beware - unit takes 45 second to startup during winter
During cold weather, this unit runs at low flow for 45 seconds before switching to full flow.
This is extremely frustrating, as you need to waste 45s of water and stand in the cold before having a shower.
I brought this up. Bosch technicians came out, “re-calibrated” the unit 3 times then replaced the unit. It didn’t fix the problem. The technicians then called again and said that they’d spoken to Bosch in Europe due to several other people complaining and it’s apparently a “Design Feature” of the unit and not a defect.
I’m very disap...pointed with this unit, and wish I went with the Rinnai. On the plus side, winter is over, so on warmer days I’m starting to get hot water in a few second again. Another negative of this unit is it occasionally goes cold for 5 seconds for no reason.
