40 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2H40RD045V 4.5 5 44 44
I've had Whirlpool water heaters in the past. they've always been dependable. I would like to see the return of the metal drain valve. They seem much stronger and durable. Also having a slow leak problem at supply line connection point. April 22, 2014
The unit looks nice and was easy to install. This is the first whirlpool water heater I've purchased so, time will tell. I did find the instructions easy to follow and the unit was easy to install. I was a little confused about which heat trap to use because both the water heater and the inlet and outlet nipples I used had a heat traps. I took the traps out of the unit and left them in the nipples. April 21, 2014
