Re: Instant hot water by Jerry Campbell
Post New Message Hi Stan,
The brand name of the one we have now is Paloma. The full input rating is 43800 BTU's. I believe it is the household variety. I have never bought one so I don't know. Both of the ones we have had were given to us by friends because they froze. The first one was French made. It had problems with the pressure switch. It didn't shut off when the water shut off. On my way to shut it off I opened the faucet. It melted the insides of the faucet, filled the motorhome with steam and exploded the pipes. VERY DANGEROUS.
I believe with a large enough unit and high pressure they would work ok but in a motorhome with a 40 psi ondemand pump it just didn't make it.
Wish I could be of more help.
Good luck
Ps: I'm thinking of using the solar assisted hotwater heater to heat the bus
by pumping the water thru radiators with thermostatic controlled fans. I read about this once upon a time. The guy who wrote the article had a propane hotwater heater and after studying the situation for a while found out it was much more effecient to use the fire you have than to build another one. We'll see.
