Great little water heater!

Just hooked up a great little water heater in my garage. I have a 40 gallon water heater but I don't leave it on. I only turn it on when I give the dogs a bath. If I just want to wash my hands the waters always cold so I bought this little portable water heater from Home Depot. Man this thing is great. It only comes on when you need it. I turned down the pressure to about 30psi to it and it cooks! Would be great for camping also. If you need hot water in the garage check it out. $118 bucks US.

I've been wanting to add hot water access outside my house for the pressure washer. I was going to install another hose bid on the house. They say in the description for this it is suitable for that use. Be curious to get some real world input on that. I wonder if it could be converted to Natural Gas. Propane is stupid expensive in a 20# bottle.

First, clever idea, Toney! DO bring your water heater to the Romney Cycles Campout and Ride this May (dibs on a half-gallon to wash, after the ride!).

Not gonna make any jokes about the device; a friend uses a propane heater to make his pop-up camper livable in the winter, outstanding.

Does call into mind, SOLAR POWER . . . a guy was traveling the "third world" on his KLR, teaching the natives how to build solar reflective ovens . . . posted for several pages on ADV, then suddenly . . . NOTHING.

Don't know if he became part of a ritual sacrifice, or became an entre' for some cannibal feast . . . if the latter, I wonder if they used his solar reflective oven?

My story's true; don't know what happened to the KLRista bringing technology to the "third world."
