    No real difference, only build quality.

    Does what it say on the tin. Just put some better batteries in for the ignition as the ones that come with it are poop.

    eccotemp may offer a longer warranty but if you buy 1 at 80 and it lasts a year its not a bad deal is it.

    personally i would go for the Eccotemp one, better built, better cover if anything went wrong.

    nothing has gone wrong with my eccotemp yet plus its so eary to use.

    plus you got to think about pumps too! the great the L per minute the better pump you need really!

    It is the amount of water it can handle, but the bigger the heater, the higher the flow required to get it to ignite.

    i have an l5 and its been faultless for the four years or so i have used it-ok its a bit battered now but still works,its good to go hot now so you can iron out the niggly bits so it won't let you down in winter(make sure you drain it at night in the winter or simply disconnect and take it inside
