so far we like it We have had adequate hot water so far. The recovery rate seems very quick. Will know better after we have used it longer. But so far I like very much. October 22, 2014

Still too early We had this water heater installed a month ago in a newly constructed home and just recently moved in. The heater seems to work fine. It heats the water better than the model we had in the rental property and I like the digital panel which makes adjusting the temperature super simple. The price was very reasonable for this size of tank (80 gallon). So far, so good. October 14, 2014
Just installed two weeks back and meets excellent (Whirpool) quality standards in all respects. One minor note/suggestion for new users. Just installed by Lowe's professional contractor about two weeks back. With energy-saving-design and factory set standard maximum temperature 120 F, it takes a fraction of minute (instead of few seconds) to get warm (or hot) water in bath sink or tub on upper floor. If this bothers anyone. There is a "very-simple" solution (you don't need to call a technician or waste your money): Just increase the temperature setting on control panel by 2 F to 3 F, or from 120 F to: 123F or 125F. You will feel a big difference and the warm or hot water will come within few seconds on farther sink or tub. I also like the vacation-mode on the control panel, you can also use it daily if everyone is out working during daytime. It's excellent feature. Wish they included a daily and weekly timer setting on control panel --- may be it will be in their next model. October 5, 2014
This product is easy to install This product is easy to install with no hassles. The biggest problem installing is getting he correct pipes and fittings to hookup to the water lines already in the house. I replaced a 50 gallon unit with this unit. I only installed today 10/01/2014 so I can't give anymore details on cost to operate or how reliable it is. October 1, 2014
This water heater seems to be of very good quality This heater is replacing a 50 gal unit that was in my house for 10 years. Installation was simple and instructions are very good. No issues at all. One suggestion. Place a wiring block for customers to wire rather than twisting and capping. September 22, 2014
So far has done all it claimed to Purchased at Lowes. I highly recommend their professional installation. Approx. 2 1/2 hours to install including draining of old one and haul away. Three hours later and 80 gals of hot water ready to use. Easy to use controls. September 17, 2014
Simple and Easy This water heater was very simple to install, I did it myself, and the start up was so simple. Very easy to get set up and running, and so far no issues at all. I replaced a 15 year old Whirlpool 50 gallon water heater, it finally gave up on me. So, I am hoping this new Whirlpool lasts that long! September 17, 2014
plenty of hot water Replaced an 11 year old, water heater that was going bad . had a light leak decided to replace. this water heater works just great so far. you can set it on energy smart mode, mine is set at 130 degree. it heats water very fast it seems, especially compared to my old water heater . its bigger than my old 80 gallon water heater . because this one has 3 inches of insulation September 10, 2014
Easy install and best value We shopped around after our water heater broke and found this product to be best value for the money. Price was fair and reasonable based on comparable market product (80-gal) and warranties. Easy to install, easy to operate and program. It has many features including the ability to run manually if electronics fail. Had hot water again after an hour or so. Good product. September 7, 2014
