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.Read more ›
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.
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...
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!!!
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.
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.Read more ›
