50 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2H50RD045V
Product installation was easy but hot water cools fast
The heater installation was great but it seems the temperature of the water cools after 6 minutes and when second person goes to take shower water is cooled and needs to be adjusted. Im not sure if its the temperature set from the factory or if turning the water up would solve the problem. I do have grandchildren who come occasionally and dont want the start of the water first time to scald them. It was installed according to instructions with heat traps installed and Im wondering they have something to do with water recovery.

great warranty, quite operation
easy to install, very quiet, it was not heavy to move to put into place, was easily done by one person, within 30 minutes we had hot water, clear instruction, factory temp settings at 120, good insulation, make sure to measure your space for height and width, has shown no leakage, have not had long enough to compare money savings. 9 year warranty is great.

So far, so good
It was easy to install and looks like a good product. I live in an area where we have frequent power outages so I wanted the simple manual controls. It has been in for less than a day so time will tell. I am replacing a 10 year AO Smith unit that went out after 5 years and hoping the 9 year Whirlpool unit will make at least 9.

This was very easy to install with common tools and fittings. It's been in for 6 months and I have not had any problems at all

Excellent featrures, except pressure relief should be on top.
This is the second Whirlpool heater I have installed. Was easy to install, but the pressure valve should be installed initially on top, or make it easier to change.

I would recommend this unit!
I am not and electrician or a plumber and I spent more time draining the old unit than I did replacing it! After flushing and filling new unit, water was hot in 2 hours! I also purchased the necessary hardware separately instead of a
kit for a top quality install.

This is a replacement for the exact model that lasted 12 years in a hard water environment. Because this model is still in production, the installation was a snap ... all connections were in the right place.
