Tankless water heaters are supposed to not like hard water or water with impurities. I was told that since we have a well that a tankless water heater would last much longer if the well water first went through a house filter first and then a water softener. If you haven't have your water tested lately, then you should get it tested before proceeding.joan from zone six said:considering installling one - propane - anyone have any horror stories or advice or recommendations ? are all brands so danged expensive and if cheap ones are on the market, are they worthwhile?
Should work fine for this. My neighbor has one and runs it constantly without any problems. He has a 3 bath, with 4 people in the house. He says it works great for him. I am installing one in my house soon as well.MelissaW said:I'm so glad you brought this up, as we've been considering one too. I had no idea they had them at Lowes. I'll go have a look this weekend. Regarding the output, we have only 3 in our family, and our house has only one bathroom, so we all bathe at different times. I do wash and the dishes during the day when the guys are at work and school. Do you think our hot water usage is low enough to get one of these units? I have only seen Bosch brand advertised, and I'm sure they are priced quite high, but the Aqua star brand sounds reasonable.
