    Default Looking for Chicago Lake water experiences with Tankless

    Greetings,

    We are considering a tankless water heater here in the suburbs of Chicago. We are on "lake water" and so have really cold source water in the winter (I'm not sure what it is at the moment.. sorry..)

    I am hoping that those who live in the area getting lake water from Chicago can tell me if they are having good experiences or not and what their equipment is. We have a 3 bed/1.5 bath tri-level house. Family of 5 with kids starting the pre-teens. Laundry room is under the master bedroom.

    I am considering the Rheem condensing natural gas direct vent (H 95 http://www.rheem.com/documents/tankl...oor-spec-sheet)

    How reliable has it been (repair history)?
    Repair costs? (I plan on performing my own "flushing" on a yearly basis.. so what are other maintenance costs?)
    How effective at getting to 120 degrees and holding steady?
    How loud is it when it fires up? Will it be an issue to have it under the master bedroom when I wake up early to shower and go to work and my wife will be trying to stay asleep?

    Thanks in advance for the honest truth.

    Sincerely,
    Doug
