Rheem Performance Platinum Water Heater

Today is August 18, 2018. One week ago today we purchased a Rheem Performance Platinum Water Heater Model number 1000034940, 40 Gallon Gas, at Home Depot in Peru, IL. We installed it with the help of a handyman. After reading reviews was skeptical but other makers had poor reviews as well. We settled on Rheem. Only one week into the install but the experience has been perfect. No leaks. No problems. Quiet operation. I keep turning the thermostat down because the water is hot, hot, hot. The unit has electronic ignition (with the pilot light) and a monitoring feature. A blinking blue light means all is good. As I mentioned before my experience is only 1 week in, but the monitor light is blinking blue all the time. We are very happy. Hope this helps anyone going through the decision making process. Good Luck. BV Peru, IL
