Rheem 81VP10S Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job for me I installed this heater as a booster in the hot water line to my master bath. Normally a small tank like this would be insufficient for a shower and indeed it's water has started to cool in about 5 minutes, but by then the hot water from the main tank has made it through the line and I can finish my shower in comfort. Prior to adding this unit I had to run the recirc system in order to have hot water in the master bath without an overly long wait which entails constant heat loss and expense. Based on my experience with a similar hot water heater I figure this unit costs 20-25 cents a day to run. It saves me money.

  • What size circuit breaker is needed for the 10 gallon electric water heater?


    The breaker is determined by the voltage. In this case the unit in question is 120V and the total wattage is 2000w. This unit will put about 16.5amps so a 20amp circuit breaker should be fine.
