New build in Ft Worth TX. Plumber wants to use Rheem propane tankless system. I like what I have read about Takagi. What system is better? Single story, well system and 42 days a year of temps. at or below 36 degrees F. In addition we are considering a "full" encapsulation foam insulation which would create the need for a fresh air exchanger, I am assuming that tankless systems benefit from direct venting. Please chime in. JD

what is your well water like anyway???

have you had it tested for mineral deposits???

have you considered just a simple propane 50 gal gas heater???

I dont know anytihng about how nasty TEXAS well water is ....so just

"keep it simple " is all I can say
