Letter: Water heater would be needed at each faucet

Each heater would also need a chimney and a gas supply line. If you save anything it might be a little gas.

To the editor:

Water heater would be needed at each faucet

In regards to the letter from Russ Lennstrom.

You can’t save water with an instant water heater unless you have one installed at every faucet in the house.

That is not possible because each heater would also need a chimney and a gas supply line. If you save anything it might be a little gas.

Insulating the hot water pipes would not save you any water either and this would have to be done while the house is constructed. Impossible to do in a finished dwelling.

Also, instant water heaters cost a lot more than a tank.
