Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replaced Once and now HomeDepot won't cover my ESP Bought in 2013 with 5-years ESP(Extended Service Plan)( which HomeDepot claims would provide 10-years of peace of mind parts/labour warranty), it was replaced by Comerco(a service company assign by HomeDepot) in 2015 due to manufacturer defect, now is leaking-->contacted Comerco-->refused to service and stated that it's out of warranty. Contacted store manager at HomeDepot store-->he said HomeDepot has nothing to do with the extended warranty and this is a manufacturer Rheem/Comerco plan and that the Extended Warranty Plans are no longer sold by HomeDepot since 2014....Bottomline, HomeDepot doesn't stand their sold product and services

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!! I purchased this unit from Home Depot and had it professionally installed. ONE DAY LATER it stopped working (Thursday night). I contacted Rheem and was told to purchase a replacement part. I did this and the unit still would not work. I contacted Rheem again (Friday morning) and was told they would send me a different part and it would take 2-4 business days then a technician would come out. So it will be potentially Thursday before the part arrives and then the technician can hopefully fix the issue. I would NEVER buy this product again nor would I EVER recommend this product or another Raheem water heater to any other customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made cheaper for home depot These tanks are the best on the market. I have never had a problem with them when I order them from my supplier. It seems they are made much cheaper for home depot (like many other things). To the lady who couldn't get the vapour sensor: i never had a problem finding one in town (Calgary). I never had a customer wait 6 days. If you can not locate, i would have requested it to be rush shipped (from a supplier nearby or factory). Perhaps, your technician was not a plumber? If he was an hvac tech, he likely won't know all the plumbing suppliers. Painting near your power vented tank would have caused problems regardless of the brand!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 tanks leaked I purchased a house that was three years old and owner told me that he had to replace the hotwater tank with a warranty claim because the tank was leaking, then not quite 5 years later the rheem tank leaked again, called rheem warranty and they said because the combined total of the 2 tanks exceeds the 6 year warranty it's not covered, I thought about buying this unit again but read a few others that said tank leaked as well, I'm going to now find a more reliable unit and I suggest you do as well, not worth the headache especially if your not mechanically inclined, I've been in maintenance for 22 years so if a unit fails the same way often its definitely will happen to your unit

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not reliable I have been plumbing for 15 years, have installed 100s of hot water heaters. This is the first and only time I will ever purchase a Rheem Hot Water Heater. Put it in a customers home, had 3 service calls. Two for flammable vapor sensor a 3rd was flashing a code that wasn't even on the troubleshooting guide. I ripped it out and installed a John Woods, like i should have in the first place. Then, I had to fight with Rheem for a refund. I ended up getting it but it took 4 phone calls and a couple emails. Don't waste your $ these tanks are garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy This water heater comes with a 6 year warranty which is because Rheem knows this water heater cannot last longer than 6 years. I had it for 6 years and 2 months when the unit starting leaking water all over the basement floor. Had an A Plus technician show up, spent 30 seconds to tell me it was unrepairable and dropped another $140 on it. Rheem would not replace the unit because it was just outside the warranty period. Hope Depot customer service was very unhelpful and offered me know solutions. If you are just looking for a maximum 6 year water heater this one is for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rheem Gas HW Tank PRODUCT UNDER RATED Just installed working great! Product is under rated in reviews at time of writing this one. Tank is NOT cheaply built and is manufactured the same way found at many Plumbing suppliers just Home Dept gets at a lower cost with their better buying power. In fact, I work for a company in the service industry and my crews always find that this tank is cheaper @ Home Depot than a supplier and more convenient to get as they always have stock and there is a Home depot every where making it quicker install for our clients. Tank installed easy in about 2hrs including removing old tank and installing to code including new PVC piping. I also find that this power exhaust is MUCH quieter that my old tank. Happy so far!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the purchase I bought this direct vent Rheem hot water tank yesterday December 18th to replace my old one. Got it hooked up last night but the unit would not start and gave me an error code for the vapour sensor. Tried to get ahold of technical services but they were closed called them this morning and was told it was a faulty sensor and they will ship it out to me and I would not receive it for 4 days. Right at Xmas time with my family all at my house. The technical support indicated that I had hooked it up wrong but it's a corded plug into a wall I responded he indicated that everything gets tested leaving the factory so most be something I did. This guy was rude and not much help. I will be ripping this hot water tank out and taking it back to Home Depot today and never buy a Rheem product again .

The Home Depot CA website lists this Rheem model 685410 40 gal as a 62" tall. The 50 gal unit is also shown as 62 tall. I would think the 40 gal model would be shorter? Is this a misprint on the web page?

Asked by: Ron1
The tank alone is 51".

Does this tank vent to the left side of the tank or the right. This image: https://www.rheem.com/product/performance-power-vent-50-gallon-natural-gas-water-heater-with-6-year-limited-warranty-xg50t06pv42uo/ shows it venting right, opposite to HomeDepot.ca

Asked by: gdi1942
Hi gdi1942. Thanks for reaching out. You can vent this tank in any direction you need it to go using system 636 venting. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Is the specified assembled height of 51.25" correct for the 50 gal and is this to the top of the tank only, or is to top of the Power vent?

Asked by: Mark
Hi Mark and thank you for your question. That is to the top of the tank.

Can someone please tell me what the vent temperature or class of venting is required for this tank? I am getting conflicting information from various contractors and online information. The manual only says that it is 2" PVC/CPVC certified to ULC-S636.

Asked by: crosstrax
Dear RheemExpert, Thanks for your input but that does not answer the question. I need to know what the class is for the water tank. According to code, Class IIa can use the white S636 IPEX pipe and fittings but only if below 65 Deg C. It would be Claas 11b if it is below 90 Deg C.

Two questions: 1) What is the difference between this model 630106 and the model 624556? 2) Why do Power Vents only have a 6 year warranty available vs others with much longer warranties?

Asked by: rexhavoc
1. 630106 is nature gas model, whereas 624556 is liquid propane water heater.
