easy to install my water heater was installed on sunday and worked fine until sometime Wednesday and the breaker on top element kicked out and had to be reset . I hope this is not going to be a recurring problem. too soon to give a fair assement of reliability August 29, 2014

Just bought. Too soon to tell Just bought this water heater 2 days ago so can not really give a thorough review on this particular water heater. I can say that the ease of installation was great. Seems to be a sturdy product. Mainly I bought this particular water heater/ whirlpool brand because the one that I replaced was a 9 year water heater that lasted almost 14 years without any problems. Buying this brand again in hopes that I will have as many years as before. August 12, 2014

The water heater has only been installed for 1 week but all okay so far. After 1 week I am very pleased with the operation of the water heater. It is the quietest heater I've ever heard. Reheats very quick. July 27, 2014
Great product I was surprised how easy and fast it was to install and it did not take the water long to heat up. I had my father install it for me I watched every step and the total time it took was about 30 min. The tank was not very heavy either, I was able to wrap my arms around it and with the help of my dad at the bottom we would lift and set it down on each step. Highly recommend this tank.
