Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem since new tank installed Since the water heater was installed my hot water faucets (all of them) sputter violently for about ten to twenty seconds. (cold faucets are fine) I raised this issue with the store and they offered a couple of suggestions. 1. I opened all faucets in the house (including toilet flushes and outside hose bibs) for a period of 15 minutes. This did not solve the problem. 2. I completely emptied the hot water tank, refilled it with all hot faucets open. This did not solve the problem. 3. I also had the installation contractor return to witness the problem. We drained all hot and cold plumbing pipes, drained the hot water tank completely, refilled the system with hot faucets open until flow was steady. Next morning sputtering returned. 4. I spoke with Rheem and was told it was not their problem. 5. I had Culligan technician service my water treatment system to assure me there were no issues with that. Several people have suggested that this can be caused by the new water heater's anode rod causing a chemical reaction creating gas inside the tank. This would explain why the sputtering is only on the hot water faucets. The sputtering is most violent first thing in the morning. If during the day I do not use hot water for 2 or 3 hours the faucets sputter for a shorter time and not quite so violently. In other words the longer I don't run hot faucets the more gas buildup in the hot water tank. I spoke with Rheem again and they refused to investigate the anode rod theory. I told them there are several Professional Plumbers'Forums online who have identified this exact problem and recommend replacing the anode rod with one of a different metal. The Rheem representative refused to entertain that concept and offered no other assistance. If Home Depot and/or Rheem cannot help me resolve this I will be asking to have the tank replaced.

Is this unit propane or natural gas? The description says propane but the specification sheet says natural gas?!?

Asked by: Northern1
Hi, this should be propane... but I strongly recommend confirming product number with customer service. Their online spec sheet had an error on it when I first purchased this item. I wanted a propane and when I went to pick it up... I got a natural gas. They might not have fixed this issue yet. That being said, I reordered the correct one after confirming with customer service and I got 50 gal propane heater. It works great. Hope this helps.
