Rheem Hot Water Systems Features

Rheem Reliability

Rheem ‘491/492’ series electric water heaters are built to last. The cylinder dome top has been redesigned to make it even stronger, making it better able to withstand the effects of high temperature and pressure.

Sacrificial Anode

A thicker 27mm diameter (up from 21mm diameter) black cap anode is fitted as standard to Rheem 491/492 series electric heater water heaters. This provides more physical material to help protect the cylinder for longer. Specialty blue cap anode models also feature a thicker 21mm diameter anode (up from 17mm diameter).

Commercial Grade Enamel

A commercial grade proprietary blend Class Y enamel provides the cylinder with a tough, durable coating. It is both stronger and more durable than domestic grade Class X enamels, and being less soluble, will prolong the life of the water heater.

Locally Manufactured

Rheem 250ltr – 400ltr are made right here in Australia. Rheem is a committed Australian manufacturer, with a 50 strong team of local R&D engineers dedicated to providing the best products and know-how gained from 75 years of local manufacturing experience.
