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

Does this use regular electrical outlet?

Or does it need a new heavy gauge wire run and dedicated breaker?

Water doesn't get hot no light on unit

Asked by: oscar
Check power at outlet. Assuming you have power at the outlet, and the knob is all the way up (max hot, the fat end of the icon) and you get no light, then you have an internal problem that needs service.

SHC 4 Gal. Electric Point-of-Use Mini-Tank Water Heater is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, compact solution, but sprang a leak in about 2 years. It's great not having to wastefu... Excellent, compact solution, but sprang a leak in about 2 years. It's great not having to wastefully "run the water, to get it hot". Not sure if it's worth it, money-wise, at this price (considering the electricity too), but the convenience of instant hot water is fantastic. Bonus tip - I plugged it in through a heavy-duty timer, so when I'm at work, it's not cycling on and off all day, saving even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far,so good. This product line is new to the market so time will tell if it develops issues like some other point-of-use heaters, but it's German made and it looks and feels well made with tight tolerances and quality materials. I checked beforehand to see if the heating element and sacrificial anode were readily available and reasonably priced but I couldn't find them at this time. It's difficult to tell from the photos and dimensions, but this unit is actually round. I assumed it was box shaped and was worried about clearance from the drain under the cabinet, but it turned out to be a comfortable fit. It looks like a miniature standard water heater with a flattened back for flush mounting. It comes with a bracket for hanging on the wall. If you take it apart, the directions say to remove the dial first, but you can't remove the dial until you've separated the two halves of the cover, then you have to remove the dial to get the two halves back together properly, then snap the dial back on. In hindsight, the only thing I'd do differently is use a 3/8 line instead of 1/2 to run from the heater to the faucet in order to get hot water even faster. Don't get me wrong, it takes about 1 second to get hot water now instead of 90 seconds and 2-3 wasted gallons, I'm just a nit-pickety perfectionist with 20/20 hindsight. Speaking of plumbing, don't forget the additional cost of hardware. I capped my hot water line under the sink, split the cold water to the faucet and the water heater, and split the hot water to the faucet and dishwasher. 2 straight adapters to thread on to the WH, 3-Tee's, 2-quick disconnect elbows, 1-elbow for pressure relief line, 2-5' PEX pipes, clamps, and some thread compound ran nearly $100 over the cost of the WH, and that's not including the cost of a pipe clamp crimper if you don't have access to one.
