      • Works great, installing hoses is a pain

      I bought this unit after being disappointed with an under-sink recirculation pump that failed. After looking at the various options and reviews, I decided to buy this unit. Keep in mind it is not a small unit, yet will easily fit under the sink. I was pleased with the size when I opened the box. I had read about how it was hard to hook up the fittings, so I was not surprised when I ran into problems, too. Simply put, there is no reason why you can't screw a simple water hose onto the water heater's top fittings. You cannot. The water heater fittings need to be engineered so there is a simple pipe coming out the top (rather than restricted openings with a rubber gasket on top of the opening) so you can screw on a water hose in 10 seconds and be done with it. I had to go to Home Depot and buy $24 worth of brass fittings to get my hoses attached. See photo. If you use these type of fittings, make sure you wrap six to eight wraps of teflon tape to the top of the water heater's pipes before screwing on the brass adapters. Four wraps of teflon tape will not be enough to prevent water leaks (ask me how I know). As far as the temp/pressure relief valve, I ran a PVC pipe to the other side of the sink compartment and down into a plastic bucket. There is a minimal chance this vale will ever release pressure, and if it does, it should release a small amount of water until the pressure goes back down, and then the valve will seal up again. Hence, a small bucket should be plenty good. I considered plumbing it into my sink drain line, but there were no adapters to do that, so I gave up. The lights are simple and work great: green for power and red when heating water. It heats up water in roughly five minutes and the water temp can be easily set (we set it to about 2 o'clock). Within five to 10 seconds we are getting hot water out of the kitchen sink. My wife loves it! As a final note, this unit really needs a timer, and I would suggest you buy one for it. There is no need to heat water 24 hours a day. A mechanical or digital timer will solve this problem, and I will be buying one shortly and hooking it up to my unit.
