For the money it is a good little heater. It serves my wife and I very well and she has enough Hot water to take Her shower, shampoo and rinse her hair twice. Was very easy to install. Beings we live in our RV the old heater gave out and we replaced it with this model of heater. We installed it under the sink area where the old heater was. No remodeling required, it fit very well in it's place. We have a good source of electricity so no need of a propane heater.

The Reliance 6 gallon water heater # 66 SOM K6 was just like the write up, was easy to install and works great, and was delivered in 2 days as promised. Be sre to read your directions, and purge all the air from the tank before turning it on, you can burn out the heating element in a short time if you fail to completly purge the air.

Reliance 6 6 SOMS K 6 Gallon Compact Electric Water Heater - now installed and replaced a 22yr old 20 gallon water htr on my boat - it is significantly better delivering hot water very quickly - if not taking long showers it's well worth it and the $$ savings are significant over a new 20 gallon type

I just converted my home from 2 50-gallon Hot water tanks to a tankless system. My home is piped with a recirculation line for instant hot water at each faucet. I installed this little unit to use as a recirculation tank system with a pump to keep this feature when I went with a tankless unit. Although a tankless system will give you endless hot water, having a recirculation system with this small 6-gallon tank eliminates what most call the "Cold Sandwich" effect. Without it, you will have a delay in hot water until the hot water from the tankless unit reaches your faucet pushing out the cold water sitting in that line. My home is 3200sq ft with 3 1/2 baths. This little 6-gallon unit is perfect for my home size and recirculation setup. I did have to return the first unit I ordered as the electric heating element popped on power up. Second unit I received worked great. And YES, I did make sure the tank was full of water before I powered it up. For those that don't know, all electric hot water tank elements are made to operate in water. If you attemp to heat them up with no water, only air they will pop every time. Guess I just got a bad one and it happens.... Overall a great little unit, easy to install and also has top in/out ports if that are plugged from the factory. In case you need to feed these from the top, just remove the plugs and swap them for the side nipples. Then take the plugs and use them on the side openings. Easy!

I purchased this product in Aug of 2012. It worked for 3 days and would no longer heat water. Performed functions as described in owners manual (a generic which did not address my water heater). When contacting tech service, I was told that the problem was the thermostat and their main impetus seemed to be to get me off the phone. The second person to which I spoke was helpful, but told me that the problem was the heating element. In order to get a replacement, it would be necessary to send them the sales slip and that any evidence of any replacement part purchased would need to be faxed. Also, since this was not in my home per se, but in a shop (where it actually would get less use), the warranty would be restricted to one year or I could have it certified by a plumber. Even with the one year restriction, the unit is still under warranty; however, a replacement part could would not be sent and that I should proceed with local purchase as described above.
My problem is not the price (about $13). When a company acts this way, it concerns me. It appears that they do not want to stand behind their product or their warranty and wish to put in place as many roadblocks as possible if problems do arise. They would not accept Amazon confirmation of sale.

What is there to say. It's a water heater. It works as it should. Installation is no problem. The pressure relief valve seems a little weak as it had a tendency to weep small amounts of water with variations in water pressure well below the pressure maximum.

I have it sitting in my room in a fifth wheel because it wouldn't fit where the original water here is located . I am glad it is small. LOL. I hooked up a extension cord to it and to it's own 20 amp breaker / it's own outlet. Yeah I probably could have used a 15 amp breaker but whatever.. I plug it in and in less than an hour ( about 35 to 40 mins ) I am taking a hot shower. I take 5 minute showers and shave afterwards at the sink. So far I haven't ran out of hot water. I gave 5 stars because it works. If something changes I will for sure let you know.. Have a great day : )

The tank, once installed, had a bad pressure relief valve (leaked a cup of water every 30 minutes). Blowing the value, under and OFF pressure, did not fix. Called the number on the paperwork that came with the tank, and they shipped a new one overnight. Tank working great as a secondary tank for a Rinnai tankless heater for several months now.
