Try this information on a "Bosch" heaterSpecifications -- Bosch WR and W Series Water Heaters
These instantaneous water heaters are available for natural gas or propane -- providing hot water in seconds for as long as needed. They can be installed as a central system or at point of use for specific requirements. All units are wall hung, saving valuable floor space.

Since there is no water storage in the unit, no tank-type heater can match them for economy of operation or ease of installation. Units may be connected in parallel to accommodate flow rates which exceed the capacity of a single heater.
