Answers

No battery needed, it’s manually activated. So 1 push gives the spark. If the part goes bad Home Depot stocks it. My guess is the igniter probably has a few hundred / thousand pushes before it quits working.

There is no need to wrap this unit with a blanket. Mine is in the basement and have had no issues with it providing hot water for multiple showers, dishwasher, and laundry. Even in the winter months.

does the vent have to go straight up or can it turn and go out a side wall

Well built. Good insulation. Easy connection. Has monitoring system. Purchased and installed 7/24. Have propane gas and it was the only one carried by Home Depot that came close to fitting due to the exhaust pipe/flue. It was just a bit taller that the one it replaced so had to cut a bit off the flue to make it fit. Ordered online, had it shipped to store where it was picked up.

Huge diffrence in quality
There is a big difference between this Rheem performance platinum plus then a whirlpool model I currently have. The whirlpool model I had did last about 13 years but it was a battle the whole time. It was one of the safety models that they were selling at the time. This Rheem platinum plus is larger By 10 gallons and it took 15 minutes less to heat from cold water to hot water compared to the whorlpool model i had. It’s also very quiet you don’t even notice it running if it wasn’t heating up the exhaust ports. The install went really easy. End it started very fast didn’t have to bleed The propane lines. The new style control module works very easy I did notice that the very first setting for hot water is all you need. Unless your heating for a lot of bathrooms at the same time you can leave it on the lowest setting. It’s only the first day but I’m very impressed so far if anything comes up I will let you know. By the way this thing is working I am going to assume that our propane bill will go down by about the third.

Well built and ease of operation
I purchased this a few months ago , and was very easy to stall.

Plenty of hot water
Needed replacements after only seven years. Satisfied with my new Rheem hot water heaters
by Truffs
Great product !
This is the Rheem performance platinum. You may need help getting it to your basement if that's where it's going because of the weight once they're hooking up is not hard at all I would recommend buying new fittings and inlet and outlet waterlines. I like to do it right the first time

Propane fired water heater
Special order propane unit took several weeks to deliver to the store. The store and delivery truck tracking system were not accurate regarding delivery. The product was installed by a professional, and went smoothly. So far - a month - the product has delivered hot water as promised.
