Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overstates functionality in product description States 2 to 4 people. Realistically, good for one. We are two adults and cannot have 2 showers in a row without it turning cold. These are not long showers. We've had this unit for several months and I'm finally spurred to write after too many incidences like this. I think, to suit 2 people with realistic/conservation minded water use, the next unit larger would be more suitable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Do not buy any Rheem products. They last a maximum of 6.2 years and since the warranty only covers 6 years they won’t help you out. Home Depot was also very unhelpful with all of this!

is this tank "glass lined"?

Asked by: Warren
Usually its marked on the tank if glass lined, and the price seems too low to be a lined tank

Just moved in. Electric water heater. Mod. # RR410T. Item #9015101027979. 175 Litres. Ser.No 0104J13824. Would like to increase the water temp but cannot find the thermostat on the unit. Cheers Jim

Asked by: Jimmy
Hi Jimmy. Thanks for reaching out. To adjust the temperature on a standard electric water heater; 1) Turn off the water heater. 2) Remove the jacket access panels and insulation, exposing the thermostats. 3) The thermostat protective cover should not be removed. 4) Using a small screwdriver, set the thermostats dial pointers to the desired temperature. 5) Replace the insulation and jacket access panels. Turn on the power to the water heater. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Does this have a mixing valve?

No, the only temperature control on this unit is the thermostat. Mixing valves are normally installed separately.

Need help on voltage supply (breaker type) for this item. Believe the HD electirc supply person is wrong

Purchase all items at HD today. 12 gauge 2 conductor wire (black & white) and he said 20 AMP single pole breaker. Heater has black and red connection wire. Only way to connect supply voltage with a single pole is black to breaker white to white common studs in panel. only supplying 110 volts to heater. If rated for 240V, should the breaker not be a double pole single throw 20 Amp? Then supply black to black (110V) and connect white to red and at panel white to other pole of the breaker.(110V) supply. No neutral connection. I dont want to hook 110 to each heater connection if this is not proper or may cause damage. I questioned this with stor personnel and they said he has always connected it with a single pole breaker. Need your help for 3000 Watt 240V heater
Asked by: Anonymous
240 volt is connected to a double pole breaker, 120 volt is connected to a single pole breaker. Cheers. Rheem.

Aside from the $65.00 price differential, what is the difference between models 629964 and 629971

Asked by: Anonymous
As far as I have been able to determine the only difference is the warranty. 629964 has a 6 year tank warranty and 1 year parts. The other one has 6 years on the tank AND parts as well as a 1 year service warranty.
