40 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - N40T121-403
Hottest water so far!
Wow! What a difference in the amount of hot water! Out unit is set only at hot and it cranks out more hot water than our 16 year old heater ever did! I did not rate the quality yet is it was just installed, but it seems like a well built unit. Like the darker color gray vs the white color. My friend just bought a 50 gallon 6year Whirlpool hot water heater, but I decided to go for the 40 gallon but with a 12 year warranty for the piece of mind, especially with the new sensors up front. We'll see if it lasts that long!

This product has the features I was seeking.
This water heater replaced an existing unit. Its measurements and hookup locations had to match up with my existing heater, and I was looking for a longer warranty (12 year) due to its location in an attic. It meets ALL requirements, and was a cinch to install due to a thorough instruction manual. The electric pilot lighter is a feature very much appreciated.

IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL IF THERE WAS AN EXTERNAL DETAIL LIST OF CONNECTIONS NEEDED TO INSTALL. I HAD TO MAKE 3 EXTRA TRIPS TO THE STORE TO GET THE RIGHT HOSE CONNECTIONS. WITH THE RECESSED FITTINGS IN THE TANK AND NO WARNING THAT YOU COULDN'T GET A WRENCH ON THE FITTINGS TO TIGHTEN REQUIRED SPECIAL FLEX HOSES OR EXTRA NIPPLES AND SLEEVES, AND THE GAS FITTING REQUIRED 2 TRIPS TO GET THE RIGHT PART. PART OF THE PROBLEM WAS NO ONE AVAILABLE IN THE STORE TO ASSIST, WHEREAS IF A LIST HAD BEEN AVAILABLE WOULDN'T HAVE NEEDED THEM. THIS WAS AN EMERGENCY LATE EVENING REPLACEMENT.

nice looking unit, good , easy to use controls
so far the unit does very adequate job and looks nice. controls are easy to access. Hopefully will last a long time as it was a pretty pricey water heater.

Replacement under warranty
I called customer service and described my problem. The whole process to replace an older tank still under warranty was started about 3 PM today and was completed and operational by 7:30. All of this occurred on a Friday evening. I had a great installer whop handled the whole process and did a great job with an excellent product

Easy to install, great now, true value and quality determined many years from now
Very easy to install and is working great now. True test will be determined many years from now. With a 12 year warranty my expectation is that it will live up to its warranty. So far so good.

previous water heaters have had stems on top to attact in and out hoses. This one did not. It had two holes with nylon treads. That was the first of about four trips back to Lowes. according to the plumber, that I hired to innstall the water heater, Lowes sold me the wrong parts for these in and out conections with the nylon treads. He also said Lowes is the only place in town that he knows of to buy Whirlpool parts. (this is the same problem I discovered when I tried to have my old waterheater repaired. My old Whirlpools waterheater was a nine year and lived shortly longer. I liked the old one and that is why I purchased this twelve year heater.
that brings up another point. It cost me $463. to have it innstalled. I cant imagine buying one with shorter life at that high cost of installing.
