40 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - NU40T121-403
This product was an exact replacement of previous GE unit.
This model was almost identical to the water heater that it was replacing and had the same specifications and warranty period. I was able to use the earthquake straps that were installed 12 years ago and all connections were in the same locations, so only the exhaust vent pipe had to be shortened slightly which took a couple of minutes. The installers had no problems and the entire process took less than 3 hours, which was very cost effective.

Good for House
My only concern is the thrumming sound the heater makes. I'm told the thrumming is the sound of trapped air and that the noise will go away in a couple of weeks. I hope so; it's loud. Otherwise, I like this heater. Home Depot and Sears had poor selections. I bought this one at Lowes.

Like features, 12 warranty and good looking
Installation was streight forward, having Plumber with right tools made easier. Assist plumber with installation. Easy instructions helped make install go smoother. selected unit for number of reasons, 12 yr warranty was one.

This is the best water heater we have ever purchased.
The only thing that we found odd was that when the water is turned on, the water heater hums. According to the manual, this is a normal occurence. Water heater works great otherwise!

3rd Purchase of this water heater for an apartment bldg
The third of 3 hot water heaters failed this week. The others failed mid summer last year. I replaced all with the NU40T121-403, 40 gallon water heater, with 12 year warranty. It is very easy to install, very easy to ignite the pilot light, and very easy to check on the status of the pilot light due to the blinking status lamp that monitors the pilot flame. Looking forward to a long problem free installed period.
As I am not one of my renters I can not confirm that the gas bill dropped, but I rather expect it did so.

This product has reat features.
This tank seems like it of high quality. Its difficult to give a proper review as it only been installed 1 day. I think any good review will depend on how long the electronic starter last. As of today I am happy with the tank. I notice that is very quiet when it is heating. That is a plus.

The water heater has worked flawlessly since I purchased it two months ago. Today, however, I noticed that the water temperature in the shower did not get hot. It was warm but not as it has been up until now. Normally I need to add some cold water to make the shower more comfortable.
I'm hoping that this occurrence today is not the prelude to a scenario where each time I take a shower the water is cooler and cooler and won't get hot.
