But when I called in the next day no one had any clue what I was talking about and sent me an email but they started a new case. First please understand what part of our country they live in and the cost of material, paid for helper who my be doing the work under the master plumbers lic. They need confirmation from Rheem the unit can be returned. There goes our summer savings. An electric water heater is equipped with screw-type immersion elements and an over-temperature protector with automatic shutoff.
If I'm paying for the tank and parts, I'm going to charge 10%. Fees including Establishment Fee, Monthly Account Keeping fees and Payment Processing fees charges, terms, conditions and lending criteria apply. And trying to keep cost low and get hot water for the customer was a challenge but it was done at the end of the day and they had hot water. Now five days without hot water. I bought the replacement heater from the local Menards store. This is the worst hot water heating we have ever experienced.
I am very unhappy with the customer service since pretty much nothing has been done to get this fixed fast enough done. I called the first person in the list. I understand about costs and I am just as conwecrned aboutb saving a buck but sometimes other aspects of the job have to be considered and playing with gas lines is not the toys for unlicensed and just plain handy men or woman. My water heater burned up and it was a part of a warranty claim. I am about ready to rip out an almost new water heater and replace with a different brand. Most of the people who own and run these companies aren't getting filthy rich. Does not apply to previous purchases.
You need a flat rate not by the hour. My doctor doesn't even charge that much. So that's what I will be looking for now. Meaning I would have to pay upfront and then invoice Rheem. I have had 2 neighbors prior to our hot water service breaking down, and another today who have also had their hot water unit go! The whole thing took about an hour and a half. Also many inept people never heard of a hot water loop when installing a hot water tank or even for a tank less coil to prevent stratification of hot water molecule's entering the domestic cold water line which can cause severe illness for the residents A little bit of self taught knowledge is very dangerous as do it yourself brain surgery. Call the manufacturers of the type or brand that you are interested goesThey can all point you in the direction of the true professionals, the companies they call when they need work done or problems taken care of.
I drained the old water heater before he got there. I don't dare try to haul it back to the store for fear that it would be damaged on the way and then I'd have an even bigger drama on my hands. I wish I never bought this hot water heater and I hope others see my review so they can be saved the heartache, tears and stress that I've been going through. Monkey see monkey do in plumbing ,gas fitting has taken many life's even in this day and age This is why I refuse work on my vans or cars or even electric as I feel it is only right to respect another persons profession. The Rheem range is extensive, with Rheem producing hot water heaters that are designed and built in Australia since 1939. Pricing ranges depending on access, materials, warranty and capacity. So when you're buying a hot water heater, part of the price needs to reflect all those other costs too.
The item pictured is the actual item you will be receiving. You'll also find the water heater parts you need to maintain tank and tankless systems. They justify just like he responded. Here is my experience: 1. When people complain about the price, they really should stop for a minute and ask themselves whether or not they're factoring in all of the many other costs that go into running a company. Plumber has no clue how to debug this as the unit is completely closed, no way to see if even pilot light is on.
The reasons a lot of plumbers don't charge hourly rates anymore; but charge by the job task, is that they don't charge the customer for driving around to get the parts and materials needed for the job. Like even on holidays, oh or even on christmas day. The last one I had lasted only 4 yrs. You can also buy a six pack of soda at the grocery store cheaper than you can buy a bottle at the gas station. I no longer work for the company because I have a conscience. I will never buy their junk again.
The new unit replaced traditional tank type heater which I removed and hauled away. Technical assistance sent two nipples and contracted a plumber to replace. Maybe instead of picking on the grunt tradesman, you should be picketing the local schools and cutting some costs there, or demanding the retirements of the government employees be cut to a fair amount instead of worrying about your neighborhood tradesman. The plumbing company told us they weren't notified. The first was undersized and quit working. I asked to speak with a manager.
Then my property manager cleaned the blower and it worked again for 15 months. I am an honest guy and people don't deserve to be ripped off with all kinds of bogus additional fees. Now when does the business actually make any money? Don't forget to turn off the breaker first. By now 5 days have gone by with tech support, Fed Ex shipment, etc. After installation it didn't heat water in 24 Hrs. Are you ready to hire a qualified pro? The water heater tank leaked and had to be replaced when it was only 6 years and 3 months old.
