Can that ugly "STOP DO NOT RETURN TO STORE" label be removed easily? Or is this yet another product that insists on sticker-tagging the crap out the product? Thanks.
Asked by: RealityCheck
Yes, I peeled mine off right after the plumber installed it. It came off easily. Yeah, they do have a lot of stickers on them.

Rheem Performance Platinum 50 Gal. Tall 12 Year 38,000 BTU Ultra Low NOx (ULN) Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bottom line up front: Avoid Rheem water heaters. No better than GE. Today's water heaters are too... Bottom line up front: Avoid Rheem water heaters. No better than GE. Today's water heaters are too complicated. I bought this water heater in JAN '19. Within a week of installation I noticed the gas valve was making a buzzing noise. Called for service and the gas valve was replaced under warranty. Now it's MAY '19 and my wife goes to take a shower and there's no hot water. I check the WH and the status light is flashing red, 9x between pauses. That points to a faulty chamber sensor. I call Rheem on a SAT and they say the part will be shipped in 2 business days. On MON, 2 days later, I get an email that says part is out of stock and for me to call Rheem. It took Rheem 2 days to figure out the part is OOS? Meanwhile, WH has been 100% shut down with gas line off too. I try to restart WH and it restarts with blue status light. I tell Rheem to ship replacement chamber sensor asap once in stock. Rheem offers to replace with new water heater if it happens again and part is still out of stock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad control valve....s.......... Great water heater when it works. Have had ours 1.5 years, a month ago our control valve went out and since its covered under warranty they took almost a week to fet it repaired and wanting us to find someone because they were too busy. They finally fixed it after a couple choice phone calls. Now today its blinking 7 again, control valve. Calling in the morning, might start looking for a new water heater, so far not impressed with the “top of the line” water heater.

I suppose I would recommend this product but it's too early to tell if it's performance merits a favorable review. The water heater experienced two serious performance flaws. Frist, an over-heat sensor device was defective. Rheem was called and they sent a replacement device within 24 hours. I installed the device and it worked. The result was five consecutive care-free days of water heater operation, followed by a second failure; the pilot would not stay on and no display on the fancy electronic control device indicated a particular trouble report. Rheem was called and a technician was dispatched, within 24 hours. The technician determined, in consultation with Rheem, that the pilot assembly had to be replaced because of a suspected obstruction in the pilot supply line. The new assembly arrived and it was suggested that I install it. I declined the opportunity to fix my own defective water heater a second time. A technician responded and replaced the unit. It's noteworthy that the technician was unfamiliar with this particular unit. He perceived since it's Ultra-Low NOx that only Californians have to be burdened with this unit and we Nevadans are free from having to use this technology. My desire was to purchase and install a device with the less impact to my community and environment so I was willing to spend more. Since then we have had nominal performance. Overall I'm troubled that having spent $800 + on a device that replaced a standard gas water heater that provided 24 years of continuous trouble free service I would have encountered these defects. If 20 years from now my only compliant is two failures and enduring only 6 days without hot water I'll be a satisfied customer.
