What is everyone's experience (if any) with the "new" tankless water heaters? I know that Europeans have used them for years, but when I stayed at places that had them when I was in Europe last year, I was not impressed. They had very minimal output for showers: only enough for that annoyingly-painful, fine, high-pressure spray, as if you are in a car wash or something. Not my idea of a relaxing shower. I suspect I just experienced the cheap ones, so I thought I would ask here.

Hi Lawrence:
We use much higher output heaters here. I supply tankless heaters that can run between one and four showers at the same time, without using those "annoyingly painful" showerheads.
We have gas & electric models designed for one hot water outlet, or the whole house. I even have a gas unit (18"W x 24"T x 9"D @ 235,000btu/hr) which produces 9.4gpm, that's 560 gph. There's not a commercial water heater ANYWHERE that can heat water that fast.
If anyone needs info on these, please e-mail me at [email protected] or call me during normal hours, at 800 851 9891.
Merry Christmas & best regards to all, Brian.

What kind of life time do these tankless water heaters. I have heard that they need to be replaced often, is this correct?
