  1. These are great as I have one. There is one catch to them if you have hot water on demand( a system where you have a wall mounted hot water heater that only heats water as you use it instead of a pilot and tank), it is usually not enough water flow to keep the hot water coming if you have older plumbing as I do. I CAN however turn the water pressure way down for the hot and add a tad of cold and mine works fine MOST OF THE TIME.
