Installation was easy and finished within one hour. One feature I really like is the temperature can be adjusted to whatever you desire. I have a 3 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath home. I recommend this product for everyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Endless Hot Water for my Jacuzzi Tub finally! Replaced the 50 gal hotwater heater monster after it began to leak after 14 yrs. I initially priced upgrading to a 75 gal tank but opted not to once I found out that the tank weighed 320 lbs and it would not actually fit in the space. I also previously had got an estimate to install a tankless gas water heater but found out it was extremely $$$$ because it requires plumbing, gas, electrical and venting. My final option was to look in to a whole house tankless electric water heater and install it myself. I researched several brands EcoSmart, Stiebel Eltron and Rheem. In general the instsllation process would be the same so the big difference was price and what size. In our area the homes typically have 200 Amp service frrom the street which limited the size to the 27kw because the 36kw requires 300 Amp service as wells as it could possibly trip the electrical circuit for the entire house. For example, lets say you are running the Air Conditioner and 2 showers and/or the dishwasher all at the same time. The install was not as simple as it appears. First running the 8 AWG wire across the mech room was a beast because this stuff is very heavy and requires strong hands to cut and manipulate. Copper piping requires some skill when soldering I mean it looks simple on the YouTube videos but in practice it’s quite challenging but I did get the hang of it eventually. One tip though is to solder as many pipes together first (I recommend working outdoors) and then put the final connections at the very end. Or instead of soldering you can use the sharkbite connectors which are easier but they are more $$. I have set the temp at 125F and have been running it for a week. However I have since learned that when filling the 80 gal Jacuzzi tub I am unable to run the hot water at full blast because the heater max out is at 5 gal/min but my tub faucet max out is at ~7 gal/min. To adapt I have had to turn the faucet half way so the water heater can stay hot (keep up) which just means it takes longer to fill up. Otherwise the hot water is great on all 4 showers, sinks and other appliances so it was well worth the effort.

    I'm interested in installing this water heater in my condo, which has 100 amp service from the main breaker. Is this enough power for this water heater?

    Asked by: Jeff
    Hi Jeff. Thanks for reaching out. I would say this is not a good fit. This unit requires 3 x 40 amp breakers, which exceeds your service. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    I buy this from edmonton and after 3 minutes there no more hot water and the water is not hot enough is it something wrong 

    Asked by: Mark
    Hi Mark. Thanks for reaching out. This unit should be able to provide an unlimited hot water supply up to a Shower, or a shower and a sink at the same time. If you feel there is something not right, feel free to reach out to Rheem technical support at 800 268 6966, and they should be able to assist. Hope this helps. Cheers.
