Whirlpool 50 gallon water heater Easy to install, nice to look at and meets the needs of my family. February 22, 2015
Short period of use This 12 year warranted water heater was recently installed 02/16/2015. So far so good. The warranty to price point is excellent and having bought this product from Lowe's Home Improvement, was able to get an (11) year extended total replacement, labor included for $119.00. A no brainer decision. February 21, 2015
Very efficient Easy to install and works great cost efficient and price was good February 19, 2015
This heater has great design. Like the looks.The dital part and operation of the heater. Hope it last as long as old one.(21) years. February 15, 2015
So far so good Had to replace one that started leaking over the weekend. Found this online from the Lowes site and it was in stock ran through the reviews and it seemed most were good some bad. Simple to install and hook-up had it done in about 2 1/2 hours including removing the old one. We did have to up the temp a little, my wife likes hot water, and I did not use the Smart feature. I just set it to temp and left it in standard mode. A lot of complaints were about loss of shower pressure and I did notice some of that also, but have not tried to get it to go up some. We'll see how it does. February 13, 2015
