Eccotemp fills a small but necessary niche in the water heater world. This brand specializes in tankless heaters of small capacity, many of which can be used in outdoor applications.
One of its top models is the tiny L5 portable tankless outdoor shower model, which has drawn excellent reviews. Another model that has earned some love is the L10 high capacity outdoor model, which you can hook up to a propane tank and provide hot water for all of your needs at the lake house, summer cabin or even potting shed. Some owners even use it to provide hot showers for their horses, and the horses gave the heater sterling reviews.
Other applications include providing hot water for a new bathroom add-on where there is no space for a standard hot water heater. Eccotemp draws high praise for the availability of parts and its customer service, although problems are said to be few. These heaters are also fairly simple to install, another positive point.
The advice given for those who are considering an Eccotemp tankless heater is to verify just how much hot water that you will need. The smaller models truly give a reduced output. Also, many of the models will turn off automatically if needed for three or four hours, another drawback for some.
