Questions & Answers

Power requirements

I want to make sure this unit does not need any electrical outlet as I am looking for a gas unit only w/o any electrical outlet requirements to operate this unit/ Thanks in advance.
Asked by: Jim
No electric is needed.

Does this unit have a "Pilot" flame / light?

Looking to buy.
Asked by: Bray
Yes it does. Good news is that lighting the pilot is done through a piezoelectric switch whose button is located on the front panel of the regulator valve. So no more fireplace matches and burned fingers trying to light the pilot.

Performance Platinum 40 Gal. Tall 12 Year 40,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 647.

The only problem I saw was they were dented and damaged when opening the box. The box looked totally fine but when opening the heater it had a huge dent on the top like it was dropped. Returned it to Home Depot for another one. Again got it home, box was perfectly fine. Opened it and again the hot water heater was rippled on the top with several dents. Rheem should change their packaging do to the fact this is happening to often. It seems this is happening in the factory do to the fact that the box has no damage. Hopefully Rheem will take this in consideration.

Build quality is very good and much better than I expected. Startup was easy and went exactly as described. Takes a couple of minutes to get the gas flowing and pilot lit. Temperature controls are excellent. Blinking LED indicator is nice feature - great for a quick glance to ensure the system is working properly. Only negative is the drain valve does not have a knob (valve stem has slot for screwdriver only).

Manufacturers packing was perfect for shipment and arrived safely at my Home Depot location. Manufacturing quality was above what I expected as fit and finish were perfect.. Pipe couplings and pressure relief valve were both included so there was little else to buy. Initial operation was flawless and after 3 weeks we're very satisfied with the performance of the water heater.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked within 1 year My Rheem 40G Tall experienced leakage within 12 months of purchase. Initially I thought those water on the basement floor was coming from the relief valve, until I have a plumber who casually took a look and diagnosed that it was a tank leak! The Rheem plumber said it was us who are unlucky to get a Lemon. Statistically, there are about 20 Lemons per 1,000 units in Rheem. The warranty works this way -- Rheem paid us full product price + installation in Home Depot credits, and there is no other compatible choices of water heater except Rheem ! Without any other options, I guess we have dip back into the exact same product for the replacement.

I bought two heaters one the gas ignition is full metal and the other is plastic the metal looks great and the plastic is bothering me. I am sure with in few months or years it is going to give me trouble. I have checked with few technicians they all agree and on this. They also mention most warranty work they do is the replacement of this plastic gas connection switches

It was easy for this old bird to install (with a man to help lift the old one off and new one on the platform), easy to turn on, a bit harder to hook up to the chimney, (the old one was smaller around, but with some creative adjustments I did just fine). Saved myself around $200 to $500 for the install. Works great.
