It looks like it is time to discard my old 40 lt marine water heater
. It leaks
like crazy and is generally no good any more. Too old. I am investigating options but marine
heaters all start at 500+ Euros... However, I found a domestic heater
with a heat exchanger
for gas etc heating
, and a 60 lt model is 150 euros. So the question is:
Is there a real reason for not using a domestic water
heater (220v\engine heat exchanges) on the boat
? Sure, marine one would most likely be more robust etc, but for the price
of marine water heater, I could have a new domestic one every 3 years for example.
Is there a serious reason I should stay away from saving 400 Euros on water heater?
