cool burner lighting technique My original 50 gallon whirlpool water heater only lasted 6 years (harsh Las Vegas water I suppose) but the 12 year warranty was sure worth the peace of mind and the call center arranged a replacement for it with just a few questions. July 16, 2014
great product After having the water heater installed by a licensed and bonded plummer, he explained the features and the ease of use.It was very simple and easy to ignite the pilot light! Super efficient, hot water was available after minimal time. Having the status light is a great feature. June 22, 2014
Love the longer 12 year warranty and inition pilot start button Water heater was simple to install using standard methods. Pilot feature was nice with electronic inition. May 25, 2014
The product is very effcient Just had it installed two days ago, and already notice the very fast and efficient heat of the water. Actually, had to reduce the heat level to a lower range compare to the old one. Would recommend to friends. May 15, 2014
this product has some good features I bought this product because of the easy to use control panel, I really like the green light that tells that the pilot light is still working or if there's a problem with the system May 9, 2014
All in all good product Good product for the money. I have only had it for a couple of weeks but is working well. I like hot hot showers so did feel the temp. cooled to quickly but turned up temp and is doing great now. I was suprised thats its even a pretty color and goes well with my other appliances.

Great Product, very efficient and delivers the hot water we need This Product was very easy to install. After hooking up all lines (gas & water) and testing for leaks, it was all systems Go. No problems, the pilot was easy to light and the Water Heater has been working great. I would Highly recommend this product. I reviewed several other Brands/Manufacturers before my purchase and we are Very Satisfied with our choice. Thank You Whirlpool March 25, 2014
The product is well made and easy to install. Overall the product is very high quality and the fit and finish are excellent. The insulation is far in excess of what I expected, the outside is room temp after being on for 24 hours and a blanket would be a waist of time. The recovery rate is excellent with a family of five all got a hot shower in the morning and that includes three girls. March 24, 2014
energy efficiency not high enough to qualify for rebate. While the product is a great value, I was disappointed to learn (after purchase) that its energy rating is not high enough to qualify for a store or PG&E rebate. March 24, 2014
great I like design and color and performance......................................................................................................... February 27, 2014
