Product Overview

AQM tankless water heaters heat water instantaneously and endlessly at 99% efficiency as it flows through the unit. Unlike water heaters with a tank, they save energy because they have no stand-by energy losses. AQM tankless point-of-use models excel at supplying warm water at a constant temperature for hand washing at a sink but must be carefully matched to the flow rate of the sink to operate properly. They are ideal for residential or commercial hand-washing sink applications. The sleek, small design allows installation with the unit visible. Venting is unnecessary. Refer to the Sizing Guide and Temperature Rise Chart to determine the correct size you need. Call AquaPower at 800.582.2213 if you have any sizing questions. Meticulously engineered and carefully manufactured, AQM tankless water heaters are designed for years of trouble-free and energy-saving usage.
  • AQM 3-1 is designed to provide warm water around 90° to 100° for hand washing at a standard low-flow (0.5 GPM) lavatory sink
  • Requires hard wiring to 120-Volt electric service with 1 dedicated 25 Amp breaker and 10-Gauge copper wiring
  • Provides endless warm water for hand washing at 99% efficiency and saves energy because water is heated only when needed
  • Important to carefully match the AQM model to the flow rate of the sink
  • Engineered in Germany with the best materials to provide years of trouble-free service
  • A special flow switch control protects the nichrome heating element from failure caused by dry-firing
  • Can be installed above or below the sink with water fittings pointing either up or down
  • Not designed for use at a kitchen sink or a shower, or as a booster heater for any application
  • Professional installation recommended
  • 5-year leakage and 1-year parts residential and commercial warranty against defects in workmanship and materials under normal use

Questions & Answers

Currently it takes about 2 minutes for hot water to reach my sink from the gas hot water heater. ...

Currently it takes about 2 minutes for hot water to reach my sink from the gas hot water heater. So can I insert it at the sink using the hot water plumbing that is in-line with current gas water heater to improve - to heat water in the pipes that has cooled since last access? I would think this is should work - do not understand why it would be designed any other way. Once the gas heated water arrives, all it has to do is allow passage of the water - no longer needing to heat it. Average temp.of sink water would no longer include the 2 minutes of cold water - RIGHT?
Asked by: MyMothersDaughtersBrother
This unit based on the electrical size will only heat to about 100 degrees. This 100 degree number is based on your current incoming cold water main temperature. Will it help...yes, but wouldn't a whole house recirculating system work better like this one?https://www.homedepot.com/p/Watts-Hot-Water-Recirculating-System-with-Built-In-Timer-0955800/100426993

It produces water that is just slightly above room temperature, definitely not warm enough to wash hands effectively. The water flow is greatly reduced compared to the amount of water going into the unit. Maybe a pint of water a minute output. Very disappointed with the unit.
