Hot water at the cottage!!


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
August 24, 2014
The cottage is off grid and I have only a small solar system not big enough for a water heater. This little unit is perfect for us. I ran a pex water line from the cottage to the heater then to a tree behind the sauna. I use a sureflow RV pump to supply the cottage and this unit. You will have as much hot water that you want. I love this thing and wish I found it years ago. I may buy a second one for the kitchen in the cottage.

I use this on camping trips to avoid filling up the grey tanks on the RV. I also use it at home to give my chihuahuas a dog bath with constant warm water. Best thing out there and I am happy I bought this one. At one time I stayed at Morro Bay for 8 days and they had no sewer hookups so I used this heater to wash the dishes and for much more so I didn't have to drain the tanks at all. They had good showers so they were good to use. This heater gives you instant hot water and works well with my small propane cylinder.

We purchased the Tankless Water Heater to use in our backyard while our bathroom (and only shower/tub) was being gutted and beautifully remodeled. The power of the shower head was great, and the water could get as hot or cold as you wanted. Fantastic resource and a great option for us. As long as you have a water source and a propane tank you can take a shower anywhere, whether in your backyard or out camping!

This is the second unit I've purchased. Left the first hanging in the shed and the mice loved it for building a nest. I now store the new unit in a plactic mouse proof container. Plenty of hot water at a good flow. I/we use at our private camp site where I built a semi portable shower stall. The wife, daughter, son-in-law, 3 grandkids and myself took showers one after the other with plenty of hot water. Only limit hot water is the size of your LP tank. Working on the fittings to hook it up our outside kitchen sink.

November 11, 2013
We used this water heater mounted outside of our house off the deck within a makeshift shower curtain while our house underwent an 8 week remodel. Worked great for hot showers and for washing dishes. The water was hot enough, though we kept it on a lower gas and water pressure setting. A weak part of the heater is the attachment of the shower hose to the unit itself. Twice I shut the water off at the nozzle and twice the hose blew off the connection. I was able to fix it both times (with a little work). However, thereafter I did not use the water shut off. I instead attached a shut off at the point the garden hose attaches to the heater. Worked great that way for weeks. Never ran out of gas. I would guess there is about 15 hours of use on a standard propane tank. Would buy again knowing the weaknesses.

This product is awesome. Constant temperature, easy to assemble, no leaks, (use the washers people). I can't say enough. I even used it at a park on faucets that you had to hold down a plunger and periodically release and push again. There was no noticeable change in temp. and it just worked perfectly. The shower head has different spray patterns as well. I highly recommend.

The heater works fine to a point. The hose was too cheap and broke and had to replace. Some variation in temp., but not great. The hose angle bracket keeps coming apart and will have to be replaced. But the water flows. great. I would say it is a good unit with a little flaws to be worked out .

January 29, 2013
The unit its self works good (not great ) enough hot water but you have to keep playing with the controls. Also the hose that connects to the shower head isnot very good. I had to use my shower head because the outer skin swelled up and started to leak. Using a 35psi water pump, after contacting eco-temp of this problem they had no replacement hose to fullfill there warranty, but wanted to sell me a premium hose (being a stainless steel hose) for $29.00. I feel that this product for the price I paid could have came with a better hose.

August 28, 2012
I love my new tankless water heater it was the hit of the camp out..my family was lining up for hot water to do dishes it was so wonderful to have for all kinds of reasons evengiving my brothers puppy a shower when she got dirty..lol... The only problem I had was not knowing I needed a water pressure coupler between the camp ground faucet and the water heater ..The tube separated and blew up because the pressure was to great so I purchased a pressure coupler and Im going to use it next time ..I feel you should either make it part of the package or at least make sure people know that it needs to be done..thanks...sharon

Great product, we had considered this heater use with the motorhome, as an extra outdoor . but we tried it out and found that it was extremly usefull for other applications: ie. washing the dogs, outside furniture and best yet, the horses... they do not like having a cold shower.... Temp. control is steady , even with start stops. great product...

