Questions & Answers

Q:I need a propane tankless water heater that can produce 7.0 GPM and that can be converted into a natural gas tankless water heater in the future. Which one would you recommend?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Adrian and thank you for your question. Home Depot does not offer a Rheem Tankless that can be gas converted.

          Bought this unit to replace an older model Rheem tankless water heater that was over 15 years old. Paid $500 for a local plumber to install, and it came out great. If you don't want to install yourself, pay for a local plumber to do the install, because I looked nto the Home Depot professional install service that they offer, and they told me that they start at over $3000 even for just a simple swap out. This water heater is great, I love how quiet it is, and it kicks on at a much lower water flow rate than our old one. Before, we had to wait for the toilet to stop running for the water pressure in the house to build back up before the water heater would sense enough pressure to kick on so we could wash our hands. Thankfully not the case anymore with this one. Now, even turning the sink on to just a trickle, the water heater will still kick on. This unit comes with everything you need, (valves, power cables, etc.) besides the concentric vent kit sold separately. This vent kit can get pricey if you need to run it all throughout your house. We only needed the smallest kit they sell, which is the 90 degree bend and the outside vent itself, so we paid $90 so not really a huge deal. Love endless hot water! I'm hoping this one will last as long as our old one!

            Pretty straight forward install. The concentric vent was a bit of a surprise and expense but I got it handled ok. Excited to see how it performs.

            It’s nice but beware the venting requirements. Special vents cost nearly $500 on top of water heater costs. You can’t just pick them up at the store either. They have to be ordered and they don’t provide dimensions for some pieces.

            So far it performs great. Temperature is controlled even with two showers and two faucets running simultaneously.

            We installed this in the house we built in Wisconsin last year, and now in our renovation in Ohio. Worth every penny - easy to install, plumb, and operates on 115V plug in. The only downside "heads up" is that the vent kit is required and costs another $300+ depending on how far you're venting - because it's medium efficiency it requires stainless steel kit for venting.
