We just installed an ECO smart 11 in our camp. It was priced around $250. The main things to look for are what temperature is your ground water coming into the unit, this determines how much it can heat the water and what the output (GPM) will be. Also, you need to determine how many units, such as sinks, showers, dishwasher, wash machine, you plan to run at a single time and the load it will put on the unit. Here is there website. They have a tool that lets you click through some options for recommended units and each unit shows has an application tab to give you details on inlet water temp and what it can handle.

You are better off with a 220 volt one than a 110.

You are better off with propane or NG than an electric heater.

Installing a tankless water heater is a tankless job.

Have one and only issue is it takes a while to get the water hot at place you want it. Due to when you turn water on then it starts to heat and takes a little to get it hot and the colder the water to start then the longer it will take.


And it will need a good gas supply as when it wants gas it wants a lot so line size from tank to it has to be able to handle it.

If you aren't running much at the same time you can get by with a small one. I got a Excel Vent-Free Tankless Propane Water Heater, Low Pressure Startup, 1.6GPM. It runs on propane. Works very well. I think you want to install close to your use if possible. I think I paid $200.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
