No twisting the statement "truly a hot water heater"

I am replying to that, and the fact that the water is not hot that is being heated, unless you are in hot weather

And just for the record, the HydroHot turns on and re-heats the water when it gets down to a chilly 165 degrees. Yes. It reheats at 165 degrees truly a hot water heater.

How do you REHEAT without a tank?

Even redbaron knew that there was a portion of water in the HydroHot that was kept hot. You must have missed that part. Or are you believing that water can only be heated in a tank?

Water is reheated in the heat exchanger, where boiler fluid is on one side and the hot water is on the other of a series of metal tubes. That water most of the time is the exact same temperature as the boiler fluid. During showers and dishwashing water flows thru and gets heated. The other 23.5 hours a day the water just sits there and get heated and reheated all day. When the boiler fluid gets down to 165 degrees the HydroHot turns on and reheats the boiler fluid and the water in the tankless heat exchanger, from a hot 165 degrees back up to the cutoff point. The HydroHot can use a diesel fueled burner or an electric heating element to heat the boiler fluid depending on the operation mode selected. The water is never in contact with either source of heat to the boiler fluid. The water is hot when it's reheated to an even hotter degree over and over during the day. Truly a hot water heater the majority of the day. Only during short specific times does it heat cooler temperature water from ambient to hot when it leaves the heater.

Next let me ask you if your refrigerator cools your food.

It depends on what your definition of "hot" is


If hot is defined as >=165F, then my statement holds true.


If hot is defined as >=120F, then your statement is technically true, but then it creates a whole level of discussion and qualifications to ensure that the heater was already operating when called a hot water heater, and only applies to pre-heated hydronic systems.


So there may be such a thing as "a water heater that is occasionally a hot water heater"

(First suspect is water in fuel) he said yes. He showed me the receipt. I noticed it was for 87 octane. We had to tow the coach to the lot and drain 150 gallons of diesel/gas mixture. This was a experienced driver. He was just tired and worn out. A big mistake.

Now you have so many stipulations and qualifications that it'll take Deep Blue to decipher what qualifies. Let's just do this, take a bowl of 120 degree water and hold your hand in it for a minute. If at the end of a minute you still believe that isn't hot...........
