The Bosch cost compared to my complete heating system

When you consider the heater unit I'm selling for $950 which is plug and play ready I don't think I'm asking to much.

Let me know if anyone is interest in ordering one. Mike

Ok I was asking at a dif. Supplier and one of the guys there told me his dad has this kind out of the states. He uses it for making beer and cleaning his pots. He told me there are 300-400$ and are on propane. He said they are amazing little units and portable. They are called Eco temp on demand. I'll do a little more research into this unit and see if it will work for this application.

Looks like a handy unit. Just need a 12v pump that puts out the right pressure

I wonder with a flow rate that ignites the heater would that be quirky if the intake gets a bit clogged with debris or the battery is not a 100%

You rock a strainer. On the intake. All on demands inside out side should have one it's a very important part to that unit. You def don't want sand sticks water bugs fish or whatever clogging up the exchanger. Lol.

Actually if you research a little harder you will know that this isn't the same unit I use with my systems its the Ecotemp L10 great unit and by the way you seem to keep comparing JUST the heaters you come up with to my ENTIRE setup. Do you research and then have an intelligent conversation!

Regards

Don't get me wrong !! The Eccotemp L10 pack is a sweet little unit for sure I'm going to order a couple .No more stinky hunting trips and it's super lightweight. The little 12v pump is decent but I'll upgrade to grundfos hahah and tweak the output a bit. Change the flow orfices get it sending out 4 gpm. To a manifold. Have a hole camp set up. Very very very. Cool thread. Thanks honky for this. You opened a whole new side to camping and at a affordable cost 385$ for the package is crazy. My brother paid 250 for a Colman shower system that sucks

I guess you can say I'm lazy but If I'm in the hot tub drinking beers that's exactly where I want to stay and not be bothered. The remote kit I offer is sweet and again it's so convenient to just click a button on the remote to fire up the tub when you want to or if it's sitting outside a shower tent you can simply click the on button on the remote and you have hot water in seconds in your outdoor shower.

If you consider this unit & price to say a Zodi high output hotwater system you're looking at thousands and still no remote.
