Well built - heavy duty, self cleaning. I am sure it will last the length of the warranty. Had it now for about a month. Met all of my expectations.

Also came in a week earlier than planned, that was wonderful. Advertising said we could get $100 rebate, but never gave us a clue how to do it, so that was very disappointing. Home Depot should have included instructions to the customers, because they advertise it, but don’t do the rebate.

    I understand it comes with a power transformer, so the unit itself is not using 110V AC straight. Can someone check what the output voltage / amperage of the transformer is (i.e. something like 110AC -> 12V DC 1A). Thanks!

    Asked by: Igor
    Thank you @NESASK for answering the question. Rheem, this is what answering a fairly simple question looks like. I did call 866-279-4566 and talked to tech support. Since I did not yet purchase the unit, they were not eager to help me, and transferred me to general or sales queue. Folks there understandably could not answer such a technical question. Also, whoever works for Rheem and answers these questions on HD site also did not bother to lookup the info, it would have taken a few minutes to post the answer. After experiencing Rheem support (or lack thereof) I decided to NOT go with this brand.

    Does the 40 gal performance platinum water heater have heat traps built in?

    Asked by: J Nick
    It has a power vent that traps heat in for better efficiency... I installed the water heater over a year ago and just had to wire up an out let close to it to power the vent (110 Volts) I have been incredibly happy with it so far ... lots of hot water and very quiet

    I like to get some information regarding where and when to purchase the extended labour warranty for the Rheem Platinum water heater and the prices for the different number of years of services.

    Asked by: Felix
    Thank you for asking. Any extended warranties are through The Home Depot. Please contact them for further assistance.

    My new Rheem Performance Platnium 40 gal gas water heater make very loud rumbling noise each time it starts to fire up the gas to heat the water. Is this normal? It has done this since day one. Is something wrong with the burner?

    Asked by: Felix
    Hi Gatz, How quiet is yours? Mine make loud burner noise when the gas ignites and the noise keep going until it stops heating up the water. My old GE from Home Depot make the burner noise when it started up and the noise came down and not noticeable until it finished heating. My neighbour has a two year old Rheem 40 gal. which sound the same as my old GE.

    cost of installation

    Asked by: Anonymous
    It cost me $449.57 for installation including labour, gas permit, and parts. The installation took 3.5 hours. It would have been less but the new heater was taller than the previous one and extensive rerouting of the exhaust from the water heater and the furnace to a new higher connection to the chimney was necessary in order to maintain the correct amount of rise to vent the heater to the chimney.
