52 Gal. 5500-Watt 6 Year Residential Electric Water Heater with Durable 316L Stainless Steel Tank is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.

First of all, I had Home Depot deliver this into my basement as well as hire a contractor to install this for me - this review is about the water heater itself. It's slimmer than most 50 gallon tanks while also being taller. It looks great in your basement, though I imagine many people will have theirs hidden from daily view. Recovery time is about 20-30 minutes. The hot water lasts just as long as you'd expect a new 50 gallon tank to last, but you can extend it by increasing the temperature higher than the manufacturer default of 125F. Unfortunately, there are no conveniently exposed knobs for adjusting the temperature - you must remove the plastic plates and have a screwdriver handy to adjust the temp. It's a one-time deal though, so no biggie. Finally, the main reason I bought this tank is for long-term endurance, and only time will tell how that goes.

We opted for the 5500 watt version, and were very impressed at how quickly this thing created hot water (considering we have well water that is very cold). Overall very pleased with the product and would highly recommend. As others have noted, the shipping packaging is terrible. Do not order this thing last minute, or pull your old water heater out, until you have seen this one and know it is undamaged. Make sure you give yourself time to potentially order another, when planning out your project. We opted for ship to store, just to minimize having to run it back, expecting some damage, and we were correct. The first one was so damaged, Home Depot contacted us to let us know they ordered another LOL, so we at least didn't have to go up to the store the first time. The second was mostly ok, the dip tube has a brass fitting on it and is taped to the side of the water heater, and in transit, you could tell it wobbled and scuffed the exterior, but it's towards the bottom so it was tolerable. Otherwise, comes with quality fittings, etc. It did come with "heat trap nipples" that are supposed to aid in its efficiency by keeping hot water from backing up into the lines when not in use, but the instructions were vague on which way to install them, so had to do some internet researching there (some folks also just choose to omit them). All in all, performing very well so far. Plan to monitor our electricity usage online and see if we realize a difference in our bill with this more efficient appliance. While we had our system down, we also installed the Home Master Whole House Three Stage, Fine Sediment, Iron and Carbon Water Filtration System we also ordered from Home Depot - very pleased with it as well. Hoping this will prolong the life of our appliances.
