VERDICT

An all around performer, Eccotemp Systems’ L5 water heater is compact, energy-efficient, and dependable.

Eccotemp Systems’ L5 water heater is a portable water heater that features an upgraded stainless steel shower hose, battery igniter, and strainer. This compact water heater can be used in the home and beyond. Because it’s powered by liquid propane, you can take the L5 to camping trips or install in cabins with ease! From hot showers to power wash, you can use this water heater to clean your car, wash the dogs, or take warm baths! It’s a versatile tankless water heater with an output of about 2080 PSI.

The battery igniter makes the L5 so convenient to use, no electricity needed. The system is very flexible, it can even work seamlessly on modified water systems. Of course, we also loved the affordable price tag and the ease of installation.

As with all gas-powered home appliances, the L5 is prone to gas leaks, which is a major concern since there’s very little signs that gas is escaping from the system. Our advice is to turn off the gas if the heater is not in use. This might be cumbersome to some but it’s an effective way to prevent a gas leak, especially in the home.  Minor issues aside, we found the L5 a highly capable and safe water heater. It’s no doubt versatile and efficient.
