If ya cooks it wit the rite sesonin's, it all reely does taste lahk yardbird. You are right Henry; these days, tankless water heaters, are among the last products which are made as good as they used to be. They last for a long, long time. The AquaStar (Bosch) formerly known as ELM Le Blanc, has been in continuous production in Europe for over sixty years. As has the Thermar and Myson. Nowadays, you can expect 5-7 yrs from a tank water heater, but as long as thirty or more, from a tankless. I was raised with them, in stingy old England, where gas & electricity costs four times what it does here. Now ya'll know why they don't keep water hot in tanks, all day & all night long. It's late, gotta go conserve some more energy. G'night all. Brian in the deeeeeep south.
