Installation part is easy .I had old 15 years water heater so I went to Lowe's and bought water heater complete installation kit with flexible pipe .It worked great start right away.No noise , need any match and lighter for ignition .worked great .I like Rheem
The water heaters arrived and I inspected both before signing off, and had no problems.
Dragging two water heaters with help, teenage boys do have uses, into the attic and the old ones down was a chore.
I ended up replacing pans and installing valve in outlet line while doing the installation.
As for the new heaters a month into service and no issues. Hooking them up was a not bad except for bending the copper lines for the inlet and outlet. The original plumbers did a poor job of installing the lines too close to the water heaters requiring tight bends. A little more thought and it would have been much easier. I replaced some steel nipples in the copper lines with brass, tested the heater, then started filling. The gas installation was the easier, that installation was done much better on the original build and required very little more than reattaching the line and checking for leaks.
Once filled I purged air form the water tank until sinks ran water.
Then fired up the gas following the procedures on the heater. The worst part of their design and I am not sure what alternatives would be, is trying to find the pilot light for ignition to view, while striking the automatic igniter. I had to lay flat on the floor to look through inspection port and still missed it on one heater it was already lit when I was getting ready to give up.
Arrived in fair condition, significant dents in the lower portion of the outer skin
(in the perforated vent area). Packing box itself was a shambles. No functional damage,
however, but enough damage that if purchased at a retail store they would have had to
discount it to sell it.

It came quickly, was the size we needed, and seems excellent! We couldn't find the tall, thin size in stock in a store, but this was a great alternative.Published on November 28, 2013 by MEL

For the price, I think it would be hard to beat this water heater. I shopped at Lowes & Home Depot, and their prices were about $150-200 higher. Read morePublished on January 29, 2012 by Norman A. Thompson
