Rheem Australia announces the launch of a brand new range of electric hot water systems featuring fresh aesthetics, extended life and a 10-year cylinder warranty.

Rheem’s new-look electric water heaters have been designed with a range of new features that extend their life, while the 10-year cylinder warranty is the longest electric water heater warranty on the Australian market.

Ben Murphy, Rheem’s Group Product Manager – Electric explains that the new electric water heaters available in 250L, 315L and 400L capacities, have undergone substantial re-engineering and redesign to provide more than 10 years of operation.

New features in Rheem’s electric hot water systems include a redesigned cylinder dome top with a stronger, more robust design; larger sacrificial anodes (increased from 21mm to 27mm) to support the new electric range, providing physically more material to help protect and prolong the life of the cylinder; and commercial grade, proprietary blend Class Y enamel stronger and more durable than domestic grade Class X enamels, offering greater resistance to high temperatures, and extending the life of the heater.

Aesthetic modifications made to the new Rheem electric water heaters include replacing the name band with a Rheem badge and technical label, delivering a cleaner new appearance; and embossed pipe-seals for the relief valve, inlet and outlet identifying the fitting type more clearly.

The 250L to 400L models also receive enhanced packaging livery, clearly displaying that the range has a 10-year cylinder warranty, is Australian made and has dual handed fittings. QR codes are also provided for plumbers and consumers to refer back to dedicated product landing pages on the Rheem website.

Rheem’s 250L, 315L and 400L electric water heaters are made in Australia at Rheem’s Rydalmere NSW manufacturing facility, providing the assurance of excellent product quality. Ben adds that all Rheem products are made in wholly owned and operated Rheem manufacturing facilities, and are backed by a 50-strong local R&D team as well as a national sales, service and support network.
