50 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E1F50RD045V
simple good price
Good quality water heater for the price. Installed easy. The drain on the tank is cheap and is not easy to access if draining is needed for maintenance but that is typical of all water heaters. Overall I like it. This was a warranty replacement which surprised me when the tank started leaking after only 4.5 years. Service got it replaced though without a hitch, just my hassle to install again. Make sure your water softener is set for your area if you have one.

Easy installation and startup. Nice deisign for easy maintenance.
Very easy to install and put in operation. Easy access to the heating elements and thermostats. Easy temperature adjustment. It's nice that the water inlet and outlet connections, and pressure relief valve is all installed at the factory.

It is great. My family can take hot showers without waiting. I have 3 children who all play soccer and I needed a great heater

Looks like the best value for my needs at this time.
Looks like the best value for my needs at this time, hope it will last as long as my last one, 12 years and then a low voltage problem due to power co outage during t-storm last week. It was still heating water but because the main breaker had tripped I checked the closet and found where a little water had been leaking into drain pan, power outage also caused problem with Sewer system's breakers but no damage, just replaced water heater because of age and the small leak from either tank or pop off valve. Very good value best price from LOWES checked several other suppliers, it was on sale at LOWES today.

Great all around value and price
This is a great heater for the money and with the Whirlpool name stamped on the jacket, well you cant beat that. I found it very easy and pleasurable to install. Its very light weight and the connections and electrical couldn't be easier. I am the son of a plumber and I have not installed one in decades. From out of the box , running the wire from the electrical panel and filling it with water , tops 2 hours. I am not a certified electrician or a licensed plumber, but if you have some basic tools and a little common sense, you will have hot water in no time!

have to get use to low hot water pressure
I believe the heat traps installed in the new hot water heater reduces the water flow. Old water heater had better water

Very Easy Installation
This water heater was a quick easy install for my first water heater as a homeowner. All connections were identical to the previous Whirlpool Water Heater, set the thermostats, and hot water was available shortly thereafter.
