Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

We purchased this water heater because we are a family of 7. With the increased output feature we haven't ran out of hot water when everyone is getting ready for bed.

Excellent water heater for a large home

Submitted by Kirkdk - 4/28/2021

Excellent water heater for a large home. I purchased this due to the flex capacity. We have a home that has faucets and fixtures a far distance from the water heater. This water heater lets me get hot water to the entire house and increase capacity when I need to. So far I have just had to use it in normal mode. I love the Wi-Fi features in the ability to change the temperature in the mode with my phone. I also installed a scaleRX device on the input side. This water heater replaced and 80 gallon water heater.

WiFi problem

Submitted by Epy211 - 3/28/2021

I tried to used the wifi info to use smart features but it needs another part to plug into it and I didn't know this and the part is sold out. We also had a problem with install and GE sent us a new one that works. We reinstalled our old water heater for a week while they shipped it and then removed it and reinstalled the new one. Hopefully there are no more issues and we can learn to use all of the features.

Wish I could return it

Submitted by Erinn3473 - 2/16/2021

They keep asking me for my review so here it is - I completely regret this purchase. Our water heater that came with the house started leaking, so I thought "let's see what Costco has to offer since I always get quality stuff from them". Well this isn't one of them. Our bathroom faucet, right next to the water heater, would always get hot almost instantly with our basic water heater. Now it takes at least a full 60 seconds of running on full blast to get some warm water. The kitchen has to stay on for a good 5 minutes or so before it even gets hot water. The app is pretty pointless. It just lets you set the temperature, capacity, and vacation / away mode. But right now after one rolling blackout in below freezing weather, the panel shows F17 error code (which the manual and their app give different reasons). The app acts like everything is fine with the heater, but it won't heat any water. I had to search the self-help feature on the app, and the description in the app is different than the user manual. If this were any other Costco product, I would've taken it back after a week, but since it's such a pain to drain and install, we've just dealt with it. But I wouldn't recommend this water heater to anyone. Apparently everyone else in the neighborhood with their 15 year old, cheap basic water heater, all have hot water in this freezing cold. But not us with the one month old new heater.

Awesome capacity and abilities!!

Submitted by TiffanyW - 12/28/2020

The ability to adjust settings via WiFi, adjust capacity and use vacation mode are absolutely necessary. We are more than happy with our purchase. The hot water amounts are fantastic. We have yet to run out of hot water as a busy heavy water using family. We do dishes, run dishwasher, all take long hot showers and wash laundry on warm and have hot water to spare.

Good Water Heater

Submitted by JonathanFlowers - 12/5/2020

This is a solid water heater we bought it 3 weeks ago and have had no issues so far (frankly would be concerning if there were issues at this point). But the WiFi connection is cool and gives flexibility in adjusting the water heating settings should you need that remotely.

Great water heater

Submitted by shsound - 11/14/2020

Great water heater so far we've had it for two days. The water heat it up extremely quickly! We replaced our gas water heater with an electric water heater so we had to run electrical line and also had a plumber install the water heater. Electron controls really really nice, I have not tried the Wi-Fi yet because the module is back ordered

Capacity

Submitted by OMGC - 8/18/2020

The unit produces more that enough hot water for our family of five . We really like the feature that we can adjust temp on the go so that if ewe decide to take a little longer on trips that we can conserve energy while we are away .
