    Default New tankless installed....this can't be normal.

    This new unit gets MUCH hotter than the old. When its done being used, you can feel the heat emanating from it a foot away. My infrared thermometer shows the chambers at 270 degrees. How can that be good? When the water shuts off, after a few seconds, you can hear the water bubbling and gurgling in the unit...sounds aweful, and then some things click once or twice and a final pop after 30 seconds and its done.

    Is this unit faulty? Its a Supreme Tankless Heater. Also, the case of the unit that is attached directly to my wall is currently at 150 degrees. Seems aweful hot.
