    Purchased this water heater June 2020. Hone Depot one year warranty expired. July 2021 unit stopped worked. I contact Reheem and they mail the replacement part, gas control unit, which is where the pilot button sits. Plumbers charging me the same amount I paid for unit to install new part!!! Do not buy .

      Easy installation, great value, love the 6 year warranty! This is the 2nd 40-gallon Rheem I have purchased: an electric for home in Phoenix and gas for home in Vegas. Both are working great. I have to turn the heat setting almost all the way down because it works so well.

      Water heater was easy for my brother and I to install and start up. Water heater is better than the tankless heater I had previously.

        Life is Good Now!
        ***** Excellent Water Heater if you want plenty of hot water!!! ***** I recommend this water heater for anyone with a household of 5+. This is also great if you have in-laws or kids that come and visit. The brass drain valve with the half turn open/close is much better than those plastic valves. Since it takes a screw driver to open/close, you don't have to worry about a small child getting burned with hot water. As with all natural gas 75 gallon hot water heaters, it requires 4" diameter venting instead of the standard 3". The vent hood supplied does a great job of funneling all of the exhaust out. The 76,000 BTU burner provides great recovery time when hot water has been used. The tank is also well insulated. This Rheem tank is thicker than the 75 gallon water heater I replaced. It does come 1" female/female inlet/outlet fittings. My old water heater had 3/4" fittings. Therefore if your pipes are 3/4 copper like mine you will need a couple female 1" to 3/4" sweated fittings. You will also need a larger thermal expansion tank. I had a 4.5 gallon thermal expansion tank added. This Rheem water heater comes with a little pilot light starter. This is the first water heater I have had with one. It comes in handy because you don't have to light the pilot light with a lighter. I like that it has a 3 year labor and 12 year parts warranty. The ideal thing about a 75 gallon water heater with quick recovery time is that you only need one instead of having two 40 or 50 gallon water heaters. With 2 you have to have 2 water inlets, 2 water outlets, 2 gas inlets, 2 exhaust vents. This a makes for a costly plumbing charge. You also have 2 pilot lights running instead of one. Although the 75 gallon water heater is little costly, you only need one water heater. The only down side to the Rheem 75 gallon water heater is it does NOT appear to be a stocked or warehoused item. When I ordered mine it took a month to arrive. When it arrived in early April 2021, I saw it was just manufactured in late March 2021. This makes me wonder how fast a replacement could be had if one was needed. I preemptively replaced our 14 year old 75 gallon water heater so I could keep the same size. When I was a kid in a house of 5, we only had a 40 gallon "electric" water heater. When my sister would use all the hot water, it took over 2 hours for that old electric water heater to recover. Needless to say, I took a lot of cold showers and hated it as anyone would. Once an adult, I said I would not run out of hot water again. Enter the 75 gallon water heater... We can have 2 different showers running and not have an issue. I can have the washing machine on a hot setting load of laundry and dishwasher running and still have plenty of hot water for the shower or tub. Running out of hot water is not an issue for me!

          DO NOT BUY
          I purchased this unit in December and less than four months later the pilot light and burner are broken. Its covered under warranty but you have to wait days to grt parts and for someone to install. I am COMPLETELY over this unit and wished I would’ve bought a professional grade one. Don’t waste your time or money. And they have the audacity to charge me extra for shipping the part that broke. Unreal

            40 Gallon Rheem Natural Gas Water Heater
            I am a regular homeowner and was able to install this water heater pretty easily. I have never owned a Rheem before but I installed it 2 weeks ago and am tickled pink. The recovery time is much faster than my 7 year old Kenmore that it replaced. The unit is also very quiet. I can hardly hear it run. I would absolutely buy Rheem again. Thank you!
