        Provides all the hot water I need in my small home. Saves a huge amount of space. Hot water takes a few seconds longer after turning the faucet; I expected that as this system needs to heat up water as compared to a tank which has an immediate hot supply.

            What does standby mode mean
            Asked on 5/3/2014 by Shawk from Loyal Oklahoma

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              The standby mode helps the heater to conserve energy. This mode helps conserve power when the heater is not in use without having to sacrifice the time it would take to turn off and on.

              No, this heater would be too small for a whole house. It is recommended for on demand hot water, a single sink.

              The answer is more complex than yes or no. Assuming an average ground (and incoming water) temp of 70 degrees, and to achieve a 140 degree output temp (by adding 70 degrees of temp), you could expect about 1gpm output rate. Review the chart in the "specifications" tab for this item to compare the required temperature rise and how it might need your needs.

          LABOR, SHIPPING, AND PROCESSING COSTS

          This Limited Warranty does not cover any labor expenses for service, repairs, reinstallation, permits, or removal and disposal of the failed water heater, or defective component part(s). All such expenses are your responsibility. Rheem will pay the transportation costs for an “in-warranty” replacement water heater, or “in-warranty” replacement component part(s), to a convenient delivery point (selected by Rheem) near the place the original water heater, or original component part(s), is located: such as a local Rheem or Ruud water heater distributor.You must pay any local freight charges, including the cost of returning the failed water heater, or defective component part(s) to a convenient shipping location (selected by Rheem): such as a local Rheem or Ruud water heater distributor. Rheem does not authorize, recommend, or receive any benefit from any claims processing or similar fees charged by others to process warranty claims for any Rheem or Ruud water heater or component part(s). Rheem will not reimburse any party for these, or any other, fees not specifically covered in this Limited Warranty document.

          HOW TO OBTAIN WARRANTY CLAIM ASSISTANCE

          Any claim for warranty assistance must be made promptly. First, determine if your water heater is “in-warranty” (that is, within the Applicable Warranty Period).You can determine your unit's warranty status by adding its Applicable Warranty Period to its date of installation. However, if you do not have documentary proof of your water heater's date of installation, your unit's warranty status will be based on its date of manufacture. The first four digits of the unit's serial number represent the month and year it was manufactured. Add the Applicable Warranty Period plus ninety (90) days to the date of manufacture to determine whether the water heater is still covered by this Limited Warranty.You may also determine your unit's warranty status by obtaining the complete model number, complete serial number, and date of installation of your water heater and then accessing the “Warranty Verification” information on Rheem Water Heaters' internet website (www.rheem.com) or contacting Rheem Water Heaters' Claims Department (telephone (800) 621-5622) during normal business hours (in the Central Time Zone) to determine if the Applicable Warranty Period has expired. If your water heater is “in-warranty”, contact the plumber, or mechanical contractor, that installed it for assistance with the warranty repairs, or replacement, required.You may also select a plumber, or mechanical contractor, from your local Yellow Pages to assist you. Rheem Water Heaters' Technical Service personnel are available to assist you (by telephone at (800) 432-8373 or via e-mail at techserv@rheem.com) in obtaining “in-warranty” service or to answer your questions about the operation or repair of your water heater during normal business hours (in the Central Time Zone). Be prepared to provide the plumber, mechanical contractor, or Rheem Technical Service person you call with the complete model number, the complete serial number, and the date of installation of your water heater in addition to an explanation of your water heater problem. If an exact replacement is not available, Rheem will provide you with the current model of your water heater, or component part(s), or a replacement unit with comparable operating features. If government regulations or industry certification or similar standards require the replacement water heater, or replacement component part(s), to have features not found in the defective water heater, or the defective component part(s), you will be charged for the difference in price represented by those required features. If you pay the price difference for those required features and/or to upgrade the size and/or other features available on a replacement new water heater, you will also receive a complete new Limited Warranty (with the full Applicable Warranty Periods) for the replacement new water heater. Rheem reserves the right to inspect, or require the return of, the failed water heater or the defective component part(s). Each “in-warranty” failure water heater must be made available to Rheem (with the rating label and all the component parts intact) in exchange for the replacement water heater. Each defective “in-warranty” component part to be replaced must be returned to Rheem in exchange for the replacement component part. Warranty compensation is subject to validation of “in-warranty” coverage by Rheem Claims Department personnel.

          • To obtain warranty compensation for an “in-warranty” water heater failure, you must provide Rheem with: (at Rheem's option) either the failed water heater (with the rating label and all the component parts intact) or the complete original rating label (photocopies are not acceptable) removed from the failed water heater; the complete model number and the complete serial number of the Rheem or Ruud water heater that replaced the failed unit; and the date the original water heater failed.You may also be required to provide documentary proof of the failed water heater's date of installation to establish its “in-warranty” status.
          • To receive warranty compensation for an “in-warranty” defective component part, you must provide Rheem with: the defective component part; the complete model number and the complete serial number of the Rheem or Ruud water heater from which the defective component part was removed; and the date the defective component part failed.You may also be required to provide documentary proof of the date of installation of the Rheem or Ruud water heater from which the defective part was removed — or the date of purchase of the part (if it was purchased separately) — to establish the “in-warranty” status of the defective component part.
