Hello Kosta, I would recommend reaching out to your local home depot store as labor prices vary from area to area, Typically its about 2-3 hours of work. depending on how much needs to be changed. However, would recommend contact home depot to find out how much such an installation might run.

Asked by Id10T November 27, 2020

Answer

Hello Id10T , Fanatastic question, So the best way i could describe it to you is that with a standard tank type heater you have a finite supply of hot water lets say 50 gallons, and once that 50 gallons is gone, No matter how you use it 3 showers back to back or filling the bathtub, whichever. you would need to wait for the tank to refill, With a tankless water heater you have an infinite supply of hot water but you can only use a limited number of fixtures at a time. So you would only be able to run two showers for example but those two showers could be run all day long if you wanted to. I hope this makes sense.

Where can I find the maintenance information? I don’t have any papers.

What size tankless do I need to replace a 50 gallon water heater

Asked by Joe November 4, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking. Sizing a tankless water heater is different than sizing a tank water heater. To accurately size a tankless water heater for your needs you will need to take into account the ground water temperature the unit will be supplied with and the amount of fixtures in your home that run hot water. For assistance sizing a tankless unit please contact us directly 866-720-2076.

Shipping was delayed by one day because of current events. No problem. Unless you don't have hot water LOL. It arrived intact. I installed this in about 5 hours. It works perfectly. I actually replaced the same Rheem model installed over 10 years ago. It worked trouble free for over ten years until it gave trouble. It was more cost effective to replace than to attempt repair because of its construction. No regrets, highly recommended.

Replaced a Rinnai Integrity model that was at least 11 years old. It had been serviced and still couldn't keep up with the simplest of hot water demands. Went with Rheem 8.4gpm unit as Rheem is supposed to do better at altitude (8,600ft in CO) and it keeps up with a shower and laundry and a sink running at the same time. It suits or small household well. Easy enough install since everything was nearby from the previous unit, just had to line up the new exhaust to the wall and work from there. Would have gone to the bigger gpm model if we had a 3rd bath.

Thanks for the great review! We are thrilled to hear you are enjoying your new Rheem Tankless Water Heater and pass along a thank you to Randy for the recommendation.

Easy install?
I was hesitant to purchase a tankless water after reading many reviews and cost of installation. My home was built in 1957 so it had galvanized piping throught out. This included the water being IN the house across from the bathroom, unbelievable. Is this item a straight forward install? No, not at all. After about $2500 in all new PEX plumbing and a new main line from the street, moving the water heater outside was worth all the time and hassel. I should have been a plumber. Ugh. Anyway, Rheem makes a great product and have been making water heaters for years. I recommend reseaching whats going to be the best for your needs. My second choice was going to be the PVC venting Rheem. That one had the easiest venting around. If you’re going to have it installed, call many people for quotes. Ask to see install pictures and if they are really good installers, they should have them. Who doesnt take pictures of their handy work?? Everyone has phones, lets be real about it. Also, not every install will be straight forward. Be prepared for things to come up that werent quoted in the initial bid, especially with plumbing. YouTube it.

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!

Quality from over protected shipping box. Down to ease of install and operation. Make sure to pre order stainless 3/5 exhaust heat exchanger ducting. Purpose built exhaust required. Have to order before install. My local home Depot doesn't carry exhaust in store. Once installed works perfectly .
