Installation Requirements For Our ET-32, EP-7.0, and EP-2.4: 

Before installing your electric tankless water heater, it is very important to be sure that you have the correct amount of amps, breakers, and wire size not only for these units to function properly, but more importantly, for your safety.

We also strongly recommend to have these units professionally installed by an electrician.
