How often have you felt frustrated because someone was in the washroom and suddenly your sink’s water dropped 30 degrees? It happens, right? Especially with one water heater backing the whole house, despite high GPM and all the promise, sometimes such fluctuating temperature is not so uncommon. This is why Chronomite SR-20L HTR 240-Volt Low Flow Tankless Water Heater and such dedicated types of heaters came into the market. Chronomite SR-20L/240 is designed for under sink hard-wiring so that you can use it for a single, a Durable and Self-maintenance
Chronomite heaters are very easy to maintain. Manufacture gave the feature of the flow of water through abrasive actions. This feature creates a self-cleaning process, which helps to eliminate alkali and calcification building up. This will guarantee durability in the long term by reducing the risk f corrosion and flooding. However, when left unused or in extreme condition, you need to clean the valve from stored water.

This manufacturer was the first to patent a microprocessor technology that allows for a pre-set or controlled output temperature. This technology delivers unlimited hot water in 2 seconds without the risk of scalding. Previously tankless heaters gave hot water in 6 seconds. So when you are seeking the comfort of hot water in freezing weather, you need not wait for 6-10 seconds. It will be there in no time.
Chronomite SR series is 99% efficient. That means that each unit of input produces 0. 99 outputs. If everything were, this efficient productivity would have gone far beyond our imagination.

Cons with solution
No Modulator available:
This unit has only an on-off switch and no regulator to set the temperature as high or low.
This unit has this significant issue of no modulator, only an on-off option. You can buy an extra regulator for controlling. Otherwise, you can use a cold water faucet as a mixer; for example, if you are using only the hot water tap and the supply water temp is 55 degrees, Your heater water if has 70 degrees, then the resulting temperature will be 125 degrees. Again in wintertime, when the supply water temperature drops to 30 degrees, the resulting temperature will get 100 degrees.
Need pro help for installation
The unit needs 240 volts, and to add 240 volts to the department, the usual DYI skill may not be adequate; you might need an Electrician.
More electricity means warmer water. So as you signed up for hot water, you need to give out this responsibility to an electrician, or you can do it yourself if you have prior experience. Plumbing, on the other hand, could be done by anyone. The bottom line is that it is a very easy installation process without the need for a pro unless you have some DYI skill.
Frequently Ask Questions
My home is in Maryland. Will this be enough in winter?
Ans-It depends on how many faucets you are trying to associate it with. If it is one faucet, then at 0.4 GPM flow, it gives rise to 82 ° F.Again, in 0.75 GPM, it gives rise to 44 ° F.
I have a home with three pets that go under sinks quite often. Is it hard enough to resist that torture?
Ans: Good news is Chronomite SR-20L/240 HTR has an optional stainless steel casing. It is designed to protect the burner from extreme weather conditions. That is all I can say for now; how intense your pets can get is perhaps a matter you can judge on.
My sink is far from where I have to install a water heater. Will it still work, or the water be only warm?
Ans: This one is a point-of-use system that guarantees your water is hot, as it is dedicated to one application. Unless the pipes are planted outside the home with a chance of getting frozen, it will give you desired hot water.
Chronomite SR-20L HTR 240-Volt Low Flow Tankless Water Heater is ideal for Lavatories, sinks, dishwashers, service basins, and other special applications. It gives instant hot water for an indefinite period. If you have a kitchen or a Basin that needs hot water 24/7, this is your thing. In the small apartment, it may serve the purpose of a whole-house heater, but I do not recommend it for showers because of the low GPM, and showerheads generally have the highest GPM (1.5-2.5 GPM), SO if you are a firm believer in energy-conserving theory and want to invest in a system that guarantees hot water at first touch, then this one is your catch. However, .5 GPM makes it a dedicated water heater for a single application.
