    I bought this unit for a bathroom sink. I thought given “German Engineering” this unit would provide what I wanted. I am using it on a single sink. Two problems to remember when deciding if thsi device is for you. The flow rate has to be reduced so that the electric unit can heat the water so you do not get as much water per minute as you would with a typical tank heater. You also have to have a dedicated 30 amp breaker for this unit. If you are not a very good diy electrical person this model will require an expert installer.

    I agree with Rick. My folks have one of these units in their master bathroom. The unit heats the water fine but the reduction in flow makes taking a shower less then enjoyable.

    This unit does what it says it will. Having said that there are a couple of things to keep in mind. you will need a 30 amp breaker to run this unit. This can make it difficult for a DIY installation. You will most likely notice a drop in water flow called by many as water pressure. They are not the same thing but the two get confusing. Flow is the gallons of water per minute passing the head of the shower. Pressure is the PSI pounds per inch if force at the shower head.

    So the bottom line is if you have good water flow before you install this unit you will see a drop in that with the new unit installed. Plenty of hot water but less enjoyment.

    Contacted Support, but no action. Flow rate is not adequate for a shower. Water would get scalding hot we turning facet on again after previous brief use (way over 125 degrees). Unit worked okay for a few months, then Safety Thermal Cut Out would trip easily.

    Maybe its a faulty unit. Poor customer support though.
