Hello there! Yes, as long as the previous water heater meets the requirements of the i12 water heater. It needs to be 1/2" NPT for its gas and water fittings and vents at the top are sized at 2.5" or 3" in diameter. It can be used for horizontal or vertical vent kits that uses for stainless steel for its material.

Answer

Hello there! You can install the i12 before your smaller point of use water heater for continuous hot water, but honestly, you can probably get away with just using the i12 as it is tankless and does not require any time to "pre-heat" water. It heats instantly. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our technical support team via live chat, setting up a call, or creating a support ticket at support.eccotemp.com. We will be waiting and are always happy to help!

The unit never picked the flow of water , even with several open faucets with an over all water pressure of about 60 - 70 psi. Also tried the relief valve at the heater, still the unit would not pick up the flow. Already have a unit ( different mfg. ) installed and it works great, if it was still being produced it would have been my first choice. Will be returning this and making another selection.

Response from Eccotemp Product ExpertFebruary 28, 2020
Hello there. We are sorry that your Eccotemp i12 didn't work for you. The Eccotemp i12 is designed to activate at 0.6 gallons per minute. If the fixture doesn't meet that then the water heater won't activate. We very much would like to look into this further and help you. Please reach out to our dedicated technical support team via live chat, setting up a call, or creating a support ticket at support.eccotemp.com. We will be waiting! ~ Eccotemp Systems LLC. Eccotemp

Do NOT Purchase this or any of their products. Poor Quality, peice of crap. I owned the unit for a full 18 months before it stopped working. The company warranty is worthless. If you are interested in throwing away a crap load of money on the unit, installation, removal and shipping of the unit back to them. Then go right ahead and toss your money.

I installed this for a 1 bedroom apartment with 1 shower 1 kitchen (no dishwasher) and washer dryer hookups. I live in New England so the incoming water temperature gets cold in the winter. While this does work for this application there are a couple of things to know. On the inled side there is a water throttling valve. It has a littler lever just above the inlet water connection at the unit. With the shower running full blast the unit said it was flowing 2.7 GPM. I had to restrict the flow using the valve until the unit read 1.7 GPM to get an adequate temperature at the shower. There is still plenty of flow coming out of the shower but this tweak was not mentioned in the literature. It also DOES NOT do a 65 degree F rise at 2.3 GPM. With the incoming water at 50 degrees F, I am getting an outlet temp reading at the unit of 111 degrees F at 2 GPM. That is a 61 degree rise at 2 GPM. So this is quite a bit off of the advertised values. I understand there are tolerances and the values could vary a bit but this is significant. While it works for my case, others should use the numbers I am getting instead of advertised performance values.

For this price point best heater you can get. Vent pipe does cause overall cost to rise though. Can only run one shower or appliance at a time for hot water. All sinks running will have hot water. Water temperature at heater set at 133 heat out of faucet is 109 roughly in December. 3 bed 2 bath

This unit is very effective and supplies our homes needs. We are happy with this product for now and have hopes that it will last for many years. We also installed a check valve and clean out valves below the unit and cut off valves going to the supply lines both hot and cold. This will allow us to clean this unit periodically with white vinegar to remove the scale and lime build up adding to the units life.
