    Q:We currently have a traditional water heater in an interior hallway closet that is vented through the attic and roof. Could a unit of this type be used in such a space? It is a truly interior closet not on an exterior wall. Thank you.

          This tankless water heater not good for all buyers. Doesn’t work if you have shared vent in middle of the house, our vent located in the middle, our central heat in the garage up to the roof passing first and second floor. Our previous tank water heater on the first floor connected to the vent in the middle. When we hocked the tankless vent didn’t work, no matter what we did we got error 11, first we thought the gas source small 5/8 , we replaced with bigger ¾ same error 11. Finally after we spent a lot time and money we figured out the vent issue, after we removed 90 degree connected, worked, but that is not possible, if we keep it that way will kill all of us with carbon monoxide also violating the city code. So please think twice before you buy it. One more thing, you really not going to save money on gas, in fact you will use more gas and electric, and loud , we tried it for one day (with vent pipe off) to see if worth to make it work, but not, just not worth the hassle . Sure works if install in wall and vent goes directly outside. Hope home depot will return it, we spent twice of the purchase price, and they know you will spend a lot to make it work.

            Replaced a Rinnai Integrity model that was at least 11 years old. It had been serviced and still couldn't keep up with the simplest of hot water demands. Went with Rheem 8.4gpm unit as Rheem is supposed to do better at altitude (8,600ft in CO) and it keeps up with a shower and laundry and a sink running at the same time. It suits or small household well. Easy enough install since everything was nearby from the previous unit, just had to line up the new exhaust to the wall and work from there. Would have gone to the bigger gpm model if we had a 3rd bath.

              Quality from over protected shipping box. Down to ease of install and operation. Make sure to pre order stainless 3/5 exhaust heat exchanger ducting. Purpose built exhaust required. Have to order before install. My local home Depot doesn't carry exhaust in store. Once installed works perfectly .

              My husband is a pipefitter and so he installed the Tankless Water Heater himself. We had to buy an additional $600 dollars of the 3x5 vent pipe to reroute across the basement . The old unit was vented into the chimney which is a no no for this unit. Except for that, the price was comparable to our old 75 gallon tank water heater but we are looking forward to the expected savings on our gas bill. We do wish they would have these units in stock at our local Home depot. Do have it professionally installed. We think this was a good investment and have had no shortage of hot water for the 7 people in our house. We have 2 laundry rooms 3 bathrooms and we are always doing dishes with no shortage of hot water.

              I have had this water heater for two months now and it is great. My house has three bathrooms with showers. It provides hot water to all three with no drop in temperature or water pressure. This unit replaced a tanked water heater that began to leak. It is in a very small closet attached to the back of the house. Installation went smoothly because I had researched the valves and venting to use. The unit says it needs a 3/4 inch gas line. I am using a 1/2 line without any issues. It runs fine even with the gas dryer and central heat running. It seems the gas pressure in my house is higher than typical. I planned to run a 3/4 inch flex home run from near the gas meter if the 1/2 pipe was inadequate. Be aware that you must use their vent pipe. It is not standard type B vent. The gap between the inner and outer pipe is greater than Type B vent. The outer pipe draws in air for combustion. The inner pipe vents flue gasses. Because the combustion air comes from the out vent pipe, you do not need a vent in your water heater closet door. I used the vertical vent option because the water heater closet already had a hole in the roof for it. It has a horizontal option too I enabled the water saver mode. This entailed taking off the outer panel and flipping a small dip switch. It is supposed to minimize water flow until the set temperature is reached. I did not notice a difference with this enabled.
