Customer Questions & Answers

what size is the inlet/outlet 3/4 ?

Asked by: Cowman
1/2 inch NPT female. Use bronze nipples.
Answered by: Max5

Can this be used in series with main heater?

Trying to use this to compensate for long wait for hot water without the drawbacks of tankless POU heaters, need to know if it can be run supplied with "hot" water line instead of cold.
Asked by: a5ehren
Yes, Piping the tankless heater in series with the output of a larger storage heater is great idea. The plumber that warned of "calcification" need to bone up on chemistry. After the water is heated,mineral deposits fall out of suspension to the bottom of the first water heater resulting in much softer water entering the tankless heater. Go for it!

How long does it take for the first hot water to be dispensed

Asked by: Sam
For a Point of Use type water heater there are no recovery figures. But you can figure what it might be with this formula. 2.42 x 90 divided by 1440w. The answer will be how many gallons in a hour to a 90 degree rise this unit can produce.

Performance 2.5 Gal. 6 Year 1440-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good price simple to install. no problems light weight I would buy another one
Date published: 2016-10-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kitchen Sink heater I bought this Rheem to replace cheapo Home Depot model I'd installed 3 years earlier, but it began started leaking (from the anode area no less) and required cutting out my entire cupboard floor to dry it out. The Rheem was a bit of a tight fit, but it finally worked and has performed great ever since (1 year later). Our Kitchen Sink (like most homes) is the busiest in the house, so this unit gets lots of "exercise" to keep's good for about 2 min of very hot water, and after that it's just "lukewarm" for dishwashing, etc. But WAAAYYY better than not having it at all, and better reliablity so far than past units I've looked at or owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worked one time only. I am very unhappy at this point. The water heater worked when installed by a licensed electrician/plumber. It was turned off for a period of time and then turned back on. No longer working. Reset button did not help. It apparently never popped out. I replaced the 30 amp circuit breaker just in case it might be bad. All wires and plumbing are tight. The heater was/is full of water and supply lines are open. The heater was manufactured May 26, 2016 and I purchased June 29, 2016. It was installed a couple months later. I am very disappointed with this product. I can not recommend this product unless problem is resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alternate hot water heater use The hot water heater is easy to connect using flexible supply hoses purchased seperately. Both heater and flexible connections are 1/2-inch (female) so close nipples are required to connect to the heater to flexible supply lines and then to the water system. It would be helpful if the amp requirements of each size hot water heater were listed on the box to allow easier matching of the heater to the available (existing) electrical outlet. Wattage is listed so the amps can be determined by dividing wattage by voltage to obtain amps. Maximum amp rating should not exceed 80% of the breaker to be utilized, to reduce the possibility of nuisance breaker trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Hot Water Put this in-line under the kitchen sink so that we wouldn't have to wait so long for hot water. Now have hot water in just a few seconds. For the first few months there would be a small amount of air in the line every time the faucet was turned on. I contacted tech support and they didn't have an answer. For the most part, this problem has diminished to the point of not being noticeable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit Easy to install. One thing to consider: it has a 2000W element which requires a 25A breaker. Be sure the outlet used is rated for 25A. We changed out the element to a 1500W element so we could plug it into a standard 20A outlet. The rate of recovery will be slightly less, but it is is direct connected under a sink and 6 gallons should be plenty of volume for one sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small hot water tank I bought this a year ago to put under my kitchen sink. Takes to long for the water to get there from the home hot water tank. Works great! Does everything it should and has a quick recovery time. I will however buy the biggest one that will fit under the sink next time. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water heater I bought this a few months ago for the kitchen sink. My wife loves hot water for the dishes. This does the trick. Instant hot water at any temperature you desire. No waste of time or water waiting for the hot water to get there. She really loves it. It was really easy to install.
