We can hardly say that everyone was satisfied with Rinnai V65IP, but as with all tankless water heaters, it’s hard to please everyone. In general, however, the positive reviews this model has received outweigh the negative ones by a long shot. Our team at TopTenWater.com has tested the unit individually and has been able to confirm what the reviews are saying. Most users were pleased with how this device guarantees an endless supply of hot water. Plus, they were happy that the water gets warm almost immediately after turning it on. Although the unit can certainly be heard, most would agree the noise it produces is not bothersome. The few negative reviewers mostly complained about issues related to improper installation and packaging, neither of which is Rinnai’s fault. For an in-depth summary of what the users had to say, let’s take a look at each individual review on a case-per-case basi

Overall, this product has a high rating on Amazon and most people are pleased with it. One satisfied customer recommended this is a great solution for people with hard water. On multiple accounts, the users praised the fact that the water temperature remains consistent throughout showering. They liked the energy saving aspect of this unit, noting it saves them money on propane during colder months.

One user mentioned there’s a whirring sound when you turn it on (however, it’s not too unpleasant, but it can be heard). Depending on your perspective, you may not be too pleased with having to flush the unit with vinegar, which some simply view as yearly maintenance, but to some, it is a chore. Some customers complained about the box lacking proper packaging, but this is not necessarily Rinnai’s fault. Some customers did not take kindly to the fact that the labor costs of installing the unit can be quite high and that they aren’t explicitly stated.

The users, in general, noted how energy efficient this unit is, which – as you’ve probably guessed – means lower costs. There is an LCD display where you can easily set the temperature so it suits your needs. Whenever maintenance is needed, it’s painless and easy. They praised the fact that you get immediate access to an endless supply of hot water and that the unit does not need much space.

One particular customer had an unpleasant experience with the heating capabilities of the unit, saying that even though the sink gets warm, the water barely reaches room temperature. However, this was an isolated case, and no one else mentioned a word about it, so it could also be the case of something going wrong during installation. Another user complained about the unit turning on when not in use.

The purchasers unanimously agree that the unit is space efficient and installing it results in noticeable energy savings. We have all the reason to believe that their support is fantastic as well; one purchaser somehow ordered the wrong part, picked up the phone to call Rinnai, and they were able to help him with no problems at all. Moreover, users praised the fact they were able to take long showers without depleting hot water reserves. One particular satisfied customer mentioned something about being able to use water at several locations at the same time (dishwasher, washing machine, and showers) and have immediate hot water available. Reportedly, the installation is simple and the model is super-efficient and quiet. You will not have any issues with the “shake or bake syndrome”. Also, this unit not only saves a ton of energy, but space as well.

One particular purchaser complained about the water unit turning on when not in use, but otherwise, there were absolutely no bad reviews on Build.com.
