Product Overview

  • Space saving wall-mount design
  • Glass-lined tank
  • Made in Germany
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.

Questions & Answers

Can I use this appliance in the hot water line as a reheat? My water heater is a long distance from the sink.

Asked by: Mike
It connects to the cold water line. You will not receive any hot water from your current hot water source. calculate how much hot water you will need at the installation point and get a big enough tank for that use. These go from 2.5 to 6 gallons. I use a 2.5 at my master bath sink. it's enough too wash my hands, face and brush teeth. The smaller tank uses less electricity also. Make sure you know what you are trying to accomplish and if you can accomplish that with this water heater, buy it.

How many amps does this unit pull

Asked by: Wes
1300 watts (1300 volt/amperes) at 120 volts will draw 10.8333 amperes. A 15 amp breaker is more than enough for this unit. Simply divide the watts (1300) by the volts (120) to get your answer. The only exception would be if the unit were located at an extremely long distance from the source (breaker panel); it would have to be at least 100 feet or more for this to apply. Only been doing this for 42 years so..

Where can you purchase replacement anodes? How often have folks found these needing to be replaced?

I have previously used Ariston POU water heaters which needed the anode replaced every 2 years and still they leaked after 6 years of use. Does it use the same replacement anode? I found those on Amazon.
Asked by: Ozarkie
Replacing an anode is not necessary for most situations. The purpose of the anode is to attract minerals which are in the water. You might be referring to the heating element and that would be dependent on the hardness of the water, use and temperature setting. If your heater stops heating, go to the plumbing section of Home Depot and they can help you with the right element. Also, another thing that might cause your heater to not heat water would be the thermostat; the folks in the plumbing section can help you with that as well.

Could this support 2 faucets in the same sink - a small beverage faucet and a full size kitchen faucet?

I have 2 faucet holes in my countertop and am replacing the current faucet set up with one that only requires 1 hole. I am thinking i could add a beverage faucet in the other hole. Could I install this water heater inline with the gas tankless water heater about 30’ away and branch the hot water to both faucets?
Asked by: FaucetQ
If its only for that use yes it will work but for a shower to little

SHC 2.5 gal. 2 Year Electric Point-of-Use Mini-Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was the right product for the right job, small, easy... Was the right product for the right job, small, easy to install and looks nice, has been working now for a week and doing fine. My complaint with regards to this product is the cost, 11 years ago when I installed the one that I am now replacing, the cost for a 2 1/2 gallons hot water heater was about $ 120, now that priced has doubled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puts hot water where you need it. I got this to provide quick hot water at the kitchen sink. The sink is far from the water heater in the garage and the pipes run through the foundation so it takes a long time for the hot water to get to the sink and it's not that hot when it does get there. The electrical circuit to the sink island was not adequate for a tankless heater so I opted for this heater. So far it provides very hot water right away and, as long as you don't use the water too prodigiously it makes rinsing dishes etc. easier. The recovery time is pretty quick although I have not timed it. Be aware that it has a overtemp/overpressure relief valve that, if actuated will release water. I plumbed it to a receptacle that can handle a quart or so. If the valve should actuate and not reset as it is supposed to...... Well, it could be messy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little unit. I installed two units in two offices. Easy to install - nice-looking and compact. I asked the tenants to let me know if there were any problems and no one did, so that means they're working properly and meeting their needs for hot water.
