I suppose it's a good start until I get a new tankless that can handle more volume. If I'm good for a 10-15 minute burst at full hot that will be enough in most situations right now. At some point I'll look at running them a little different to better address the volume problem. At this point I'm doing one thing at a time, and fixing the short-cycle problem would be a win right now.
Anyone have a suggestion on a decent 10-20 gallon electric tank waterheater? Do you know what kind of circuit I will need to run? Is a 20-amp dedicated enough or should I run a 30? I can do either as this will be a new circuit I'm installing just for the water heater.
Run a 30A, 240vac circuit, then, you can install almost any residential electric WH. On a 20A branch, you limit your choices. The wire will cost you more, but the flexibility is worth it.
