Speaking of WORST decisions,


of 2009, or any year, I gotta say that my tankless elec water heater has to be the worst I've made in a LONG time. Have already replaced it once, with all that entails w/plumbing, elec, postage, etc, NOW, have just spent nearly the entire day buying and installing a water expansion tank to 'supposedly' fix the noise (water pipes clanging), and uneven hot water issues we have throughout the house. An anti-siphon valve, (more time, headache and expense), did nothing to fix the problem, SO I spoke w/a plumber and he said the tank would fix stuff. After the whole day, running to Home Depot, working over my head on the water line and dealing with a bunch of copper T's and unions , some bad plumbing joints, on my part, large and small leaks,I finally got the water in the house back on. Bottom line, nothing different. A hundred bucks and 8 hours, shot. If I could only get the person who sold me the piece of crap tankless unit to bend over in front of me, I would like to return it to them, without Vaseline. I also need to thank the plumber who was SURE that the expansion tank would fix problem....

you're just too funny, Boy Wonder! Just a few short months ago you were praising this electric tankless water heater to the heavens. Actually, the only place where they have ever worked properly is in Europe, where they are a staple. Didn't have one in military housing when I lived there, but just about every apartment on the civilian market used them and they worked wonderfully, because they were set up to be used specifically in small housing units. At least you'll get your tax deduction, dear!

No tax deduction for ELEC. Only gas.
