Default Rinnai sold at Lowes

It's official Rinnai has inked a deal with big box home improvement store Lowes to market and sell the Rinnai product under a new retail label called Jaccuzzi to homeowners. Product is showing up on the shelves near you.

How do you feel about that Rinnai users?

That might be short lived..... once their customers start calling rinnai tech support for info of how to install or other problems .... they might back out

What can I say? I hate it. Our trade is being assaulted on different fronts.

If this is true, I 100% hate it. That was one of the big things with Rinnai; that they weren't sold to the general public. I wonder how much cheaper they're going to be.

Now after I give a quote to install a Rinnai unit, the customer will say, "Loew's said they'd install it for (_____)."

I doubt it Rinnai Japan wants those unit sales numbers to grow.

Rinnai USA president is a former Jaccuzzi CEO

Well, according to that the store local to me doesn't have any. That's some good news, right?

I only posted because I was there today buying salt and batteries. Saw them on the end cap for sale called my buddy a rep for them and he confirmed its true.
They are supposed to be replacing the Rheem and Bosch units in store nationwide.
