Questions & Answers

Is this unit an automatic electronic ignition system that does not have continuous pilot on?

Asked by: Bryan
I don’t think mine does, but it’s almost 10 years old now. The “new” ones may very well have auto ignition.

I need to have a unit 1' off the ground and my ceiling is 8' from the ground. If I need to replace the anode down the line, will I have enough room?
Asked by: mtnman
Chances are you will never have to change the anode. But if you do its right on top of tank and you will have room to replace it. The rheem tank you is a.very good one, you should not have any problems.

Performance Plus 40 Gal. Short 9 Year 36,000 BTU Liquid Propane Tank Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1501.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser
Date published: 2019-05-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality products? My last hot water heater lasted for 12 years. I worked for 42 years in the engineering & construction industry and installed the unit myself. I was disappointed to see that the control was Honeywell china. Cheap, cheap. I have personally purchased all kinds of instrumentation for refinery & chemical plants & there are much better. We will see. Since my unit is in our upstairs attic, I had to install a boat trailer crank , with steel cable & pulley above the opening which allowed me to hoist the 135 lb heater straight up in the vertical and into the pan. You should have designed two lifting ears on the sides Or maybe the hot & cold pipe suitable for lifting, however, my sling under the bottom And rope wrappings around the entire tank worked very well. My wife was operating the winch & I was watching from beneath. Oh yea, I designed and welded A structural clip to hold the pulley, worked very well. Left every thing in place for the next time. (68 yr. Old, & retired) should have filmed it!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flammable vapor lockout issues This water heater is pretty efficient and seems to work well except I've had a lot of cold showers due to the flammable vapor sensor lockout. I know this is a safety feature that is meant to protect people, but it seems over-sensitive and Rheem does not publish the reset procedure to homeowners. As a result my contractor replaced the whole unit once, and I have replaced the FV sensor once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slightly better than expected I am not one to write reviews, with all the companies out there that write them for the manufactures. I had to in this case since I have had a flawlessly perfect experience with the Performance Plus water heater. The installation/replacement was as simple as any waster heater and the start up was so much simpler than the old 'stick a long match in the hole and pray' models. I have been using it for about one year now and never had a lack of hot water even with housefulls of guests taking showers/baths. It is quite quite and the only indication I get is from the blinking LED indicting that it is testing the system. Where it has slightly exceeded my expectations is in the cost of operations. My gas bill in the summer months has been lower than what the Energy Star label would indicate it should be. So if you want a water heater that preforms as advertised and quietly does it job this is the unit.,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy! I just recently had to replace my Bradford & White 50 gallon water heater after only 6 years of service for a family of 4. Died exactly one month after it's warranty expired. So, Off to Home Depot to pick up a new one and get it installed quickly. I am handy, not a tradesman to say the least but handy. So, I brought the new unit home, unpacked it and found it to be well built and as far as water heaters go it was attractive. Nice clean lines and easy to read and understand instructions made this a 25 minute install and we were up and running with a full tank of hot water in just over two hours. I have paid licensed plumbers to install water heaters for me before, but honestly if you have "any" skills you will be able to remove the old unit and install a new unit in less than an hour! I went through the registration process with Rheem and again was pleased. This too was a smooth easy process. I hope to never have to follow this review up with my review of Rheem's customer service as I know this unit will work great for years to come. Great Product! Highly recommended!

I brought it home and had my propane supplier install it. It went in very easily and is giving excellent hot water. Almost too hot--had to turn it down a couple of notches! MUCH quieter than the last hot water heater I had been enduring--which made a booming nose every time it turned on. Not a sound from the Rheem! Love the extra long warranty and I also added a Home Depot warranty. Shouldn't have to worry about another heater for a LOOONG time! Thanks Home Depot!
