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
SO FAR SO GOOD THIS HAS ONLY BEEN INSTALLED FOR 2 DAYS, SO I REALLY CAN'T KNOW LONG TERM DEPENDABILITY. EASY TO PUT IN , IF YO HAVE EXTRA STONG ARMS TO LIFT IT INTO PLACE. February 3, 2014
A great product I'm very happy with this water heater. I installed it myself. One thing I would suggest for DIYers is to use standard 3/4" NPT nipples (3" or 3 1/2"). The guy at Lowes suggested I use special connectors that help keep the heat within the tank. I found that those don't work well since there is flow control already available on this energy star unit. I changed those out, and it works great. January 28, 2014
Beautiful hot water heater, quiet and works like a dream! My Whirlpool hot water heater is very efficient, beautiful and quiet. Although I have not had it long enough to determine how much money I am saving, I did have to turn down the "hot level" compared to my old one. I have this unit down to the minimum hot level and I still get piping hot water and we never run out of it (family of 5, 3 teenagers!) This should save me some money. The unit is very quiet. I have to get up close to hear it, even with the bottom burner on. I don't hear any pops or crackles or other weird noises as I had with my old water heater. This water heater is easy to light, without the need for a long match. It has a built-in igniter and I has LED notifications telling me about the overall health of the water heater. Very nice feature. The hot water heater is very nice to look at, even the plumber who installed mine and who installs a lot of water heaters commented on what a great unit I had when he first saw it! It is beautiful sitting in my garage as I drive in. More importantly, this water heater does the job and does it well. I hope I don't have to think about the water heater for another 15 years or so!
