Had just about made up my mind to purchase either a "SETS" or "Envirtech" electric tankless water heater when my local plumber suggested a H.H2O Thermo-Conductive Water heater. On the H2O a copper coil sits in small tank of hot water and cold water runs thru copper coil to heat. He says it almost saves as much money as a tankles but will be much easier to maintain. Also the cost is $700(Tankless) vs. $300 for the other(before installation). Has anyone out there had any experience with the H.H2O? Would appreciate any comments.

Thanks I appreciate your reply. The water heater I have now has lasted for 17 years. So I don't have burn out element problems. So it seems like 6 of one and a half dozen of another about which one I get. I also heard of a standard water heater called the Marathon that has a lifetime warranty and is made of plastic so it won't rust. Anyway

Thanks for the input again...Mike

I think your right. With all the modifications needed to make the tankless work I could pay for a lot of hot water. I would need to get a 50 gallon tank though. My current tank is in the crawl space under the house and won't hold an 85 gallon tank. And there is no room in the house for it.

Thanks for the advice! Mike

I have a 40 gallon in there now, so a 50 would be good enough. Once in awhile we run out when my teenage daughter tries to shower the same time as my youngest and the washer is going (ha ha)
Thanks.. Mike
