Answers

yes, mine serves a bathtub/shower and a sink, you need to use the hot water valve for temperature control, turn on the cold water first at a low volume them mix in the hot water, it will keep up with the shower, there is a learning curve,

Answer

This unit is rated for .3 - 2 gpm but you also need to look at how cold the water is being fed to the heater is. The colder the water the lower the gpm of usable hot water produced. I use this only for a single sink which is all i would recommend for this unit.

A dedicated 30amp circuit is required using 10 Gauge 3 wire [ hot,nutueral, ground]. 12 gauge is to small for the amperage [for saftey].

You can order replacement elements from Eemax. They come with instructions and are relatively easy to replace. I have replaced them at my Church.

Will this work to raise the water temp for my Maytag top loading washer?

Asked by HomeDepotCustomer June 27, 2015
2
Answers

No. According to the manufacturer this unit is designed for a lavatory, for hand washing. It has a max flow of 2 gallons per minute. At full flow temperature rise will probably be less than 20 degrees. This unit draws 30 amps therefore minimum wire size is 10 gauge. This information can be found on the Eemax web page.

I purchased this and had a plumber install it. It didnt work but the plumber installed it properly. Talked with the factory and I had to test it.. Found out it was the motherboard, which was eemax's fault and issue yet they won't reimburse the plumber so I paid a plumber to install this unit twice. GARBAGE SERVICE FROM EEMAX GARBAGE PRODUCT> The 2nd one lasted 6months which they would not warrant without a reason. Pretty much just would not talk with us...

Started spewing rusting water within 6 months. After three years started leaking. Disconnected lines looked almost totally plugged with black rust. Mostly made with galvanized and/or iron, susceptible to rust (see above for proof). Need to get a tank with a glass or stainless liner and stainless or brass connections and lines. Maybe a marine unit. Sure it will cost more, or you can by these Eemax junk boxes and end up flooding yer house or at least repairing/replacing the cabinet it sets under. Tired of having to buy junk. What ever happened to high quality American products????????

For such a small water heater, it requires an electrical supply wire size that one would typically never find in a residence. Houses are currently having 14/2 wire installed and this water heater requires 10ga wire. Hence, we had to return the water heater to Home Depot and find one that would work with our electrical system.

Have several of these installed and no problems whatsoever. Works as intended and will continue to use these. They come with an aerator to replace the one on your faucet to cut the flow of water down to .5 gpm for hotter water if your current one flows to fast. My oldest one has been in service now for approx 6 years and still going strong. Will continue to use this product.
