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 is a great product overall.
The installation was easy enough considering the small area in which water heater is located. Installation guide was helpful. I will definitely recommend the product to others.

Easy to install
Just installed a few weeks ago. My friend (a contractor) and I did it in less than two hours...very easy! So far, so good.

Looks good, modern yet standard unit
Almost identical in size, fittings, and connections to the 17 year old unit it replaced. The "no match" igniter lighting, viewport safety, and bright white flashing status indicator give it a modern twist. My unit is in a laundry room next to the kitchen so I can hear the pilot whistle, and when doing a heat cycle it sounds like a jet taking off. I think its a plus, but I can imagine some might find it a bit loud for an interior unit. As for maintenance. The included air filter will help keep everything clean inside the burn chamber. The screw driver drain valve will be easy to operate when cleaning the tank yearly. I will be happy if it lives near as long as the old unit.

This product takes care of itself...
I love the style of the unit...has a pilot with auto lighting...that's the best. I have had whirlpool products be before, they have always been reliable. If I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing. I would highly recommend going with a whirlpool water heater..

Just check to make sure all the connections are where you need them, gas line, relief valve. Mine were all on the opposite sides, had to get longer connecting lines.

Great bang for your buck.
Been using this water heater in a home with 3 people and i cant think of any bad things to say about it. Install was very easy and it started up with no problems. With doing wash and taking showers at the same time we have yet to run out of hot water, and thats with the heater at the lower setting.Very happy and would buy again with no doubt in my mind.
