I had a new house built and had a Rheem Hybrid installed. It has spit air since the first day. I bleed it per the instructions to no avail. It is on a well with an aerator which means I have a pump to pump water into a large aerator and one to pump it out of the aerator to the house. So, the house pump is not drawing directly from the well but a large tank beside the pump.

I contacted Rheem with the serial number and model and explained all this to them but have never even acknowledged my request. So much for customer service.

I have read about the anode rod, expansion tanks, and relief valves. I suspect the anode rod but have no idea what to do about it. The heater is now 3 months old and has done it since day one.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Search on "air vent" here. There is a string just a little ways down dealing with this in relation to a powered anode. Your installation should be simpler to deal with than theirs. You just need to do the first thing that Larry recommended.

Just an update and thanks for the input. Sure helped me a lot. On occasion I still get a little air spurts but no where near what I was getting. Had absolutely none for about two weeks. I just started getting a little lately. Thanks again.

Just so you know: I just deleted the post just before you, which was a vehicle for prohibited advertising.

First question is were they the ones who installed it for you? As this devices have a warranty only if Rheem technicians installed it for you. Tankless water heaters can be a very big problem if not properly installed.

Mine is not a tankless. It is a hybrid. I do have a tankless also with no air problems with it.
