its more of a idle thought, the minor standby losses of a regular tank
dont bother me, and our tank is plenty big enough, except when family
visits. with washing clothes, doing laundry and showering its a busy
hot water using place. and our showers have the flow restrictors
but a new kitchen dining room gut job is a lot more likely and
probably better of use of money:) kinda nervous the economy may hurt
our income:( and gasoline is killing my service business
With shower restrictors removed you have to be real carefull, and
measure shower output since tankless are real specific on Gpm and the
amount of temp rise, [ on the coldest day, when gas pressure is low
and everything gas is on, water is 38f incomming] you still need a hot
shower. For many a cheap unit would not work, but I guess that really
depends on your incomming mains gpm.

What a poorly designed page! I gave up. Most annoying is each time you
return to the page to make a change it clears all your input away and you
have to reinput everything.
And it does not seem to include the model GPHE-50 (AO Smith Vertex) that I
just had installed.

Are you sure maybe you just arent searching correctly?
When you do a "Run Query" and it comes back with no results
DONT hit the back button on your browser.
Use the "Modify Query" on the page. It rolls back and there is all
your past info you typed.