I bought this because my stock attwood tank had a leak. I was able to replace my electric and propane water heater with this cheaper unit by doing some plumbing. Problem with this heater is it shuts off every once in awhile but all you have to do is turn the water switch off and on real quick to reset the pressure switch inside to start making hot water again. Overall it delivers hot water and it never runs out. Not sure exactly how much propane its really going to use yet though. Make sure to plumb this thing outside like I did if your going to use it as a permanent fix because the exhaust is smelly and deadly.

Beware of things made in China

March 25, 2012
I was pleasantly pleased to receive this item in 2 days. The shower head was leaking.so I hand tightened it and the leak got worse. The connection was cracked. Checking further I found that it was made in China. Nothing new for items from there! I will say the heater put out ample hot water and the temperature controls have worked good. However I will have to try to replace the shower head. I hope it wasn't all made in China!

A GREAT IN-BETWEEN AND BEYOND WATERHEATER SHOWER


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
March 16, 2012
I needed more than just an outdoor shower and this EccoTemp so far has been a wonderful experience thanks to the included fittings and gas regulator hose. I've had it a couple of months hooked up to my camp water system thanks to the 1/2 pipe threads making the connections was as simple as I needed it to be. I didn't need the included shower head -instead I use a low water use showerhead I already have. The plastic shower head bracket seems a bit flimflam and not too rugged for a camp product but if you make your own shower head from 1/2 PVC pipe and make a mount bracket with a plastic 1 X 2 material that can hang over the shower wall like I did who cares. The water heater itself is enough for me!

Best purchase ever


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
March 14, 2012
I have been using this daily for 9+ months and continue to be thrilled with it. I removed my old h20 heater, made a sheet-metal covered plywood door (with a half-round opening at bottom w/a half pvc coupling attached for pluming to come in/out) where the vent was. I added another line with shut-off valve to the propane feed and hooked it up to the h2o heater. I fabricated a collapsable sheet-metal housing outside the new door and have the new h2o heater hung on the outside of my mini motorhome. It is plumed in to the water system and I do dishes w/hot water and take hot showers. Because of the (well ventilated collapsable) housing, I can use it in the wind and rain. I now have extra storage under the sink. When I take off, I turn off the gas line, undo the water feed and stash it in the new storage area where the old heater was, with room to spare. The only problem I had initially was not having enough water pressure for it to stay on. I remedied that by running separate feeds for the hot and cold lines (full hook-ups) and it works wonderfully. (I have not tried it with just the water pump.) It does not get terribly hot when it is close to freezing outside, yet it does get comfortably warm (It can be adjusted to scalding in not close to freezing weather). It is so reasonably priced and a money saver. I love it and am thrilled to not have to hear a water heater continually going on and off, or pay for that wasted propane use.

We like our water heater. The only problem is the hose to the sprayer. The first time we used it the hose burst 3 different times if the water was left turned on to the heater. Other than having to turn the water on and off to use it the heater works great.

Daily use at cabin


0 out of 1 people found this review helpful.
February 04, 2011
I've been using my EccoTemp portable water heater in my outdoor shower at my cabin going on four years now. It has been one of the best investments I've ever made. I cannot rave enough about the satisfaction I've had with using this appliance. The one exciting benefit is that I've only had to exchange the propane tank once during the time I've owned it and I shower almost daily.I use it exclusively during the warmer seasons and store it indoors for the winter. One regret is that EccoTemp apparently does not make a vented unit for use indoors; however there is another manufacturer that does, and it is nearly identical. Plans are to buy one of theirs and use it as my whole house water heater, replacing the 6 gallon electric unit I have now. The price of the Ecco Temp is AWESOME - a great value! It makes a nice (unusual) gift for someone who seems to have everything. Take it from me, you will not be disappointed with this water heater.

Replaced the water heater in my motorhome with this one!


