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

if using this on a standard kitchen faucet only, will the hot water flow continuously or is there a time limit on the hot water flow?

from the time the hot water faucet is turned on, how much time will there be before the hot water runs out? will this flow only 4 gal of hot water then the water temp changes back into cold water?
Asked by: billie
It will will give you the 4 gallons and then turn cold. 27 minute recovery time.

We're putting this under out kitchen sink because that location is far from our main water heater and takes forever for water to heat up. Can the Steiebel be hooked up to our hot water so that when the 4 gallons gets used up, it then pulls hot water from the main heater when water is run long enough?
Asked by: ResetRobbie
Depends on how many gallons need to be pulled from main heater to the faucet in question. Run the water and see if running 4 gallons lets the water start coming out hot. If it does just put heater in the hot water line under sink. Make sure it is easy to get back out when needed. The instructions recommend descaling the heating element every 2 years by soaking in vinegar or something like CLR.

Does this use regular electrical outlet?

Or does it need a new heavy gauge wire run and dedicated breaker?

Is there a maximum pressure for the incoming line? My supply line does not have a pressure reducing valve. I installed it last night and monitored it for about an hour and it had no leaks. I turned the temp down when I left the shop last night and when I came out this morning there was a few gallons of water on the ground. It appears to have come out of the pressure relief valve since there was no leaks to the supply or hot water out connections. Thoughts? Help? Thanks!
Asked by: Shopdude
I used this device in my home as a temporary backup for my hot water heater,while my home's hot water heater was in the process of being replaced. the unit was connected to my home's regular water line and function great without any leaks. The unit does have a pressure relief valve in between the intake connector and the output connector so i suppose you can hook up a pipe or a hose to handle any pressure overload but in my case i did not need to do this since the unit was able to handle the water pressure from my home's main water line. overall it is a great unit to have around.
