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 November 10, 2012
Highly Reccomended The easiest installation of a new unit ever. Swapped in and out in 1 hour. Barely had to do without hot water. It is performing well so far and seems to be very efficient. The design and lighting are so much more simple. Vert satisfied with this product. January 27, 2015
could not recommend This tank was obtained under a return authorization to replace one under four years old that was leaking down the flue onto the burner. The threads on the hot water discharge of the new tank were damaged badly enough they ruined two different nipples and a good seal could not be obtained. Buying a 3/4 NPT tap at over $36 turned out to be the cheapest thing to do to rectify the problem. January 26, 2015
Hope this second one last longer than the first. I purchased one of these from Lowe's and had in installed on 1-20-2015. The next day I had water all over my garage. I checked all of the fittings and determined that none were leaking, and that the water was coming out of the top of the unit. I went to Lowe's to see what need to be done. Lowe's determined that we needed to REPLACE the ONE DAY old water heater. A new replacement water was installed 1-21-2-15. The installer advised that the one day old unit was defective.

This product has GREAT FEATURES Installation of the water heated was quick and heater ignited, taking less than five minutes. There is a light on the front panel which indicates that the product it is on and working properly and the light will also blink every three seconds which indicates the hot water heater on. There isn't any guess work with this product. January 20, 2015
Clear instructions, easy installation and start-up. So far so good. This water heater was set up exactly like our old one so it was very easy to install - only took about 1.5 hours. Instructions were clearly written and it was easy to start-up. It has only been in use a couple of days but it seems to be doing a very good job. January 20, 2015
Easy to install Previous hot water tank was a different manufacturer, one I had never heard of, and lasted 21 years. I'm hoping this one will be as durable. January 14, 2015
Appears to be well built. Easy to install, first tank of hot water was ready in less than 30 min. Controls are easy to operate with instructions on the side of the tank. I would recommend this water heater. January 11, 2015
Do not know yet This product should last 20 years so it is hard to tell if it is GOOD, Great or Poor now, It works fine and does not have any issues. January 10, 2015
So far so good Good experience so far. Seems to be pretty reasonably priced and is serving it's function. January 4, 2015
