By the way the utility has a $100 rebate on units with a .62 or higher EF rating. Sixty days to submit the paperwork. Pay attention
The price with shipping came out to around $590 which was significantly less than what I would have paid for a comparable high-efficiency 50 gallon unit from a local retailer.
A note on the delivery process is that although the unit did arrive in good condition on the day it was supposed to, during the ordering process at Amazon, it allowed me to select the delivery time. I selected 8 - 10am and figured I would work half a day from home to sign for the delivery. The trucking company did not show up until after 4pm. Had I known this, I could have worked a full day and not used time off waiting for them. Oh well, I dont blame Amazon or Rheem, so Im not going to let that affect my opinion of the product, just wanted to let everyone know that this could happen to you.
Installation was as expected for a typical hot water tank. In my area, I cannot use any flexible water or gas lines, so everything had to hard connected, which isnt a huge deal, just requires a little more patience to make everything fit.
One word I'll say on installation which isnt obvious by reading the manual, if you are hard wiring copper pipe directly to the Hot and Cold sides of the tank, you MUST use a di-electric union coming out of the tank. A di-electric union is required anytime you are connecting two different types of metal together. Without one, over time, corrosion will appear. My water lines are 1/2" and the output of the tank is 3/4" so I needed a di-electric union that is threaded 3/4" on one side and 1/2" sweat on the other end.Read more ›
To top it off Rheem is only going to cover 65% of the cost of replacing this broken stem of theirs. Not even willing to cover the cost of the part until I pushed them. They are a very bad company. They are trully disappointing.
Don't do business with this company.

Great price for an efficient water heater. Cost less to use than my old 40 gal. heater and NEVER runs out of hot water. Good service from Amazon as well.Published on June 27, 2014 by Eric Fessenden
Our 40 gallon unit rusted out so replaced it with this one. It was larger, and super heavy to lift into place but provided cheaper and longer lasting heated water. Read morePublished on May 13, 2014 by Gregory Rhoden
I am happy with this product.
Good product, Worth of maney. Much better than home depot water heater.
Highly recommended to others.
The unit is outstanding. But the shipping can cause nightmares, and the tech support for rheem IS a nightmare. Read morePublished on February 4, 2014 by Danny Danny

Either it was my fault, for not reading the SMALL PRINT more thoroughly, or I just didn't understand that the water heater was only guaranteed for 5 years! Read morePublished on October 27, 2013 by JIM
Arrived in excellent condition strapped to a pallet. It was easy to install. It has been working perfectly so far. All in all the whole procedure met my expectations.Published on September 23, 2013 by Paul Quay
Put it in (easy), turned it on (also easy), and have been able to forget about it since. You can't ask for more out of a workhorse appliance. Read morePublished on June 10, 2013 by Scott
