    The majority of people have no need for a boiler installation, so what are those people supposed to so? I have a forced hot air system, so I use a furnace for heat. That leaves a tank or tankless...

    How often do you run all your hot water facets at the same time? That test is fine for the gas pressure test.

    Maybe you should try new aereators and new shower heads before you go too far.

    Install lower flow shower heads. 3 GPM is kind of steep. I use shower heads that conform to the current national standard. I use about 1 GPM at the normal shower volume setting.

    I changed to a tankless for the same reason. I needed the floor space for other uses.

    However, I prefer to have the unlimited hot water that the tankless provides.

    No anode rod, so no metal accumulation. There is no concentrated mess of goop stored in a tankless heat exchanger. An 8 year old tank type water heater has 8 years of accumulated gook stored in the...

    Tankless standby temperatures are room temperature. Old and stagnant water is 100% flushed out of the heater every time it is used. After the water heating cycle, a tankless will also heat the...

    You guys should update your thinking. Two people taking a shower at the same time is not a good thing to do. You should also use a lower flow shower head than your use!

    My temperature / pressure relief valve went bad after about a year of use. The temperature part of the valve went bad. I changed it and all is well. They only cost around $15, so buy a new one and...

    Tank water heaters end up being full of all sorts of crap and bacteria. That's why you are not supposed to ever use water from a water heater for cooking or for drinking.

    Not if you follow the directions that are supplied with a lot of tankless heaters. Then again, you have to read the directions first before you can follow them!:eek:

    That's the same link that I used in my post above. Too bad those anode rods do not come out that easy, and you do need some clearance above the heater to get the anode out of the tank.

    Yes, but can anyone afford to have a professional do regular maintenance on a tank type water heater? That tank deliming procedure is kind of dangerous for a DIYer!

    For that matter, does anyone...

    That may in fact be terrible advice. The larger units have a higher minimum flow rate and may turn off in the middle of "low flow" demand situations.

    Check the water heater inlet filter once a year. If that is clogged up, that creates a flow problem. Flush / descale should be also be performed once a year.
