Is there any advantage with this 38 gallon model vs the 40 gallon model? Maybe the water will get hotter faster, more pressure or more effiecient? I mean why is there a 38 gal and a 40 gal model?
Asked by: JOCO
I had a 50 gallon heater before this one. Have not run out of water. Bills have gone down. I guess advantage would be you have two less gallons of water to heat, other than that I don't know.

Is it ok to install this in the garage? I read the question about the flammable vapor sensor and was wondering it that would be an issue in a garage.
Asked by: Steve
I would recommend against it because of the fvs sensor. This sensor detects pretty much anything around the unit with a strong odor and will go off if there is car exhaust in the garage. Once the fvs sensor is tripped the unit will need to be reset and eventually the sensor with need to be replaced.

For those that bought this unit, does anyone have an issue with the water not being as hot as set on the thermostat? If so, was there an easy fix? Considering buying it but have seen similar comments elsewhere. Thanks!
Asked by: DougB
It seems to be heating allright - when it works..... Had to call Rheem Support - 4 Home Calls before within 2 months of delivery - would stop working - 4 times.....till they fixed it for good now.

Rheem Performance Platinum 50 Gal. Tall 12 Year 40,000 BTU Natural Gas ENERGY STAR Tank Water Heater with WiFi Module Included is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 81.

You're probably thinking the WIFI controls will help you regulate cost like a thermostat. You probably think you can set the heater to operate on a low burn while you're sleeping or and set a time for it to kick the heat up so when you wake, you'll have hot water. Or maybe you want to save gas while you're at work and you can program the thing to power save. You should stop thinking that, because no one at Rheem thought of that. The WIFI isn't worth the extra cost and only causes more issues with the product staying on. The only use for the WIFI is to set the heater temp. and tell it when you're on vacation. It's not like your central heating and air where you can say, "Okay, I"m awake at this time, so kick in. BTW, I'm asleep or at work at this time, so save power." Nope. Because that would have been smart. That would have been progressive. Do yourself a favor and skip the WIFI. The moment you plug it in, your pilot will go out and it's cold shower all the way.

I purchased this unit because the specs said it had an 85 gallon first hour rating. HD services installed it and I then noticed the energy label attached to the unit said it would only had a 72 gallon first hour rating. Talked to HD customer service at the store where I purchased it and they said to talk to Rheem as they only "sold" the unit and weren't responsible for the specifications they published on their web site. I talked to Rheem's customer service reps on 2 different occasions and the 1st rep just sent me an email explaining what first hour rating means and the 2nd rep told me that the ratings were "just estimates" and to contact AHRI who apparently certifies their units if I have any questions. I paid HD home services over $600 to install this unit and now I'm not sure if it will handle my needs or not and I do not want to incur any more additional installation charges than I already have. (City codes where I live requires a plumber to do the installation). Both Rheem and HD need to take responsibility for what they sell and quit passing the buck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased and installed the water heater that did not work. I called Rheem warranty service to ... I purchased and installed the water heater that did not work. I called Rheem warranty service to troubleshoot who recommended having a plumber call them the next day. We did so and learned the damper atop the water heater was not working properly. It took 2 days for the new damper to be received. The plumber had to remove the old one and install the new one. That allowed the water heater to start. We went 4 days with no hot water and Rheem said it will take 4-8 weeks to be reimbursed the $600+ for the plumber to troubleshoot and reinstall the damper. (I'll most likely send them the interest charges if it takes so long for the reimbursement.) Now, it will not heat water properly. When set at the highest temperature setting of 160 degrees, the water temperature sometimes reaches 120, sometimes 130, sometimes not even 100. Never has the temperature reached 160 degrees. I plan to call Rheem again tomorrow. Overall, I'm out money, hot water, time...I won't make the mistake of buying a Rheem product again. And, Home Depot does not assist in issues of this type.

I saw others having problems with the wireless, but I thought the wireless was very easy to setup, and the app is cool. You can use your phone to schedule in advance when you will go on vacation , and the water heater will go into "vacation mode" during that time, and then turn back on at the scheduled time right before you return so you can walk in and have a hot shower. You can also control the temperature from your phone. It will also send you an email, text and/or push alert if there is any problem, e.g. water in the collection pan.
