Important Parameters to Consider Prior to Purchase and Use
The position of the temperature pressure relief valve should be taken into account prior to unit installation.

Also, a water heater unit installed inside a cabinet may exhibit moisture problems. It is imperative for the user to find some way to connect it to the drain or provide a container for excess water to drip in to avoid water spillage.
Additional unit information, the 2.5-gallon, and 4-gallon units have ½” male NPT fittings while the 7-gallon unit has ¾” male NPT water fittings.
