    Overview

    Model # SHC 2.5 Store SKU # 1000789401

    SHC Mini-Tank Water Heaters excel at supplying hot water at a sink for hand washing or for kitchen applications. An SHC saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed rather than having a long pipe run from a central hot water tank. The small tank and good insulation reduces the stand-by losses compared with larger tank water heaters and the wait for hot water at the tap is reduced to a minimum. Why store 30 or more gallons of hot water if much less are sufficient for the job? Stiebel Eltron has been a world leader in advanced water heating technology for almost 90 years. Our engineering excellence and high-quality manufacturing results in products fulfilling the highest expectations of performance and reliability and our SHC Mini-Tank Water Heaters are no exception.

    1. SHC 2.5 mini-tank water heater provides 2.65 gallons of hot water for hand washing or kitchen applications
    1. Installation right under or near the sink, as close to the draw off point as possible, will make the wait for hot water as short as possible and maximize energy savings
    1. May be used in-line as a booster to provide hot water quickly at a fixture located a distance from a central storage tank, or in a recirculation loop
    1. SHC 2.5 heating element is 1300 W, and the unit draws 11.3 A and plugs into a standard 120 V receptacle with the supplied 3-prong plug
    1. SHC 2.5 is made in Germany

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little water heater! Wish I had thought to have one of these installed years ago. I have it mounted under the sink in the vanity of my master bedroom. No longer do I have to waste tons of water whiel I wait for what seems like forever to have hot water; I turn on the hot water spigot on the sink, and nice, steamy hot water in an instant. This space-saving design fits nicely under the sink, and yet still leaves lots of room for other things you may like to store in the cabinet. Top mounted temperature-set dial; easy to access. Of course, at this point I cannot comment as to the durability of this product. This German-made unit appears to be well-constructed; I'm not expecting any problems. Don't hesitate to purchase. There are other less-expensive tank water heaters out there, but I don't think that they are of the same quality and workmanship of this brand. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Can the tank be put between a tankless system and the hot water feed. This is to reduce the cold water though the lines, before the tankless system fires and heats the water.

    Asked by: Cold Water
    Yes, this heater can be feed with hot water and is used in this way quite often.

    Could this heater heat water to be pumped through 300' of 1/2" pex in a loop and stay at a temperature of 75 degrees?

    Asked by: Josh
    No it cannot. The lowest temperature setting on the SHC is 86 degrees F. This is a higher temperature than you want.

    How does this unit hold up during the winter months? Could this be used in a cottage that is closed up / no heat in the winter?

    Asked by: JoJoe
    Like the rest of cottage plumbing, it must be completely drained of all water, and should be disconnected from its power supply. I have a similar unit with over a dozen winters on it. Purge the air out of it in the spring ( turn on the hot water tap until there's no more air coming out of it ), before connecting the power. When empty, there's nothing in it that would be damaged by the cold.
