Lightweight for Easy Portability
At 13 pounds, the Eccotemp heater travels easily to cabins, barns, and almost any off-the-grid location. Use it to take a hot shower at a campsite, rinse off after a day at the beach, or to wash your pet. Its compact size keeps it out of the way, allowing for a convenient set-up outside your home for use by the pool or hot tub.

Easy Setup and Operation
With all necessary fittings and adapters included, setting up the Eccotemp water heater is a cinch. To operate, the heater connects to a standard garden hose nozzle and propane tank (tank not included). Thanks to its automatic ignition, burners come on as soon as the water flows, so you don't waste a drop.

Simply turn on the tap--the heater produces hot water within seconds--and set the temperature to a comfortable level. Choose from multiple spray settings to select your preferred water pressure. The heater provides a temperature range of 80 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, starting at a .5 gallons per minute (GPM) flow rate and going up to 1.4 GPM. After 20 minutes, the water heater shuts off automatically for added peace of mind.

Battery-Operated for Use Off the Grid
Because the heater's flame ignites by battery, the Eccotemp is a handy backup water source when electricity is not readily available, making it ideal for use in emergency situations, as well as on camping trips. The heater requires two D-cell batteries (not included). The unit requires a minimum of 20 PSI of water pressure and maximum of 100 PSI.

This Eccotemp Water Heater is rated for outdoor use only.

2010.12.2 Update:

I have now used the L5 daily for over two years (sometimes up to three times per day). Everything I posted below is accurate and the L5 has never failed me. Running it at midnight, in the middle of winter, in well-below-zero weather, with high winds rocking the trailer, high on an exposed ridge at 7,500 feet, I have never had to turn the L5's propane regulator control (i.e. temperature control) above 50% as doing so would raise blisters . . . and I like a shower so hot that I have to keep moving.

This is an incredible shower.

---- Posted 2008.11.25 ----


I have a lot to say about the L5 as I am pushing the limits of its functionality; I have been using it daily for the past six weeks, completely off-grid, and am thrilled to have it! To distill the following details into a few words:

Pros: A Godsend for someone completely off-grid, living under extreme conditions! There is nothing else available like it (that I could find).
Cons: It is designed to minimize any risks, no matter how used--thus limiting its versatility and, possibly, its long-term reliability, though it has functioned perfectly for the past six weeks.

The following notes are in four parts:

- Installation (where I have it installed)
- Operation (how it must be set up under such conditions)
- Praise
- Concerns


I am using the L5 completely off-grid. It is inside a custom-built, remote-camping, clear polycarbonate trailer that was built to test the infrastructure of the Lotus Dome ( LotusDome dot com ). The trailer is currently at an elevation of 7,500 feet in the mountains of Utah.

I received my tankless water heater this morning. It was well-packed and the instructions are pretty good. I appreciated the "extras" that are usually "optional at additional cost," like the shower head, mounting hardware, and propane tank hookup.

But (there's always a "but!"), unless you have plumbing fittings handy, plan on a trip to the hardware store. The threads you must connect to are rough and not cut especially well, something that seems common on items from China, so you definitely need to have teflon tape or plumber's putty handy. On my unit, the hose connections to the shower head leak badly at both ends. Not that big a deal since it's intended as a shower, just an annoyance. And, the shower head male threads are a bit short, so one end of the hose would screw on far enough to not leak too badly, but the other end would spray water all over the place until I reversed the hose. Then it just leaked at the water output of the heater. The hose connection (another nice included item) didn't have a rubber gasket.

As far as heating water, it works pretty well. My input water is at about 50 degrees, and with the water flow turned all the way down and the gas flow all the way up, it got hot enough to be uncomfortable.

Until a slight wind blew out the flame. Be sure to plan to use this unit someplace very well protected from the wind. Even a slight breeze, about 10 MPH (guesstimate), will blow out the flame, give you a slug of cold water, and require you to turn the switch off and back on to relight the flame.

I haven't played with it enough to be sure, but my impression is that the unit won't hold a constant temperature of water output.

Living in an area prone to the occassional bad weather/loss of electricity prompted me to look into a reliable hot water alternative. Sometimes its the little things that matter - like the ability to take a hot shower after days of no hot water due to a hurricane. It makes a bad day little more bearable. Wasn't sure what to expect from this little unit but after nearly a 2 wk wait, opened the box, set it up in just minutes and instant hot water!

Connected a routine garden hose and water was instantly hot - the ability to set the temperature is conveniently located in the front and set on high it was uncomfortably hot so should do decently if your water source is colder than average. For relatively warm areas where the water remains a more or less temperate, this easily brings it to a temperature as hot as you would like...plus a little.

Very easy to set-up/take down. Unit is fairly heavy so will need solid support but overall, impressed by operation. Shower head is decent and output flow more than adequate. It won't take the place of your normal shower head but you won't feel like it takes forever to get wet either.

Unit specifies you will need teflon tape for securing seals so keep some handy. We used to begin with and unit operated perfectly - no leaks. Turns off immediately when water is shut down and turns on again quickly. Impressive little unit and exceptionally glad to have purchased. In fact, like it so much may permanently install one outside for dog washing and other quick clean-up. Waiting to see how this one endures over time...still too new to tell. Well worth the $.
