The unit was self-installed last week and it has been working like a charm. The unit is quiet, quick to deliver hot water, and I see no perceivable difference in flow-rate from old water heater to this new tankless unit.
As far as installation specifics, it took a full 5 hours to remove the water heater and plumb in the new tankless unit. A lot of that time was spent re-plumbing the water lines, switching from the standard top input and outputs on the water heater to the bottom connections on the tankless unit. Additionally some time was spent on the gas line, removing the ¾"x½"x½" tee [input, W/H, Furnace] and replacing it with a ¾" sediment-trap connected to a ¾"x¾"x½" tee, since the tankless requires a ¾" feed and can use 199,000 BTU/H. [Note: I called local gas supplier and verified my meter supported 350,000 BTU/H, so no change was needed.] Other connections were more trivial in my garage installation, as the it was mounted on a wall where the vent pipes could go directly out through the wall. [One note on product deliver; the first unit was delivered by FedEx all beat-up and damaged and was not accepted. The replacement from Amazon came via UPS and the package arrived as one would expect.]
One of the things that made the installation go a lot easier for me was the purchase of the RTG20220 valve kit including hot water pressure relief valve. This is a smart assembly of shut-offs, drain valves and screw-on connectors (plus a pressure relief valve for the hot). In my opinion, there would be very little savings purchasing these components all separately and if separate, there would be more connections and more of a chance of leaks.Read more ›
I wanted to go with the tankless choice to provide endless hot water, but I was concerned with the potential difficulty of the installation. There were three key issues with replacing a tank heater with a tankless water heater.
First, I wanted to keep the new water heater in the same central basement location as the old tank water heater. That necessitated the choice of a "Condensing" type tankless water heater because they vent the exhaust through standard 3 inch PVC drain pipe (about $1 per foot). The non-condensing type tankless water heaters have a higher exhaust temperature and require very expensive stainless steel exhaust piping. This type of heater are usually mounted on an outside wall to shorten the exhaust pipe length. So, I chose the Rheem condensing tankless water heater, but I still needed to run two 25 foot runs of PVC pipe to feed the intake combustion air and to exhaust the combustion gases. Since I had just done the same procedure when I installed the 95% efficient gas furnace, I knew that it was time consuming, but within my abilities.
The next issue was the water pipe plumbing. I have done a little copper pipe plumbing in the past, it was functional but not pretty. So, I knew I could get the job done. The key problem was that the old tank water heater had the cold inlet and the hot outlet pipes at the top of the tank and the tankless heater needed the connections at the bottom.Read more ›
