    How to Choose Your Rheem EcoSense Tankless Electric

    Choose your application, ie. shower, bath tub or vanity sink-faucet, kitchen sink faucet or washer. See chart below.

    For example: you choose a kitchen sink faucet.


    See application chart below and locate your flow rate. For example: your flow rate is 1.5 gpm.


    On the map, locate the average water temperature in your area.

    For example: your water temperature (in Atlanta) is 55°


    Use the water temperature and flow rate chart to determine the model you need.

    For example: 1.5 gpm flow rate + 55° = RETE 9.

Customer Questions & Answers

Will this unit work on a 208volt system?

Asked by: Sam1
Yes, but not quite as well as with the full 240 volts. Multiply amps times voltage to see how many Kw worth of performance you will get. 122 times 208 = 25.376 Kw. Still very powerful.

I was told that this unit would not work in Ohio due to our cold ground water temp. I just put in a new bathroom with tub and wanted to get rid of my 30 gallon WHand install this unit. Will this work? If not could I run this unit in series with my WH in the new bathroom?
Asked by: Chrisnow1
As long as this serves only your bathroom and you are not trying to run the shower and faucet at the same time, this unit will work.
