              We have Gypsy Vanners which require lots of baths and whitening shampoo. We need hot water in order to get the whitening shampoos out completely so we bought this to take to shows with such luxuries and it works great!
              It is a little bulky and you need to follow the directions exactly!

              • Q:

                In a climate that doesn't go below freezing, does this unit still need to be drained? I only need it for the winter months, so I'd like to know the requirements for draining to prevent damage others have mentioned.

                  A:

                  We suggest to all ways drain the unit. If you know it is going to get below freezing drain and use pressured air to put through the unit to make sure you got all the water out of the coils.

              • Q:

                I'm trying to decide between the original and power max. What's the difference if they both supply unlimited hot water? And what scenario would I want to spend the extra on the original?

                  A:

                  With the power max you would want this one if you are planing on using it in the colder months and if your well water is colder. This one will heat the water up warmer if you have those two things.

                When I first used the insta hot it got extremely hot, so I was able turn it down. Now when I use it I have to have the "heat" turned up to max and water down to min for it to be a little warm. When it first comes out its hot then immediately gets cooler. When I turn up the pressure to max and the heat at max it is not very warm at all

                • A:

                  The water needs to be running for it to ignite. I had this problem as well and it took us forever to figure it out. Once you turn the switch on just open the hose nozzle and you should hear it ignite. You can turn it off while washing and it will reignite when you turn the water back on.

              • Q:

                I bought one of these about 3 years ago, and have always drained it and stored it in my barn ( can get below freezing). this year, tried to use it, and it was leaking Everywhere!! opened it up and there were multiple failure sites in the piping. I'm pretty sure I drained it the last time I used it. has this been happening to others? could there be a pressure problem from my water source? thanks !

                  A:

                  Usually a split in the coils means that there was water left in the coils. When the water freezes it expanded and split the coils. The coils splitting from freezing damage is not covered under the warranty. Rapid fix which we suggest to fix the coils. You can purchase it at any local hardware store and it will fix the split coils.If you have any other questions please fee free to contact customer service at service@sstack.com.

                  A:

                  Storing this unit in an above freezing temperatures if possible is the best way to avoid any damage. If it has to remain in frigid temperatures, make sure the drain valve is open, this is the ribbed cylindrical stem next to the water input valve. You will also need to unhook the out-going water line to make sure the water is drained from the heat exchange unit.

                  A:

                  This will supply heat as long as the propane tank is filled and water as long as the supply is constant. This can be used to fill or top off water buckets, but depending on how cold it is will determine whether they freeze hours after the hot water has been used.
