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
good heater for the price! I have all whirlpool appliances in my home and like the quality and user friendly design and most of all the low price$ Great stuff for the money! July 19, 2014
excellent product This water heater was very easy to install, a friend and I did it in less than an hour. Once full of water and power turned on we had hot water in 15 minutes. It is quieter than the old one, actually it makes no noise at all. Recovery is so good the water never drops in temperature even when filling the large garden tub in our master bath. July 18, 2014
Good water heater The water heater in our house started to leak. It was a whirlpool 6 year 40 gallon tank. According to previous owner's receipt, it lasted 8 years. So I took a gamble on getting the same brand. Easy to install because it was in my garage. Biggest pain was draining the old one. Took a long time even after opening the pipes up top. Make sure you have plumber's putty and additional connections before you start or you will need to go to Lowe's four times like I did! Good product! July 18, 2014
This product has great features to save us on utility bills It was very easy to install... I just had to replumb my water lines and my pop off valve drain line.. Other than all of that it was a very easy installation. July 17, 2014

Great Great Water Heater so far. I had hot water 20min after we finished installing. July 12, 2014
Great Product, Great Price, Easy Installation. This product was great. It was relatively cheap, and I was able to move it by myself. Installation took me about 15 minutes, even with a toddler by my side. It's lowered my energy bill, very easy to install. I would recommend this particular product to anyone. July 12, 2014
