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
good product easy to install warranty 6 years with Lowe's extended warranty added another 5 yrs July 19, 2014
I really like the status display on the Honeywell control panel. This unit was very easy to install, one just had to follow the easy to read and follow instructions on the box. July 8, 2014
Easy, functional and affordable Was very pleased with the quality and affordable cost as the replacement of my old one was unexpected haha July 6, 2014
Good value Quick installation and quick results. Easy access to check pilot. Indicator light is a nice "surprise" July 6, 2014
Not most energy efficient but good value This unit is on the bad end of the energy efficiency scale, but there isn't that big of a difference between the most and least efficient water heaters. It is priced very competitively compared to the competition. The quality appears to be excellent and the installation instructions are well written and easy to follow. After installation it started right up and is doing its job. July 1, 2014
Value to cost Based on comparison with other H2O heaters, this product provides a good product value to cost ratio. June 29, 2014
This product was comparable to my old water heater This product was in the top five of best brands. I checked the specifications on all five and this product as far as features,looks,price and specifications comparable to my old water heater I picked this one. June 26, 2014
This product is reliable This product is very easy to install, but parts do not hold up very long. June 21, 2014
Works great Works fine, plenty of hot water. (Replaced my still working 44 year old 60 gallon electric water heater). Had to turn down the setting because it was hotter than we were used to. Was told by a Lowes employee (supposedly expert - NOT TRUE) that I could vent this outside by using 3" PVC pipe and elbowing down outside. The PVC pipe got soft and began to melt. I had to get double insulated type B gas pipe for venting outside and up the side of the building with a vent cap on the top. June 20, 2014
