Rated 2 out of 5 by from not adequate in Canada After installing I was receiving Error code. Contacted Rheem Cust. Serv. said it was water flow issue. Too high. After reading manual I determined it has to do with water temp. and pressure coming into unit. I had to turn down the main water valve in order to get unit to work. Returning to store. Shouldn't be sold in Canada.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inadequate design for proper electrical connection This model has only on knock out for the electrical connection but two #8/2 Loomex cables will not fit. I will have to cut a second hole for another Loomex cable. Also Home Depot does not stock or sell #8/2 Loomex required for the 2 40 Amp circuits

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted from 1964 until today (9/6/17) This was in our 1964 home when we purchased it 2 years ago. We'd never seen a table top model before.
