You should see the disappointment when I tell them I can't recommend them for their application. I also think that some people that have them change their use behavior to accommadate their decision.
    My electrician buddy just did a house where he told me they had 10 Rinnai units hooked together he had to wire! Probably could have given them all the hot water they want with 2 properly sized tank models.
    JC,
    You're buddy,ask him if he was not bullshi**ing.This house would have to have a hotel wing.

      I could see this house needing ten or more tankless heaters.

      Ditto, I just lay out the facts and let them decide, more often than not, they opt to stay tank type.

        So far have had one call to work on one. Called the manufacturer. They said I couldn't work on it because it has circuit boards/electronics. Had to ship it away. Received repaired unit about week and a half later. No hot water for week and a half. Not one of the big names though.
