    Whirlpool and GE do not make their own waterheaters. There are 3 major manufacturers, AO Smith/State/American, RHeem/Ruud, and Bradford White. Bradford White is the only one that sells to professional plumbers only. The other 2 sell to hardware stores.

      If you have a hard water supply, limescale will form inside the water heater.

            Electric heaters start at 3000w, thats more than 4 regular aircons once its turned on, if u have an idle roof, would suggest u check out solar water heater, and also pag tumagal na ang electric heaters at nag buildup na ang lime sa heating element, it becomes less efficient , meaning u need more energy, u can google solar thermo tank , the website is helpful to help people make a right decision.

              I have Bosch Electric Tankless water heater and we are pretty happhy with it. Prior to purchasing it, I'd been reviewing the different makes of tankless water heaters and came across some reviews on Bosch tankless water heaters on https://iwaterpurification.com/elect...eater-reviews/ . I also went with the Bosch on my cousin's recommendation. My cousin, btw, is a licensed plumber and the person that installed my unit. I have never had to do anything in terms of maintenance or repairs. So I can definitely recommend it to you

                  I think Panasonic is a good option. Have been using it. It is good and cheap.

                    Hi, I recommend you to use Thermo Tank Solar Water Heater. Well, electric heaters are 3000 watts. Once its turned on the electricity consumption is equal to 600 bulbs with 5 watts. Thermo tank Solar Water Heater will help you to save money.

                  I havent had any problems with my Panasonic single point heater for 8 years now. I like its ELB resettable circuit protection and its in-line water filter on its inlet helps. We have voltage and pressure issues in our place so for multipoints, AEG is great for low water pressure but seems to falter in low voltage situations. Panasonic multipoints need to have its stiff diaphragm springs in its flow sensor replaced to work in low pressure conditions but had no problems in low voltage situations. Both have metal heater casings which is a lot better than the PVC casings in new and cheaper brands.

                    I went to my auntie's house last weekend. Well, I find cold weather to be a particularly difficult and daunting time of the year. The combination of shorter days and major drops in temperature leaves me feeling pretty overwhelmed and defeated most of the time. I mean, it just feels more difficult to do anything when the weather is cold. I can't take a bath regularly. I noticed that the water in their kitchen and comfort room is warm and it makes me feel relaxed. I asked her about the water heater they are using, and she said that they are using themo tank solar heater. She also mentioned that their electricity bill went down and it helped them to save more money.

                      I just installed an AEG x-slim series 3.5kw water heater costing about 7K + about 1K for the stainless water line, 20A breaker and double insulated wires. Damn, that 4.5kw was not availalbe (200php difference lol) but I was itching to do something for the bathroom. Took about 2 hours to complete.

                      So far so good. We only need 60% of the rotary knob and it is already piping hot. I attached the output to the rain shower. :-)

                      Next project: multipoint for the bathtub and I think I will go panasonic this time.

                          Did you hire an electrician to do the electrical job?
                          And why stainless steel water line?
