Along lake Michigan, I have heard that the water
is about a .03 of hardness.........that is pristene.......
The midwest has nasty water from .18 all the
way up to off the scale on well water....
our water is from the bowells of the earth
Other parts of the country have good and bad.....
people dont realize that what works great in
Oregon, Texas or Georgia with luke-warm water
all year long might not work well with incomming
water almost so cold its slush.. in the winter time.....
of course they dont realize it till its too late
Regionally.....their are too may things to factor into a
" generic equation" as how well it will work
all across the USA.
here is a little equation for you........
take the lowest temp for incomming water
take the hardness--factor in the expence of how often needing to de-lime the unit
take the volume flow rate necessary
add the install costs
tripple the cost over a tank type....
then figure out what you are gonna save over
Coldness x Hardness x Volume x install costs x $$$ x 10years
now does this have your little head spinning??????
if you cant convince them with facts
baffle them with .........
$6500 to upgrade the electric panel??
You are saying that some fool spent that much just
to upgrade their electrical panel to use one of those
electric water heaters???
and to top this off they already had gas in their home???
were they planning on living in that home till 2099??
It would probably take that long just to break even..
Was this Electrical Tankless system something that someone
sold them of just some half-cocked idea that found on the internet???
I bet the plumber that installed the heater
tried his best to talk them out of this --but they would not listen.
I am sorry that I have been draggign my feet on this
the summers has been too hot and I have been too busy..
I got the nortz 6.9 gallon tankless heater, but I dont think
its going to be big enough for my house, still trying to get a larger one
I will try to get myself in high gear and buy the gas meter to see what I do use every month on the heater I presently own.
still slow but not as bad
Cass its still pretty slow....
more like we are in a holding pattern waiting on
someone in government to finally decide on what property taxes will be set at ....
the problem in the state right now is no one has any confidence in the leaders...
both in the city of Indy and on the state wide front..
The mayor of INDY has gotten people so mad that
he presently has 6 full time body guards..
so no one is spending a dime...
I should have said ..
I have been too lazy to work on my experiment..
Moving on with the experiment
I apologise that I
have been dragging my feet on this experiment ...
due to delays trying to get
the man on E-bay to accept a busines check for
his gas meter....still have not got the meter...
going to have to get a money order
from the POST OFFICE ONLY to please the s.o.b.
cant give him a bank draft , ect ect...
so once I jump these hurdels, we are game on again
