Home Depot’s Halt on Rheem Hybrid Water Heaters
I just noticed that Home Depot has no Rheem hybrid water heaters for sale online or in store, whereas they did three weeks ago. I checked stores in the Phoenix, Dallas, and Atlanta areas, all climates where these make great sense, searching for Rheem hybrid on the HD website and drilling down through its navigation. Conn’s, a smaller chain, had a Richmond (made by Rheem) 50 gallon hybrid on closeout for $417 (reduced from $1499.99), but they were all gone, and Conn’s said they won’t be stocking any of the Richmond hybrids anymore. Oddly, though, a Google search for Rheem hybrids brings up links to Home Depot, where one seems still to be available, but I didn’t go through checkout to see whether it actually is. I was about to buy a Rheem ProTerra 50 gallon, but I’m wondering whether something is wrong with them that has caused Home Depot and others to stop carrying them. What do you think?
