Product Features

  • PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating - The Rheem gas heater has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solvent-borne and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service
  • Fuel-Efficient - Energy-smart Rheem heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings. They meet or exceed all federal and state standards
  • Limited Warranty - 1 Year
  • Wind-Resistant Design - No need for fans to combat drafting problems under normal conditions. This heater is designed to draft naturally in outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance regardless of falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc
  • Polymer Headers - Prevent rust stains from harming your pool or spa’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure
  • All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger - The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single piece of extRuudd copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer to be attained and maintained. Rheem also uses thick stainless steel tube sheets for robust construction and rust free operation
  • Controls - The 156 is available standard with Rheem’s propriety AFT digital control. This control handles all the safety functions of the heater as well as the electronic ignition and flame supervision. State of the art diagnostic reporting and fault recording. This is the same control we use in our bigger gas pool heaters. Only the best will do for the model 156. The electronic ignition system requires external power (120 VAC or 240 VAC) and generates a pilot only when there is a call for heat. Units come with a 3 foot, 3 prong power cord.
  • 2 Inch Water Connections - Supplied with every Rheem 156 heater is a set of 2 Inch flange connections to make your installation secure and effortless
  • Automatic Bypass - The Rheem 156 comes standard with a built in water bypass so it can handle different GPM’s without having to adjust your flow rates manually. The bypass also helps keep a constant engineered flow through the tubes to help reduce condensation caused by cold water
  • Burner Tray - Every burner tray is built to last, from the stainless steel burner deck to the aluminized metals used in the heat sensitive areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of the tray for servicing
  • Fire Tile - A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your heater running efficiently while keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age material the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowing it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks
