Rated 2 out of 5 by This is a good product, But it does not make very hot water. This product does not produce sufficent amounts of hot water. I had to turn down the incoming flow in order to even get the little bit I got. When I called to get help, I got transfered from dept to dept. I never did get an answer to the questions I asked. I was finialy transfered to Warranty. They never did answer the phone. I was on hold, on my cell phone, for a total of 65 min. This problem was on the manufactures level not Home Depot. June 12, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product was not packaged with all the parts TWICE!!! We purchased the first product at home depot. It did not have the brackets included in the box. We spent money on an installer who could not do the work and had to pay them to replace the old system so I could have functioning sink plumbing. I bought a second unit online and had it delivered to my home. The installer discovered that box had only 1 bracket instead of 2 and he had to go to Home Depot to have a second bracket fabricated. I had to pay for that extra part (which should have been included) and my installer bill was triple what it would have been if the first product had been complete with all the parts! I'm totally disgusted! August 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Product does not provide sufficent heat Installed product everything seemed fine but would not heat water hot enough to be of any use May 14, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not so happy consumer After it was installed it did not work at all as far as I am concerned. The water did not even get warm and it should have been hot. October 21, 2014
