I have or have had twelve 40 gallon Rheem/Richmond power vent hot water heaters in my rental units. The early models from 1998-2000 were excellent I have a couple that have gone nearly 17 years with no issues. Most lasted for around ten -twelve years and then the tank leaked. The newer models since 2008 have not faired as well. Of the four 2008-2009 models that I have, one has failed once (had to clean flame sensor, one twice -also flame sensor both times, one three times :vapor sensor twice and controller once. The fourth one has been ok . The failure rate in 6 to 7 years is thus over 75%, which in my opinion is not very good. The 800 number correctly diagnosed the problem on the first call all but once and sent needed parts covered by warranty, however I had to install the parts or clean burners myself or call a technician costing me about $100 for each service call. On my latest vapor sensor issue, I was without hot water for a week because they delayed sending the part.

I had a slightly older version of this model. 6 years and 11 months after installation, it sprung a leak and flooded my basement. The warranty expired at six years.

It is not difficult to make a tank that can maintain its integrity for a much longer time period -- many industries and even older water heaters last longer. I'm left to conclude that this tank was engineered to fail.

Have had this a few months now and it seems to work great. We've had no issues at all. We tried getting this size tank at our local HD and Lowes but they didn't carry this size. As usual, we found it on Amazon, priced right & free delivery. You can't go wrong with Amazon!

pilot and control is defective.

Call the manufacturer, say it is out of 6 years warranty.
I couldn't verify warranty by the serial number on their website, and it seems most of their products should have 10 years warranty.

Not happy.
