Hot Waterheater

Hello again! My hot water-heater of 11 years is leaking, so I'm looking to replace it. I see there are electric tankless point of demand I can install under galley sink. We live on our boat in a slip & shower at the club. We use solar showers when cruising. Anyone out there use electric tankless?

Re: Hot Waterheater

I doubt it for a boat since they draw a lot of power.
If they use tankless, and we do, it is almost always propane.

Re: Hot Waterheater

If it fits It'll work fine at the dock I suppose. Then again, if you have everything plumbed and setup where your old one is.. Heck $250 or so for another 11 years is easy.

Thanks for the comments! Turns out I just needed to replace a leaky hose clamp & old male connector. Hope I get another 12 yrs out of it cuz it'll be a bear to remove!!!
