Best Portable Water Heater – The Tankless Eccotemp L5 with Shower Attachment

The Eccotemp L5 Portable Water Heater is a small and well-built portable water heater that’s very popular amongst those away from modern conveniences during trips or living situations and those who use it around their home outdoors. After installed, you’re guaranteed to be satisfied with the Eccotemp L5 as it instantly heats up your water in endless supply. Perfect for use in situations away from the home such as camping out, vacations at a cabin or during any situation when your access to hot water is non-existent. The igniter, which lights the pilot flame, is powered by 2 D-cell batteries so it’s useful in places where you have no access to electricity. Ignition only occurs when water is running to prevent overheating and can deliver one gallon of hot water a minute that is adjustable from 80 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. The Eccotemp L5 Portable Water Heater connects to common garden hose attachments. Includes a hose and regulator to connect to standard LP tank and a shower head with an on/off control. The output of the shower head may not compete with your home’s shower but it’s definitely enough for an away-from-home alternative.

While set up of the Eccotemp L5 is pretty easy you may find yourself needing extra items, such as Teflon tape, to seal up the connections and prevent leaks. After seventeen minutes the burners on the L5 are set to turn off but you can just turn the switch under the unit off and then on again to restore your hot water with minimal interruption. Other than that you may find yourself turning down the temperature of the Eccotemp L5 Portable Water Heater during first use due to it doing its job too well. In windier situations the flame heating your water may have going out and may have to be re-ignited so it’s best to either avoid windy situations or have some sort of wind break outdoors.

Included with the Eccotemp L5 is a shower head, hardware for mounting the water heater and a propane tank hookup
