    No more Rheem hot water solar panel

    published

    3 of our investment property. 8 months old, 1 years old and 3 years old. All the panel cracked and leaked. Rheem refused to replace it because they are not covered by frosted. Thank you, Simonds & Rheem. Every time when winter comes, we have to pull them apart or may have to put a blanket on those solar panels.

    Falls apart as soon as warranty is up.

    published

    Barely a year out of warranty and the top around the anode is completely rusted. Water leaking from the top. Also the solar monitor lights aren't even on any more, so I assume the solar side of things isn't even working anymore. Definitely wont be buying a Rheem again. Very disappointed.

    Same terrible identical problem as above, just 6yrs old & water leaking out of top!

    published

    6yrs & 2mths old & my tank is leaking badly with the identical issues as review above!
    Very disappointed at the short lifespan!
    If Rheem does not act on this, I won't b replacing this or any other products in my home or business with Rheem. We have no hot water as had to turn off water supply to tank.

    Very frustrating

    published

    i had it installed 13/03/09 and the tank replaced in 2013. The electrics on the tank have failed with it continually pumping water through the panels even after the off peak has heated it up so no hot water in the morning. The tank is again rusting out again on the top. Never buy a Rheem product again

    7 years in without a problem

    published

    We replaced our electric only hot water system with a Rheem Solar Loline (Electric Boost) around 7 years ago.

    It has continually preformed well after a small fix that was due to an error made by the installer. We have always had hot water and the use of the electric boost has minimal during that time.

    The only other issue we have had, which we are experiencing now is that the base of the unit ha began to rust. This again seems to be a problem caused by the way it was installed - placed directly on (in) the ground.

    In summary we would use a Rheem again, but not the installer.

    This unit is rubbish

    published

    We have had the Rheem Loline for 5 years. Our plumber coupled it with Solar Edwards Australis 2 collectors.
    The seals between the collectors have failed twice and we now use aftermarket ones made by Ludowici as they seem more reliable.
    On a bright sunny spring day where the max temp reaches 29 degrees we still need to boost to shower a family of 4.
    We use more electricity than ever and have scheduled in Ergon to connect this dud to simply become an 'off peak' electric hot water service to try and save on our heating costs.
    I could not and will never recommend these units.

    Solar Loline (Electric Boost) 511340

    My unit has no lights showing on the solar monitor I'm not actually 100% sure the solar is working at all we usually have hot water in the morning but if people shower the water wont heat again until the next day unless we push the boost.

    You should be seeing a solid green LED to indicate the unit is working.

    Have to say that the lack of response from Rheem is disappointing to say the least. A large number of questions regarding the flashing 'attention' light. Why can't Rheem at least publish a fault finding decision tree to allow customers some hope?

    Is this fault SO complex that each and every person needs individual advice?

    There's a sensor problem causing the circulation to not work, causing the water to become cold. Anything I can do?
