50 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2H50RD045V
good product with good warentee at a good price.
The installation was good - the only thing I would do different would be to use "Pipe Dope" right out of the shoot! It was no fault of the Whirlpool machinery that I had small leaks trying to use the standard "plumbers tape" supplied by the Lowes hot water installation kit. All the fittings are perfect but the tape did not work for me!
Once I got on line and saw that all the pro's on several sites said "use PTFE pipe dope" to the "small leaks" questions I went and bought some and used it - look Ma no leaks!
Perhaps the only fault I can find with this unit is the fact that they do not recommend (nor does Lowe's Install Kit come with) plumbers pipe joint compound instead of Teflon Tape! Otherwise read the manual - and follow directions and the machinery works fine!
So far so good - everything works and no leaks!

good inexpensive product
pressure relief drain in FRONT which made connection to rear drain exterior difficult. Should have come with water in and out nipples but did not. Install fairly easy.

Great heater. Provides plenty of on-demand hot water.
Looks great, functions great, & is everything I hoped for. Especially appreciate the extra insulation and ceramic seal feature. Would recommend this water heater to anyone and would certainly purchase a similar Whirlpool product again. This is the third Whirlpool product I've purchased this year and am very pleased with price, function, and appearance.

very quiet operation
after installation, I thought there was a problem because we could not hear any activity in the elements. However, after waiting only 10 minutes, thewater temperature was already hot . WOW ! this heater is very quick... and quiet.

Excellent value for the money
I really liked the size of this unit. It was more compact than other units avaiable. Comparable in size to many tall units
