Easy to install The Whirlpool water heater was in stock at Lowes, Sales assited with loading. It replaced a 25 year old 50 gal heater. Used 40 gal size due to faster recovery for newer heaters. It fit in the space a, closet in my home. Installation was easy. May 16, 2015
Hot water heater is new but so far so good... easy install and works wonderfully well This heater is brand new and replace a tankless hot water heater that absolutely was a waste of money, time and frustration ... Came back to an electric heater and after reading previous reviews i chose this one.... and so far so good... I turn on the hot water and I get hot water... immediately... its quiet and should be efficient.... May 14, 2015
This product handles our hot water greatly. We are very pleased with the efficiency of this water heater. We had hot water soon after the installation. We had bathed and washed three loads of clothes that afternoon. Just two of us reside here. May 1, 2015
EZ to install. Just installed on 4/20/15 so we will see if it lasts as long as our last whirlpool water heater. EZ to install. Just installed on 4/20/15 so we will see if it lasts as long as our last whirlpool water heater. It would be nice it it came with the threaded nipples needed so homeowner installers would not have to purchase them. April 22, 2015

Economical So far this product has met my expectations and it was a great value. April 19, 2015
Awesome Was easy to install, hands on instructions,,,I did need to buy 3/4" nipples, but was ok with that. I would recommend this product April 16, 2015
Installed in a manufactured home with limited space for it. Because of Government intervention forcing water heater companies to create larger diameter unit that will not fit manufactured home water heater spaces, I had to buy this unit now, or create a larger closet to contain the new government required size. April 16, 2015
very satisfied Installation was straight forward. \No problems whatsoever. Easy instructions. April 13, 2015
product appears fine, only had 1 day heated up right away wish it had relief on top so i wouldnt have to alter my discharge piping. Also, someone needs to tell supplier that you must purchase the heat trap nipples , because copper fittings will not fit into your in and out water lines !!!!! (on tank) April 4, 2015
