Question about water heaters
I need to replace a water heater and I find that a Rheem at LCR is about $100 more than a Rheem at Home Depot. I know that when it comes to John Deere mowers that the one at Home Depot is inferior to the one at a John Deere dealer. Is the same true for water heaters?
Is the one at LCR better?

If the item # is the same it’s the same unit. Be glad you saved $100

re: Question about water heaters
Just talked to my boss today about this. He’s someone who will research every aspect of quality and price. He said he’s contacted a half dozen plumbers and they all told him that there is a difference in quality when buying from Home Depot and Lowe’s. They said there built cheaper for price points. Is it true, who knows but I had heard the same from a plumber in my neighborhood.

Upvote to you just for not calling it a "hot water heater".
That alone seems to grind a few folks around here as if you scratched your fingernails down a chalkboard.

Not if the model numbers are exactly the same.

Seriously, if you’re in Baton Rouge, there’s really no need to change the water heater. Anything wrong with it other than old? The tap water is such that the tanks won’t corrode.

The old water heater is dripping from somewhere and there is no water on top of it where the input and output are. I am assuming it has a leak somewhere.
