My mother is planning on getting one of those when we need a new one. It looks cool.

Yeah all I hear are good things. When my tank dies I will replace it with a tankless.

That'* not really practical for most homes. Especially homes without easy access to the piping (ie. finished basement, crawl spaces, slab homes, condos, etc.).

It'* a little far fetched to repipe a house to save a little dough on a tankless water heater.

Yeah, I know. It depends on the layout of the house. My parents could have done it fairly easily. They have a ranch house, and the heater sits near the middle in the unfinished basement. The pipe goes up to the ceiling and immediately splits, one pipe towards the kitchen and washroom, one towards the bathrooms at the other end of the house. Itwould have taken about five feet of pipe and a couple elbows to put in another one. Same for the gas and electric that run it.

Like I said though, if you just don't run the wash while you're in the shower, you never have to worry about the temperature lag.

When I looked at those last year, Home Depot had models that could handle anywhere from 1 'sink' to the 'whole house'.

I plan on getting one sooner or later too. Gas or electric is the question. LOL
