Same size as the water heater that was in the house for 12 years. Ease of installation, the only other parts needed were adapters that were bought at the local ****** in the plumbing department. The price was right, cheaper than other stores including ********** and ******. All around a good deal.
Great hot water heater. Keeps water nice and hot and I have yet to run out of hot water..
Everything went smooth with the install. However for some reason it didn't work after turning it on so I turned off the power and on again and it started working. Could have been a breaker issue in my house. Other than that it's worked pretty good. The temperature I set it too however seemed like it was lower when the hot water came out so I had to raise it to about 135 to get what I expected. It would also be nice if the drain valve was chrome and not plastic.
22" diameter be sure to measure your space
I just replaced this item in January, 2017 because i think it will last at least 19years as my old once. My old one is the same Kenmore 50 gal. tall electric water heater installed since 06/1997 and leaking not working on 01/2017 so i hope this one will last the same or better then that. It should design for better strong structure to medium tall, which already design but not in stock at Sear's warehouse when immediately needed.
