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.

Answer: 
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!

Answer: 
Yes, it can, but my plumber didn't like the idea because he said that the water from the Hot Water line has already been calcified, and this heater calcifies it again; so it would affect how long the POU heater will last. I originally hooked it up to the Hot Water inlet, (which worked fine), but changed it over to the cold inlet in case my plumber is right.

It comes with a metal bracket so you can mount it on a wall or other vertical surface, like the inside of a cabinet. You'll have to figure out what plumbing connections you'll need. The people at Home Depot should be able to help you.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Of course it depends on how far away the hot water outlet on the tank is to the faucet. On mine it is about 12" so the hot water is dispensed almost instantaneously.

Performance 2.5 Gal. 6 Year 1440-Watt Single Element Electric Point-Of-Use Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74.
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 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 petfect fit Bought this for my 50 foot houseboat little tight to get thru door but made some adjustments Wattage is same at 2000 as 15 gal so I can pretty much heat up before leaving dock and good for quite a while with hot water as needed With it being 2000 watts it's not s problem or strain to reheat with generator

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 service from Rheem! The water heater works great now. It did not work when I first installed it, but I called the support number for Rheem and a plumber showed up within 2 hours and found that a wire was left off from the manufacturer. I was very impressed with the service from Rheem.
