nice looking digital is great to have. seems well made and heated up quite quickly. November 17, 2014
Good product, good price, easy to install. Bought it at Lowes. The salesman walked me through the installation process step by step and picked out all the plumbing pieces I would need for the job. I left the store with exactly what I needed for the job. I removed the old unit and installed this one in less than 2 hours, start to finish. Nothing difficult about it. I saved myself $300 by DIY. I can't comment on energy savings yet, but I'm hopeful. November 14, 2014
Awesome I am very happy with my new hot water heater. Works wonderfully, At lowest setting the water is steaming hot. Best investment I made November 11, 2014
this product is spiffy This type of electric water heater was easy to install and the exterior digital readout of temp setting is very user friendly. Going to like the ability to program heat settings while away on vacation. Every day use temp setting easy. November 4, 2014
OVERALL A GREAT PRODUCT Easy to install, good instructions. only issue is I have to push really, really hard for 3 seconds on the lock button to get it to unlock to access the controls. October 30, 2014
This hot water heating is great for a big family I got the 80gal hot water heater 10yrs ago, and its still working great, we are a family of 5 and we always have hot water, and it didn't run my bill up that much. when we had a smaller tank it ran out a lot and heating up all that water over and over cost more in the long run. its not hard to hook up, do what it tells you to do and forget it. I just got a new house and I am putting another one in. Thanks for making some thing that last and does what you say it will. October 29, 2014
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
