  • A product that works as advertised!

    I bought this product to replace a conventional hot water heater. I live in an off-grid cabin and had to wait for at least an hour each time I wanted to use hot water. (Power and gas turned off every evening.) With this on-demand water heater, it takes about 90 seconds to get usable hot water. What a difference! The only hitch I had was the need to increase my well's water pressure just a little bit. But, I consider this a minor adustment that reaps great rewards.

    This is the second one I have purchased. My first one is designed for outside service. We have it mounted outside our cabin and enjoy it very much. The second one is inside the cabin. I was a plumber for over 20 years and I feel that this is a great buy and have had no problems!

  • Good so far!!

    Have had the eccotemp tankless installed for two weeks now. Some adjustment is required if your water flow is not high enough-not a major problem but one you want to make sure you have a good water flow from your well. City folks probably wont have this issue. Awesome to not have a propane pilot light or having to keep an entire tank of water hot. Should save us enough money to pay for itself by winter!!

  • Not worth it

    I got this because it had good reviews and I figured if it actually worked it would be worth the hassle of trying to change the water pies and such to put it in. It does heat up the water, but only for a few seconds. Not even long enough to run a sink full of dishwater. Maybe a gallon at a time. And forget trying to take a bath or shower. This is totally useless and a complete waste of money. If I could I would return it and get my money back. Needless to say I will be replacing this soon.

  • so far so good

    Seems to be a well built unit. I installed it less than a month ago and so far so good. Be aware that the required flow rate is .9 gal per min, if you have a low flow nozzle on your sink it will not trigger the unit to fire up. Still making adjustments, but satisfied with the unit. The price was right.

Answer This Question

Thank you poppa65 for the opportunity to help you with the Eccotemp Forced Vent Indoor Tankless Water Heater. The system does not require the use of a water pump unless you have a private water delivery system and needs to be pumped out and through the lines then the 12v pump is very sufficient. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 19, 2013
 
 

can this uit run elestric without venting dbeaverson17 on Jul 17, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

Hello dbeaverson17! This water heater has received excellent reviews! The FVI-12 Tankless water heater must be vented. Venting ensures all emissions are safely passing outside as they should be. Not installation the venting would be a form of improper installation and would automatically void the warranty for this product. I hope this helps.

Can this heater be operated with a portable propane tank? What's the smallest size tank that will work? griz108 on Oct 6, 2012

Answer This Question

This water heater is designed to run from a gas pipeline; if you can use a propane tank safely with a similar output to a gas pipeline (correct pressure, connections, etc.) then any size should work fine. Be sure to check thoroughly for safety. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 9, 2012
