Re: Hot Water at camp

You got a well? Because it seems like the well water up there is rusty. Not sure how this would effect the on demand unit.

Re: Hot Water at camp

I would be concerned about draining it so it doesn't freeze. Hopefully it is built so it will drain completely and not leave some water in the coils

I actually contacted a manufacture about this same concern and have not her back from them yet. If you get info on this please let me know.

Re: Hot Water at camp

I have an electric one at the house and a gas one at the cabin. I have a filter on the line and have had no problems. My water at camp comes from a spring. My pump [censored] all of the water out of the line when I turn it off.
