works well so far The only complaint I have so far is the pressure release valve leaked right out of the box and the plumber had to replace it during installation. August 14, 2014
Great This product has great features minimum required 0 August 7, 2014
Too early to make an evaluation-Only been in use for 4 days The only thing I can say about the water heater is that the hot water faucet needs to be opened further to get the same amount of water out of the faucet. I believe this is due to the baffle in the inlet and outlet. BUT THAT IS OK WITH ME. It has only been installed for 4 days so I can't tell if the energy cost is less or greater than before. Ease of instillation is standard, it's a no brainer to install. My old Montgomery Ward hater heater lasted for 20 plus years with NO maintenance before it sprung a leak. I hope to get the same usage from this Whirlpool unit. August 5, 2014
Ease of installation and performane Works excellent and was easy to install. I got an install kit and everything went right together. The system has heat traps built in. July 27, 2014
easy to install easy to install, energy efficient, good size to fit anywhere July 17, 2014
Great middle of the line product. I upgraded to this water heater (out of need) and have been very happy. It does the job well and was a great value. It doesn't have any of the bells and whistles or cool features like the top of the line products do but if you just want a basic water heater that will do the job and provide a vast supply of hot water, this is your water heater then.

Graet proformer After installation the heater worked wonderful, heated the water quickly. This heater was recommended by a close friend who has had one for years. Clean look and easy to install June 24, 2014
Nice looking water heater Easy install, water pressure applied, and the T&P valve was leaking out of the side (evidently there is a crack in it). Had to drain tank down below the T&P valve and install a new one. My hot water pressure is less than with the previous hot water heater..........must be the anti-siphon devices. June 24, 2014
This product has great features This product had all the features I needed. Same diameter, height and gallons as old water heater. Seems to be well built. Price was reasonable. I would recommend this product to anyone. June 5, 2014
This water heater is a good value Although the energy efficiency is mediocre, the 9 year guarantee and the low price (including installation from Lowes) sold me on this product after comparison shopping from multiple vendors. The payback time for buying higher energy efficiency is longer than the expected life of the water heater, so this product was at a value sweet spot. May 25, 2014
