Good Product - Two Thumbs Up I installed this product for my elderly parents, to replace a water heater that has lasted 26 years before leaking a couple of weeks ago. This heater was a breeze to install, and to wire up. FIll it up, and turn on the breaker - takes a few min to run self-diagnostic. The display is easy to read, and the buttons easy to operate. Easy to set temperature as well as Economode and Vacation mode. We hope it will certainly lower their electric bill. It put out hot water not too long after installation. It looks good and has performed well for the past few days. We'll see how the warranty holds up. Good Product, two thumbs up. Appears to be made by American Water Heater Company (AWHC)....American Made. April 22, 2015

It's nice to have hot water all of the time! So far I have been very pleased with the performance of the water heater. It's easy to change temperature settings by simply pushing a button and I always have hot water for my theraputic baths. (And I have a deep soaker tub!)
