How it works

Unlike a traditional tank style water heater, a tankless water heater only heats water that is passing through it. When the flow of water stops, the heater shuts off. That way, you only heat the water when needed. A portable water heater takes that concept a step further, heating water where you need it.

Here are a few more benefits of Eccotemp's portable tankless water heaters:

No Venting: L5, Luxé, and L10 models are made for temporary outdoor installation and don't require venting.

No Electricity: These water heaters run on regular household batteries you can find at any store ("D" cell or "AA" depending on the model) and standard 20-pound propane tanks. No hard-to-find or proprietary batteries.

Easy Carry Convenience: They are lightweight and easy to transport wherever you go. The L5 and Luxé models even come with carrying handles.

User Controlled Temperature: With a simple twist of the dials, you can set the temperature anywhere from 50 to 120- or 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

No Faucet? No Problem: If you're setting up camp in an area that doesn't have access to a water spigot, you can even pump from a nearby body of water like a lake or stream or a portable water source to your portable water heater using the EccoFlo 12v Water Pump and Strainer.

And Best of All, Your Water Heater Is Completely Portable: It's not permanently attached to one location. No complicated installation or permanent modification of your property or vehicle.
