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
we had hot water in 10 minutes all though I had the water heater professionally installed I have installed water heaters in the past and this heater is very easy to install your self if you so choose to October 26, 2014
This product offers excellent value for the cost This product offers excellent value for the cost and is reliable because the manufacturer offers a 6 year warranty to back up their brand. Highly recommend this water heater because it cost about $250.00 and is good value for the cost. October 25, 2014
easy to install ease of installation and the cost of unit. The need to review a new product almost made me wish I had gone with American. This seems to be a little silly. October 25, 2014

Hot water heater installed, replaced under warranty The unit I had was under warranty, started leaking around bottom. Was installed in 2009. Lowe's honored warranty, thru here. So we stayed with same type. Its fine. Hired professional to do work. I don't do things around the house. October 20, 2014
Replaced a 11 yr old unit with this one. Water inlet and outlet lined up great, old top mounted pressure relief valve changed to side mounted. Other than the normal installation issues of height adjustments to existing inlet and outlet CPVC plumbing had no issues other than stopping leaks when lines were connected and pressurized. Did need to reroute the plumbing for the pressure relief line as the old was top mounted, the new side mounted. Unit installed in a rental house and no feedback yet on how well it heats the water. A little lower rating on design due to change of pressure relief valve location from prior unit. October 20, 2014
nice my water heating is good looking and it fit perfect in my closet October 17, 2014
Easy to install Just installed this water heater today. Water connections were easy to get to and easy to connect. The electrical connection is a whole other story. The cover for the electric does not allow for your wire to be connected and put in the top of water heater. October 16, 2014
