I now have 2 of these in my house. As a DIY guy I liked the 12 year warranty and the smart home connection. I can lower the temp during the night and raise it in the am to be ready for showers. I haven’t taken data, but the ability to reduce the temp has to save energy.

what you should know first.
The flame vapor sensors are shipped out bad. I found out on Youtube that this is comon problem that obviously Reheem choses not to adress. Mine brand new never ran only test 8kohmes. I cant tell you how jacked up this is. PS don’t add the EcoNet I have leak probe elevated and has never touched any moisture but it always reports lead. Second iPhone app is worthless, it lets you set temp remotely but didn’t work. It says a temp so increases it by over ten degrees then wait the water heater doesn’t respond. Only way to get temp you want it unplug the EcoNet unit completely and uses dial. Glad I wasted extra money on this crap. Shame on HomeDepot not making their main product provider live up to the quality they promote

    Do not buy this Rheem. I installed on July 1st. The unit is now leaking water into the pan. Every time the burner starts up you can hear a drip and sizzle. So much for 12 year tank. I will update if Home Depot or Rheem remedy this issue.

    Hi,

    After reviewing your customer service request it looks like we advised to have the water pressure checked. I will have one of our analysts reach out to you to follow-up.

      Just had this product installed less a week and very impressed with the performance and SMART features. My Kenmore corroded from the bottom and the replacement was on backorder. Sears allowed me to purchase another product and I chose the Rheem Platinum. I liked the gas saving feature of heating as needed and pilot shutoff. The other feature to protect the home is the water leak sensor which shuts the unit down until the issue is resolved. It also supports wifi for remote monitoring and leak alert. I'm very pleased with the hot water performance...it's hot and I've had to drop the setting down to the next lowest temperature which is hot but not scalding. So far I couldn't have made a better decision with this product. ⁰

      I purchased this water heater to replace my old water heater that was 12 years old and half its life was used with well water. I also was concerned it was past its time and could start leaking and had no pan under it. The new unit was easy to install, gas line port was the same height as the old one. This unit has a 12 year Rheem warranty and qualified for the 100.00 dollar energy rebate from the gas company making the purchase even better.

        Don't understand all the negative reviews. Replaced a 2006 Reliance gas WT (completely full of sediment and only 14mins of blazing hot water before 100% cold water came out) with the Rheem. My brother and I picked up @ HD on sunday morning. 1.5 hours later we had the old WT completely removed and the Rheem set in place. Also added an expansion tank on the cold water side (also purchased at HD. Used sharkbite ball valve to replace the leaking gate valve (only lived in our new house for 10 months before the Reliance crapped out). Speaking of gate valves, I've been replacing all the gate valves in my plumping system with shark bite ball valves. I even flushed the tank (Reliance) within the first 4 months of living there and was shocked with all the sediment that came out, clogged up our drain hose multiple times (my guess the anode rod had been eaten up for the last few years). Back to the install. Used SS braided flex lines to connect the hot and cold water connections, flex lines make it very easy since you don't have to perfectly match the soldered lines. We upgraded from a 40gal to a 50gal and had to set the new WH back about 6in further into utility room. The flex lines made this very easy. Also picked up and installed the Rheem WIFI module at the same time. I tested the leak detector and it worked as it should. All and all the install was very easy, why pay a plumber to install when you can save yourself almost $1k off the total price. I highly recommend the Rheem Platinum Series water heater. Love the electronic flu dampener!

          I picked out this water heater to replace a Kenmore unit that had developed a small leak. It was in stock at my local Home Depot allowing me to get it ordered online, picked up and installed myself in only a couple hours. The electronic valve and control is nice for energy efficiency, even if the price increase over the non-energy star rated version won't be recuperated for quite a few years. I also added on the Econet sensor allowing me to further save some energy and monitor for future leaks. A hopefully unnecessary expense, but one that gives peace of mind. I installed this unit with a braided flex hose, brass valve and SharkBite fittings, so no soldering was needed and it has been completely leak free for the last month.

          I am very disappointed. we live in Florida and often lose our power. the one good thing we had was our hot water remaining on because it worked on gas. this water heater does not let a gas hot water work without electric. there should be a way to over ride the system if the power is turned off. who cares that it is efficient if it does not work.
