Not a bad unit over all, but beware it will make your CFL and incandescent light bulbs flicker. Within the first month of installing this unit I had 5 incandescent bulbs blow out. My normal house voltage is around 124.3 to 124.6. But when the unit is running it drops to 123 and fluctuates a lot between 123.2 to 123.8 which causes the lights to flicker.
The Powerstar unit I had before the eco smart didn't have that issue.

We have 5 adults and 3 children in one home..... Never without hot water!! Our water heater has only been installed for 6 weeks so I am waiting on a full months power bill to see how it has been affected. This product so far has delivered all of its promises and exceeded many. I do realize temperature of ground water can be a factor so just for the record, we are in the upstate of S.C..... Love not having to time out showers!!!

They gave me a 2 week window where it would be delivered in, and it came in 6 days, I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't installed the product yet but thanks for the help ordering it in store and for the extra fast delivery

After burning 3 TITANS (purchased locally in Miami) I decided to sunk my cost and go for the best out of the shelf in Home Depot. I had to re do the Water pipe intake and flow from 1/2 Inch to 3/4 to fit into this unit AND place a separate breaker box to load balance my home's 400 Amps into dedicating 125 Amps for this unit to work at max capacity when needed... also rewire 3 AWG instead of the previous 2 - so all in all I spent 2.5-3 X times more over the cost of the unit to make it work properly - BEST INVESTMENT EVER. There is no more light flickering when hot water is flowing and I can have multiple faucets/showers running without compromising water temperature.

Pulling the wires was the hardest part but after that the rest was easy. Oh wait taking the old 80 gallon tank was the second hardest part since I didn't wait for it to cool to drain it. But wiring the tankless in and running the plumbing was easy. I did put in a way to clean it with two other valves and some T-Brass. All in all a two week job for me to do it all even with fixing the dry wall.
I will warn others it takes some getting use to NOT mixing cold water in showers since we have it set to 110 in DFW Texas area. No fears of getting scalded, after changing that habit it works great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Goos Ok... But Not What We Hoped
The EcoSmart 27 kW product advertisement states that it is capable of supporting two shower heads at 1.5 gpm with an inlet temperature of 47 degrees. Unfortunately this was not the case, based on our experience during the winter months. We live in Northern Virginia and although we have not measured the inlet temperature, both shower heads are rated at 1.5 gpm. During showers, if the second shower head is introduced, the flow has to be cut back by half on the second shower head, even if the temperature on the EcoSmart is set to the maximum setting. Based on our experience, it actually supports 1.5 shower heads as opposed to the 2 it claims. Some thoughts to consider: This was installed by a Master Electrician and both shower heads are rated at 1.5 gpm / each. During the summer months there are no issues with heating the water but winter months pose a challenge. We live just south of Washington DC.

When my old gas water heater tank began leaking, I was so worried "How can I replace it myself?". After browsing Home Depot web site, I read the review of other home owner about the EcoSmart on-demand electric heater, I decided, I am going for it. Connect the unit to the existing plumbing is easy, running the 3 pair of #8 wire plus ground wire to the electric load panel to the back side of the house is a challenge. I managed to pull them through a 1 1/4 inches PVC conduit and terminated to 3 DP 40Amp breakers. I initially set the temperature to 110F but my bath room upstairs has a long plumbing to it, so I settled it to 125F and it has been working wonderfully, my daughter is not complaining of running out of hot water any more.