1 out of 3 people found this review helpful.
January 01, 2011
This water heater is amazing. I don't have to wait 30 minutes for my regular water heater in my motorhome to heat up anymore. Just turn the knob & get hot water instantly. It just works great, with one main exception. The chimney /vent cover is poorly designed. I had to make a better one to keep the rain out. If it gets wet inside the unit, you will have to let it dry thoroughly before you can use it. I'd buy another one, if I had a place to put it. It even works with a pump so you can use it with your onboard freshwater tank. It took 2 months to empty a 20lb. propane tank with 2 people showering everyday + doing dishes & washing hands. I was lucky to get a month out of a 20lb tank with my old water heater. It's one of the best investments I've ever made. It will save you money & you won't run out of hot water. The same company makes a larger unit to use on a house. You will not be disappointed.

I use this when at the beach, it's great for washing off sand and such, and keeps the mess outside the RV. Hang it just about anywhere - on a post, a fence, even the ladder of the RV. I also use it at home for giving one of our horses a warm bath, although the nozzle hose could be longer for that. As received, the nozzle hose did not screw onto the heater - the threads were different. I called the service number, they explained the problem (packaging error at the factory) and they shipped me a new nozzle and hose that same day. Longer hose and better quality than the original.

Bought to replace broken heater on trailer, works better than expected. I have owned it for 2 years and am still happy with it, haven't even replaced the batteries from the originals I put in yet. Recently bought a 5th wheel with a functional heater and I bypassed the factory heater and opted to use this one instead. would definitely buy again, and recommend it to people all the time.

Bought this heater to replace non-working standard tank. All fittings fit directly to existing fittings. Just hung outside the old heater door. Works fabulously! Had to turn the temp down, water was really HOT! Got rid of old tank decreasing weight and increasing space. Only problem now is to configure an easy way to seal pipes, hose in side when using and then be able to move inside when traveling.

I purchased this product last spring and have used it dozens of times out camping in the Colorado mountains. It works great even at altitudes of 10k'. I use a 50 gallon drum, an on-demand pump hooked to my deep cycle battery, 20# propane tank and a portable shower tent. What an impressive product! It's well designed and quality constructed. It allows me to take nice HOT showers as long as I want. In fact, the only downfall is that I take longer showers than necessary! I HIGHLY recommend this product!

Best investment - Hands down!


8 out of 16 people found this review helpful.
June 11, 2009
This is by far one of the best investments I've ever made. I can't say enough about how completely satisfied I am with the performance, quality, and efficiency of this water heater. What drew me to this product in the first place was the unbelievable low price, compared to other heaters listed for hundreds more. Very light-weight. Very portable. Very simple to get it up and running. I have it hanging behind my cabin in a small, oudoor shower stall. I've lost count of the number of showers I've taken, yet the propane tank isn't even close to being empty. I found a Rubbermaid container that fits perfectly over the entire unit for when I'm not using it. (Birds, rain, leaves, etc.) The only thing I would like to see is Eccotemp come up with a safe, vented, and approved way of installing this unit indoors. If they could do this, and still maintain a low price, I'd buy up every share of stock in their company I could get my hands on! Excellent product!! By the way, the water heater makes an excellent gift for the person who seemingly has everything. They will think of you and appreciate your gift every time they use it.

Hot Water Right Now!

This portable water heater is awesome. I am an advent hunter during seasons of course and i needed something to scent down with other than the hanging water bag which isn't the greatest thing. So i found this and i must say I have been getting the hottest showers and fell in love with this water heater. I use a plastic 55 gal drum and a 1/3 hp sump pump from home depot to my generator for power and 20 lb propane tank and a multipurpose utility room from wal-mart and i stay clean as a whistle. weather your camping, playing in the mud, or even after a hurricane with no power or hot water you can always depend on this heater. This is a hunters dream! Thank you Camping World!!

We found that some times the public restrooms are not so good looking so we got this one and we love it camping and taking 2-3 shower a day is worth it just make sure you have the right plugs in the right ones or you will be not using it for a wile and do make sure the water hose is tight so it does not splash up and fry all the cables inside we call and the send us a new one great for that warranty you mess up and they replace it we love it not too hot for me to hat for my hubby perfect
