Will they heat enough water for the washing machine?

My brother has one in his condo. Totally jealous. I'll ask him about how he washes clothes.

Isn't the idea of these things that they heat the water instantly as it moves through the...stuff in it?

I know that's really technical, but I don't think running out of hot water is an issue like it is with a tank?

Yeah, that's the gist of it. They never run out of hot water.

I kinda figured. But how quickly can they heat the water? Dr. Z, please do ask your bro.

I too would appreciate any real world experiential knowledge of these devices.

You do realise that all Dr Zh's brother is going to do is pose for a pic while humping it, right?

I know you get a tax credit if you buy one for your home.

They're pretty awesome if you have a lot of people in the house. Last time I was down in CT, my dad and his family were there as well. I think there were six of us taking showers each morning. No problems at all. Pretty amazing.

I'm sure he's saving money with it, cause he doesn't have to keep a tank of water hot for any length of time.
