Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buget hot tank. Looked at a few of these budget hot tanks. Choose this one mainly because it was very close in size and performance to my very old leaking one. Not much to change when fitting. I found the instructions to be good if you read them closely. Plan how you are going to do the job. Get ALL the stuff you need before you even start. List what you are going. Gas , water and flue. All needs to be 100% when you are done. The tank looks good and works great. 6 years ? Who knows these days. Is the 9 year one better or just the same tank that they charge more for it ? Think you need to be pretty handy to install one of these.Take you time. Get help if you need it. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shopping experience My old Home Depot gas water heater started leaking water everywhere. The tank had split after 12 years of trouble free operation. Home Depots website showed me some new water heaters that might work but it didn't list dimensions. The model I has looking at had "short" and "tall" varients that Home Depot did not show. I had to look up the model number on the manufacturer website to be sure the unit Home Depot had in stock would fit. Home Depot delivered my on line order within 24 hours. I installed it myself and it works perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick. For the price, the water tank is easy to install and have not had any major problems with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Well the last one was still going strong after 9 years, but was a rental, same brand and size, hoping this one lasts that long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go elsewhere for this Defective right out of the box. Took 7 days to sort out the replacement with Rheem ...all the while without hot water. I would avoid Home Depot for purchases like this as they won't deal with the warranty once you leave the store.....which leaves you high and dry when something goes wrong. On the phone with Rheem for 4 hours just to find out I need to wait for a part to ship from 3000 miles away. I have better things to do with my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smell Gas - Customer Service Failed to follow Up! I bought this Rheem 40 gal a week ago. Less than 24 hours after professional installation was complete, I noticed a gas smell coming from the Honeywell control. I searched online and found many people mentioning this and in some cases customers reported that the Honeywell control was replaced under warranty. My question then became, how do I know if I have a faulty control??? I called Rheem customer service in Canada and they (Jill - supervisor) told me that it was normal to smell a small amount of gas coming from the control. When I insisted that I wanted one of their technicians to inspect it, she said Rheem would send one. It has been a week and we have not heard from a technician or Rheem. We still smell gas and are worried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Replaced my old Rheem with this. Not difficult to install. Everything is working fine. Won't be able to report on longevity until years from now.

Can this water heater be transported laying on it's side in the back of a pickup truck?

Asked by: ksc1
Hi ksc1. Thanks for reaching out. The answer is no. A water heater should always be transported upright (strapped if possible). There are two principle reasons. The first is the anode rod (a long metal rod on the inside of the tank) that hangs from the top. Laid on its side, a bumpy truck ride can cause the rod to wave back and forth smashing against (and breaking) the porcelain interior. This in turn, can cause premature corrosion and void the warranty. There are also a lot items installed on the side of heater that are easily damaged if bumped around (gas valves, drain valves, etc). Hope this helps. Cheers.

I have a leaking old tank. Have been reading some negative comments regarding the Vesta self powered self diagnostic control valve. Have these gas valves been mostly dependable? Are there thousands and thousands of these in service without problems?
