Energy Vacation Normal installation easy Product value great. Observed the contractor's installation, Very easy. Few tools used. Installation guide is online under review area. For the money spent, I believe was a fair expense. Check reviews and comparison shop. January 22, 2015
This produce looks good and I have sold Whirlpool products and used them for over 35 years and have always been satisyfied with their performance. I have had this product less than 12 hours and cannot write a review about the quality until we have used it for some time. January 20, 2015
This is a replacement for 2 previous Whirlpool hot water heaters. I purchased a 50-gallon Whirlpool hot water heater in 2004, which had to be replaced in October 2010 on 10-year warranty due to a water leak in bottom of heater. This happened all over again in January 2015, 10 weeks after the 10-year warranty ran out, so I had to purchase this new one for $500 to replace the October 2010 heater. It is a shame that your products are not made to last longer than this, and my home has a water softener. This latest cost of $500 for this new water heater plus $200 labor to have it installed hit me at a very bad time just after the holidays. I just hope this new heater lasts longer than previous ones.

Consistant Temperature Level Fast Heat up; consistant temperture (never run out of Hot Water again); fast easy installation! Easy read digital temperture gage; super nice looking unit. Reliability (time will tell) I certainly hope it's as reliable as it is nice looking. Not sure about energy useage just yet. January 15, 2015
Worksfine. Seemed very easy for the plumber to install. Hoping it lasts for the full warranty period. January 15, 2015
Great look and design. The heater looks space age and I like the color. Easy install. January 11, 2015
love the convenience and precision of digital features The digital features and the digital display make this convenient to operate. If the temperature of the water needs adjusted, I feel like I'm making accurate adjustments when being able to change temp in digital increments as opposed to turning a wheel and trying to guess how much it adjusted the temp. Love the energy efficiency options also. January 9, 2015
Great water heater Water heater is compact, has good capacity (50 Gallon) and energy saving features. Easy to set water temperature from a front panel. Should lower energy bill as compared to older 5 year old, inefficient water heater. January 9, 2015
Great warranty and features good value, and easy to install and sized to fit almost any where January 4, 2015
Easy Installation and Easy-to-Use Control Panel Once the old water heater was out of the way, installing this unit was a breeze! Compression fittings from the house copper lines and high performance flexible water heater hoses were used on the water inlet and outlet; rigging up the CPVC pipe for the T&P relief valve was actually fun, and the electronics were very straightforward. Total installation time was about two hours. Before leaving for lunch, we already had hot water!! January 4, 2015
