SHC Mini-Tank Water Heaters excel at supplying hot water at a sink for hand washing or for kitchen applications. An SHC saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed rather than having a long pipe run from a central hot water tank. The small tank and good insulation reduces the stand-by losses compared with larger tank water heaters and the wait for hot water at the tap is reduced to a minimum. An SHC can also be installed in-line with a central tank to allow immediate hot water draws without waiting for a long pipe run to purge itself of cold water. It may also be used to buffer temperatures in a DHW recirculation loop. Lightweight and compact, an SHC mounts right under or near a sink with its included bracket. Once it is filled with water, it is easy to simply plug it into a 120 volt outlet as no special wiring is required. A T&P valve is supplied and should be installed. Stiebel Eltron has been a world leader in advanced water heating technology for 90 years. Our engineering excellence and high-quality manufacturing results in products fulfilling the highest expectations of performance & reliability and our SHC Mini-Tank is no exception.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Water heater works great and was easy to install The water heater works great and was an easy install. We have a long underground hot water run from the current heater to a kitchen sink. This water heater works as advertised providing nearly instant hot water since it's installed under the kitchen sink. Easy access to the thermostat is great since we can change the temperature anytime we want. The install was easy with this 120 volt heater that you can plug into an outlet. It looks like a high quality product but only time will tell us about the long term performance. I would buy this one again! August 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Works ok but with problems The unit heats water as advertised and is installed under my kitchen sink. I like the concept. However mine continues to leak water out of the bottom, not from the connections. So you better have secondary containment under it or a drain. I don't have a drain so I have to continually empty the tray under the unit. The manual states that it is normal for water to leak from the safety valve that limits the temperature. My kitchen cabinet needs to be dry so I am considering returning it to the store and trying another brand. October 1, 2014
