How to determine the length of a rheem water heater ?


Do you mean size?... height, width, and diameter of a specific model?
Or do you mean the length of warranty coverage. You will need serial number located on label on side of tank.
Or do you mean age of water heater?

Suggest contacting Rheem.com

Drain valve plastic slow leak 81V-80D


If the drip is coming out of drain valve: Put a hose cap over end of drain valve.
If water is seeping out of cracked drain vale, then replace it.
If the leak is seeping around previously sealed threads, then tank may be rusted beyond repair.

You need to first determine if the burners light or not.

As long as the unit wasn't run with a dry tank the unit should not have been affected by continuous water running, unless it got hot enough to damage the thermocoupler which is an easy replacement. That is the part that your pilot/ignitor warms so that the gas valve will open the gas line to the burners.

I have a Rheem (Paloma) GT199XN tankless water heater. It has worked fantastic since I installed about 5 years ago. Just recently, I have have intermitten issues of the burner not firing up when we turn on...


All costs are energy.
Here's the order of things I would do.

1) Contact Rheem for name of qualified service technician.

2) Call technician who can fix your specific unit, and can educate you about maintenance, and tricks and tips. These guys learn something new each day and are good to have in your rolodex/wallet as tankless unit ages.

3) Download manual, or read manual cover to cover and review maintenance protocol to make sure you're on a schedule for de-liming and other things required for tankless to work.

4) Ask Rheem how you can become familiar with their website pages that show updates and other information that affect your specific unit.

5) Install ordinary tank-type back up that can be put online quickly in case tankless needs parts or frequent maintenance as it ages.

My rheem water heater model 81v520 is leaking water from the bottom, what could the problem be?


The tank may be corroded and you may need a new unit. Check to make sure that the water is not coming from any of the water connections that are higher up on the unit. Also check the drain plug to make sure it's secure. I don't know the age of the water heater but it may be time to replace. Most people don't know that water heaters require maintenace (draining the tank to remove sediment) from time to time.
