Nice unit for the money. Most of my home-related purchases are made at Lowe's as it's close by, the folks are friendly, and they are customer oriented. Needed a replacement for the existing water heater, so I headed out to Lowe's and found this unit which met my needs. Picked-up some items relative to the installation and installed the unit about a week later. Straightforward installation and encountered no product related issues during installation. Within a hour of installation, we were back on line with hot water for the home. If I get 5 years out of the unit I'll be satisfied - stay tuned. September 19, 2014
was easy to install not sure what to say yet.its only been 24 hours but so far its operating properly September 19, 2014
The product was very to install as a replacement. From start to finish the installation was very easy. The height was nearly the same as the original heater and by switching to replacement flex hoses and compression fittings there was no soldering that needed to be done which reduced / eliminated the possibilities of leaks.

This product is easy to install My water heater started leaking on Saturday night, I was unable to get a water heater until Sunday morning. It took about an hour to install because it wasn't as tall as the old water heater. I bought this brand because of the Whirlpool name for reliability. I know it only has a 6 year warranty but I hope to get 12-15 years use. September 17, 2014

Great product for the value My old water heater was 16 years old when it stopped working. I purchase from Lowe's at 3pm and with a little plumbing work I had it installed within three hours. Unit produces great hot water. September 15, 2014
I reviewed many units and made this unit my choice from other reviews The unit was easy to install. I have only used it one day but there was plenty of hot water by bath time which was about 4 hours after instulation. The unit was almost the same size as the one i had taken out. All fittings were easy to access and it fit in the same space with no alterations of the area. September 14, 2014
Excellent basic hot water heater I searched various reviews for hot water heaters and Whirlpool was consistently rated very high as compared to other brands. As a DIY homeowner, I found this water heater extremely easy to install. Once everything was hooked up it was just a short while before I had a good supply of hot water. I look forward to many years of reliable operation. September 10, 2014
Easy to install This is a replacement for an old heater that had begun to leak. I easily went into the old space and was easily connected to the existing plumbing and electrical service. September 10, 2014
