    Does anyone have any real world experience with a point of use water heater like the Ecotemp (L5 or L10) and expected realistic temperature rise? I am wondering how warm say 38-42 degree ground water would get in one of these units?

    The manual for the L10 states "capable of delivering 2 to 2.65 gallons of hot water" You might want to talk to the manuf. Most instantaneous water heaters have a min. flow for activation of the burner. 2 gpm is pretty high if that's the case.

    Also, they give you the BTU at 75,000 for the L10 so you can convert that to temp rise (delta T)
