When mine was installed a filter was placed before the water enters the heater. I also have a filter to remove sediment. It was recommended to flush the water heater every 6 months or when the water pressure decreased.

Replaced a 7 year old Ecotemp. The Rinnai is much more responsive when demanding hot water. Unit is set at factory to 120 degrees. If you want up to 140 degrees its just a flip of a DP switch inside the panel. Lost a small part while crawling around under my deck. Called Rinnai and CS answered on the second ring. CS is in GA and they also built a mfg plant there in 2018. Found the part number and told me where to source it. Great CS, friendly and knowledgeable. The Ecotemp was always touchy when blending hot and cold. If you backed off of the hot too much it would shut off and give you all cold. The Rinnai does not do this and allows much much more hot/cold blending range. So far, very happy with the Rinnai.

Great product!
Love the fact that I never run out of hot water. Only dislike is the length of time it takes to get hot water to the bathroom sink furthest way from the heater unit.

Having issues with the water getting cold after about 10 minutes and then it stays freezing for 2-3 minutes. Mostly it gets warm again and stays that way but occasionally, it hits another cold spell after another 10 minutes. Not Happy!

Dislike waiting minutes for hot water. Yet, like lower electric cost without hot water heater.

Great product! This is my 3rd Rinnai tank-less wa
Excellent quality and reliable. I've had 2 of them for 6 years and they have been wonderful. Endless hot water. I do suggest you install them downstream of a water softener to keep water deposits from building up internally.
