Rheem hot water system 315 (491345) failed after 12 month when out of warranty

Rheem hot water system 315 (491345) lasted just over the 12 month warranty period and then ceased to function. Not a power supply issue. Now I've been advised by Rheem ill have to organise a repair persona and pay for parts. Such bad warranty periods on a product that has been around for years. Would easily switch to a more reliable company that uses better components to enable a longer warranty. Show details

Perfect hot hot water all day and night

Installed a new 160 litre Rheem electric hot water system (model 421160R7) on 23rd August 2019 (by Inline Plumbing & Electrical) for $1560 with new AVG tempering valve, delivery & removal of my 15 year old Rheem that still worked perfectly but was starting to produce rusty water. No complaints - it works. We have hot water all day and night with 4 adults in the home. Show details

Just a simple Question when Customers buy a new Rheem hot water system why Rheem do not place a Drain valve in the side of the unit to simplify draining the unit with a hose for the thechnician to be able to do their job easier placing the hose into a drain without having a mess @ the customers place you can always build the cost into each new unit & that be an exelent customer service. Cheers KT

So how long are your showers for each adult to put things into context?

And has there been any change to your electricity consumption (kwh) or bills when switching from Vulcan to Rheem?
