decent price for the money basic 40 gal heater My water heater began leaking uncontrollably one night, and needed a budget replacement due to my financial constraints. Unfortunately I live in california, so it costs a couple hundred more for a "california" model water heater. This model was the cheapest at all the major home improvement stores by about $40. Install was a breeze (for never having installed a waterheater), and igniting was a non issue. November 22, 2014
**Made in the USA It has legs and wasn't outsourced to another country. Keeps jobs here. Electronic Ignition. Purchased at Lowes. This model was only $2.00 higher in cost than the Rheem Brand 28 Gallon model sold at Home Depot? I have never had any issues with Whirlpool products and this seems to carry on the tradition.

Good Water Heater easy to install and the controls are simple and easy to use October 20, 2014
easy to install and light very happy so far, the water heater it lit up the very first time and it is still on. Had a bad experience before with a Rheem water heater before because after installing it, it would not light up and had to uninstall it and return to store and install another one. So this whirlpool lit up right away on first try. However, heater nipples not included and had to buy separately at store October 8, 2014
