Easy to install I found this water heater easy to install and the control features easy to use. Heats water very well. July 13, 2014
The product is current with technology. My concern was that the drain is positioned so that it makes it difficult to put a pan under the heater. I ended up not putting a pan under the water heater due to the position of the drain. I could not make it work without putting an extra large pan under the water heater. This was not feasible for the location of the hot water heater. July 13, 2014
this product is small and compact. This product is small and compact. It did not take long to install. We just got it but the features are great. I just wish the company would have the temperature a little lower than 120. I know I can lower it but it would be easier to have it lower at the factory. Other than that we like it. Thank you.

We had a previous whirlpool water heater and service was excellent We had a previous Whirlpool water heater that was very reliable, so when it started to leak we called them and the replaced with a new one, no questions asked. The new one is energy smart and should be even better than the old one July 12, 2014
