Rated 5 out of 5 by from RHEEM 36kW Electric Tankless Water Heater, Unit works very well. Check with qualified electrician before purchase to determine if the electrical panel in your home has enough unused breakers to accommadate the amps needed for installation. The Rheem 36W unit requires 4X40 AMP Breakers. Installation isn't a simple change over from electric hot water tank to a tankless.

Hi, Is there anyone who could recommend a certified tech to install this electric tankless water heater? I live Markham/Toronto Ontario. All the pros I called said they only know the gas version. Thanks in advance. 

Asked by: Macy
We purchased this product a year ago. Excellent product and Home Depot's price was the also the most competitive, Hired a plumber to plumb a line to unit then an electrician. Electician had never installed one of these units. He studied spec that came with unit then,upgraded our panel with a sub-panel then BINGO we had hot water.

Hi, would this work with only 2 breaker (2 wires) instead of 4? Would it still work at only 50% capacity, 18kw instead of 36, thanks

Asked by: Emmanuel
Thing is I already bought a 36 and home depot will not exchange it even tho its brand new in box...  I would just want to trade it for a 18, but no... Now am stuck with it.

Asked by: Lisa
Hi Lisa. Thanks for reaching out. This unit uses 4 x 40 amp breakers with 8 AWG wire. In winter, it would run about 2 showers at a time. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Would this be good for a cottage. We are connected to lake and sand sometimes comes through the faucets, would this be a problem? The cottage is small with only one washroom and two sinks, is electric or gas better? Why?

Asked by: ShoLev
Hi ShoLev. Thanks for reaching out. This unit is great for vacation properties. We recommend that you also have a filtration system, and water softner to avoid any challenges, and carefully review the electrical requirements with your installer. Hope this helps. Cheers.
