Performance Plus 40 Gal. Short 9 Year 38,000 BTU High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1589.

I just installed this unit about a week ago, so far is working great the temperature setting is very practical. I had to re do the water lines to the fact that this unit was about 4 inches taller than the old one. Beside that I had no problems; how ever if you are installing it yourself, give it it time for the gas to reach the pilot. That means keeping the temperature knob pushed in to let air out of the gas line. Don't expect that the pilot will light up instantly. It could take several tries.

Had this product for 2 months now...installation was a breeze but woke up this morning to no hot water. The pilot light went out and wont relight. Talked to the 800 number and they have to mail you the part and then a technician will schedule an appointment....SO if you buy this heater and the gas valve fails like mine, and after reading reviews, I see several others figure.... 2-4 days without hot water!!!! I bought a Rheem thinking it was a top quality name with top quality service. Nothing like a cold showers for the next few days to get my day going!!!! Should of spent the extra money on a lochinvar from the local plumbing supply store. At least they would have the part available the same day, i would of just replaced it myself and had hot water in a few hours vs. days

But, once this new Rheem was installed (by son and I) and in operation, it made me so thankful that our old 40 gal. water heater had finally given out after 30 years of service! There was simply no comparison between the performance of the old standard efficiency water heater and our new high efficiency model. Because it is just my wife and I at home anymore, we set the new heater at the second to lowest temperature setting (out of six settings, from "low" to "very hot")—which was more than ample. Unlike the old W/H, we have been able to open the shower hot water faucet to just a partial turn, with the cold water side just enough to achieve a comfortable balance...and we never run low on hot water, even though I tend to take long showers! With the old unit, I had to gradually decrease the cold water side throughout the shower so that the old W/H could keep up. But, even with my longer shower, the new Rheem Performance Plus never runs low on hot water. And, owning to the extra insulation, the appliance maintains the water temperature for notably long periods of time, which makes for a significant savings on the gas bill. Given that there are three Home Depots within a convenient 6-mile range of our home—all of which had this model in stock—we were able to select our local store, which is less than 2 miles away. The order process was easy: after placing the online order (after store hours) the night before, I was able to pick up the unit, ready to go at the Online Orders counter the following morning. Loving the new water heater, and my kudos to Home Depot for their excellent service! CAUTION!! Working with natural gas (including propane) piping can be extremely hazardous! Proper installation of a gas appliance is not just another routine DIY project for the novice, and is not forgiving of error. Even the slightest gas leak, resultant from an improperly tightened gas pipe fitting and proper sealant, will build up in a confined space over time. Left undetected, this gas buildup can be ignited by even the slightest spark. Regardless of who does the installation, you should follow up by checking for leaks in either new or relocated pipe joints. Simply brush a concentrated mixture of dish detergent (or equivalent) and water completely around each joint and ensure that there are no bubbles, which would indicate a gas leak of course. For this reason, unless you have prior plumbing experience—and are 100% comfortable with working with gas piping—I highly recommend that you hire a professional to do the water heater installation for you. Saving a few hundred bucks from not paying a professional is simply not worth the risk of losing life and limb, or even your entire home, to say the least! According to Home Depot’s website, “All Home Depot water heater repair service providers are handpicked, licensed and insured, and have been background checked.” HD also provides same-day service if you call before noon and are within a 30-mile radius. I don’t know what they charge for installation, so you would need to give them a call for that information.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I expected and hoped for. Since the new water heater was just installed I have no performance experience to rate however installation was "routine" with only minor adjustments to gas, vent and water connections in and out. NO problems with fittings or leaks. Price was very reasonable, almost to the point of thinking it may be too inexpensive. Changing out the old tank was transparent and my wife's only concern was needing to adjust the water temperature downward from the same setting on our old unit because it heats more efficiently. If performance matches the ease of installation, it will be a "home run." MPF

Rated 3 out of 5 by from looks good,Rheem quality At first I was disappointed because of the pilot light not lighting issue that Rheem has been experiencing however I have discovered the problem and had it fixed in seconds without the thermopile kit and gasket that is being mailed out to customers to repair their units, I had mine working perfect, blue light blinking and tested my fix with relighting my pilot 10 out of 10 times and it lit first time, every time without getting into the sealed pilot and burner area and the "fix kit" that arrived a couple days after I had my unit working perfect is still in the box, not needed at all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from scary blinking light alarm Only put in one day ago , too soon for a review . After reading the instructions on the blinking light alarm , I find this scary . Will I be checking the counts on the blinking lights forever now ? Although its working good after one day , what do I do and who do I call when I see six blinks and I need to call a specialist under my warranty and what when its over ? Very confusing . I like safety items but this is too much.
