Great product. 5 stars. Futuristic. Ecological. Think condensing the size. Move to replacing the tank heaters. Be creative with the aesthetics. Meditate on the earth and how you are leaving your footprint.

I've purchased 2 ECCOTEMP tankless hot water products. I very impressed with them. The ease of installation, and excellent performance at a excellent price. Great value. Great to experience this in a USA based company.

We live on an island in Wa. State.
This is our 2nd unit weve purchased from Ecco-temp.
The customer service has been top-notch.
We are now enjoying free flowing hot H2O.
Loving it! Life is sweet with Ecco-temp!

I bought this product because it is one of the few gas fired heaters that can be used in-doors. I wanted a gas fired unit after reading on-line reviews that noted electric heaters are slow to heat up water. I am using an in-door cistern so I don't to waste water while I am waiting for it heat up. My sink and shower is about 8 feet from the unit, and the water line runs through a crawl space which is 40 degrees today. The cistern water temperature is probably less than 60 degrees. The water begins to flow warm in just a few seconds and is fully hot in less than 15 seconds. I have set the unit controls for approximately maximum water flow and minimum gas in order to keep the water from becoming too hot. I estimate that the unit will easily raise the water temperature 45 degrees as advertised, and probably more in my experience. This heater works exactly as advertised. The unit itself is sleek and attractive looking. It feels very sturdy and the cabinet is fairly heavy gauge metal.
I have some experience as a home owner/handyman and I was able to install the heater relying on the directions that came with the product. However, I did make the mistake of over-tightening the water line and broke the brass connector. I called Eccotemp and left a message. Shortly thereafter I got a call from the help desk. I got excellent advice on how the obtain and install the replacement part. I ordered the part and it came in a few days. Next, I couldn't get the unit to fire up when I turned on the hot water spigot. The fault was mine. I didn't know at the time that my propane gas tank was empty. I emailed the help desk and got back a call within two hours, but when I didn't respond to the call, I got another call about 7:00 o'clock that night. This is the first time I have ever had a vendor pursue ME in order to get me the advise I was asking for. Terrific really. In addition to being out of gas, it turned that I didn't have a regulator on the tank. I got very specific advice on the kind of regulator I needed and how to install it.

FV112-LP installed easily in my cargo trailer. With a few adapters, it supplies hot water to a washer and laundry sink. Great backup water heater if the one in my RV ever quits.

The FV112 provides all the hot water we need. We no longer have to worry about the capacity of our old water heater running out in the middle of a shower, or the second person to shower waiting for the tank to reheat. The economical price of the unit compared to the performance is quite a bargain.

Yesterday we received our first order and when we opened the box we were in love with the heater right a way. It's compact and solid. We are sure that our clients will be very satisfied with this heater and could't have made a better choice.

Just installed my fourth FV-112 LP. Can't beat this water heater. Well designed and well manufactured with an understandable manual. Will use this again in my next remodeling project.

Bought this water heater for a tiny house and didn't install it for 4 months after purchase. I installed the water heater and had a problem with the LCD and ignition pack had a wire removed from the harness. I called customer support and they had the parts to me in 4 days that's including a weekend in there. Installed the new parts today and fired right up with no problems. Great customer service and very easy to deal with vs. no name companies. This thing fires up without a hitch and I would recommend to anyone that needed a off grid direct vent solution. only thing you need is a propane tank with a big enough regulator and the 1.07 amps to run the blower off of 110v connection, that you can do off a 12v battery with a small inverter. Hot water when you need it and not wasting any propane keeping water you don't need hot.
