About This Product

An SHC Mini-Tank Water Heater excels at supplying hot water as a stand-alone supply of hot water, or in-line as a booster to a hot water tank. It can be used in food trucks and recreational vehicles, or as a buffer in a DHW recirculation loop. It saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed. The small tank and excellent insulation reduces stand-by losses compared with larger tank water heaters. Used in conjunction with a hot water tank it allows immediate hot water draws without waiting for a long pipe run to purge itself of cold water. Lightweight and compact, an SHC easily mounts under or near a sink with its included bracket. Once filled with water, it simply plugs into a 120-Volt outlet. No special wiring is required. A T and P valve is pre-installed. A world leader in advanced water heating technology since 1924, Stiebel Eltron's engineering excellence and high-quality manufacturing results in products fulfilling the highest expectations of performance and reliability.

Q:Are the hoses included and is there a T for the cold water? So that the cold water can go to the sink and then to the heater.

      Q:Could I hardwire this to the same line as my dishwasher? The outlet in my sink is switched for my disposal. They wired it so both are switched. I need to connect to the unswitched part of this circuit. The circuit is 20 AMP. 12 gauge wire.
      by|Jan 22, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  If it is unswitched, then yes. It needs constant power to keep the water hot.

        Q:How long is the cord to plug into the wall? Is the output strong enough for a shower?
        by|Jan 15, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  The cord is 43 inches long. This is a tank type water heater. It holds 2.5 Gallons of water. If put on a shower, the shower will have about 1 - 1.5 minutes of hot water. Very short period of time. You would need a 240 volt, on demand hot water heater for a long period of hot water. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 1-800-582-8423 Ext 6 Thank you

          It's compact and fits nicely in tight areas. I put two of them side by side to service two lavatories in a commercial building. They have only been operating for about two weeks. Time will tell how durable they are, but so far they are both working great.

          Easy to install under my kitchen sink. Controls easy to see and use. Keeps water hot under the sink making instant hot water when needed, instead of waiting minutes for hot water from the water heater to make it to the sink.

          Does NOT come with all parts needed to properly install

          Sorry to hear you are having an issue. All you really need is the mounting bracket and then you run your lines to the inlet and outlet connections of the water heater. If you have any questions, please call Technical Support at 1-800-582-8423 Ext 6 Thank you JGMasterSTELogin

          Would work well for washing hands, not big enough to do much more

          Response from Stiebel Eltron SupportJan 23, 2024
          You are correct. It only stores 2.5 Gallons of water. It is not an on demand heater. Hope this helps JGMasterSTELogin
