Bosch GL2.5 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good small water heater At my house, the central water heater is too distant to get hot water quickly in the kitchen. I installed this heater under the kitchen sink and connected its inlet to the HOT water line so the tank would be refilled with warm water if I depleted the reserve. The heater works well, but I had to set the thermostat all the way up. There is an inner cover behind the front cover that is not mentioned in the instructions; I had to figure out how to get the inner cover back on. (It would have been simple to make a small hole in the inner cover to adjust the thermostat without removing the cover.) The heater is totally silent in operation. The insulation is very good, and the heater retains heat well and recovers quickly. The main heat loss is from the relief valve. The initial water is very hot (about 150°F after resetting the thermostat), although it moderates after I draw about a litre of water. Still, it is adequate and fulfils my needs. Tip: Whilst searching for a suitable drip pan, I found a rectangular cake pan at Wal-Mart that was ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Fantastic Long Overdue" Finally the plumber came and installed the 2.5 gal. heater under my kitchen's triple sink which was a piece of cake for him. Not one complaint from the plumber upon install. I decided to connect its inlet to the COLD water line as to not defeat the purpose of saving $$. I did have the plumber to increase the thermostat to high since I felt the inlet water cooled the temp too quick set on the default temp and I haven't been without hot water since. It's wonderful having instant hot water for a pot or two, etc. The gas water heater on the far side of the house is still used for the dishwasher and I'm not concerned with wasting water and power/gas to heat up the inlet water supply after washing a dish or two. This heater performs as advertised and also FaucetDirect.com has the best price with free shipping on the Internet and delivered quickly. I still need to purchase a rectangular cake pan to be used as my drip pan. Men, Mother's Day is around the corner, surprise that wife, mother or both with this gift and you will not regret it. I regret not having my husband/plumber to install this useful heater prior to his death years ago. I didn't mind providing this feedback as I used previous comments as a determining factor to make my purchase of this Bosch water heater. Truth is I could actually use another one of these in a vanity area. Thank you,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit - Great price I received my unit within a week. It was a straight forward install. Love the hot water without the five minute wait that I had. One problem - the wife is unhappy that I did not install trhis unit a long time ago. No question I will recommend this unit and I will come back if I need something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tankless water heater I installed this in my garage for a source of hot water. So far I am pleased with this 2.5 gal hot water heater. It was very easy to install and plug into a regular outlet. My only concern is making sure that I diconnect it this winter so that it will not freeze (unheated garage).

  • I am considering using this heater for my portable concession sink which is used in an outdoor environment. Will this heater be suitable for this ? Thanks

    A. The Bosch GL2.5 will work perfect and it will provide a max temp of 145° F.
  • I have Jack and Jill side by side sinks in the same bathroom. Can I use one heater with two Ts for the input and output to feed both faucets in the bathroom?

    A. The Bosch GL2.5 is only meant for one faucet. each faucet should have their own dedicated unit as it will not product enough heat to run both.
