I have an artist in gl4 is there a temperature setting on it

Asked by Kelly April 10, 2018
1
Answer

I think you spelled "Ariston" and you were auto corrected to "artist". These units allow you to set from Low through High. The temperature will set between 65F and 145F. First, turn the unit to High (if not already done). If this does not work, the most likely issue is a defective heating element. This part can be replaced. Corrosion from minerals in the water can damage the heating element. This is common to any tank reservoir water heater and is more common with the greater hardness of water used. Hardness refers to the level of minerals in the water and varies by geography and municipality.

I have a 4 gal Ariston and want to install in an RV. Is it possible to install with inlet, outlet...

Asked by Butch June 24, 2017

Answer

This unit should NOT be side mounted. This unit is designed to be installed vertically. The connections may connect using a flexible connection that can allow for the incoming and outgoing lines to initiate from other than above the unit. For the pressure relief valve, take care to follow the manual's instructions regarding its line's amount of drop from the valve.

From my experience with this water heater I would think it would work just fine to provide hot water to two sinks.

What is the price of this unit and can I pick up in store if avaliable

Asked by Lee February 14, 2017

Answer

Somehow you have found a dead product page. I have advised THD. In the THD.com search bar, type in "Bosch ES 4" (do put a space between the S and the 4). This will take you to the active product page. I'm with Bosch and cannot quote pricing or you stor's local availability.

Can this be used to heat water for a travel trailer?

Asked by BRIAN November 7, 2016

Answers

I am using mine under the counter in a "yurt". It was simple to just insert in the not water line and plug in to a regular outlet. If you have the room? I would think it would be a great addition for a travel trailer.

It was easy to install because I was replacing one that failed. It was 4 1/2 years old. I hope this one last longer.

Installed under the counter for the source of an instant hot water tap. Used quick-connect fittings so removing the lines to drain it & change the element when necessary will be quite simple (it has no drain valve). Will install one in a bathroom remodel that's at the other end of the house from the water heater so no waiting for a hot shower.

Good value, reliable, long life
Very easy to install - took longer to clear space under kitchen sink than to install heater. After some experimenting, we set heat a little hotter than the "ideal" marking. Gives very hot water almost instantly, and plenty for doing large pile of dishes. Also serves dishwasher. We seem to always turn water to hot when at the sink and have not been disappointed. The best we can remember, we have had this unit under our sink for around 10 years. In that time, we have not had a single problem with it and have not done any maintenance. This morning water was not hot, so turned control switch off then back on. Worked great all day, had to turn switch again in evening. Don't know if this is permanent or not, but after reading other reviews I think we have done well with this unit. Will definitely get another if this one stops. May put this one under sink in garage.

This was my second Ariston (Bosch) point of use water heater. Works great while they work. Both started leaking after 2 years. The warranty dictates that you change something inside the heater every year to maintain the warranty. I will find another brand next time.

I've now had 2 units for almost 2 years and I have never had any issue with them at all. For better or worse, I haven't looked into maintenance at all (which of course I don't recommend), but each still provides hot hot water, one at the kitchen sink and dishwasher, and the second under the bathroom sink.

The first one had a six year warranty. I have just requested the fourth (4th) water heater, since the first three failed during the last five years. At $200 per removal and installation, the cost is excessive. Very unreliable.

It heats a VERY small amount of water to wash a few dishes then it turns cold. One would assume that I could actually get 4 gallons of hot water but it mixes with the incoming cold and it becomes lukewarm quite quickly. If you are using water that comes from a well and it's cold this will take forever to get it hot. I regret that I threw away the box as I would have surely returned it.

This unit heats fast and provides a good amount of water for light jobs. We bought it to replace a tankless natural gas water heater that failed due to cold air coming down the flu pipe causing the tankless heater to freeze and rupture. We thought that having a small electric unit like this would be more reliable but still sufficient for our sink water and dishwasher. It works fine for that and we rarely run out of hot water. We also love the instant hot water since it could not be any closer to the faucet. However after 4 years we've had to replace this Ariston unit twice due to leaking tanks ( we're on number 3 now) so it is NOT hassle free. Not sure on what planet will the tank last 6 years per the warranty. I've had water damage twice now due flooding. Although not called for in the instructions, this time I've placed the unit in a water heater pan with a drain!
