"Great Water Heater!"
My Rheem RTE-13 Electric Tankless water heater (13 kW) is the best water heater that I have ever had. I recently bought a fixer upper home and as a result knew I would need to buy a bunch of new appliances and the like. I bought ones that were cost friendly but also were rated highly for quality. With the Rheem, I was a little concerned that the quality wasn't going to be as good as the reviews were saying because the price was just so unbelievably good. Well, I did find out that the reviews were accurate and the equipment worked as advertised. I am absolutely thrilled with the performance, quality, study construction and low price. There is nothing I can think of about this water heater that is a con or bad characteristic. I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend this unit to others looks for quality at a low price!

"Rheem Tankless Water Heater"
I was a little skeptical when I first purchased this water heater a little over six months ago. I did not really get the idea and had never really heard of a tankless water heater. The installation was rather quick and easy. Especially considering the size of this water heater. There are multiple things that I love about this product. It is very energy efficient. There has been a noticeable decrease in my electricity bill since purchasing this product. Another thing that I love is that I never have cold water. With past water heaters, if two people took a shower at the same time only one of those people would get warm water. This product makes it possible for two people to get hot water while taking a shower. I really have nothing negative to say about this product. There has been no need to replace or repair this product. I would definitely buy this same brand again and would definitely recommend to friends or family.

"Satisfactory Experience with my Rheem RTE 13"
I am extremely pleased with my Rheem RTE 13. I have owned it for a year and a half and it has functioned better than any other water heater I've owned. It is able to provide plenty of power for several hours at a time, allowing me to simultaneously do laundry and dishes, even if someone else is using hot water in a shower or bath. I never have problems anymore with running out of hot water before I'm done with it. The water heater has functioned seamlessly the entire time I've owned it. It never has had any issues with overheating or needing repairs. It is holding out physically very well with no signs of wear or rust or anything like that. I feel confident that it will last me many more years in my home and I would highly recommend Rheem water heaters to any new homeowner or renter.

"A Solid, Dependable Heater"
I've owned this heater for about 4 months. It was very easy to install and the cost was about what I was hoping to spend. I was satisfied with the transaction. I don't like the fluctuation in temperature. I've noticed that the hot water doesn't stay too hot for very long. It's not the greatest heater in the world, but for the cost, I think it does what it is expected too. I've never had to replace or repair this unit. I would try this brand again, but I would buy a better unit. You get what you pay for. I think this unit is good at what it does for the money that it cost, but if I was going to recommend it to a friend, I would suggest they spend more money and get a product that they will be impressed with. This particular brand seems to work fine, but this model needs more power.
