Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cold kitchen hot water The kitchen faucet is the furthest point from the hot water heater. Now, instead of taking long minutes to get warm water. It only takes seconds. A few more seconds and it is hot. Very pleasing efficiency upgrade. January 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's OK The product is OK . It's not immediately hot but the water comes out warm within a few seconds and within a few more seconds it starts to come out warmer and then it gets hot. You have to remember it's tank less. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good unit for hand sink Installed this unit on a hand sink in my shop. Very good unit for a hand sink, Plenty of hot water. January 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This was the perfect solution, and so affordable! This thing was reasonably priced and takes up barely any space. It was the perfect solution for hot water in a commercial space where no baths or showers are taken. November 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's always nice when a product does what it says it will. This water heater performs as advertised. It is a relatively straight forward installation that most competent handymen can do without a problem. But be forewarned, as is true in all of life, "There is no free lunch." If you are looking for a lot of hot water get a bigger water heater. It will raise the water temperature 35-40 degrees at 1/2 gpm, nothing more. October 15, 2013
