Eccotemp was easy to install and worked great.
William F. Quarrier
So I regulated the water pressure down to 32psi, and now it keeps a constant pressure, and a constant temperature!

I e-mailed the customer service address in the manual to ask how you go about a warantee exchange.

As long as nothing goes wrong with this unit, you'll love it. If it fails for some reason, you'll just get the runaround from customer service, and all that love will disappear. This water heater had some great features compared to the Bosch it replaced, and it worked well for a few months. Then it sprung a pinhole water leak in the heat exchanger tubing. The leak was right on the bend in the tubing, a natural weak spot, and appears to just be where the water pressure wore away at it until it broke. My husband removed the unit so we could at least restore cold water flow until we could get a replacement. I e-mailed the customer service address in the manual to ask how you go about a warantee exchange. They replied by e-mail that I would need to call them, because they had questions. My husband called customer service. Their brilliant analysis was that the unit had to have frozen from cold air coming down the vent on a 31 degree night. Really? Inside the warm house? Come on! If that is the case, what is going to happen to the unit on the other end of the house when we get to the actual cold weather, below zero? I guess we get to look forward to some major water damage. They couldn't stand by their warantee, because it just had to be our fault that their product failed, but, hey, they will kindly sell us a replacement at a discount. What kind of warantee is that!?! Buy at your own risk- maybe it will work great and you'll have no problems. But if you have a problem, the warantee isn't going to apply, and you'll be stuck with buying a replacement.

Update: We never were able to get this company to back their warantee, and got tired of arguing with them. We ended up having the pinhole repaired, and that lasted about a month.

I purchased this water heater for my 1 BR efficiency apt. which has a shower, bath vanity and kitchen sink. It replaced a 50 gal. electric water heater which was costing me a FORTUNE in electric bills! After removing the elec. WH and replacing it with the FVI 12, my utility bill has decreased by over 91% including the propane gas used to heat the water! The only problem I had was the fact that my shower has a cut-off valve which I use while I'm soaping up. When I turned the valve back on to rinse off, after a few seconds I'd get a blast of cold water since the FVI 12 only supplies hot water when flow is detected. After some thought and ingenuity, I decided to install a "point of use" 110v water heater at the output side of the FVI 12 (G.E. Model # GE02P06SAG 2.5 gal 6 yr 1440 watt 120 volt plug in point of use water heater); I hooked up the output of the FVI 12 to the input (cold) side of the 110v heater and the output (hot) to my hot water line that I disconnected from the FVI 12...Problem Solved! This increased my electric bill a bit...94 cents a month! I can live with that in addition to the fact that I have a steady stream of hot water at all times!
If you have a cabin, efficiency apt. or a relatively small 1 or 2 BR house, BUY THIS WATER HEATER!! It will save you THOUSANDS of dollars over the years.

This is a great product for the money and hundreds less than most other tankless water heaters! I got it in two days and installed it on the weekend. This thing kicks serious butt! The unit comes on and seconds later you have hot water at the tap/shower! For once I can take a shower for as long as I want and never run out of hot water!

Installation Notes:

All parts needed for install came to about $50 USD, Gas shutoff valve, tee's for water supply tie in etc...

It can be mounted to a wall with the exterior wall either behind the unit or at a right angle...

Important note:

THIS UNIT WILL NOT RUN ON VERY LOW WATER PRESSURE! MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BETWEEN 35-50 PSI WATER PRESSURE BEFORE ORDERING THE UNIT OR YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY!!!

I installed the FVI-12 to replace a 40 gallon, propane fired, power-vented, tank unit. The heater I replaced was very similar to this one: American Water Heaters PVG62-40T42-NV Residential Gas PowerFlex Direct Vent Water Heater, 40 Gallon. So far we are very pleased with the Eccotemp FVI-12.

Usage Patterns

A tank storage or batch heater like the powerflex is very good at supplying a lot of hot water all at once, while a small tankless like the FVI-12 excels at providing a smaller amount of hot water more or less indefinitely. Most of the decision is in matching the tool to the job. In our case, we are family of 4 who take showers sequentially and other usage occurs later in the day. This matches the tankless pattern well. If we had multiple simultaneous uses we'd probably be less pleased.

Installation

I installed the Eccotemp in the same location as our old water heater. The gas line was the same and required no modification at all. The water lines were a different size and, because the FVI-12 is smaller and hangs on the wall, they needed to be longer and end in a different place. All of that was relatively easy and inexpensive, about $40 in fittings etc.

Venting turned out to be the most challenging part of the installation. The old heater used a 4" PVC vent pipe which allows for zero clearance to combustible materials. The FVI-12 uses 2-1/4" stainless vent pipe which needs much greater clearances. A discussion with Eccotemp tech support led me to enclose the exhaust vent in a 3" single walled vent pipe in order to decrease the clearance to a PVC drain pipe.
