If it passed inspection, it must have been installed to code. Where I live, as long as it passes, they don't care who did the work. A homeowner can do everything for a house but well and septic.

My neighbor is an inspector for commercial tankless and he says return it. They break down a lot, need expensive maintenance every year (flushing) and after 2 years the model is no longer in production and there are no parts.
I also noticed Rheem does not have a 800 number for customers.

Any comments?

Well, my Rheem has not broken down in the four years we've had it. And the manual for mine says nothing about flushing the unit, so I have not done so. What would ever accumulate in a tankless unit that would require flushing?? I know there are issues with tankless units if you have hard water, but I do not.

I have a Tagaki (sp) that has been going strong for 9+ years with not one single problem. It is gas fired.

If anyone is interested in elec I installed about 3 months ago, a steibel eltron tempura 24 plus.


It rocks. German made, unlike most other Tankless it has a regulating valve that limits flow to make temperature so your water temp is always rock steady no matter the demand it just comps by flowing less.

After a lot of searching I would not recommend rheem. Amazon reviews are helpful, go check different models there. Here is mine:

Hard water when heated will cause minerals to coat the heating elements in the unit.

Some people like to flush with vinegar or clr one a while to clean the insides.
