Well Designed & Reliable Product - plus easy maintenance
Have to say GE has got the Water Heater about perfect for your basic 4BR home with 3 kids! I've got the 11 year old cousin of this model (looks & runs same) and just re-read the User manual to replace 1 heating element. Easy peasy. It runs like a champ (before and after). Replacing the element was about a 5 minute job once I had the part, the tool (a large 1-1/2-in socket) and a screw driver on hand and drained the tank below the top element. The User/Install Manual is quite good. Kudos for the GE service number working (humans answer the phone after first 2 selections). GE customer service folks are pleasant and knowledgeable. Great service and product experience. Looking forward to the next 10 years!

Replacement for an old one
Glad to have a new water heater. Installed it myself, so far, so good. Seems to work/heat great, but it's really too new for a thorough review. I'd buy another one based on my experience with it over the past 24 hours (installed it yesterday). If things go south with it I'll submit an update.

Warranty is the best an they stand behind the product.
The warranty is the best I've ever gotten on a water heater. Started to leak in the 10th year of the 12 year warranty period an was replaced at no cost to me. Now that is customer service.!!!!
