Answer: 
I would not try to share a circuit with a dishwasher. This unit pulls about 12 amps, leaving only 3 amps in a typical 15 amp circuit to run your dishwasher before tripping the breaker. It really needs to have its own dedicated circuit.

I am using the same outlet as my dishwasher and have not had any problems with the circuit breaker tripping. My power supply for that line is a 15 amp line with a GFI breaker in the electrical box.

Answer: 
Probably not. These water heaters draw 12 Amps (1440 watts). I think my dishwasher draws 11A. A random DW I looked on line says 15A. When you start DW, it drains and then draws 1 gallon from WH so WH comes on for about 6 minutes. Dishwashers have an internal water heater whether it is Calrod in water at bottom that you can see or one inline with pump that you don't see, and it is going to turn on to heat Read More

Dishwashers have an internal water heater whether it is Calrod in water at bottom that you can see or one inline with pump that you don't see, and it is going to turn on to heat water and you are headed to circuit breaker box!
But you have a very nice switched 20A to your disposal conveniently located under sink.
You can make a 2 gang box with switch that controls adjacent outlet to mount just inside of cabinet door and a "pig-tail" power cord from 2 gang box to one of those disposal outlet and plug disposal in to this new outlet and plug WH in other half of old outlet. Now turn wall switch ON and put tape over it so no one turns it OFF.

Answer: 
1 Horsepower =746 watts or about 6.2 running amps. Starting amps are higher but momentary and a breaker doesn't react that fast. If your disposal is stalled, you will usually trip circuit breaker on bottom of disposal.
I've been doing it for 10? years with a 1/2 HP and never tripped it yet.

Answer: 
The water heater draws 12 amps. The garbage disposal may draw 6 to 9 depending on the unit. The disposal is only for a few seconds at a time. The answer to your question is Maybe.

Yes BUT you need a convenient 120 VAC outlet and the inlet and outlet are on top so you need clearance so hoses aren't crimped. For the little bit of extra bottom shelf of sink base cabinet you get, it just isn't worth it

Yes BUT you need a convenient 120 VAC outlet and the inlet and outlet are on top so you need clearance so hoses aren't crimped. For the little bit of extra bottom shelf of sink base cabinet you get, it just isn't worth it
You can get 120 VAC by hardwiring disposal outlet to ON and using air switch (about $60.00) for disposal or creating your own switch for disposal (about $5.00) that is essentially a switch in middle of extension cord. You mount switch on wall of sink base cabinet so you can open cabinet door and reach it conveniently.
And you need to be able to pull it out every 24 months to clean crud out and change anode.
Make extra copy of store receipt and put in plastic bag and tape to water heater.
WALL MOUNTING Fasten the supplied mounting bracket to the wall. Use screws that are suitable for the wall material and the weight of the water heater filled to capacity (ECO MINI 1= 25 lbs. - ECO MINI 2.5 = 37 lbs. - ECO MINI 4 = 51 lbs. - ECO MINI 6 = 81 lbs.). Hang the water heater on the bracket and pull downwards on the water heater to insure that both “fingers” of the bracket are seated in the mounting slots. Confirm your water piping orientation (hot and cold) before wall mounting. ONLY INSTALL IN VERTICAL POSITION. Read Less

Answer: 
It is about 15 inches long but can be extended by swapping it out for a longer one by a qualified person. It is not suggested to use a heavy duty 20 amp extension cord like those for an air conditioner and I suspect the reason is because there is water involved.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great little heater Great small under sink H2O heater. Have Rinnai at other end of house, works great, sink in guest bath needed help and this is the ticket. DIY install easy. 4.5 stars. September 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Point of service water heater Perfectforthe spot underthe kitchen sink. Solved the problem. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect! Instant hot water for my outdoor kitchen I installed this hot water heater in my outdoor kitchen to provide hot water at the bar sink. It's small size is ideal. I have it set up with a switch to power it when we are using the kitchen and the water takes about 15 minutes to heat up. That way I'm not paying the power company to heat water when I'm not using it. I would recommend this heater. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electric mini water tank Purchased as a feature buy of the day so the price was good. Installation was easy. works great. Installed under the main bathroom and now have nearly instant hot water. Main water heater was a distance from the sinks and this was one solution. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small, Compact and Instantaneous Was looking for something to fit under sink. Worked great. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase. The under counter water heated is a must otherwise it takes too long to wait for house water to arrive. Too bad, not too many people use it, this is the reason it is not that available and my experience is that it hardly lives up to its expectation. Now I am waiting for my warranty document. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, installing hoses is a pain I bought this unit after being disappointed with an under-sink recirculation pump that failed. After looking at the various options and reviews, I decided to buy this unit. Keep in mind it is not a small unit, yet will easily fit under the sink. I was pleased with the size when I opened the box. I had read about how it was hard to hook up the fittings, so I was not surprised when I ran into problems, too. Simply put, there is no reason why you can't screw a simple water hose onto the water heater's top fittings. You cannot. The water heater fittings need to be engineered so there is a simple pipe coming out the top (rather than restricted openings with a rubber gasket on top of the opening) so you can screw on a water hose in 10 seconds and be done with it. I had to go to Home Depot and buy $24 worth of brass fittings to get my hoses attached. See photo. If you use these type of fittings, make sure you wrap six to eight wraps of teflon tape to the top of the water heater's pipes before screwing on the brass adapters. Four wraps of teflon tape will not be enough to prevent water leaks (ask me how I know). As far as the temp/pressure relief valve, I ran a PVC pipe to the other side of the sink compartment and down into a plastic bucket. There is a minimal chance this vale will ever release pressure, and if it does, it should release a small amount of water until the pressure goes back down, and then the valve will seal up again. Hence, a small bucket should be plenty good. I considered plumbing it into my sink drain line, but there were no adapters to do that, so I gave up. The lights are simple and work great: green for power and red when heating water. It heats up water in roughly five minutes and the water temp can be easily set (we set it to about 2 o'clock). Within five to 10 seconds we are getting hot water out of the kitchen sink. My wife loves it! As a final note, this unit really needs a timer, and I would suggest you buy one for it. There is no need to heat water 24 hours a day. A mechanical or digital timer will solve this problem, and I will be buying one shortly and hooking it up to my unit. January 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working as described Overall easy to install and working good. Compact design was a great benefit. July 21, 2016
