46 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2F50LD045V
Length of use
Water heater has been good overall. Just one day it wasn't producing enough hot water. I figured it was the heating element. So before I look at the unit I went to Lowes to purchase the heating element's and gaskets. When I returned home and took the covers off I notice some rusting and moisture around covers. The top element looked fine but when I got to bottom element. It was total rusted up and corrosion around bottom element. Was going to remove element and clean and install new. But after further inspection the corrosion was just to severe to remove. So replacement was the decision. The problem is this unit which is what I need is not readily available and had to order. So I have to wait till 12/04/14 for it to arrive. Yes I could replace with smaller unit but I have a large family and this unit is the only one that will work for us.

Couldn't ask for more!
We were faced with an unplanned purchase of a new water heater due to the 9 yr old, 38 gallon unit beginning to leak on a Saturday morning! Thankfully with the help of a Lowes store associate this special "low boy" 50 gallon model was found in a distant Atlanta suburban store. No special order required! YAY!
Our install is unique; as the water heater shares a small closet with the air handler for the a/c. It was great to find this larger capacity unit that fit perfectly into this shared space without any major plumbing modifications. We appreciate the extra capacity and the efficiency. The installation guide is very well illustrated & written. Therefore we were able to acquire all the additional parts required for the plumber to install on very short notice. This was immensely helpful.

PRODUCT IS GREAT
I PURCHASED THIS WATER HEATER THE DAY AFTER MY 10 YEAR OLD HEATER WAS LAID TO REST. AND IT WORKS GREAT. IT WAS EASY TO INSTALL. AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT .

This product is a whirlpool.....what more can I say!
Have never had a problem with whirlpool products. The only thing I would have liked the drain valve to be brass instead of plastic.

I have no opinion at this time.
I just put it in 1hr ago. I was disappointed it didn't come with the
connections to attach hot & cold water to the tank. I had to drive
back to Loews and buy them.

This product provides enough hot water for my family.
The first Whirlpool water heater we bought and had installed was defective. The plumber took it out and bought a second one. We lost $100 as a result of having a defective one the first time. This was the only size Lowe's had that would fit our crawl space.

I will be very pleased if this water heater lasts me for seventeen years like the last one did.

We will see
Installation was fairly easy. Water gets cooler after 4 or 5 minutes in shower-may have bad lower thermostat.
