Electric On Demand Water Heater

That's about 123,000 btu/hr.  The largest resid gas-fueled tankless heater you'll find here is 199,000 btu/hr, so 123K isn't too bad off.  The service entrances must be large and the electrical grid possessed of abundant capacity for the utility to allow such a thirsty water heater.

Yes. Each unit had a 175-amp service with what looked like oversized feeders. When the water heaters were running, the meters spun furiously. They could easily accommodate two showers at once, but when you added the dishwasher & washing machine, they just dribbled.

As the person that started this thread way back in 2014, I can report that we are happy with the water heater and have no regrets in the purchase.  

I'm curious, does yours have the "advanced flow control feature." If so, does it work well? If not, do you get temperature swings when you turn multiple fixtures on and off? What did it do to your electric bill?
