Connects the water heater to the venting system. It aids in assisting in the updraft movement of the combustion gasses
Plastic Line Nipples/ Heat Traps
Thermoplastic lined nipples impede galvanic corrosion. “Heat trap” nipples also contain a check valve to reduce heat loss between hot water in the tank and cold water pipes.
Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve
Commonly referred to as the “T&P” valve. This safety device opens to allow water to escape if the tank pressure or temperature becomes excessive.
Exclusive Rheemglas® Porcelain Enamel Tank Lining
Engineered for durability and long tank life.
Cold Water Inlet and Dip Tube
The connection point for incoming cold water. The inlet connects directly to a dip tube which directs the incoming water to the bottom of the tank.
the patented R-tech anode rod protects tank against premature corrosion.
Maintains desired temperature of the water by regulating the flow of fuel to the burner.
Slows air movement through the flue. By keeping the combustion gases in the flue longer, more heat is transferred to the water in the tank.
Enhanced-Flow Brass Drain Valve
Allows the tank to be emptied should service be required.
EverKleen™ Self Cleaning System
