    Just used my new eccotemp L5 water heater for the first time today :) Oooohh it's so nice having hot water, I seem to spend ages cleaning frames but not today with hot water the muck seemed to come off so quick. I fitted it to my back door and the only problem was it was a bit windy today and it would get blown out now and again :( other than that I love it love it love it love it love it....

    im pretty sure this is the same heater that you have. what are they like, do they have a 20 minutes cut off timer?

    ive got one without a 20 minute timer, its never overheated, they are not necessary. i Have 2 pumps running from one, and regualrly run it for over 20 mins. i want the find a heater that does not have one incase i need to replace mine in the future.

    For safety wise they are and to protect the heater from damage! The people that are replacing the boilers due to them breaking are the ones without this timer!

    the heaters that are being replaced are the cheap chinese one that have the timer, the fogwash does not have a timer, i have never heard of those breaking down, the l5 that corwoods sell does not have a timer, i have never heard of those breaking down, and my marey heater from america does not have one, it comes with a 3 year warranty, so they must be pretty reliable.

    so the only unreliable heater is on that has a timer, so they obviously dont really accomplish much.
