Q:Rheem Gladiator Platinum EWH (55g 5500W) 22-1/4" diam tank, incl Leak Detection. OK to use 24" diam Alum Drain Pan? Rheem specified max 2" Depth for pan. Why it matters? Water level is determined by Lower rim of drain pipe fitting anyway!

Answer This Question

A:  Better off using 26". Spec's state 2" Minimum and the 24" only gives you 1 3/4 inches. It might hit the drain, because it sticks out inside the pan a ways. I would think the height of the pan should be OK.

          Answer This Question

          A:  I don't think so, that is made for PVC. PVC is cheap, easy to work with and much more durable than hose. You could simply use that to run to your pump and a few elbows.

            A:  As long as the conncections match, then why not.

                  A:  NO! There is an adapter for connecting a drain line to it, but you would NOT want to plug it. That defeats the purpose. It's supposed to catch any leaks and route it either outside or to a drain to prevent flooding. If you plugged it, it would overflow.

                          A:  Not an answer, I'm bumping this. I have the same question. It's been a year and a half since the "manufacturer" said they would look for the gauge of the aluminum. Hard to believe it would take them more than an hour to find the build specs, or put a micrometer on it and post the results. Can anyone answer this?
