"The Rheem Fury: Scary Name, Great Water Heater."
We have owned our present water heater for a little over half a year. We purchased the Fury last September when our old Kenmore (that had been heating the house water for an unbelievable 35 years) developed a noticeable gas leak. Our plumber installed the Fury quite easily. It is a very compact unit that even our cramped utility room can accommodate. Thusfar, I have no grievances about the Fury whatsoever. It is whisper quiet, and so well insulated that only a little heat escapes. The pilot is inaccessibly shielded from everyday tampering, and unlike my 70s water heater, none of it is made of sheet glass. The Fury uses a respectably small amount of gas to heat 50 gallons of water for our home, and although it is not Energy Star certified, it uses less fuel then comparable water heaters which are. I would solidly recommend this water heater to friends, with the caveat that Rheems are hard for mere mortals to come by (the company sells primarily to craftsmen and companies). Every plumber I know swears by Rheem products, and so far I have no reason to doubt them.

"Rheems are worth it!"
This tankless hot water heater is absolutely amazing. It offers great on-demand hot water and it never runs out. Its rather efficient too. It was rather expensive but I think it's worth every cent. Knowing that you always have hot water and knowing that the hot water you have hasn't been sitting in a tank for a long time. Its worth the up front cost and it will save you in the long run.

"On-demand is the way to go"
Whether you like being "Green" or just have teenagers who use up all the hot water, the on-demand water heaters are the way to go. I have the Rheem Eco-Sense and I love it. It is Earth conscious because it is tankless -- there is no need to constantly warm water that is not being used. And, because it heats water as you need it, there are no cold showers when you're the last one in the bathroom in the morning. I am not particularly handy, so I did not opt for the self-installation. However, my plumber that installed it last year assured me that I probably could have done it myself. In addition to the satisfaction on the user end, I like having the extra space in my utility room. There is no need to find room for a giant tank water heater. Go green, love your extra space , and love your long hot showers. You won't be disappointed.

Rheem is the best water heater on the market. These new tankless water heaters that are out. If you install them in a new house make sure all the hot water lines are insulated. If you are putting them in a older house same thing. If you do not insulate the hot water lines they are not going to be efficient as they say.

"Rheem Glas Fury"
We have had two of these units for 16 years and many of my neighbors have had to replace theirs. However ours are are still okay. I think we will need to replce them soon. I will want something more energy efficient when we replce them.

"My rheem electirc water heater"
My water heater is average. 40 gallon tank probably to small for a family of 5. Last one I had did not last as long as it should, just bought same kind due to that was what small town store carried. Seems to use to much power to run.

"My brand, Rheem, isn't on the list"
This is the second Rheem water heater I've owned. The first one lasted 26 years, so replacing it with the same brand made sense. The unit is connected to an on/off switch so I control when it heats to conserve energy. While the recovery time is fairly fast, it is a little noisy while heating the water. That does have an advantage, though, because it's easy to tell when the water has reached its maximum temperature.
