50 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - N50T61-403
Gas water heater that is very easy to install...
From the store to the job being completed it only took around 2 1/2 hours, and thats counting removing the old water heater. After filling the water heater with water I lite the pilot light and around an hour later we had HOT water. Thank you Whirlpool for making such a great product that is easy to install. ***** STARS

The product is q good value
Great unit. Just make sure you use sufficient amounts of teflon tape on the two dielectric nipples at the top of the tank. The deep threads required at least 6-7+ wraps... Difference between that and 2-3 is a wet shower :). Otherwise was an "easy" install for the "weekend warrior" in us all. Thanks.

So far, So good.
I bought this water heater at Lowes and it was very reasonably priced. It was easy to install, I did this by myself and it only took about 1-1/2 hrs. total, That included disconnecting and removing the old water heater. The new one fit right in place. The only thing I needed to do was shorten the incoming and outgoing lines because I went from a 40 gal to a 50 gal. tank.
To make the job easier I used SharkBite connectors from
Home Depot, Very easy to install.
Seems to be a good product so far.

Better then my 2 Rheem water heaters
I had one Rheem Hot water heater in a brand new house that lasted only 3 years, without warning it dumped water into my living room from the garage platform, it was under warranty & was replaced but not before paying a plumbing company $680 for the install, the new one lasted 9 years then flooded out my garage again. Not sure why they can not put a warning signal when they start to go & leak. I have Whirlpool Washer & Dryer, a Whirlpool reverse osmosis water purification system & now this water heater I purchased from Lowes. My Whirlpool experience has been- The highest quality, dependable appliances & great customer service. Not taking anymore chances with another company's water heater. This water heater was professionally installed, works very efficient. I like the flashing blue light on the Honeywell controller as well. It runs very quiet. Buy it.

I have only had it for a day, but this seems like a good value.
I was disappointed that nobody seems to stock the 50 Gal with a 60000 BTU burner. It is really helpful for us and the price was only about $2 difference but they have to be ordered and take upwards of two weeks...we just can't be without hot water for that long.

Repairs on getting the water heater to light
Not being the installer of this water heater, its hard to talk about installation, the operation has been fine since July, 2013. The water heater went out on Good Friday; the pilot has quit working, a plumber cannot get the pilot to light so the water heater has not worked for 3 days and they are going to get a part replaced. Being 70 years old, I only know most water heaters work for years so I anticipated this would be my the last time to purchase a water heater. It does concern me that it is not easily repaired by a plumber familiar with all kinds of water heaters. I hope this problem is resolved as soon as possible.
