Easy installation process

Installation is quite easy with the use of the Rheem service kit which has a port for the pressure valve. The good thing is that a beginner can easily get the heater mounted via studying the simplified manufacture’s manual and a service kit.

The cons

One major flaw that Rheem RTG 64 has is that it does not come with the necessary appliances that are needed for installation. In order to get your Rheem running and supplying hot water you need to get certain appliances such as: a service kit, 3/5 inches horizontal termination (vent) kit, 3’’by 5’’ concentric b- vents and vent cap, water valves, etc. Although Rheem indicates that these are included with the model, the reality is that this has been a long drawn battle with rheem as these tools are not included in the package, thereby resulting in additional expense.

Furthermore, there is the issue of cold water surprise which is the case with all tankless water heaters. It can be an irritant, especially in winter times when you need hot water for a quick hand wash at the sink.

Summary

Going by the comment from users of the model and the over 90% five star rating it has receive so far, one can safely conclude that Rheem RTG -64 is indeed a high performance system, despite its shortfalls. What is in its favour is: affordability, low Nox emission and ability to supply water to large-mid household with fluctuation.Therefore it is highly recommended to large sized family with two full bathrooms looking for a tankless water heater that is pro-environment.
