This product is easy to install and works great! My last water heater was the same Whirpool water heater but it started spilling water every where on the basement floor one month after moving into my new home. The previous owners neglected to care for it or soften the water going through it. The water heater clogged up with lime and half of the heating element died. Even though the previous water heater was a whirpool that spilled water every where......it was 12 years old. However, this new water heater was easy to install and began to heat the water in no time! I would totally recommend this product. If cared for correctly this product has potential to last a long time. November 16, 2012
Easy Installation Took less than an hour to install. Put in dinner time, heated up by next morning. July 25, 2014
Good if you have soft water This is a replacement for a unit we had for 3 yrs. Whirlpool is excellent when it comes to handling their warranty and we have no complaint there. This water heater functions very well and never gave us a problem up until the day ours failed. We are starting to think it could be the water, so are taking measures to correct that. If you do not have very hard water, it is probably in the "excellent" category. Our rating is based on our personal experience. Never was without hot water, always had a quick recovery, was able to run more than one usage at the same time without any problems at all. Functionally is better than any we had before. It just started leaking long before its time. That was the only problem we had. July 25, 2014

very easy to install just love this product.easy to install with instructions July 24, 2014
A snap to install even in a small space. Much easier to install than the water heater that came in the house when it was built.Connectors were on the top rather than top and bottom but an easy fix with pvc, couplings and pvc glue. July 23, 2014
Well boxed for transportation. All connections are straightforward. Easy installation for a professional or reasonably knowledgeable handy person. July 23, 2014
works good our old water heater was a 45gal low boy, and we couldn't find one to replace it, so we purchased this one and had to do some modifications. July 20, 2014
This product is perfect size. This water heater is just the right size for a family of 3 adults. This product was a replacement for another whirlpool water heater that we had for 10 years. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is in the market for a water heater. July 20, 2014
Easy Access Took less than 1 hour! We had hot water 3 hours later. It is also an attractive unit. July 20, 2014
