Hot Water is Good!
The former water heater was on its last legs and that gave us time to do quite a bit of research on water heaters...and why some are a better choice than others...why pricing varies for the same tank size, etc. In the end, we made this choice when it went on sale and brought it into line with the cost of lesser units available at ******, etc. This water heater has a glass-lined tank, rather than plastic; has thicker internal insulation; has a much deeper drop-rod with a 10 recycling jets (versus only 3 in the Whirlpool, for instance); and is good on energy usage. We've only had in in use for a few weeks now, but the difference is so much better than what we had been experiencing with the older one.

Sears doesn't stand behind their product like i thought

I purchased and had installed on 6/14/12.  It is 7/30/12 and the pilot will not stay lit and subsequently I have no hot water.  I called to schedule service and the earliest available is 3 weeks! I asked to speak with a supervisor, answer....no.  I called back and tried again.  They said I could speak to a supervisor this time, but please hold.  I was on hold for 10 minutes, and then I heard the dreaded sound like I left the phone off of the hook.  They disconnected.  Must I say more?  Sears is aweful

Good value, ok efficiency, easy installation

The water heater has 2" of insulation versus 1" on the old one, so more efficient. The hot water and cold water outlets were opposite the old heater so I had to use Shark Bites on 24" flexible lines. Worked great. I would have liked a more efficient heater but only available in California. Please make them available to everyone.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Heats well but noisy

Does what a water heater is supposed to do - heats water well. A couple of negatives: 1) The thermostat setting is truly approximate. "HOT" is supposed to be 125 degrees but typically hits 140 degrees. "LOW" is perhaps 110 Degrees and really spoils the recovery time. Set to "HOT" and you'll be OK. 2) This is probably the noisiest water heater we've owned. The burner is LOUD. That said, it provides plenty of hot water and the electronic control cycles the burner on and off more frequently so the temperature is generally more constant than with older heaters. All in all a good unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not nearly enough hot water

The first unit we got was damaged, not the stores fault because the box and packaging was in perfect condition. No problem switching. The problem is that 30 days later, we can barely get a full 3 minute shower in moderately warm water. We're trying to get Sears to give us a replacement. If they do, and it works 30 days later we'll pull the negative response - until then - this hot water should be renamed 'barely warm for 3 minute water heater.

So far so good!

We just purchased this water heater early this week from Sears, let their home team install it....so far so good. We can really tell the difference from our old 13 year old Bradford White unit that only had a 6 year warranty. The water is hot fast where we used to wait atleast a min. or two before you could feel it!! Now we have the peace of mind for 12 more years!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Hot Water but LOUD

Hot water heater puts out great hot water, but the burner is very loud. Much louder than our previous Kenmore 50 gal from 2007.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
