    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointing I purchased this Rheem water heater with the 9 year warranty thinking the warranty would give me peace of mind. Instead the unit began leaking from the upper heating element gasket immediately upon installation. We contacted Rheem to fix it and they have been dragging their feet for days. Home Depot customer service has also been extremely unhelpful in that they will not do anything until Rheem takes action (and who knows when that will be.) An extremely disappointing and expensive purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation Just installed so no comment on long term performance. Installation was easy. Tank is several inches higher than old Rheem it replaced but no problen to adjust piping. Pilot lights are indicating correct cycle when drawing hot water. At this point would recommend to other purchasers. Last Rheem tank gave good service for over 20 years. Only replacing now due to house sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend this water heater. Easy to install and works great. Replaced my old gas tank with this new electric one. Have 3 people in house and it never runs out of hot water.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with this purchase I installed this tank in our home to replace a gas tank the same size and we are very happy! It has a quick refresh rate and it was really easy to install! The reason why it's only 4stars is because I live in Northern BC; when I ordered it online it was shipped from Eastern Ontario instead of the nearest HD a couple hours away!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Has been installed for a few weeks now and is performing well. Was an easy installation and I like the system lights that show you when the elements are working or when there is a problem ( hopefully not for some time)

    Description says 25amp and 10 gauge wire are needed.  Install instructions (bottom page 8) says 20amp and 12 gauge are permitted for 3800W system, which this is. Will 20amp and 12 gauge suffice? Located on Ontario, Canada

    Asked by: Joe1704
    This is not a question for laymen to answer in a Home Depot forum. One should ask an inspector from the appropriate hydro safety authority.

    Bonsoir pour le courant électrique nous avons du fil 10/2 et 2 breaker no 30 ; est-ce correct pour le chauffe-eau Rheem 39 IG performance plus garantie 9 ans avec deux éléments de 3800 watts?  il n’est pas encore branché. Merci

    Asked by: JackDum
    Merci d'avoir demandé, Jack. Pardonne à notre pauvre français. Votre chauffe-eau doit utiliser un disjoncteur bipolaire de 20 ou 25 ampères avec un fil de calibre 10. Si vous avez d'autres questions, veuillez nous contacter au 1-866-279-4566. Merci et passez une bonne journée.

    Why does the lower heating element light remain on continuously?  I have had it installed for 2 full days now and the lower element light has never turned off. Even after not using hot water over night the lower element light remains on.

    Asked by: Sparky
    This might indicate a problem with the heater.. Ensure that the both the upper and lower thermostats are set to the same setting. This might occur if the lower thermostat is is set higher then the upper thermostat. If this is set properly and you are still experiencing this, I would recommend contacting our tech support and warranty department at 866-279-4566

    ANODES: I see in comments that the annodes are replaceable and you recommend it should be replaced every 3 years . . . where and how do you replace the anodes? Nothing on this site or in the material says where they are, where to obtain the anodes?

    Bought a Rheem Performance Plus 40 gallon in October 2016. It was working fine until a few weeks ago when the amount of hot water had decreased. Installed by family member. How do I connect with Rheem for warranty? Their website is useless.
