Arrived promptly and well packaged. Nice unit, works fine. Only complaint is the size of the iron pipe fittings. They are way undersized which does not allow you to use plumbers paste. There is a reason they send so much teflon tape with the unit. You have to build up almost a 1/16 of an inch of teflon tape on the units threads before installing the hose adaptor and propane fittings and even then they don't really get tight.
This is an inconvenience for the hose but a potential fire/explosion hazard for the propane fitting. I would suggest better quality control in parts used. Any buyers should check the propane fitting for leaks at each use!!

Great little water heater
June 28, 2012

Hi, just to say I am impress how this Eccotemp L5 Portable Water Heater is efficient. The best I did was to try it in my back yard,the heater worked a little and did not always started when the water was on... The problem originated from the 12 volts water pump, the water pump I bought at first was a 60 psi 1 gpm and I rapidly came to the conclusion the pump was not pushing enough water to make the heater starts. I bought a better pump, this time a 12 volts, 55 PSI and 3 GPM. What a difference, the heater is working every time the water shower head is on, within seconds I have hot water. It works extremelly well. I recommend it, no problem.
