We love the water temperature feature. We are happy to have hot water with the new water heater. Our son had installed this model in his home and recommended it to us. We like the outside features showing the temperature of the water. March 3, 2015
No surprises..unit as described Easy install, nothing additional to buy, The instructions for the "touch pad" could be better. IE what the 4 choices do. February 28, 2015
Easy to install, very good features After 24 hours of use, all I can say is so far, so good. I have high expectations, and I hope they are met. Thanks for putting out a good product. February 26, 2015
Very well insulated. Appears to be a great heater based on all of the research I have done. The instruction manual is extremely well written and easy to follow. The HOW TO do directions are quite simple. This unit features several settings based on your family's pattern of usage. Did not have this unit long enough to rate the "reliability or the effect on my energy bill." February 24, 2015
This product has great features I really like the ease of installation of this unit. The electronics make it very easy to set the desired temperature. I would highly recommend this product February 23, 2015
I like the touch plate feature I am just a one day owner, but am pleased with the design of the unit and the learning ability. I typically would have installed a time clock on it immediately. I will observe the operation as best I can to see if a time clock is in the cards down the road. February 15, 2015
