80 Gallon Electric Water Heater - ES80H123-45D 4.7 5 220 220
plenty of hot water i can finally take a bath without running out of hot water!! we had a 46 gallon that just wouldnt let me take a hot bath, even tho it wasnt that old. so we bought this 80 gallon, so when we had guests we would be sure to have enough hot water. we havent had guests yet, but im thrilled to be able to take a hot bath again!! i gave it 4 stars on value, more for installation than the price of the hot water heater itself. i had no idea it cost so much for one of these things to be installed!!

Plastic parts The water heater came with a plastic drain valve that leaks and needed replaced. Then the pressure relief valve leaks once in a while so that needs replaced. December 14, 2014
Nice produce, works good The difficulty in install came when I wanted to connect the inlet and outlet with standard copper fitting, thread to sweat. Teflon tape on the threads, both in and out had leaks. I used standard copper pipe and unions. I resolved the problem by using some old pip thread past which worked great, no leaks. This may be an isolated issue but it gave me problems. I understand that the current "standard" way to install a water heater is to use flex hoses with rubber washers, but why make the fittings only work with the flex hoses? The heater seems to work great. December 13, 2014

Product was easy to intall and operate. Very good features very good unit that was very east to intall. Need to make sure home has appropriate height and space for installation. Once the unit was in, the operation is very user friendly and no more cold or luke warm showers. December 1, 2014
more hot water we do have a lot more hot water. we have not had it long enough to tell a whole lot about so far so good November 29, 2014
so far.. so good it's been about a month and it works like it should. installation was a breeze thanks to shark bite braded hoses. not sure how it is going to effect my energy bill, to soon to tell. but it is replacing a 20 yr old tank so i'm sure it will be better. November 24, 2014
this is a wonderful product i love the features of the whirlpool hot water heater November 24, 2014
