Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I bought this three months ago. It was very easy to install. It was located 15 feet from my breaker panel. I had 10 gauge wire on hand so decided to use it with a 20 amp double pole breaker. I installed it inline (total storage is 103 Imperial gallons of hot water) with my gas water heater that I wanted to shut off and have (I have a solar system). I run a circulation pump with hot water return lines from the furthest bathrooms. Best thing I have done. Instant hot water. Daughter and son in law and grandkids visited for a month. 7 people in the house (3 showers, dish washer and washing machine going at the same time) and never out of hot water. I am not an electrician but it was very easy to hook up. Completely installed it myself and it was easy using Pex. It has only been three months but so far very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should House with 5 people so loooots of water usage. Set both thermostats to 140 and we never run out of hot water. Top thermostat was factory set at 125 but that wasn't enough, it was very easy to adjust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal on a big tank Best deal on a larger tank. This tank is exactly the same as the next model up from Rheem that is $150 more, the only difference being this model has 3800 watt elements vs 4500 watt elements. This means the recovery time is maybe 15 minutes longer. It’s a big tank so it doesn’t matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great H/W tank Very nice water tank. Once i hooked it up and had hot water. I was doing other electrical and shut the power to tank. 2 days later i still had very warm water. I didn't realize i had shut breaker off to it. That was impressive to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came with Broken element hi, i guess i just got unlucky and got a water heater tank that came with a broken element. Though this could happen to anyone, what I am more frustrated with is that rheem doesn't give any labor warranty on this, so they would not send any technician to repair the problem. They will send me a new part and let me repair it myself which does not make sense at all. I am really not happy with this purchase, more problems for nothing I should of just went with GIANT. Please be careful before buying Rheem product.

My current tank setup is Giant EcoPeak Super Cascade, which uses 3 heating elements, requires 20amp. Can this water heater work with 20amp?

Asked by: Shom
At 3800 watts running on 240 volts, this heater will draw about 16 amps. This is well within the capability of a double 20 amp breaker. Check the electrical code for your area. Normally a breaker can run at 85% of its stated amperage. So 16 amps is only 80% of 20 amps, hence, my answer. Mine is running perfectly well on a double 20 amp breaker. A double 15 amp breaker is not adequate and dangerous since the wires connecting the breaker to the heater could overheat if the wires are only rated for 15 amps, that is, 14 gauge. Not only that, a 15 amp breaker should snap off if 16 amps is drawn from it.

On prétend que le modèle ecopeak de cascade peut fonctionner avec un disjoncteur de 20 ampères et un fil de calibre 2/12. (240X20) X80%=3840 watts. Alors est-ce dire que le modèle Rheem 63 avec éléments de 3800 w. peut fonctionner même façon

Asked by: Karavis
Merci d'avoir demandé, Karavis. Ce chauffe-eau utilise des éléments de 3800 watts. Le chauffe-eau doit utiliser un double disjoncteur de 25 ampères ou un double disjoncteur de 20 ampères avec un fil de 10 ou 12 AWG. Si vous avez d'autres questions, veuillez nous contacter au 1-866-279-4566. Merci et passez une bonne journée.
