38 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2F40LD045V
Good so far!
Took about an hour to install in my basement. Standard connections. Had to purchase nipples separately they were not in the unit. The brand new Rich---d unit it just replaced had nipples installed but also came with a factory LEAK in the tank! Due to limited space in my basement (it's a 45 inch high basement/crawl) I had to purchase this low profile tank and we will see how it performs over time. So far I have hot water and all seems well. Thanks Whirlpool for testing this tank and making sure it was leak free from the factory. Much appreciated!!!! Jim...

Drain is too low.
The drain is so low that the heater won't fit into a pan worth a hoot. It crushes the edge of the pan. I won't install a heater without a pan and pan drain so this was a real pain. The case needs to be a little longer at the bottom then the drain can be in the same location on the tank but will exit the case higher up so a heater pan can be used. The other design features were OK. The other thing that was troublesome is the relief was already tightened and I needed it turned another direction. Since I did not want to break the seal or the relief (which usually negates the warranty) I was forced to buy a bunch of extra fittings to route the relief line to my existing vent line.

I like this lowboy, first one I have used.
This is the first time every having a lowboy hot water heat. It was easy to install. When installing have all your tools ready and be finish in about 30 minutes. I had all the air out of the lines and hot water within the hour.

Easy to install and great features
This is a great unit for 2-3 people. It was very easy to install. The manual is very good and easy to understand the instructions.

whirlpool water heater
I needed a water heater replaced quick as the current one developed a leak. I looked online at the different ones offered by the local hardware stores and saw the whirlpool, bought it and installed it. So far the unit is working perfectly. It has a good design. I would have preferred that the pressure relief valve had been located on top instead of the front as that location takes away from the "looks" of the unit but I can live with that.

So far I am very pleased with my new water heater. I have not had so much hot water in a long time! I haven't had it long enough to comment on my energy bill or the reliability.

Product was easy to install
I am not sure if it is the energy saving features of this model or something else, but we do seem to run out of hot water much quicker with this unit. But it was easy to install...

easy to install
Everything was great. Need to include the fittings for the installation. The ones available from Lowes were poor quality as were the ones from Home depot. I will need to replace these on a schedule so that they will not damage the heater.
