Despite the high technological innovation of this model it still falls short on certain areas
Due to the fact that it can supply hot water to three bathrooms at the same time, there is a tendency that the hot water outputs will be limited. A tankless water heater has a throughput limit, able to supply a few gallons of hot water at all times but also at a time. So if you have a large family and everyone’s taking a shower, doing the laundry and dishes at the same time, the unit might not be up to the task or suitable for your family’s particular needs.
There is additional expense you will incur with this unit. You need a pressure valve as the model requires a back wash annually. Unfortunately, the pressure valve does not come with the system, hence the need to buy one.
