Rheem does water softeners now. Who knew?

Rheem® is known the world over for water heaters, and now, we’re becoming known for water softeners as well. Introducing Rheem® PREFERRED Series Water Softeners. They feature Rheem Learning Technology, meaning the softener will learn water-usage patterns to optimize salt and water consumption and provide on-demand soft water for the home. And given that using a water softener can save up to 24% in water-heating costs per year—not to mention that roughly 85% of people in North America live in hard water areas—it’s a natural fit for Rheem and our partners.

Why Rheem Water Softeners?

Conserve Salt
Uses up to 40% less salt than traditional water softeners1

Conserve Water
Cycles less and uses less than $10 of water per year2

Save on Electricity
Uses less than $5 per year in electricity costs2

With Parts Xpress, they don’t have to. When ordering parts for warranty repairs, you can get most common parts in as little as two hours3—without the trip to your distributor (or waiting for a part to be overnighted). You get happier customers and more repairs done on time.

Water Heater Training, by
Plumbers for Plumbers

Rheem is the only water heater manufacturer with a team of trainers who are all Master Plumbers who have also operated their own plumbing business. With over 300 years of combined plumbing experience among them, our Master Plumbers not only know Rheem and Ruud products inside and out, but they also “speak plumber” and understand the specific challenges presented by various product applications.

As part of the Plumber to Plumber, or “P2P” initiative, Rheem Master Plumbers host weekly online, instructor-led training sessions to plumbers and installers to increase their knowledge and proficiency. Training will cover hybrid heat pump water heaters, gas tankless water heaters and Rheem’s specialty water heating products. Regardless of the subject, every class is taught by a master plumber.

In addition to our weekly sessions, we also offer customized training on specific topics you request, or we can set up a time that works better for you and your team.

Virtual Help, Real Solutions

Help Lightning uses merged reality to create a real-time Virtual Interactive Presence. This allows you to visually interact, assist with issues and resolve problems as though you are working side-by-side with a Rheem Tech Support representative.

Merged reality blends together two real-time environments allowing you to interact in a virtual environment with our technical support team. It’s like having our technical analyst on site with you. After calling into Tech Service, we send a link to your smart phone. You simply tap the link, and we can see and share information through the virtual environment.

  • Robust Features – Telestrate, freeze images, use hand gestures, share pictures and even add real objects into the merged reality environment

Get Step-by-Step Diagnostic Help

The FixIt applet on the Rheem Contractor App is a decision-making platform that allows plumbers to use the same diagnostic/troubleshooting process that our Technical Service Analysts use. To help diagnose issues, FixIt will:

1 Ask what type of product (Gas, Electric, Hybrid, etc.)
2 Ask what the issue is (no hot water, leaking, making noise, etc.)
3 Identify what the error codes mean (for products that use error codes)
4 Go step by step to help you correctly diagnose the problem
5 Provide suggestions to resolve the issue
Need help diagnosing an issue? Find the applet in the Contractor App today.
