I have a new High Efficiency washer that uses so little water, that the hot water never reaches the machine! This looks like a great solution. Yes or no?
Asked by: Lori
If your washer uses only 2 1/2 gallons for wash and can use a lower temperature for rinse then yes this should work well for you. One of these that I have is for a washer. I set it at a very high temperature so that my washer can mix that very hot water with cold water and thereby use less of the very hot water. Doing that allows me to have rather hot water for both wash and rinse on an older less water efficient washer. Many fabric companies suggest cooler or cool rinse water anyway so unless you need the rinse water as hot as the wash water you should be fine. A friend of mine has an even older washer than mine, so I helped her install two of these, one feeding into the next, so that she has 5 gallons of hot water available instead of 2 1/2 gallons.

I am considering this product for a bidet. I expect to keep the temp at approx 100 degrees for direct use without mixing cold water. I expect probably 4 uses per day at, say, 2 gal per use. 1. how reliable is the temperature setting and is it safe to rely on that for the max temp of the water at output (to safely avoid risk of scalding)? 2. What would the expected annual energy consumption be to just keep the 2.5 gal at 100 degrees without any use? 3. What would the single cycle energy consumption be to reheat tank water back to 100 degrees for a single 2 gal use given intake water at 50 degrees? 4. Does this require an expansion tank?

EM 2.5 Point-Of-Use 2.5 Gal. 110/120V Electric Mini Tank Water Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 79.

To turn on the kitchen faucet and get hot water is such an amazing change after living in this house for nearly 40 years. While I can't speak to the reliability (longevity) of the product, it's definitely doing what we purchased it to do.

More than enough hot water for washing dishes. No more waiting for hot water, no more waiting water or propane. Wish I would have bought this years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury is out I received the product shipped to my home timely. Installed it, but it didn't work. Opened a ticket with the vendor, who ultimately agreed it didn't work. No problem returning it to my local Home Depot. I've ordered another. I'll be sure to rate again once received/installed. One design element I think is terrible is the "over-heat safety switch" that trips if the unit overheats. That feature is fine, but the reset button is on the bottom of the unit behind a panel with 6 screws. The procedure to reset it involves unplugging the unit, disconnecting the plumbing, draining it, removing the panel, resetting the switch, and doing all the prior steps in reverse to re-install. Oh, and cross your fingers to ensure the reset actually worked. Did I mentioned "terrible?"

The Eccotemp 2.5 gal water heater has been the PERFECT fix to our bathroom sink being too cold and now there is little water wasted. Pretty easy to install once I bought fittings for the water hookups. You will need to buy fittings and hose connections to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good booster I used for a booster to the main heater and it works very well. Would have rated it higher if instructions were complete. Contact customer service for size of connections. Use tape for good seal. Power cord is very short. I hope it holds up and no leaks because my wife sees this as a necessity now that we've had it few days.It used to take forever to get hot water to our kitchen sink
