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
This product was easy to install it was very easy to install . not real heavy. so far water is at a great temp. I can do many things at once without running out of hot water. it is a nice looking water heater. it is hard to say much when you have only had it for a few days. May 22, 2015
Great Water Heater The water heater was easy to install myself and it was a great price. I have had it two weeks and it is working great. I just wanted a basic water heater to replace the basic 50 gallon water heater I had that lasted about 20 years and It fit perfectly as well. This 40 gallon water heater produces plenty of hot water for the three of us. Make sure you pickup nipple connectors because this model does not come with them. I would definitely recommend this product. May 21, 2015

no problems I found the item on line at Lowes and it was less expensive than others I found that didn't have a brand name I was familiar with. Installation was simple and it didn't take long for the water to heat up. All in all a pleasent experience. May 17, 2015
Lowes and the Installation guy was great! We absolutely love this water heater and where we bought it from. We got this from Lowe's and the sales person there was so helpful and kind. He really walked us through the process. The guy who put in our installation of the water heater was great too. He did not over charge us and had a great personality. Finally, it only took a few hours or like an hour for our hot water to start flowing like nothing had ever been changed. We are so happy and grateful that this water heater nightmare turned into a dream come true! May 16, 2015
I bought this product because I don't want to be replacing parts in the future. The contractor did an excellent job in the installation of the water heater. May 13, 2015
This product was easy to install. This product was easy to install. The locations of t&p relief valve and the drain valve made it fit in the corner better than the smaller old one. I am very pleased with my purchase. May 11, 2015
