Features & Benefits

The advanced line of 119 and 125-gallon Rheem Super Duty condensing water heaters offer breakthrough technology, providing 93% thermal efficiency. The patented heat transfer system dramatically cuts fuel costs. Models feature 500,000 Btu/h, with a maximum temperature setting of 180°F.

Faster, Less Costly Venting – All models vent with standard 4" or 6" diameter PVC plastic pipe. Super Duty unit scan be installed with Power Vent or Power Direct Vent configurations.

LCD User Interface – The new LCD user interface is standard on all Super Duty models. It enables installers and service technicians to monitor key functions and components. It includes a scrollable, operational history.

Innovative Technology – The helical-finthree stage heat exchanger is engineered to optimize heat transfer by increasing surface area, thereby increasing heat transfer and efficiency. These products are built to last.

Power or Power Direct Vent – It can be installed as a power-vented product; or as a power direct-vented product when negative air pressure is an issue or if indoor air quality is a concern.

Corrosion Protection – The Super Duty models offer magnesium anode rods to protect the tank and heat exchanger from condensation and corrosion.

Multiple Water Connections – Hot and cold water Inlets and outlets on both sides of the unit; 2" NPT high-flow connections.
