Instant Heat tankless water heaters can supply you with hot water almost instantaneously! Depending on where your water heater is located in your home, the hot water may take a while to get to the sink, shower or bathtub. Sometimes it may seem you're waiting for an eternity! If only there was a product that delivered hot water on demand. Well now there is!

Let It Flow

An Instant Flow Water Heater heats the water as it flows through the unit. The electric heater provides heat to the tubes within the unit. These tubes are filled with water and as the water flows through, it becomes heated. This provides you with hot water in an instant.

The Hidden Success

The water heater is compact and installs under your sink. The water connection is cut in between the supply line and the sink connection. This works out great in garages or tool sheds where you wouldn't normally have hot water. Image how nice it would be to have hot water to wash you hands out there!

How It Works

Once the water lines are connected, the device just needs to be plugged into a 125 volt outlet.

When the water faucet is turned on and water begins to flow, the flow switch in the unit turns the electric elements on. This heats the water as it flows through. The outcome is instantaneous hot water.

In order to power the heater, you'll need to install a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet. This unit requires a 20-amp circuit in order to power it.

Limited Usage

Remember, this is only a single-area water heater. Don't confuse this with a whole house tankless water heater. This is designed to heat the water at one sink in your home. If you need more, go with the tankless unit.
