The EZtankless Model EZ 101 is aesthetically pleasing and has simple design features that make this outdoor unit easy to use and install as well as unobtrusive if located within view of working or living spaces. We are the seller who tells you the straight-up honest truth. Don't be deceived by others who market similar heaters, this type of draft unit is not for indoor mounting in a residence! This unit will operate on a standard LP (propane) tank as used with barbecue grills. No electrical plug-in is required, making this LP model ideal for use by outdoorspersons during hunting or camping expeditions, or you may choose to use this heater for semi-permanent installations at long term camp sites, small lake homes or cabins, open shelters, barns, workshops and sheds, or any open area with excellent ventilation. Or for those who live in remote rustic cabins and homes with one bath. The intake air is pulled from all around the casing keeping the unit very cool to the touch. For example; As tested in our USA laboratory, this unit can easily operate via a garden hose inlet water supply. This "No pilot light" design is safe and convenient, using automatic ignition to further your energy savings. Convenient for areas where electricity may not be available. The ignition electrical source is supplied by two long lasting "D" cells (not included).

Called the support line and... an actual knowledgeable person answered. (for those who have tried calling computer or telecommunications companies, this is a rare treat). Fast forward... after three calls, EZ-Tankless said it was a gas problem, the gas guy said it was a problem with the heater and finally left. Totally distraught, I decided to tinker on my own, since the cover was already off the heater (no, they don't void your warranty if you open it up.) I simply wiggled a couple connectors and one of them must have come slightly apart during shipping. The darn thing started up and continued to work. I took a long, very hot shower that felt great. It continues to work well.
- This unit has three, not two dials: Flame adjustment, Water flow adjustment and Winter/Spring/Summer. The third is rather unique.. it turns on one, two or three jets. The Excel was totally lacking this and I like this feature A LOT.
- Price: $144, INCLUDING SHIPPING
- Support: This unit undoubtedly comes from China, but the support team is in Indiana and they actually know their product... and they answer their phones!!!
- Documentation: Chinese manuals are notoriously poorly written, but this one wasn't bad aside from the silly cartoons
- Obviously, the fact that it didn't fire up right away was a big one. You might think that they should do 100% QC in Indiana before shipping, but this is a $144 product. Come to think of it, if they did 100% QC and charged $169, it would still be lower than the competition and I would have saved $90 in extra charges from the propane company
BOTTOM LINE: It's a bit early for a final opinion, but it does do what it is advertised to and you can 't beat the price. Please note that what it is advertised to do is to provide 1.6 gallons per minute of hot water, depending on the temperature of the incoming water. If you have two bathrooms and a dishwasher, buy a bigger unit. If you can't mount it outside, get another model. If you have one bathroom and a kitchen sink as I do, it should be perfect.
UPDATE: IMPORTANT FOR ALL ON-DEMAND WATER HEATER OWNERS
I recently experienced the same problem on the EZ101 that I experienced on the Excel heater: I use a shower with a mixer valve and if the water was too hot and I added cold water, the hot water would go out entirely. One day the water flow dropped entirely in the shower and I opened up the shower head for cleaning and noticed that the shower head was a water-saving head and had a very tiny hole to let water through. Since the on-demand heaters come on when they detect a certain water flow, it occurred to me that there is even less flow through the water heater when you mix in cold (less hot water is used). I drilled out the hole to about 1/8 inch and Voila! Problem solved.
I feel the need to add to my review of this water heater. After 2 months of use, the darn thing started spraying water from the bottom. Needless to say, I don't use the water heater anymore. Really wish it had worked as well as the first unit did. Oh well, shopping for another water heater.
This unit is perfect for camping or installation in a shed (for camping it should to be covered if it rains, it seems to me).
The flow rate would seem too low for most people for anything but a camping or RV experience.
If installed on a destination trailer or cabin it would need to be on the outside in an enclosure to protect the electronics from water and plastic parts from UV (something like a big bird house would work). For these reasons, and because it cannot be allowed to freeze, the temptation to install it inside is high, but beware!
The 101 gets its combustion air from its direct environment. If it was installed in a small, well sealed space it could run short of air and start to produce CO and kill you (since the heater only runs when a hot water tap is open, this is hard to imagine. Do you go to sleep with the hot water running?)
If a guy did install it in a old drafty travel trailer with a vent out the roof, he would still need to keep this fact in mind. As well, the vent might cause a draft in his space. This might be ok in a mild climate or season, but it would not be convenient during a harsh winter etc. Could this issue be overcome? Maybe. Would the work-around be worth the effort, would it be fail-safe? Hard call.
I used mine for camping and then installed it on a old trailer.
I have gone through two tank style RV hot water heaters on my old motor home. They use a lot of propane (most have a pilot), and they tend to get pin hole leaks from electrolysis. I was ready for something different, and at 1/3 the cost, I went for this unit (I paid about $130 to the door).
I installed the 101 on an old trailer and it works fine. It makes the water just hot enough to do the dishes or take a good, hot shower. Discharge rate is not high but is adequate for an RV experence. If the intake water was real cold I don't think it would cut it for a hot shower, but it is working fine with the municipal hook up I have (winter time, as well).
It unit seems like a good value so far.
The exhaust is not real hot as most of the energy goes into the water. The size for the exhaust seems non-standard (3.5 inch dia), but a 3" gas (double wall) pipe fit INTO it upside down. Strange. I could not find anything that would fit OVER the top flange of the 101.
The manufactures' website had good videos on the 101. This seems like the best of all tank-less heaters in its class.
Someone below said this unit would not install like a regular hot water heater (that turning on the cold would shut it down(?)). This is not true. You can mix hot and cold. It plumbs just like any hot water heater.
The 101 is not for every application (not for RV's?) It needs to be applied and used with care, but for what it is, I like it.
Why is this unit listed with "RV" in its title? Do you want to drive down the road with this thing mounted on the outside of your RV enclosed in birdhouse? (if you don't care, more power to you)
