Richmond Water Heaters

Made by Rheem. I have the 60 gallon Power Vent unit, and it keeps up with the demands of our family. Plus got a $50 rebate from our local Gas supplier Ameren Illinois.

for $297, you are getting a steal on it. For my area, I am showing that one at $329 before the 11% rebate, if they are still running that.

When we installed mine, we took out the Anode, regreased it with pipe dope, and then put it back in. That way if we ever have to take it out at four years, it will come right back out.
Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
