Buyer beware
This unit works well for occasional use and especially in warm weather. If you are trying to use it for an outdoor shower or anything of the sort besides camping be prepared to purchase at least one per year. I have gone through three of these each hoping the latter would last a little bit longer , however no such luck. They tend to dislike the cold very much if it becomes anywhere close to cold temperatures approaching 32 degrees you need to store it wrap it in insulation or something similar or take it inside the house where it's warm and keep it there until it's warm outside again. This last unit I kept inside and protected from cold weather all winter long used it again in the spring temperatures dropped below forty, however not freezing and the unit was properly drained just in case. Despite this the unit exploded the next time it was turned on after it was completely drained of water. Definitely will be trying a different brand at this point. So would I recommend this unit? Unfortunately not for anything besides occasional camping use if stored extra carefully during the winter. The unit does work at higher altitudes without wind but will cut out occasionally. What does operate at a higher elevation than advertised. Good luck.

Response from Eccotemp Product ExpertApr 22, 2021
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate all feedback and a chance to help improve our customer experience. We hate that you're not 100% satisfied and wanted to take a moment to answer your inquiries. The L5 is a portable tankless water heater, it is not equipped with anti-freeze components to prevent it from freeze damage, it is highly recommended to winterize the water heater and not leave it outside especially in freezing environments. Kindly remember that although this is for outdoor use only, be sure to bring this unit inside when it is not in use to avoid freeze damage and/or other outside elements (insects, small animals, rainwater, etc) that could get inside the burner which may cause a disturbance in its performance. Please do not hesitate to reach us at support.eccotemp.com. We will be waiting and are always happy to help! Eccotemp

    Works Great!
    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.

    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.

        Pretty sweet little portable water heater. Works great! Only complaint is the water temp control. All the way on low is the most comfortable setting. Turn it up just a touch and it's almost too hot. Maybe it'll feel better when it cools down outside. All the way up is scorching hot, which might be good for something other than a shower, but a shower is my only application. Otherwise, it's a great product!
