50 Gallon Electric Water Heater - ES50R92-45D
Water Heater w/Digital Control Has Great Features
I was able to install this unit all by myself. However, it was rather heavy and I had help with the removal of the old unit. I already had plumbing fittings from the previous water heater installation. So I raised the unit up off the Concrete garage floor and purchased flex hoses for the hot and cold connections. I bought a PEX Fitting and a 5 foot length to plumb the pressure relief valve to a standing drain tube just behind the Water Heater. Removal, Cleanup, setup and Installation took a total of 6 hours. That included check for and fixing leaks by tightening fittings once all the installation was complete. I was able to install the unit a little closer to the corner in the garage to recapture space the previous Water Heater took.
I thought the total cost of the unit was a lot higher than expected. with the stainless braided hoses, right angle fittings, the PEX fitting and PEX hose, I spent more than $400

Excellent so far!
I am totally satisfied so far with this product. The weight was manageable ( I am a female), it installed easily, and it looks great! I love the electronic control panel, it is so much easier to adjust the temp than the ones where you have to use a screwdriver to access the controls. Very happy so far.

Very easy installation and heats quick.
This unit is new at the time of review. Took it home and installed it within 1 hour. It has quick installation guide that makes it a cake walk. Put the water in the tank and after a good purge turned power on. It went through the 8 minute diagnostic. Had hot water running in no time. I really like the electronics display. You will always know what is going on with the unit. Plus if the electronics fails, your still in business with a few adjustments.

As New-HOT WATER HEATER SEEMS TO BE EXCELLENT & FULFILLS ALL OF OUR NEEDS. HOWEVER WARANTY INFORMATION IS VAGUE.
NOT ENOUGH TIME TO EVALUATE YET. IT'S BEEN ONLY 15 DAYS FOR CHRIST'S SAKE. YOUR EXPECTATIONS ARE UNREALISTIC. AS I HAVE SAID, AS OF RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING SEEMS GREAT & DOES THE JOB. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE SAVINGS & ADVANTAGES OF THIS PRODUCT. THERE! IS THAT ENOUGH?!

Product is great to look at!
This product is small enough where my laundry room looks roomier. The water is easily ajustable to hot or cold. I have not had it for long but I think it was a great purchase so far.
