50 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E2H50RD045V
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
