question about tankless water heater?

Unless it's just for washing your hands or you aren't in a hurry to fill a tub you may want to spend more $ and get a Rinnai or Tagaki. I tried the tiny heaters when I was in Spain and you don't use much water and the shower isn't a place to hang out. Does save $ and the relatives leave sooner.

    I am considering going with a tankless water heater for my home. It would be natural gas.

    The one I am considering getting is made by bosch, the 250sx. And the only real question I have is that it says .8gpm minimum flow...is that low enough for a sink to activate it? I am not sure how fast .8gpm is?

    .8GPM is a little over 3 qts/min. Get your measuring cup out and fill at that rate. A modern shower head runs @ 3gpm...

    We sell

    Tankless Units. First thing is you need the correct minimum water pressure AND gas pressure. Read the manual inside and out before installing or even purchasing. Wholesalers don't want it back if it's been opened. They are good if all conditions are met.
