The Bosch Tronic 3000 T point-of-use electric mini-tanks are suitable for those who cannot bear a fluctuation of hot water while in an application. In the case of tankless, when being used at multiple appliances at a point, Lukewarm water is all you may get. For this tank water heater, no recovery time is required. It has a point-of-use system to heat water on demand, so it will not consume much electricity if you switch it off when idle. You can use three faucets for bathing and other home appliances with The Bosch Tronic 3000 T and never run short of hot water at any faucet.
I do not know about others, but one thing I look for in such a machine is installation ease. I am not inclined to hire fancy plumbers and electricians and spend another 200 dollars for a device that has already cost me half of my salary. So the ease of installation and no clause attached to the warranty that requires an electrician or plumber to install the heater works great for people like me.
Attach it anywhere
The manufacturer of Bosch T 2.5-Gallon Electric Mini-Tank under Sink Water Heater says it is specially designed for powder rooms, RVs, under the sink, over the sink, inside the cabinet placement. It is a tank heater may give you the impression of not being easy to carry or place at a convenient nook. However, the case is opposite; it is perfect to be hung (bracket included), floored, or placed on a shelf without modifying that area.

No more cold water sandwiching
Bosch has sported this version for some obvious problems that cannot be avoided in tankless water heaters in this world of tankless water heaters. This one comes with a tank; such a problem never arises like cold water sandwiching, which happens from the cold water stored in the line between hot water that keeps heating from the heater after sensing flow.

Cons with solution
It is a very large water heater dimension for 2.5 Gallons is 13.75 W x 13.75 H x 10.75 D,4 Gallons is 13.75 W x 13.75 H x 13.5 D and 7.0 Gallons is 17.5 W x 17.5 H x 14.5 D.

It does not work in cases
If Bosch es 2. 5 is connected to the garbage disposal line of your home, then it will go off when the garbage disposal is off.
It is more of an awareness issue, and I included it here because if you are aware, you will not mistake connecting bosch es 2. 5 with the line that goes with the garbage disposal. If you have installed it from any other line, which does not have any conditional issue, it will work on demand.
Waterfalls from tank
Like many tank water heaters, it does leave water under it from the pressure valve. If you have kept it under a sink or inside a cabinet, dripping water will make the place nasty and dysfunctional.
The available connections are male NPT. With female NPT, such drain problem could have been lower. This point of use water heater blows a bit of water through the temperature-pressure] valve, which can make your house a mass. The only solution is to connect it to a drain. Another way is to create a drain with PVC pipe and a big enough bottle and clean the bottle weekly.
Frequently Asked Questions
The manual of Bosch es 2. 5 asks for the ES8, a 20 Amp breaker, and a 12GA wire. But the wattage is 1440 with 12 Amps, so why need a 20 Amp breaker?
Ans- In most cases, electric heaters, and water heaters, create continuous loads. Electrical codes requires circuits with continuous loads to be decreased by 20% for example 15 amps x 120 volts = 1,800 watts when decreased 1,800 watts x 80% = 1,440 watts. That is written as the wattage. It is technically fine to run it on a 15 amp circuit, but it is not very safe. Anything else with a little electric consumption will cause the breaker to trip. Another is the distance between the heater and electric panel; a long wire run will cause the voltage to drop, especially on a 15 amp 14 gauge circuit. So, be safe than worry and use on a 20 amp circuit (dedicated if possible).
How good is it for filling a bathtub?
Ans- It depends on the size of your bathtub. It can fill the medium-sized bathtub with boiling water, but once the tank is emptied, refilling the tank and heating it simultaneously may cause a bit of delay.
Does it have any warranty?
Ans- It comes with a six-year limited warranty on the inner tank; 2 years limited warranty on other components.
Buying a water heater is not an easy pick. There are so many types and many more brands. Sometimes the choice is between the same kinds of two heaters with different brands. In such a case, you better closely look into the configuration of each type and the added features like warranty and customer service provisions.
