Easy to install, easy to contol and monitor
The same height as my old 50 gal but more round, I assume this would be for more insulation.

Good for the price
This water heater is priced very well and was not too difficult to install. For the price, it has some good features like the self cleaning ability that keeps the sediment to a minimum for longer life. Easy to light and works very well.

I hated my GE water heaters - I had to replace them 5 times in past 11 years
My new Whirlpool water heater feel its built pretty solid

This is a very good unit with a long warranty period and easy to install. I would have preferred that the unit did not require a filter.

One of the great features is that this unit is Made In The USA!
The unit was easy to set up once the unit was set in place in the attic; however, it weighed 150 lbs. and there is no easy way to set this unit inside the drip pan but I managed. I wish there were some handles or straps to use to make it more manageable when setting the unit in the drip pan. I liked the fact that the unit lit the first time and status "light blue" LED light flashing every three seconds. The operating manual told me to look for the "red" flashing light but my LED light was a light blue in color. The Instruction Manual provided good safety information for the home owner and safe operation of the unit. This unit was well packaged in a box and included hand slots when maneuvering it through the attic door. The box also was marked with "Front" and "Back" with setup instructions.

It's a water heater
When you need a water heater at 8:30 PM on a Saturday night, the opportunity to shop around and compare models is out of the question. You go to Lowe's and you get what they have in stock or you take a cold shower in the morning.
The water heater was well packaged and survived the trip home and into the basement with no issues. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The installation went easy considering this unit was appx 2 inches taller than the old Bradford White unit. A little preplanning goes a long way when you installed the last unit and had to add unions. Total time for my installation was just over 2 hours.
I am satisfied with my purchase and now we wait to see if it is as good as it's 9 year warranty suggests.
I rated everything average because with only 4 days of service, how else can you rate it. It worked out of the box and I took a hot show on Sunday morning.
Don't for get to check the top of your water heater before you leave the store to verify if the water heater has pipe nipples installed in the inlet and outlet ports. The guy at Lowe's thought we should check and he was able to supply a set of dielectric pipe fittings as part of my purchase.

This product has great features
Replaced my old whirlpool with a new whirlpool water heater. The last one had a 9 year warranty and lasted 9 years and 4 months and I could not find replacement parts for it so I bought a new one. Since it was just installed about a week ago I don't know yet if it will increase or decrease my energy bill. I went from a 40 gallon to a 50 gallon because it was cheaper to buy the 50 gallon. The installation went well, was installed by a contractor from Lowes.

Easy to install
Easy to install - like the pilot control panel. Water for the first few days smells but then dissipates. Louder than my old Kenmore but also $500 cheaper.
