Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power vent natural gas heater 50 G Great water heater. If you originally had the previous model from years ago, the mechanism on top has changed so you may have to cut or adjust your piping to fit when installing this one .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works well...when it’s not broken This water heater was installed by our home builder 3 1/2 years ago. It’s loud but seems to be fairly energy efficient. However, I feel like it’s designed to have parts fail regularly. At the 3 year mark the pressure relief valve failed causing our basement to flood while we were at work so we got to file an insurance claim and tear up our basement. Six months later the flammable vapour sensor has failed and since no one carries parts for this unit we have been showering in cold water for two weeks and despite ordering the part direct from Rheem it still hasn’t shipped. My advise is to buy something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replaced Once and now HomeDepot won't cover my ESP Bought in 2013 with 5-years ESP(Extended Service Plan)( which HomeDepot claims would provide 10-years of peace of mind parts/labour warranty), it was replaced by Comerco(a service company assign by HomeDepot) in 2015 due to manufacturer defect, now is leaking-->contacted Comerco-->refused to service and stated that it's out of warranty. Contacted store manager at HomeDepot store-->he said HomeDepot has nothing to do with the extended warranty and this is a manufacturer Rheem/Comerco plan and that the Extended Warranty Plans are no longer sold by HomeDepot since 2014....Bottomline, HomeDepot doesn't stand their sold product and services

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 tanks leaked I purchased a house that was three years old and owner told me that he had to replace the hotwater tank with a warranty claim because the tank was leaking, then not quite 5 years later the rheem tank leaked again, called rheem warranty and they said because the combined total of the 2 tanks exceeds the 6 year warranty it's not covered, I thought about buying this unit again but read a few others that said tank leaked as well, I'm going to now find a more reliable unit and I suggest you do as well, not worth the headache especially if your not mechanically inclined, I've been in maintenance for 22 years so if a unit fails the same way often its definitely will happen to your unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing a 25 years old 50 gal Rheem tank I replaced a 20 plus years old 50 gal Rheem that began to leak with another one. The newer one was missing brackets on the bottom, as a result, it had to be placed directly on the ground. I this Rheem, should include brackets/ stands that makes it optional for installing the tanks. I used a few floor tiles to lift it off the ground So far, it is working very good., its a perfect fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!!! I read the reviews, I thought, there are a few good ones, maybe those people were just unlucky. Nope! Don't buy this! I had the unit installed and the heater wouldn't start. Followed the instructions...nothing. Had a gas fitter come look at it, the flammable vapor sensor wouldn't let the unit fire up. He tested the air, no gas. I called the handy number on the side of the heater. You get two options, press one and you get told you selected an invalid selection, press two and you get told "goodbye" and hung up on. WOW!! I found another number on Google, had to press the wrong extension to actually get through to a real person. Rheem is mailing me a new part, problem is, it takes about 4 business days to get here and they don't expedite shipping to Canada. After reading the number of people this has happened to, they have a problem that I hope they fix. I am only on day one with my new heater. Hope it is all uphill from here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Direct replacement for my original. Cheap shipping to remote location, did take a few weeks though. Happy with purchase.

hello, wondering if you can purchase the blower motor with fan assembly separate from rheem gas hot water tanks?

Asked by: norm
This is a Parts question ... suggest you contact manufacturer directly.  Home Depot only sells a complete hot water heater.

Does this water heater support a Wifi monitoring system like Econet? I recently purchased a Rheem REWRA631GWH for my new heater and it apparently isn’t compatible because it plugs in but does not light up on the module at all.

Asked by: JimF
Hey JimF, Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, It does not appear that this power-vented model is Econet capatiable

Two questions: 1) What is the difference between this model 630106 and the model 624556? 2) Why do Power Vents only have a 6 year warranty available vs others with much longer warranties?

Asked by: rexhavoc
1. 630106 is nature gas model, whereas 624556 is liquid propane water heater.

Can you convert this unit to burn propane instead of natural gas? I don't have natural gas where I live.

Looking at buying this PV water heater but no info on the warranty. Is everything covered including controls, thermal couple ...everything ? And who looks after the repairs if needed for the term ? This is an important feature.

I live in a rural area and use propane. Can these water heaters be converted to propane and if so do the conversion kits come with it or how much for a conversion kit.
