Use the Instant-Flow Micro Tankless Water Heater in:

Preschools -- Instant, unlimited hot water is very helpful for daycares and preschools. Thermostatically-controlled or Factory-preset models prevent scalding and reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses. Heaters are IAPMO certified to meet the same lead-free mandates as schools, which ensures the safest water possible for children.

Restaurants -- The benefits of Chronomite tankless water heaters are valued in health, food service, and safety environments, among several others.

Pet salons and beauty salons -- Faucets in individual hair-washing sinks can be preset for a consistent temperature that is comfortable and safe for customers. This feature cuts down on time wasted waiting for the water to heat up.

Spa showers and pools -- Instant hot water at perfect temperature is ideal for visitors. Because water is only heated on demand, this unit saves energy by being non-operational when not in use.

Coffee Shops -- Espresso machines can use the preset or thermostatic control feature to keep water at a consistent temperature for beverages. Its compact size makes it ideal for small spaces. Lead-free certification means water is safe to drink.

Lower utility costs for low income housing -- Chronomite tankless water heaters are 99% more energy efficient than standard tank heaters because they only use energy when hot water is streaming through the plumbing. This dramatically reduces hot water delivery time and saves electricity. In warm climates where only a small temperature rise is needed, hot showers are cheaper than ever.

Guest Houses, Luxury Suites, and Kiosks -- Chronomite's space-saving tankless water heater design is easy to conceal anywhere it is needed--perfect for small sinks, dishwashers, wet bars, and other places where space efficiency and aesthetics are important. Remote hot water is even possible for mobile carts in stadiums, amusement parks, and recreation areas.

Emergency safety equipment -- In times of fire, chemical or health risk, water is delivered instantly and at a safe temperature. Drench showers, eye washes, and hoses benefit from a preset temperature and a two-second delivery time. Additionally, the element assembly of a Chronomite heater uses the flow-through abrasive action of water to create a self-cleaning feature that prevents calcification and alkali buildup. These units perform the first time, every single time.

Mop cleaning areas -- Instant hot water delivered conveniently in two (2) seconds, at a temperature that is preset for proper cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 


I want to install the Chronomite heater in a vertical position.
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are built for horizontal installation. When properly installed, the heater will have the inlet and outlet on the right side of the unit when you are facing it. Installing vertically will risk a burn out of the heating coils and the heater will not be covered by warranty. Please refer to the Installation and Operation sheet for the water heater model you are installing.

I want to plug my Chronomite water heater into a wall outlet. Where is the plug?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are U.L. listed. This means that the heater is required to be "hardwired" to a dedicated breaker. To gain optimum performance and keep the product under warranty, it must be installed in this manner. Please refer to the Installation and Operation sheet for the water heater model you are installing.

How do I decrease the water temperature coming from my Chronomite Tankless Water Heater?
The Instant Temp model is the only heater in this Chronomite line that allows for temperature adjustment when it is supplied with a potentiometer that permits a bypass of the factory preset. The SR model is designed to provide a predetermined temperature to the incoming cold water. The M model can be factory preset for consistent water temp.

May I install my Chronomite tankless water heater outside?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are subject to freezing. For outdoor installation, it is recommended that the heater be installed in an enclosed manner that it may not be exposed to the elements. The heater should also be winterized like any other outdoor products that makes use of water.

Why is my heater tripping the breaker?
Confirm first that the heater has been hardwired to a non-GFI, dedicated breaker. Then check that the breaker size is appropriate for the heater being installed (Example: If it is a 30-amp water heater, a 30-amp breaker is necessary). Please refer to the Installation and Operation sheet for the water heater model you are installing.

Can I install my Chronomite Tankless heater in the ceiling?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are built for point-of-use applications. For optimum use and performance, they should be installed within 18" from the point of use. Please refer to the Installation and Operation sheet for the water heater model you are installing.

Will a Chronomite Tankless water heater supply my whole house?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are built for a point-of-use application. They are not built to provide hot water to a whole house.

What voltage is my heater and is it okay if it doesn’t match?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are volt specific. For optimum performance and use, as well as to maintain warranty, the heater must be wired for the correct voltage. The voltage can be found on the label that is adhered to the unit's front.

What phase are your heaters?
Chronomite Tankless Water Heaters are single phase.

What size copper or flex tubing do I use?
3/8" OD as per installation instructions.

Are compression fittings supplied with the heater?
Two (2) compression fittings are supplied. They are 3/8" x 1/4" NPT.

What is the maximum operating temperature?
It is 140°F in compliance with the Underwriter’s Laboratories listing.

Do I need the electricity applied to the heater to know if the heater will turn on?
Chronomite Tankless water heaters are pressure and flow activated. The flow switch makes a faint click sound when the faucet is turned on, with or without electricity.

Are Chronomite heaters ASSE 1070 certified?
ASSE 1070 is a mixing valve code pertaining to water temperature limiting devices. It is designed to limit incoming ultra-high hot water supply temperature (120°F - 180°F) to normal, tempered water temperatures (105°F - 110°F), to minimize scalding risk to the end user. Instantaneous water heaters cannot undergo certifications nor testing to this standard, since Chronomite heaters are built to heat incoming cold, ambient supply water only. As stated by American Society of Sanitary Engineering (ASSE) on their official letterhead, the ASSE standard is for water temperature limiting devices, and the various test procedures of this standard requires that the device must have a hot water inlet, a cold water inlet and a mixed water outlet. This standard is therefore not applicable to instantaneous electric water heaters and as such cannot be subjected to ASSE 1070 tests. We have a letter from both IAPMO and ASSE stating these facts on their respective letterheads. Chronomite has a list of manufactures that are certified for ASSE 1070; the good news is, not a single water heater company is on the list. Of course, the Instant-Temp models and Instant-Flow Micro utilize a microprocessor technology that allows for field-adjustable temperatures or factory preset, and can therefore be deemed as having an "anti-scald feature."

The M30L works awesome with a Delta touch faucet.

FYI... the connection is 3/8" compression.

Only issue I had was that there was less flow when moving the faucet lever to hot and the unit was shutting off when trying to adjust for warm water. Come to find out, after speaking with Chronomite, there is a pinhole restrictor under the compression connector on the hot discharge outlet that had to be removed for low pressure systems.

All is great now on our home's well system between 35 & 55PSI and the unit is small enough to fit in a tiny sink vanity! Thanks for the great heater!

Advantages: the unit is small enough to fit in a tiny sink vanity!
