The cons

It is for single application

Bosch 330 PN LP has the major disadvantage of serving a single application at a time. It has the ability to serve just one hot water faucet at a time. This entails that all other hot water appliances will be on hold once the shower is in use

The temperature drops a little in the shower if more than one faucet is turned up in the house. Its production capacity of 3.3 gallons per minutes is also low and can not meet heavy demand for hot water.

 

Customers support review

Going by the reviews on Bosch 330 therm PN LP tankless water heater, the unit has an average rating. The major problem indentified is its inability to handle two water faucets simultaneously without a drop in performance and power pressure. The fact that other hot water appliances have to put on hold is equally a big minus.

Although, its ability to retain a steady temperature is an advantage, the odds far out weighs this singular benefit, hence not highly recommended except for situations where demand for hot water supply is very minimal like a caravan.
