Hot Water Again!

We were afraid to use hot water when we discovered the old heater was leaking. We went to Sears right away to get a new one.It was on sale but after extra parts, installation, and city regulations the WH cost twice as much! We like the one we have chosen. It's just we were surprised at the cost. I like that it is updated with new safety features and having hot water without worrying about a lake in the garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Water Heater working great

The water heater was easy order online and quick pickup at the store. Wish something would of remind me it had to be transported upright (rented trailer). Installed quickly especially because I had a Kenmore 6 year tank before. Very quiet, didn't know that pilot light was lit without looking.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great features and installation wasn't bad... but

Yesterday we came home in the early evening to find our 20 year old water heater had started to leak (yes, I know 20 years is too long, but time flies). I looked online at ********** (in-store pickup 5-7 days) and ****** (nothing). Sears had reasonably priced Kenmore units, and in stock. So I ordered an up-scale water heater, and we picked it up today. I was pleased to find it had manual pilot electronic ignition (like lighting a gas grill), and good specs. One note, the unit was dented, but luckily that wasn't deep enough to damage the tank. I've had that problem with Sears before - had to return a microwave because it had a corner crumpled before it was even packaged. But when it's something like a water heater, you don't want to, or have time to, drag it back to the store. At least in this case Sears had what I needed, and the ********** and ****** did not.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
