Questions & Answers

Will a power outage stop the water heater from working due to the powered flu damper?

Will a power outage stop the water heater from working due to the powered flu damper?
Asked by: Jason
Yes. The controller for the heater is electrically operated so it won’t work without power. Separately the controller will detect if the damper fails to open and prevent the heater from working.

Does it have leak protection

Asked by: Jay
Hello Jay, Thanks for reaching out! This heater does not feature leak protection. I would recommend looking into our line of Gladiator heaters as they do offer built in leak protection.

If the power goes off will the water heater need to be reset to come back on since it is electric...

If the power goes off will the water heater need to be reset to come back on since it is electrically operated or will the old setting resume once the power is restored? The water heater will be in the attic so it isn't very accessible.
Asked by: Debbie
The old settings will be preserved. I purchased the Wi-Fi adapter so settings can be changes remotely through the Rheem app, including remotely turning on vacation mode ( keeps heater at 50 degrees ) or changing heater temperature.
