doesn't require frequent cleaning by either me or the plumber because of clogged floor-level vents; 2) it is approved by PG&E because of superior efficiency; 3) a PG&E refund allowed a more expensive model, which didn't cost more after figuring in the rebate. All of these points have worked out to be as hoped. This heater allows my husband to take longer showers (not really cost-effective {which I discourage} but it makes him happy, and our gas bills haven't reflected these L-O-N-G showers because of the efficiency of the unit. It's been a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am surprised I bought this one over the recommendations of the sales person at Home Depot. I do not blame him, he was trying to recommend a cheaper model. But I made wanted this one. I am impressed with the way it went in so easily, and how it works. It is an awesome heater.

Have had this heater one and a half years, the inflammable sensor is constantly coming on which turns off the heater. This happens when I wash clothes or when there is no activity in laundry room. It is installed in my laundry room with washer and dryer NO inflammable material in my room!!! This happens four to six times a week. You have to check the beautiful blinking light before you wash dishes or clothes and before taking a shower. If you called a repairman every time it would cost thousands of dollars a year. You must unplug unit from wall, turn off heater and turn temp gage to zero. Then plug unit back into wall turn on unit and turn temp gage from zero to B quickly at least six or seven times. If this doesn't work repeat until it does
