Eccotemp L10 High Capacity Outdoor Tankless Water Heater Review

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 217

The Eccotemp L10 tankless water heater is a 10 litre hot water unit designed for an outdoor installation. The Eccotemp L10 tankless water heater is ideal for providing constant hot water to your cabin, RV, workshop, garden shed, and where ever else you would like to have an endless supply of hot water on demand.

Product Description

What makes this unit ideal for many applications is the 2.65 gallons a minute of hot water that it delivers at temperatures ranging between 80-165 F. When you need HOT water, it can deliver. If you need to wash dishes while someone else takes a shower, this unit is up to the task.

Water temperature is set during installation, and adjustments can be made by your installer. While the Eccotemp outdoor high capacity water heater has been tested in high locations (over 7,000ft) it is not recommended in locations higher than 5,500 - 6000ft.

The greatest cost saving feature of a tankless hot water heater is that it only heats the water you need; no more spending money to keep gallons of hot water on standby in a tank, just switch on the tap and the water heats as it is being delivered. The Eccotemp L10 tankless water heater has a battery ignition that starts only when the water is running. The 2 D cell batteries are readily available and mean that being off grid isn't a hindrance when you need hot water.

The Eccotemp L10 tankless water heater runs on propane and can be hooked up easily to a regular barbeque propane tank and can provide HOT water for approximately 12 hours from a 20lb tank - and that means the gas is only being used when it delivers HOT water, so it is not running when you use the cold tap. The fittings are all standard Ã�½" NPT American fittings and the unit is also ideal if you are on a well system or other modified water system, such as delivery from a standard garden water house. It's features like this that make this an ideal permanent outdoor hot water heating system.

What You Get

The Eccotemp L10 tankless water heater comes complete with installation hardware and step by step instructions. Installation can be achieved in ten minutes. Note that this unit is not suitable for installations on vinyl siding. Also included is a stainless steel rain cap to assist in venting flue gasses and also prevent rain from getting inside the hot water heater. The 20 minute automatic shutoff feature ensures safe use, and resets once the water stops running.

Consumer Feedback

Customer feedback on Amazon rates this as a 4 out of 5 star product. Users are thrilled with the hot water quantity with several stating they use the Eccotemp L10 high capacity outdoor tankless water heater in a barn to wash horses. Some users have had initial problems setting the temperature and resolving water pressure issues, however, several such users indicate they found out later that pressure problems were related to low propane in the propane tanks.

A small percentage of users indicate that they were not happy with the temperature or the water and found installation difficult. This is why it is important to locate the tank right where you need it; the water from the tap to the tank will be cold and the further away the tap from the tank, the more cold water that has to run before the hot water can leave the tank. Unless you have very good D.I.Y skills it's always recommended to call a certified technician for installation.

Overall, 18 users rate the Eccotemp high capacity portable tankless water heater 4 star and above, while only 6 users give a rating of 2 and below. With no middle ground in the ratings (3) people either really love it, or don't like it.
