Great quality but not enough water flow,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eccotemp FVI-12-NG High Capacity Gas Tankless Water Heater (Tools & Home Improvement)The Eccotemp FVI-12-NG High Capacity Gas Tankless Water Heater did not have enough water flow for the bathtub. The 1/2 inch inlet and outlets are just not big enough. I recoommend the 40NI at a minimum as it has 3/4 inch inlet. It is rated at 6+ gpm instead of 3.5 gpm. Not sure why they call it High Capacity and say it is a good unit for a 1 bath house. It worked great though and is well built and very attractive as far as a water heater goes.

you can use a balanceing valve on the leaveing side or the heater that should help.

will this help the water pressure? the basement sink, the main floor sinks and the second floor sinks are all fine. The shower located on the second floor, 2 floors up is really lacking pressure. The water is hot enough but if I add cold to increase the pressure it cools down too much. Not sure how to remedy this! I bought the unit after much research and a phone call. I live in a small 1 bath house with a child, this was supposed to be more than enough for us. help!
