Tankless hot water heaters



Worth the time and investment? Are they more trouble than they are worth? Brand recommendations?

I looked on Home Depots page and the model above seems to be a low end price-wise.Instant Hot water.And mounted on the wall,the size of a stereo receiver.Pretty sweet.

OK, how about for a system that has to be indoors for 5 bathrooms? Gas, not propane.

You generally need more than one for a house that large. I'm looking into putting them in my new house as well.

I have 4 full bathrooms and our tankless works very well. Would definitely recommend a tankless.

We have an indoor Noritz which requires a special venting system.

Any model has an equivalent for Natural Gas.Looks like the price goes up a little for more hot water output.

Over the holidays, we had all bathrooms running at the same time along with very frequent dish washer & washing machine loads. Don't know what unit we have - its raining so can't check. New house & new unit though. Upgraded the unit during build.

I have two Takagi tankless heaters (outside). Have been in the house 4 1/2 years, never any problems and no complaints.

Sure. I do have a question, though. Our water pressure is good but not what I'd like it to be. I replaced the rain shower head in the master bath to help but wondered if the water pressure was due to the 1 tankless heater or just Frisco's water conservation rules.

If am not mistaken a lot of them are made by the same manufacturer. Yes they are worth it

Had problems with my Rheem. Came to find out that the plumber installed it incorrectly. They need a drain line installed as part of the vent. Since the fix, no problems and liking it.
