    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great water tank Great water tank. Only exception is that this tank requires a 115V-120V plug connection for the damper on the exhaust vent. Even that this tank is atmospheric, due to the energy star rating, it has a powered damper which requires a plug.

I bought it at a nice discount and later realized it is wifi compatible with the purchase of a $49 add on. The add on allows you to set a calendar/clock. If you only need hot water in the morning and evening that's the only time it heats water.

Purchased the unit 3 years and 4 days ago (Home Depot warranty is good for three years). The valve failed and the unit would not heat water. Rheem customer support provided little assistance, and said I needed to contact a local service representative. They said they would send me a list, but none was received. I contacted several distributors for a replacement valve, but none were available in Denver. Being the Friday before Labor Day weekend no local plumbers or Rheem service personnel were available for a visit for 5 days. The unit is too complicated to operate reliability, and customer support from Rheem is non-existent. To have hot water in the house within a week, the only alternative was to purchase a new hot water heater.

    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.
