Does this only have one 4500 watt element? My current 120 gallon unit has two 4500 watt elements.

Asked by: Rodney
It has two 4500W elements with individual thermostats, upper and lower. Our personal experience has shown very quick recovery even after filling a 75 gallon plus tub.

Can this water heater be used with 208 voltage

Asked by: Greg
Hi Greg, yes this water heater can be used at 208V. There will be roughly 13% less output from the elements at this voltage.If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to TechSupport@WestinghouseWaterHeating.com. Thank you!

115 Gal. Lifetime 4500-Watt Electric Water Heater with Durable 316l Stainless Steel Tank is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good with the new hot water heater... So far so good with the new hot water heater - we are a family of 6 and thus far we haven't run out of hot water.. Product was delivered to store without issue. Installed it myself without issue but this bad boy did take more time then i expected. Just wanted to point out that you will need to purchase your own expansion tank - I saw someone ask this question. The expansion gets installed with the hot water heater.

All the original plastic had been cut off and it was wrapped in a different loose piece when we picked it up so we were not able to see the large dent that was in it! We don't have it hooked up yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This water heater appears to be of high quality manufacture, and installation was not difficult. ... This water heater appears to be of high quality manufacture, and installation was not difficult. The instruction manual is comprehensive, easy to follow, and it comes with parts needed to connect to existing plumbing (except for hot/cold flex lines). Due to the height of this heater, I relocated it to our basement requiring plumbing and electrical modifications. Even so, we had hot water restored in about 4 hours doing all work ourselves. At 115 gallons there has been zero issues with ample hot water supply, something we did experience with the 50 gallon unit this replaced. It's factory set around 125 degrees which we increased to 135 to meet dishwasher needs. The heater is well insulated as the housing remains close to room ambient temperature in operation. Being made of stainless steel, there is no sacrificial anode rod to periodically replace. However, this does make it important to follow the maintenance instructions which call for monthly draining of a few quarts of water to remove sediment. Therefore, I recommend installation in an area that accommodates easy access to the drain valve. Our heater has only been in service for a month, but we're very satisfied customers so far. Packaging of the heater is a negative. It arrived at Home Depot in a flimsy plastic-wrapped open crate with a square wood top and bottom with virtually no protection against dents. One of the thin wood corner braces was broken and it did have a few dents in the housing, small but noticeable. It needs to be shipped in a sturdy cardboard box to prevent damage from handling. To summarize: positives are design and quality construction, stainless steel tank, large capacity, and ease of installation (even though it is heavy); a negative is the poor shipping container. Overall, I highly recommend this heater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from just as any other water heater it heats water noticeably slower than the gas counterpart. the reservoir is no enough for large residences. works for 10 min showers for 2 persons at the same time and 30 min interval for the third one and so on. if you have bath tubs, dishwasher or something else working then the heater is not enough for a shower as well. water heater was installed at mexico city where climate is not a factor. one of the heating elements thermometer didn't work from the start. due to geography a bypass was made for both of them to work. i have a smaller water heater in the US that works the same as this one.
