OK so far Using flexible, non solder connectors, installation was quick and easy. Unit is a typical standard unit without any electronics so it is the same as the unit it replaced. This is only day two. There are no leaks and the water is hot...so all is good. January 16, 2015
Very Easy to Install Super easy to install. Seems to work fine - it has only been one day! January 10, 2015
whirlpool water heaters are best for the price I always had great luck with whirlpool products. My last water heater was a whirlpool. I had no problems with it until it was old. I believe all whirlpool products are of good quality and value. January 9, 2015
Very good water heater for the money! Would have been better if the water inlets were male connections and not female connections. January 9, 2015
So far, so good Our propane hot water heater died and it was one year beyond the warranty. We decided to switch to electric since propane is much more expensive in our area. We purchased this Whirlpool water heater after reading the positive reviews and the price was right at one of the box stores. We had our plumber install the unit (after an electrician installed the line) and so far it's working great! I'm hoping that I'll see a savings in the electric usage in comparison to the propane. I will keep you all informed.... January 7, 2015
Easy install, had to raise temp Hard to give full review with only a couple of days after install which is why I only gave it the average ratings. wish they would wait at least a couple of months to compare energy bills , how it works after break in etc. but it was simple and seems to work fine since I raised the temp 20 deg. The unit was dented at the bottom but appears to be only cosmetic. No leaking so I can live with that. The point is to install and forget about it and so far so good. I believe I got a good bargain for the price after shopping around. January 3, 2015
Easy to buy and install This product was easy to buy and install as long as you do your homework and take measurements of the area and the previous tank size. This model matched our old one perfectly and fit like a glove in the space where the old one was located without having to adapt the water lines and electric line. December 29, 2014
Easy install Product was easy to install. Instruction were very clear and to the point. December 17, 2014
Product Usage I installed this unit a week ago so my review is somewhat short because I've only used this unit twice since installation. However it was easy to install. I haven't noticed an increase in water pressure as one might expect with a new unit but its probably do to the restrictor in the output line for the hot water. (The instructions said not to remove them so I didn't.) Other than that the unit seems to be preforming good. I only have the heat setting on 120 degrees so it takes a little longer to notice hot water at end use. December 11, 2014
