So just had my third drain assembly fail on rheem professional series electric 40 gallon water heaters ...the code here just outlawed top feed tanks. The new grey or bleu rheem tanks suck, I swithched from john wood to rheem because they had brass drains and bottom feed adaptor , thinking brass is always better then plastic. Wrong all three failures are a small hairline crack along the casting right whre your mip or nipple threads into. No I did not over tighten them not all three , all have been installed in the last two months. Anyways just warning anyone on here that installs those tanks I can not be the only person having this issue. But I'm getting pissed off . The good news Bradford white will be getting quite a few more sales this year.
No announcement yet.
