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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Instant hot water This p-o-u hot water heater was installed by a plumber, two weeks ago under our kitchen sink. Our whole house instant hot water heater was so far away we were wasting two gallons of cold water before the heated water reached the kitchen. Right now we are very happy. We gave it 4 instead of 5 because our previous heater's heating element had burned out. Same model. In 5 years from now we may write a new review giving 5 stars. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy addition to the new bathroomNk This tiny water heater goes under the new bath vanity to boost the incoming hot water line so you always get warm water in 2 seconds without waiting for it to come from 70 feet away at the main tank. February 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Point of use water heater This was a replacement. Installation was easy and accomplished quickly. July 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working Great so Far The first one I purchased starting leaking. We didn't notice it right away until the next day when we found the bottom vanity shelf and contents wet. I did notice while picking it up at the store that one side of the packing box was crushed so I asked the associate to open it and we checked it out but saw no obvious damage to the water heater itself. It was the only one in sight so we went ahead and took it. I unhooked it and took it back out, wiped up the mess and re-istalled it - this time set inside an oil drain pan. After turning the water supply back on I saw it immediately started to create a puddle of water in the drain pan. The leak was coming from somewhere inside the case running out the seams. I took it back out, drained it and returned it to the store trading it for another. The second one has been working without any issues so far. *There has been no burping when the faucet is turned on as described by other reviews. *After installing the 1/2" nipple into the cold water inlet and after hook up to water supply I saw that it was not sealed properly. After taking it back out to see why I saw that inserted into the cold water inlet is a long plastic tube. This tube is not shown in the parts diagram. I can only assume that it forces incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank so that the hotter water above it is used first. I pulled the tube out, put it into the 1/2 nipple and then installed them both as one. That sealed it up properly. *After not being able to find a smaller drain pan to use under the water heater I just left the oil drain pan there. It is a perfect fit for the tank. I highly recommend using something. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job. I bought this water heater to replace a Bosch Aniston point-of-use water heater that failed for the second time. My hope is that the Rheem unit will outlast the Bosch. Time will tell. However, I can tell that the Rheem does not heat the water as evenly as the Bosch. The Rheem has the safety valve pointing to the rear rather than the side, making it slightly more difficult to install a drain line to the safety valve. Additionally, the hot water pops audibly and sputters a bit when it is turned on after sitting awhile, especially overnight. I view this as a minor annoyance and not a problem as such, but the Bosch units did not exhibit this behaviour. March 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flamable Cabinet Picked it up at the store, Store employees loaded it into my truck took it out of the box at work and it had dents on three out of the four sides. Very disappointed. May 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Problems, major Replaced my old Rheem 2.5 gallon (used over 20 yrs) which was very reliable and worked well, with this new one. Installation was fine. But the hot water always spat out when turned on for the first time or after not used for 30 minutes or more. Consultations with Home Depot expert plumbers as well as Rheem were unsuccessful to find the cause. No leaks in line etc. The sinks in the rest of house did not do this. The old Rheem 2.5 gal water heater didnt do this.I unplugged the heater and it still did this when cool. Took it out of the line and no more sputtering. What a bummer. Dont recommend this heater. Returned it. July 11, 2015
