Common Mistakes that all do

Most people deserve hot water in a higher GPM, even having the incoming water temperature quite low. It is sarcastic. EcoSmart has substantial information about the capacity of this unit. However, we often make mistakes by not getting our heads straight around that wealthy indication. For example, if you want 4-Gallon water per minute, the best effort this water heater can ever do is heat the water to 46-degree. Alternatively, if you wish to 110-degree shower at 4-Gallon per minute, then you must have to ensure that the temperature of incoming water is 64-degree. As already you have summarized the relationship between the flow rate and the heat, so to solve those above-mentioned problems, you will need a low flow head shower, which might cost like $20.

Some reviewers mentioned that their required hot water is down to a trickle. It is another mistake that we forget to gather knowledge about the product’s infrastructure. ECO27 has several heat exchangers inside the heater. These heat exchangers are made of 3 copper pipes, crossly connected in series with about ½’’ diameter copper section. So, there could be a flow restriction but nothing radical as we think. Clean the pipes or replace the valves. Doing so you will not able to observe a loss of flow anywhere in your home.

Cons

Sometimes the outgoing water temperature remains the same as the cold-water supply.

Solution: Make sure that the breakers at the main electric panel are on. It also occurs when water flow rate is too low. Water flow rate should be 0.3-Gallon per minute.
