Water Heating, Tankless, Point Of Use ??

Post by Hrdlx62 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 2:45 pm

Does anyone have any experience with tankless point of use water heaters for a small shop, evening weekend shop. I ran a water line out to my shop and would like hot water for washing. Preferably an electric unit. Any input? Thanks.

I've been running a tiny tankless point of use heater in my shop. No bathroom. Just used for hand washing and hot water for washing parts. Works like a champ but they need a higher amperage circuit.

I had a used one that I installed....worked fine in my shop sink... Was a little underpowered but it was free.

I used a Rheem 18KW for a few years. Two 40 amp 240 circuits. It worked well, plenty of hot water for showers. It eventually stopped turning on. I checked it out and it appears the board has an issue.
