40 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - NU40T61-403
DIY Install Went Very Well
Bought this to replace a Whirlpool 12 year 40 gallon water heater. Had issues from early on with the12 year model for whatever the reason, wasn't going to make a warranty claim as partly it was my fault-----> remember to drain and flush your water heater twice a year!!
I had my son install it, and the installation went was very easy... all done to code, installed outside in heater shed, strapped to the wall, all new flex gas line and fittings, as well as water flex lines
My son had it installed in about 45 minutes. After the install was completed and checked for both gas and water leak; the pilot lit up on the first try; we had hot water within the hour
I definitely like the electronic HoneyWell thermostat / gas controller on this new water heater over older mechanical gas control valve type. The honeyWell seems to provides better control over the water temp.
Don't forget to drain and flush at least twice a year.

Easy to install.
We've only had it a day but the unit was simple to install, it lit right up, had hot water in a half hour.
I will see if it lowers my energy bill and how reliable it will be.
So far I'm happy with the purchase.

Looks clean and modern, easy to buy, easy to install and works as expected. It gives me hot water and I don't seem to ever run out of it. It's quiet while the gas is burning but it does make a loud humming noise for a few seconds each time the gas first fires on. Three people in the house!
