Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by ManatiPuertoRico Wonderful Product, Best Tankless Water Heater
What such a marvelous water heater, compact and super efficient. Bought 11kW, install a water filter before the unit for debris protection and ualaah. Instant hot water, enough for 2 bathroom at a time (instalation distance is important). Even at 105F, we still using some cold water to balance temp. Of course, Mr William at Home Depot Hatillo, PR make a great difference by orienting me about needed pipe, connection and pipe. Without his brilliant advice I couldn't made it. Customer Service at Home Depot Hatillo is #1, definitely an A . Agustin from Manati, Puerto Rico.

I live in "Downeast" Maine. I will need to see how this works this winter before it gets better marks. Installation was very easy. I installed it myself. I chose to spend the money on the 25 feet of 6 gage wire in order to get the unit closer to its point of use. Plan on around $3/foot for the wire. I purchased this unit since I only have a 100 amp service tot he house. I have it set to 130 degrees F and it delivers to the shower and kitchen sink. However, it will not deliver hot water while filling the tub unless I back off on the flow from the faucet. I am happy so far.

What does the
Stainless steal heat exchanger do? In an ecosmart 8, that the electronic board and the flow sensor have been changed under warranty, in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico office.
But it keeps interrupting the hot water with cold.

Installed this unit myself. I bought the "sharkbite" compression fittings for the 1/2" copper tubing, those things were a dream. Not a single leak and no soldering required. Be sure you get a DOUBLE POLE 60 amp breaker. It helps to take a pic of your breaker box to ensure you get the right kind of breaker. Better yet If you can remove a breaker out of your breaker panel it will help you match up the breaker style you need. My water heater was lucky enough to be close enough to my breaker panel that I didn't have to run any wire, just used what came with this unit. But you will need 6AWG wire if you need to add length. On initial startup the unit did not work (two drops of P came out) There are online troubleshooting videos at ecosmart. I called in after initial troubleshooting and was told by the service tech that my unit wouldn't come online because the labels "line in" and "line out" may have been reversed upon assembly at factory. He was pretty quick to tell me this so it leads me to believe this is a common issue. I reversed the lines and it came alive and started pumping hot-n-steamy goodness out of my faucet. There are two paddle wheels "flow sensors" that only spin in one direction. If the water flows in the wrong direction it doesn't know to turn on the heat. If you power up and turn on your hot faucet and the LED display doesn't show the temp right away yet the LED's come on when you turn the knob, simply reverse the lines and see if that remedies your issue.

I wanted to install a dishwasher in my kitchen that never had one. The sink was far from my water heater and I knew the dishwasher would not receive any hot water. This allowed me to get hot water quick enough for the dishwasher to work correctly. The electrician and plumber were expensive but I only have to do this once. AND I haved it certified for their lifetime warranty! It presently is providing 128 degree water (I live in the north and incoming well water is very cold.) It does not take much space away from the under sink storage area. I have capped off the old hot water line and it is suppling hot water for the sink and the dishwasher. If you have a situation like mine - I would highly reccomend. I am considering one for my unattached garage for hot clean up water and eventually.a larger one to replace my 40 gallon hot water tank for the rest of the house.
