    Crack,what type of warranty does your product offer?

    Maybe they can back their equipment for ten years so people know where they stand for their $2000 plus investment.
    12 year heat exchanger
    6 year parts
    1 year labor
    same or better than any other heater manufacturer.

    If something goes wrong with it error code tells you exactly what to replace.

    EVERY part on the heater can be disassembled and replaced with a phillipshead screwdriver....a monkey could repair it

        Thanks for all your replies. I always find it interesting how they market these to people by the HUGE savings that will pay for itself when in actuality the payback period is very long.

        One other reason I would have a hard time giving up a tank is due to my hot water recirculating system. Is there even an effective method of doing this with a tankless unit?

        Thanks again!

          See page 34 of this installation guide. Shows a piping diagram with circulation.
          In this setup I would use the aquastat/timer configuration with the optional 6 gallon storage.

          Note: circ. line needs to be minimum of 3/4" with 3 gallon/min pump.
