40 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - NU40T61-403
This product has great features
I bought 2 of these water heaters very easy to install and easy to light. Keep our water plenty hot year round. Never had any problems with the 1st one.

Whirlpool Gas water heater
Parts and tools needed for installation (printed on box) should include - (2) 4" nipples for the water supply to water heater connections. Without the nipples you can not install this water heater.
Nipples connection installation should say - use teflon tape on connections. I first used pipe compound on both hot & cold nipples and they both leaked. I then re-installed with teflon tape and no leaks.

Very nicely thought out. Easily installed. Lowes has an excellent extended warranty service and a retired plumber actually helped me in making my decision that worked at Lowes. It took me a little over 2 hours from removing my old water heater to actually having hot water without any leaks. Good job!!!!!

Price is very reasonable but the loud noise is something to consider.

Overall installation went well. The connections on the top of the unit to hot and cold lines were tricky to seal the first time. Everything else was straight forward.

I had good experience with a similar Whirlpool product
This water heater is replacing a similar water heater with same 6 years warranty that lasted over 10 years, with the hope that it will do the same or better...

Love the ignitor
Installed easy had hot water within 20 minutes from start up. Unit went right in with little issues. Just installed tonight so I can't comment on energy savings or reliability.

All enclosed is nice feature
After reading the reviews this water heater was my choice. Now that it has been installed for one month, I have not experience any of the negative comments. For me I replaced gas valve, gas line, water valve and both water line with new flex lines.
