I have a Bronco 1250 truck camper. I attached the L5 on the outside on the rear wall and removed the Suburban tank heater. To minimize wasting tank water (10 gallons) I fitted a solenoid valve to allow hot water to return to the tank. To use the system we turn on the pump, activate the solenoid for a few seconds to get hot water to the galley sink, turn off the solenoid and have hot water immediatly at the faucect. No wasted water.

Can I use this unit to heat my Spa with propane small 20lb tank ??

Asked by Nadli April 10, 2018

Answers

Yes, I have been using this for years to heat my hot tub. Have it hooked into a digital temperature controlled outlet and it works better than any pool heater I've used. I mounter it to a two wheel cart and it's very portable. I also hook it up to my pressure washer, wash the dogs with it, etc. An L10 is over kill for a hot tub. It would heat the water extremely fast.

Does it need a propane fuel filter?

Asked by Brian February 16, 2020

Answers

Hello. No, it does not need a propane fuel filter. The L5 is a liquid propane powered water heater and you can use the recommended 20 lb propane tank.

Asked by JH January 17, 2020

Answers

Hello JH! This water heater is designed in a way that you turn on the water and propane when you're wanting to use it and then turn it all off when it's not in use. Be sure that you have enough water pressure to activate the water heater, so if you're pulling from a container of water, you'll need a pump. If you're using city water, you'll be just fine. Also, be sure you are draining and storing it in a warm, dry place when it's not in use to avoid any freeze damage or damage from critters trying to make homes inside of it; especially if you're using it in your barn. If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our dedicated tech support team via our live chat feature by visiting support.eccotemp.com. We are always happy to help! - Eccotemp Systems, LLC

Works Great!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Solves my problem for outdoor supply of warm water to bath my dogs. Th weakest part is the shower head. The "switch" is very stiff and hard to operate so I used another I had on hand. 5 star otherwise.

What an amazing pool heater this has made. With the pandemic we put up a 20ft pool in a shaded area and it warm our waters quickly. Highly suggest as it is an inexpensive solution compared to what pool heaters are listed at.

so far just love it!
Such a bargain was worried about quality and funtionality but its just perfect! My family had this same unit at their beach house and it worked perfect so we did the same. Hubby hooked it up in a jiffy for our outdoor shower and turned it on and got instant hot water. The current shower head is just fine but i talked him into a rain shower head to complete the project.

We love the product. They are large and it makes laying the patio easier and helps span across any unevenness in the sand. Smaller pavers would require a lot more work. The products looks really great. Our only issue was it was difficult to find grey or black sand in our area, so we had to use brown sand, which temporarily gave some of the pavers a slightly brown color. We are pretty sure it will come up when it rains or with a light power washing. We get compliment after compliment. We also went and ordered the firepit from the manufacturer. Which we LOVE! The delivery drivers were a bit of a nightmare. The first driver dropped the pallet and broke several of the pavers. This caused a 2 week delay. Home Depot stepped up and took care of the problem and ordered new ones, refunded me the costs of renting the wet-saw and plate compactor, and gave us a discount for our trouble. I was really pleased with their customer service both at the store level and the on their online store. The second delivery driver was horrible. I asked him to "drop the pallet at the end of the driveway, next to the house". He dropped it off at the end of the driveway, on our neighbors land. I called him up asking him to move it because I was in Boston (on the other coast) and could not be out there for a week. The driver refused, swore at me, and hung up. Again, not Home Depot's fault. I have yet to bring it to their attention, but plan to.

I use this heater on my 40' boat. The electric water heater will take 30 minutes or the heat exchanger will require running the motor. This heater provides instant hot water without dock power or wherever anchored. Flow and temperature adjustments are simple to use. Having no pilot light makes it perfect for low fuel use.
