Good product for the value The new Whirlpool water heater was easy to install, heated the water very fast, but seems to have less pressure than my previous water heater. Overall, a good product for the money. July 27, 2014
2nd we have purchased The old water heater lasted as long as the warranted time. It began to leak and we had to replace it. We had no other problems. Installation went well, the only issue was I had to replace a shut-off valve (gate type) which had failed. I only use ball type valves now. July 27, 2014
Good water heater for the price. Bought this water heater online, and installed myself in 3 hours, installation and registration instructions all were great! July 26, 2014
Works as advertised Relatively easy to install, except - not knowing the plastic gizmo was in the bottom made it more difficult to put in place. The unit just rotated on the cardboard - had to lift it up to get the cardboard bottom out. July 26, 2014
Lots of hot water Even though we have only had this installed 2 days, we have noticed we have plenty of hot water. Two showers this morning(one EXTREMELY long) and two loads of clothes and there is still hot water! This is important in our household with three adults and one teenager living here. July 25, 2014
The product is compact and saves space When the plumber opened the box of the new water heater, it was dented in several places. He called the store and got a different one. He had no problems installing the water heater. It was simple and easy to do. I had hot water in 2 hours. Not sure of the savings yet since it was just installed. I am also a Whirlpool fan. Have replaced a couple of other appliances and replaced them with Whirlpool products. July 24, 2014
Sweet No Problems in the installation, simple, clean and no problems so far. July 23, 2014
The unit is simple in design. The unit was easy to install and easy to make adjustments on. July 23, 2014
Straight forward installation Using a compression fitting installation water line kit, this was a straight forward installation, with no surprises. I would prefer a nine or twelve year warrantied model in this basic design. July 23, 2014
