My plumber friends say don't expect to save any money with a tankless
heater, long term.

put a leak alarm at the tank....

tanks generally last a long time.

so buy a 12 year warrantied tank and replace at 9 years.

or add a drip pan or other protection in case the tank leaks

and who is to say a tankless NEVER LEAKS?

Energy savings wasn't a consideration for me - I needed the space
upstairs, and like you, was paranoid about a tank above my head.


Who would hear it when you're out of town?


Sage advice.


I had that - turns out the drain was plugged, so that wouldn't have
saved my bacon anyway.


Mine's outside now, so the lawn will just get watered if it does!
