Beam in Rheem® Tech Services while you’re working on a water heater with our new merged reality virtual environment. Sounds sci-fi, and it kind of is, but it’s simple to use.

We know how it is. You are busy. You don’t have time to watch an hour-long video to answer one little question. You know what you’re doing and don’t need all the other information that you already know.

That is where our new YouTube channel comes in. Now, we’re not creating 15-second videos because that isn’t enough time to explain something fully. However, we try to keep our videos as short as possible and focused.

I grew up in Northern Kentucky and when you think of Kentucky, what is the first thing you think of? Horses! Yes, my family raised and showed quarter horses. I was riding horses before I could even walk. Growing up on a horse farm, we didn’t call in tradesmen; we just learned to do the work ourselves – electrical, mechanical, carpentry, plumbing, machinery, all of it!

As a young adult, I joined the U.S.

What a year! Despite the challenges that 2020 brought, plumbers were still able to get the training they needed. We welcomed over 19,000 attendees whether they participated in in-person training or online training once we had to close our Innovation Learning Centers due to COVID. If you were one of the many plumbers that attended – THANK YOU! We are looking forward to having thousands more this year.
