Introduction: OFF-GRID......TANKLESS Shower Set-up

tankless water heater easy to set up...and low cost for a great set-up ...the water and shower hook ups take 1/2 inch fittings so it just hooked up straight to the shower and water pipes ...so happy with this

Hey first off good job these things work great and I'm glad to see you touched on the CO2 detector and the air intake requirements. I've used these personally for over 30 yrs off grid in a small community, 20 or so installs and teaching a wide variety of people how to operate these heaters safely. Without writing a book here :) 2 things I would suggest : 1) run a outside air intake to the heater or make outside air available. (you can deplete the oxygen in a small space and in the winter, why use the heated air in your living space to burn propane?) Which brings me to number 2) Vent the exhaust if a tankless heater is installed in a living space. School of hards knocks teaches the survivors well. When brand new and shiny, talking about the smaller sized heaters, this might not seem like a necessary undertaking but time will alter the characteristics of the exhaust do to oxidized heat exchangers and the dust or whatever that gets baked onto heat exchangers besides the gases from combustion really aren't that cool to be breathing (this coming from a guy that smokes a pack a day!) Anyway theres the book I said I wouldn't write! Once again Good job and congrats.
