Switched out this unit for my old one. Only took just a few minutes (minus the water drain time from the old one). Been on line for a couple days now and not having no problem.

    It was very easy to install. We had hot water for 3 showers within 2 hours of operation. It has only been 3 weeks, but I am very happy with the performance so far. Love that it has Water Management Control Programming and the LED read out and is Wi-Fi compatible. The leak detector is awesome as the last 2 water heaters I had leaked all over the utility room and into the adjacent bedroom. This piece of mind is huge.

    My first do-it-yourself water heater replacement and I couldn't be happier. This was a perfect replacement unit that was so easy to install. Works great, even at the factory temp setting. The LED indicator is a nice bonus feature as well. I highly recommend this heater.

    The tank was easy to move 109 lbs. it was to hot 125 for me so I did adjust to 115. I like the 3 LED lights, it shows the power is on, the lower element is on and the top element is on. Now this tank is 19 in in diameter and 61 in high. No one sells a blanket to fit this tank. Just installed may 2018. I am happy.

    Yes, l would recommend a Rheem performance plus water heater. I have had my Rheem water heater installed for a month, so far no problems. Supplies plenty of hot water on demand. I like the front LED indicators which let me know which heating elements are in use. Thus far it has meet my expectations.

    Built Like A Tank
    The previous one was a 30 gallons one and only lasted 30 years before it needed replacing. I went ahead and upgraded to a 50 gallons with the hopes it will last me another 30 years.

      Perfect replacement!
      Purchased this to replace a 14 year old failing WH. Easy install and hot water within 45 minutes of powering up.
