    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water heater So far it`s working good. but a friend of mine had a rheem water heater and it rusted out in 3 yrs so I hope mine lasts longer than that

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot recommend this tank Can't enter negative rating. Hot water tank purchased to replace failed hot water tank failed, leaking profusely at valve. Arranged for plumber to return and replace tank again, second replacement tank exactly the same problem. Home Depot says deal with Rheem, getting runaround and lack of service from them. Very unsatisfied.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product This product lasted exactly one day, on the second day I realized I can't return this product to the store because it is gas powered. Because it was a long weekend, I contacted the manufacturer after a long weekend without hot water. The support staff was condescending but after troubleshooting they agreed the product should be looked into by a technician since it is broken, they assured me a local plumbing company would contact me within 24 hours, but after 48 hours without anyone contacting me, I called the manufacturer again, to realize they hadn't really contacted a local plumbing company, no one was coming to deal with the warranty. Up to that point, the manufacturer assured me again a local plumbing company was coming, but this time I was sent an email along with the local plumbing company name that was to come to check the unit. After 24 hours, I contacted this plumbing company myself and inquired about the warranty call, which they claim they hadn't received, but that they would send someone. To cut it short, there is a manufacturing defect on the heater and they had to order a part directly from the manufacturer and it's been over two weeks (and counting) without hot water. With small children on my house this is a total nightmare. I can't stress enough how terrible this experience has been and how low I think of Rheem and their practices and how bad homedepot is looking for selling this garbage. Don't buy this!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK Seems like a good water heater. No problems installing and working well. Only problem I had, was that the unit was damaged. The metal casing on one side was pushed in pretty badly. Did my best to fix it but it is still noticeable. Not worth the hassle to exchange it.

    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out with the old Delivered to my doorstep with all the parts ready for the gas fitter to install. So glad to replace the rusty old one and leave the house knowing I won’t return to a flooded basement.

    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?

    Is the anode rod aluminum or magnessium? If aluminum, will I be able to install magnessium anode rod after purchase?  Thanks.

    Asked by: Sam T
