Water Heaters

Water heaters from Grainger include natural gas, liquid propane and electric models with standard and high-capacity tanks. An electric water heater is equipped with screw-type immersion elements and an over-temperature protector with automatic shutoff. Upgrading to a tankless water heater can lead to savings because it is not constantly heating and reheating water. You'll also find the water heater parts you need to maintain tank and tankless systems.

I have a trailer that I want to use a tankless water heater on. I want to be able to run a shower off of it, no other things will be used at that time on it. The trailer will only be used during the summer months in new york. I have water pressure between 20 and 30 psi out of a shallow well. I am considering either electric or propane, but probably leaning towards electric. So my main question is what size should I be looking for to handle my needs. Are their other condsidertations I should be thinking about?

Answer: 
To answer your question...
an electric Point of use would be ok of your water is around 50 Deg. You would need a 30 Amp 120 V circuit that part number would be a 6DXT2.. Otherwise a small Propane units made by Bosch is a 1LXD2, this unit will require venting and is 26" tall x 16" Wide and 8 1/2" deep. This unit would be more than enough for your needs.

Be sure to use applicble codes for installation.

Answer: 
Ok, so if this is a travel trailer with a 30 amp service, there is no way you will be able to operate an electric tankless water heater. I have one in my plant that provides less than a gallon per minute, and draws 40 amps.

To figure out what you really need, measure the temperature of your ground water, and then measure the flow rate of your shower head. Tankless heaters are rated based on degree rise at a specific rise. So, if you have 50 degree ground water, and your shower head flows 2.5 gallons per minute, you would need a heater capable of giving you a 60 degree rise at 2.5 gpm. Electric tankless heaters are going to draw 200+ amps at that rating.

Answer: 
I have a friend that does it with a 6 gallon tank type water heater, draws 1500 Watts, uses low flow shower head, uses on off valve, sets temperature, then on and off to conserve water. Gets wet, turns off water, soaps, then rinses.
