Replacement NOT exact This water heater is the replacement for the water heater I had removed. The model numbers are the same except for the beginning E1 is now an E2. The old water heater fit into the closet space pretty snuggly but removal did not require removal of the closet door OR door frame. Installation required door removal and door stop on one side had to be removed. In an all in one door frame that turned out to be a fiasco. Should have warned us that the new one was not the same dimensions as the old. August 29, 2014
This product was easy to install The product was easy to install. The instructions were too generic and not product specific. The instructions could have been on one page instead of a booklet covering all types of water heaters. It took too long to read through all of the different features and options. August 25, 2014
Easy install Easy to read instructions, all piping lined up, electric wiring was in the same area on the new tank. August 25, 2014

Easy to install The cost and convenient store location. Installation was a snap. August 21, 2014
so far so good--no problems installed today had hot water in approx 30 to 40 min. everything appears to be working normally August 15, 2014
good sturdy and easy install - would have been better/easier if smaller this is very large and i was sad i could not have/find one smaller and less bulky. 38 gallons is much more then is needed for a single person place and it seems wasteful. I also think there should be smaller ones made for smaller homes. it was difficult to bring down into the basement because of its width and problems with the eventual location not being where i had originally wanted it. overall the installation of attachment and piping and flexhoses was easy and it is a sturdy water tank. please make smaller water tanks for both electric and gas. i had no choice because there a no small gas water tanks. thank you August 13, 2014

Overall good choice Best choice for my application and need. Easy of installation. July 21, 2014
