Should have bought sooner!
We went from a tank electric water heater to this gas tankless! We can tell a huge difference. Once it’s hot it’s staying hot baby! Only runs when it’s called for instead of a tank heating the entire day while we are at work. Sure it takes a second to get hot but that’s just the pipes having to warm up from not having hot water running through them! We are absolutely in love with this unit!

Need o have more information on the requirements for this to work right. Gas supply line and the rating on this is with water at 65 degrees. It takes longer for my water to get hot to the kitchen because it's the furthest from the heater. Plus I had to get a new gas meter to push more volume to the water heater. Then I had to replace my kitchen faucet to increase the flow so the water heater will kick on. So after I got a new gas meter and had to reroute to gas line pipe and new kitchen faucet and install a bigger gas line it seems to be working good. But it does take awhile for it to get hot but when it does it stay hot. I don't have to have much cold water to adjust the temperature.

I had to replace an old tankless unit after the major winter storm in Texas. I upgraded to a better, more efficient Rinnai model and have been very happy since.

Very good water heater
Less than a year. It works very well I love the fact that you never run out of hot water.
by JackLeg1017
My Rinnai
Heats up the water almost immediately and I like that it doesn't take up much space. I've had this Rinnai for about 5 months now and love it but have had a Rinnai for many years. I had to replace my old Rinnai, which lasted for about 15 years, it was still working but I was doing some upgrades to my home and wanted to have a new water heater.

Don't Expect Instant Hot Water - Expect to Waste a
While we appreciate the continuous hot water the wait to get hot water to the faucet can often be 2-4 minutes. That is a lot of wasted water. Had the product for 6 months. Does not meet our expectations
