    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warranty void if you attach any additional required safety equipment to it. I bought this Performance Platinum gas water heater at Waterford Home Depot. I also purchased Rheem's Home Comfort WiFi module REWRA631GWH. I called Rheem customer service and contacted their Sales, Technical Support, and Tech Analyst Departments about my required Tjernlund side vent stack equipment. They all said anything attached to their heater would void my 12 year warranty and also was a safety issue! I'm very disappointed as I previously had a GE water heater, built by Rheem and also purchased at Home Depot, installed by a plumber. He attached the equipment on the GE, and said it was required by code. Luckily the GE lasted 17 years before it developed a pinhole leak. That is why I bought this Rheem. Now in order to keep the warranty I'll possibly have to install 2 full stacks if zoning lets me. The furness and water heater share this boosted side vent stack. Fast but poor customer support. Waiting for a resolution to have this installed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Warranty Service Bought this Oct 2019, broke 10 days ago. Repairman came, ordered part. Part came three days later, repairman came and it didnt work. He was not able to get thru on 1-800 service number. Why wouldnt they have designated number for service companies. Hot water tank still not working.

    I just bought it and have it installed. When I was in HomeDepot store, the sales told me that this model is eligible for the FortisBC Natural gas water heater rebate. Now I am applying for the rebate, I couldn't find the model from the list?

    Asked by: Marco
    Hi Marco. Thanks for reaching out. The Fortis website uses the product nomenclature rather then the MFG number. The corresponding nomenclature for this product is XG50S12DM40C0. Use this when submitting your claim. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    can this be used for in floor heat ( approx 1200 S.F. ) and personal use - 2 people and does hard water affect warranty

    Asked by: Jimi
    I am a DIY guy not a plumber but I do have experience with in-floor heat. If that is your only heat source and you are in a colder northern area (like Canadian prairies - where I live) you could be stretching your capacity on cold days - depends a lot on other factors like insulation quality in your house, etc. I have a 1000 sq ft rental house - half duplex built in late '70s. It is divided into two suites - one up, one in basement. House has floor heat in basement and forced air upstairs. There are two 40 gal water heaters for the whole house - 4-6 people living there. They have never had an issue with hot water shortage. I never saw anything in the warranty paperwork about water quality affecting warranty.

    Is the tank made of stainless steel?

    Asked by: Fredderson
    Not that I’m aware of but I believe it is ceramic lined with a beautiful dark grey powder coated outer steel shell.

    Can this be used with propane gas? Also what is the rated energy efficiency on the water heater?

    Asked by: jban
    Hi jban. Thanks for reaching out. No, you would have to special order a propane version through Home Depot. An in aisle associate can arrange this for you. The closest propane version would be Rheem item PROG50S-36P CN67. You can quote this number to them. This tank has a .67 efficiency rating which makes it Energy Star qualified. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    Can a power vent blower motor be used on this water heater by removing the exhaust box on top?

    Asked by: star
    Hi Star. Thanks for reaching out. The answer is no. The unit would not function properly, would not be rated for use in Canada, void the warranty, and would have implications on your house insurance. If you would like a Powervent unit, I would suggest buying Home Depot article 1000792787. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    thinking to purchase this unit, replacing rheem power vent. Is this unit consider a direct vent that doesn’t require power vent or just atmospheric vent?what this electronic box on top that uses 24V power does?Can I connect this with my existing PVC vent?

    Asked by: star
    Hi Star. This would be an atmospheric unit that vents from the roof of your house. It uses metal 'C' vent instead of PVC. The box on top controls a power damper that opens when the unit is in operation, allowing gases to escape, and then closes when the unit is no longer in operation, preventing heat loss. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    What exactly does the 12 year warranty cover?

    Asked by: Madeline
    Hi Medaline. Thanks for reaching out. This would be a 12, 12, and 1 warranty. To summarize: 12 Years on the tank due to leaks, -If the tank leaks over the course of the warranty, Rheem will replace it with a like model. 12 Years on the parts, -If the water heater stops working (stops making hot water), Rheem will provide the parts to get the unit up and running again. 1 Year on labour. -If either of the above items happen in the first year of operation, Rheem will provide the labour to fix the challenge. Hope this helps. Cheers.
