Product Overview

An SHC Mini-Tank Water Heater excels at supplying hot water as a stand-alone supply of hot water, or in-line as a booster to a hot water tank. It can be used in food trucks and recreational vehicles, or as a buffer in a DHW recirculation loop. It saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed. The small tank and excellent insulation reduces stand-by losses compared with larger tank water heaters. Used in conjunction with a hot water tank it allows immediate hot water draws without waiting for a long pipe run to purge itself of cold water. Lightweight and compact, an SHC easily mounts under or near a sink with its included bracket. Once filled with water, it simply plugs into a 120-Volt outlet. No special wiring is required. A T and P valve is pre-installed. A world leader in advanced water heating technology since 1924, Stiebel Eltron’s engineering excellence and high-quality manufacturing results in products fulfilling the highest expectations of performance and reliability.

Customer Questions & Answers

How many amps does this unit pull

Asked by: Wes
1300 watts (1300 volt/amperes) at 120 volts will draw 10.8333 amperes. A 15 amp breaker is more than enough for this unit. Simply divide the watts (1300) by the volts (120) to get your answer. The only exception would be if the unit were located at an extremely long distance from the source (breaker panel); it would have to be at least 100 feet or more for this to apply. Only been doing this for 42 years so..

Where can you purchase replacement anodes? How often have folks found these needing to be replaced?

I have previously used Ariston POU water heaters which needed the anode replaced every 2 years and still they leaked after 6 years of use. Does it use the same replacement anode? I found those on Amazon.
Asked by: Ozarkie
Replacing an anode is not necessary for most situations. The purpose of the anode is to attract minerals which are in the water. You might be referring to the heating element and that would be dependent on the hardness of the water, use and temperature setting. If your heater stops heating, go to the plumbing section of Home Depot and they can help you with the right element. Also, another thing that might cause your heater to not heat water would be the thermostat; the folks in the plumbing section can help you with that as well.

SHC 2.5 Gal. Electric Point-of-Use Mini-Tank Water Heater is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 19.

We have now had it installed for almost two months and the water is coming out with a brownish tint. We filter and soften water into our home. This is the only faucet with brownish water and only on the hot side. This is a disappointing development as I suspect there is something inside the tank that is rusting or otherwise deteriorating. I did not find any help on the Stiebel Eltron website. I plan to uninstall it and take it back to HD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial hot water. This unit is easy to install, plugs right into a socket, and works wonderfully. I installed this unit under a 3 sink setup. Utilizing PEX lines, it was done in 20 minutes. 5 sec, 7 sec, and 8 seconds respectively to get hot(very) to each of the faucets. I needed this setup because the hot water source is quite far away and a huge waste of water and time waiting for heated water.

However, when I started installing it, the plumber noted that it required an escaped hole be drilled thru the granite counter top. Hence I had to return it.

I purchased this item to use as a booster for our master bathroom two sinks which is located at the far end of our house from the garage main water heater. I planned on installing it under the sinks cabinet. However, it didn't fit. I decided to keep it and install it on the room side of the cabinet about four inches off the floor hung on the provided hanger. After several trips to purchase additional plumbing parts it installed quite nicely and operates as advertised with no leaks. It doesn't look bad or out of place. On several of our trips to Europe we have seen these units installed just as I did. It has only been a day so this is an early review. What used to take a full two minutes to draw hot water no takes about five seconds. So far so good and we are happy campers.
