46 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2F50LD045V
Post Install Early Review
Per my plumber, this unit was easy to install. The pipe fittings were in a standard location, so that was less laborous. The electrical hook-up was on the top of the unit, which was a vast improvement over the old unit. The temp controls are very easy to access by the homeowner as well.
After researching several "squat" type water heaters, this unit proved to be the best value for the dollar in its' class.
I'm hoping it lowers my energy bill...

Very Straight Forward Installation Instructions
Purchased this 46.5 Gal. Lowboy electric water to replace a Whirlpool 38 Gal. Lowboy electric water heater that was 9 years old. Old water developed an unnoticed leak at the bottom heating element. Rusted to the point it could not be removed to replaced. Regular servicing would have prevented this problem. Other than that water was working fine. Decided was perfect time to install a larger one of same configuration - only difference is 2" larger diameter. Did need to raise the thermostates from factory settings - too get hotter than WARM water. Purchased from Lowe's with a 10% Veteran discount, so price was Very Acceptable.

Great features, reliable product name.
Just got it, but glad Whirlpool is known to be a quality product, and therefore expect excellent performance.

Pray it last longer than last one
I have been a home owner for 31 years. My water heater in under the house. I was 28 when I built my home. I didn't know better. I wish no one to deal with a heater under the house.

Get S#s before installer leaves
We had to hire a teen to go under the house to get the S# and model #. It would have been so much easier if the installer would have a pull off sticker in addition to the permanent one that stays on the heater that he could give the home owner.
