    We received the tankless heater shortly after ordering. It arrived by courier right to our front door. It was easy to install and works well in our outdoor kitchen. We bought an adapter and connected it to our existing bbq tank. It works very well. Instant supply of hot water.

  • Phenomenal outdoor shower!

    For the past two years, I've used the Eccotemps portable tankless propane water heater in an outdoor shower. I'm able to use it seven months out of the year in its Virginia setting. After feeling the cool breezes in early spring and late evenings, we opted to install treated boards around the perimeter of the shower to block the winds and for additional privacy. Water pressure outside exceeds water pressure of the indoor shower. A great place for washing the dog in warmer months, as well. Though this Boston terrier doesn't like baths of any kind, even he seems to prefer an outdoor shower! I'll gladly replace this shower with one of the same in the future when this runs its course.

    I have purchases 3 of these, 2 as gifts. I wanted an outdoor shower for after pool use and this was great. It can get a a bit too hot in a Texas summer (entering water temp already pretty high.), but I'm guessing if I work with it, I can adjust the temp I set up myself with no problems. WAAAAAAY better than the $350 Bosch that I bought years ago that had major pilot issues. The battery start up saves a ton on propane (no pilot constantly running.)

  • Amazing! Works beautifully!
    Verified Purchase

    This tankless water heater works beautifully. It was very easy to set up. It is very difficult to turn on the switch on the shower handset, but this may be because we have a very long hose connected to it, causing too much water pressure against switch...not certain. We still highly recommend this unit and cannot wait to take it on a camping trip!

  • Q:

    "We are going to use this in our tiny house will it work for that "

    • A:

      I though about using it for a tiny house Airbnb we have (300' made from 2x 20' shipping containers), but realized it will not handle more then one hot water outlet at a time and the auto shutoff could be problematic. There's no way it could handle hot water in a shower AND the kitchen sink, for example. I upgraded to a Rinnai V53eP and have not been disappointed. No auto shut off and works amazing! A search of that model will show you who sells it. My supply place was free shipping, no sales tax, like Overstock, and looks like it has a coupon on Rinnai right now.

  • Q:

    "Am I correct in assuming there is a pilot lite that runs continuously and does it need to be enclosed outside due to the elements? Thanks"

    • A:

      Hello masabe_99, this has a 20 minute auto shut off. The heater's flame ignites by 2 D cell batteries. This does not need to be enclosed outdoors. Have a great day!

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      This water heater will really help with our camping that we do every summer. looks very small and practical

    "Is it possible to use this in a fifth wheel trailer?"

    • A:

      Hello ninjenise, since it is portable you should have no issues using it with a 5th wheel trailer. I hope that helps. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Q:

    "Is there a conversion kit available to allow this product to run on natural gas instead of propane?"

    • A:

      Hello crazykevdog, unfortunately I could not locate a conversion kit for this item. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • A:

      Check with you local NG company/suppliers to see what they have. It's usually just a case of changing the gas jet. I got a kit for a barbecue that was easy to install and it's worked like a champ for years now.
