Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Not worth the effort to install
This unit had to have a heavier breaker installed. You should use the defuser that they supply because it slows the water down and gives the unit a chance to WARM UP. That's right WARM UP. ITS NOT HOT! If you have to fill a pot with warm water and you have the defuser installed please be prepared to WAIT. it's slow. In review, not hot water, the flow is slow, and it's a waste of time to install. Buy a small hot water heater and run a propane line to it and hook it to a BBQ tank. Don't buy this thing

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by radlaw Very useful device
Wasn't the easiest to install. Had to get an electrician. Needed to run a dedicated line. Expensive. Had to get a plumber. Expensive. Awkward to use one unit for 2 sinks with one faucet and 2 handles each. Chose to connect to house hot water. Doesn't work well if flow restrictors used. Have to balance hot and cold flow, otherwise cold flow dominates. Need trial-and-error method to get flows right.

Hot water almost at the touch. We use the lowest setting due to the water is very hot on the highest setting. We are able to supply 2 bath vanities of this unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by screaser Pretty good solution to cold water at sink problem. With restricted electricity supply.
I did not install this personally, but a plumber did as part of a remodel. That said, i don't believe this is hard to install, even i might do it and i hate plumbing!
This was installed on a cold water line (in Texas) during February for a kitchen faucet. It has been cold, ie. the water is going to be cold too, and the water has been the right temperature for washing dishes. No need to cool the water with the cold tap, and in fact this *won't work* because if you turn on the cold tap in a "mixer" arrangement as we have the back pressure from the cold tap swamps the hot pressure and the water heater shuts down.
The flow is perfectly adequate for a smaller sink, maybe a bit low for the large sink i have. I would have bought a higher flow model but was restricted to a 30amp model as a larger one would have necessitated a $500 charge to an electrician to run a new wire (not economic sense for a $150 water heater).
Was considering attaching to the hot water line (the distance from the tank is so great the water was cold when it *eventually* got there) but this is expressly forbidden in the instructions. Makes sense as there is no heater cut-off when the incoming water gets too hot (why? The higher rate models do, is it because they cost more?). If i ran a sink-full of water then the hot water from my tank would have reached the heater and caused a problem. Best to avoid that.
Anyway, i am happy with the product. We've had it running a month and once we figured out about not running the cold tap at the same time we haven't had any problems with it and our dishes are clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kiliki Did it's job
Did it's job but replacing it after exactly 4 years.
Good for heating water at an low use sink like bar or Dr.'s office.
Replacing it because of small leaked. No damage but shorted wiring.
Wish lasted longer then value and quality scores would have improved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve Works well so far
Replaced identical units that were 8 years old. the water flow and temperature are great for hand washing, but don't expect to run a washing machine or other appliance with it. These heaters do a good job if you use them for the purpose for which they were designed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by efk1961 Good point of use water heater
Needed to have hot water in the tack room of my horse barn. For years there was a 30 gal electric hot water tank. When the tank started to leak I decided to try a tank less heater. This one looked like it would do the trick. The 7.2 kw 240 Volt Point-of-Use Tank less Electric Water Heater works well. The installation was easy, and quick. You can see the switch working as the water is turned on, (if you are curious and check it with the cover off.) I was concerned about low flow from my well but it still worked well. Hot water in 10 seconds. Probably will pay for itself in saved electric. Or I would have been saving for years if I did this sooner.
