In response to Re: Hot Water on Demand Systems
I installed an Aquastar 125 B April 2002. It's a whole house unit with a gas pilot. Works very well but I was suprised (shouldn't have been, I guess) when I read in the manual that the heat exchanger would probably have to be de-scaled in about five years (based on water quality). That will probably cost more than a new tank based unit! The promotional literature never mentioned this.

: : Anyone have information on the systems that provide hot water on demand instead of a hot water tank? Is there significant differences between those that use electricity vs propane?

: Typical Installation

: Read the US Dept. of Energy's
: Report on Tankless Water Heaters
: How AquaStar Tankless Gas
: Water Heaters Work:

: 1. When a hot water tap is
: opened at the low flow of 1/2
: gallon per minute, the cold
: water entering the heater passes
: through a brass water valve
: assembly which is designed to
: allow gas to enter the burners
: only when hot water is running.

: 2. The gas is ignited by the pilot
: or spark ignition and the water
: is heated as it flows through the
: finned tube copper coils which
: are located directly over the
: burners.

: 3. As you change the water
: flow, a governor modulates the
: flow of gas to the burners to
: maintain a constant
: temperature. The size of the
: flames and the energy used is
: always proportional to the
: volume of hot water being used.

: 4. The water temperature can be
: adjusted to produce outlet
: temperatures ranging from 100�
: to 140�F.

: 5. When the hot water faucet is
: turned off, the flow of gas to the
: burners is shut off. Your hot
: water tap is an ignition key for
: the energy used to heat the hot
: water you need.
