40 Gallon Liquid Propane Gas Water Heater - L40S62-403
It's really too early to tell: 3 days installed. So far, good.
It's too early to tell about energy use, reliability, quality, etc. It was easy to install and, given it's a water heater in the garage, it looks OK.

good looking heater
Needed a new water heater since my Kenmore inlet and outlet nipples rusted through and were seeping water over the top or the heater. Shopped Home Depot and Hammond Lumber and finally Lowes where I found your heater and it seemed to be the best choice. I kind of liked no inlet or outlet nipples as I prefer the brass ones I used, they will not rust out.
Install went well and the burner fired right up with no surprises.
Performs as expected.

So far so good
Replaced 25yr old water heater with this one. Fit right into same hookups. Simple to ignite. Keeps up with three adults in household.

This Whirlpool water heater appears to be a quality-made product; the new monitored gas valve is a plus, to check pilot light operation at a glance. Hopefully, it will outlast the last Whirlpool water heater I replaced.....

Good product Whirlpool
Have not yet put it to use as it was just installed but have every confidence that it will be fine. Last hot water heater was 21 years old. This is a good company so have high hopes it will be equally as good for us.

So far so good, had an easy time installing and starting up this water heater. The time it took to fill and heat was fast, but I had to set between c and hi to have water as hot as needed for baths and dishes, also since my water heater is installed in our basement which happens to be a little on the colder side, we purchased a insulated tank wrap that was very easy to apply around the tank, this should help with overall cost to use.

Watch For damaged units
Needed a short 40 Gal. LP heater ASAP. Not a popular item at other stores so I Purchased @lowes. Selected box that was not damaged and when I opened the unit was flattened on top and bottom of unit. Returned and when I installed replacement unit, relief valve constantly leaked. Found out valve was damaged due to handling at store. Required another trip for replacement valve. Did get a discount but not worth the time lost going back twice. Makes hot water but is much louder than my old one.
I dont have a great feeling about my purchase.
