Excellent - no problems Owned two whirlpool water heaters. The first was purchased in 1993 and lasted 20 years(hole in bottom of tank rim). Replaced with another whirlpool water heater. Expect no problems with this one. Purchased both from Lowe's. Huey Tatum October 11, 2014

Changes in design Last water heater I purchased from Lowes had the necessary nipples already installed in water heater. As this one did not, I was out an additional expenditure of $35.00. Other than that I am happy with the purchase. September 16, 2014

This product seems to be good, just installed, don't know how effeciant yet. Easy to install for anyone that can solder pipe or has knowledge of plumbing products. September 2, 2014
Easy install The installation went very smoothly. I found the thermostat setting to be a bit on the low side and would be happier if the pressure relief valve were located toward the rear of the unit. Overall I am very happy with the value and ease of installation. Had usable hot water within an hour of powering up. September 2, 2014
This product heats quickly We love this hot water heater. Recovers quickly, we never run out of hot water. So easy to install, my husband handled it himself. August 31, 2014
Easy to install This heater is very easy to install. I'm 67 years old, retired band director, and we like the energy saving features of this water heater. Our last heater was also a Whirlpool. Just the name shouts quality, so you can't go wrong. August 28, 2014
