Answer: 
It is a single pole 30 amp breaker at 120 volts. It would take running a 10 AWG wire to it.

Answer: 
I suspect the 3.4KW will fall short of your expectations for use with 2 sinks. We asked the Bosch supplier about the capabilities. They suggested and we chose the larger unit. We have been using an AE9.5 under our four sinks for 18 years. We purposely installed 8GA wiring on 2/40 breakers (1 for each unit) when we built the house in 1997, so that was very much easier than retrofitting. The unit in the Read More
I suspect the 3.4KW will fall short of your expectations for use with 2 sinks. We asked the Bosch supplier about the capabilities. They suggested and we chose the larger unit. We have been using an AE9.5 under our four sinks for 18 years. We purposely installed 8GA wiring on 2/40 breakers (1 for each unit) when we built the house in 1997, so that was very much easier than retrofitting. The unit in the kitchen has always gotten hot enough with plenty of volume for hand-washing dishes and for the dishwasher, and otherwise general use. We also have one installed in each of our 3 bathrooms, and they each easily support the two sinks simultaneously. We replaced the master bath unit about 3 years ago; it was probably just plain worn out when it quit since it got the most use. So, I guess 15 years is a good run for any heavily used water heater. Incidentally, we replaced our whole-house Bosch AquaStar 175 propane tankless about 4 years ago; it supplied all the showers, tubs, and clothes washer. We do like the Bosch POU water heaters.

Answer: 
I have not seen a 110 volt model that is up to the task of washing dishes, etc. They are fine for washing hands, but you will need a 220 volt model to give a decent GPM.

This sink is so far from the hot water tank in the house, It takes too long for hot water to make it to the sink, wasting water and time. I need a unit that can connect directly to the hot water line coming to the sink to compensate until the hot water makes it. Is this unit designed to connect to the hot water line or will the hot water coming in damage the unit? Thanks

Answer: 
Cold water supply only. In addition to potential unit damage, there is the potential for physical harm if it is hooked up to the hot line. This unit raises the temperature the same amount, regardless of the incoming temperature. When it is installed, you adjust/set the amount of temperature rise. However, it is not self regulating.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 13, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not working only got mildly warm water from it tried low and high settings no difference March 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not heat the water enough luke warm at best Product did not heat the water very much also low pressure March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a money saver I installed this unit in the basment below the Kitchen and another larger unit below the bathroom and threw out my 60 gal HW tank. I saved 75.00 in the first mont on our hydro bill and I dont have to wait 20 minute for water in the kitchen 10 second and it at the tap November 25, 2008
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Only get a trickle of luke warm water The only way to get more than luke warm water is to have a trickle of water, hot (valve) on only. After the cost of the unit, another $100 for 10 guage romex from the circuit breaker to the sink, plus other electrical accessories, only get a trickle of warm water. January 10, 2013
