I have this... Bought it for around $500 couple years back. Works great as long as you have a water softener and a lot of room on your electrical panel.

Ya same. They do NOT last very long. Do not expect 10-15 years like a typical hot water tank. Maybe 5 or so. I had to drop a special bundle of cable from the main breaker for this baby. It takes three, THREE, 40 amp, dipole breakers. FORTY AMPS! And THREE OF THEM!

But it heats water for my whole house without ever running out. I have 6 people in my house with 6 bedrooms and this keeps up. And despite what you hear, it has no discernible effect on my power bill.

Despite it's lower life expectancy. I'd still rather just order a new one every 5 -8 years rather than pay 3000$+ for gas. I do have rather hard water though also.

If it has a lifetime warranty for residential use, who cares that it only lasts 5 years? Doesn't the warranty cover replacement/repairs?
