5.5 GPM is low - don't expect to be able to have 2 family members using hot water at the same time.

Why not when each showerhead is 2.5gpm max.

Never seen this much good reviews on a tankless heater, I didn't even debate it, bought one for my house, perfect as I wanted to have more space while finishing my basement.

Waiting on the pickup ready email :).

This is the amazon review link:

It is rated 5.5 GPM for 70F temp rise, and you only need 2.5 GPM max per shower head. The flow goes up to 10 GPM for 30 F temp rise, so you can have 4 showers running at the same time if you are using that rise -Mostly in summer time-.

Anyone know how much the installation cost would be? I currently have a standard gas water heater that came with my house and is sadly rented. This would be an upgrade.

I think there is also a rebate with enbridge when you upgrade your water heater.

Lots of variables in play here, but you can count on it being around $1000 depending on said variables.

I just had a similar rheem 199k btu unit installed. Very happy, can confirm two showers at same time during winter. I am more limited by the half inch input water pipe than anything else. Only 2-3 second additional delay compared to a tank and only when initially running the hot.

Installation is very expensive on these though. They require 3/4" gas input, not half inch like a normal tank. This usually means you need at least 1 1/4" from the gas meter. 3" venting is fairly expensive if you need to install away from the exhaust.

Figure $1500-$2000 for most installs (Ottawa area) where you are replacing a tank. You should save $1000+ on gas over 10 years.

Plus the cost of renting if you're currently renting the tank.

Is easy to buy parts for this if anything go wrong?

I already has a Navien tankless water heater.
I like to buy this one as spare.

I've just purchased and would appreciate any suggestions on installers in the Ottawa area. Thanks. Also what to expect for installation cost.

Anybody know anything about the Loews installer program? I have a local trusted heating company, I'm inclined to use them, but if I can keep this tank until Loews offers 20% off installation, would be great to save some $, plus presumably Lowes would send the same installer if the unit malfunctioned, whereas my own company would just be like, "talk to Loews". Anyone have any feedback on that?

Thanks for this OP, just bought an old home which had a Reliance rental unit in it, those things are way overpriced. Fortunately I remembered to exclude the water heater from the sale contract, keep that in mind if you buy a house, check to see if the tank (or anything else) is a rental and if it is, tell the seller you don't want it. Reliance will pick it up for free after you get a new one installed, but only if it was excluded in the sales agreement, otherwise they'll charge, or try to.

Can anyone recommend an installer? I'm tempted to get this.
