Natural gas water heater
It is producing hot water and has not leaked. This is how a hot water heater is supposed to work. Now how long it continues to do this is the question. We have had a lot of success with Sears water heaters in the past.

Standard set up for installation, easy starting the pilot light

It replaced my old Kenmore water heater. I was able to install it using pretty much all the existing pipe connections and strapping hardware. One thing it impressed me is it started easily once I connected the gas pipes. After clicking the starter button a few times, the LED light started to flash every 3 seconds. I released the push button and turned the gas on. I don't need to use a match to light the pilot light anymore.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great

This water heater was so easy to install, with no problems at all. Heats the water up quick. I washed dishes then all six family members took showers with out running out of hot water...perfect.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Affordable, super easy installation

I ordered this model after our old water heater began to leak in the basement. Ordered it online, picked it up at the store that afternoon. I've never installed one before, but with the additional installation kit it was a breeze, only took me about 90 minutes. Fired it up and had hot water within 30 minutes. A great buy, and if it lasts half as long as my old one did (close to 15 years) it's well worth the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Unit- Best price

I shopped around extensively for the best deal possible. I also needed a good quality unit. Comparable units were $80 to $150 more with less features. After reading a couple of reviews here, I purchased this unit on line and picked up at the store. It installed easily (less than 40 minutes, by myself) and it has worked better than our original unit did when it was new. Faster recovery is the main feature that we like best.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Product, Great Price

This was not only a good quality product that has performed without any issues, but I was surprised when I started shopping around that Sears had the best prices by far compared to any of their competitors. Recently I have been very surprised with product quality and price when dealing with sears.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
