RHEEM Hot Water Tanks
Rheem hot water tanks and Rheem hot water heaters, are an amazing top tier brand to consider when looking for the best hot water tank. There are many different models of hot water tanks and water heaters. Rheem currently is making a line of tanks exclusive to home depot that is an “average” line. These models they sell are a toned down version of the model we sell at Urban Piping Ltd, and is the way that big box stores can cut their cost to make larger margins.
The version we sell at Urban Piping Ltd. is a favourite among our industry as it is known for its legendary reliability. The Rheem Classic Plus hot water tank has not changed that much over that last 3 decades. Perhaps with minor improvements but this tank makes the world of difference.Here is why…
- Glass liner , the glass liner in the Rheem hot water tanks prevents salt, rust, corrosion from happening on the internal steel tanks. This is a great improvement as most new houses have salt water softeners and the salt rusts out a hot water tank at a faster rate.
- 10 yr warranty; Our Rheem tanks come with a ten year warranty.
- Brass drain valves and pressure relief valves. It may not seem like a big deal but most other brands still use plastic drain valves of which we see considerable amounts of failure within 5 years.
Rheem hot water tanks typically have a life expectancy of approximately 10-15 years. They also are our most reliable hot water tank in Canada at the current time with only a 1/500 unit call back rate.
