seems the manufacturer of the heater (Rheem) should be asked too- send them the pix and ask. both inlet and outlet look defective
Its not their fault of course but I bet they know whats wrong. Maybe suspect Junk chinesium metal?

a few years ago I bought a box of Hot dip galvanized nails from Lowes they were all rusted inside the box. their Jax or miami distributor told me we will send you another box free. I said thanks but ......

I have had good luck with ace hardware loose galv nails by the pound

whats my point? the stores dont test any thing- they buy on price only
