The EcoSmart POU 6 is 5 kW at 208V, 5.5 kW at 220v and 6 kW at 240V. This Point of Use electric tankless water heater is built for single point-of-use applications such as hand sinks with a maximum flow of one (1) gallon per minute (GPM). It is ideal for small shops, wet bars, physicians' clinics, medical offices, sailboats, manufacturing facilities, RVs, restaurants, hotels, warehouses, retail stores, motels, schools, office buildings, gas stations, and more.

Its compact size fits easily under a cabinet or sink, or in very small areas. It is easy to install, sturdy and made of high-quality materials. The heat exchanger is made from stainless steel, and the heating elements are made of copper and brass. It is easily replaceable in the field, unlike other point of use water heaters on the market that need custom-made cartridges or complete exchanger replacements.

These point of use models have a digital temperature indicator on the front. It does not have a temperature control. Your output temperature depends on your incoming water temperature and water flow rate. Note however, that this heater will allow water to flow though at a rate higher than 1 GPM; its maximum flow rate is much higher.

Compact and dependable, the new ECOSMART POU models bring impressive performance in a wonderfully small package. All at a budget-friendly price.

Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")

Q1: How do I replace the heating element on the POU 6?
A1. Replacing the heating element on the Ecosmart POU6 tankless water heater is fairly simple. But since removing the water heater cover is necessary, and there is a risk of injury or death due to high voltage, Ecosmart recommends that a licensed electrician do the work. Here are the steps:

1. Disconnect power.
2. Remove cover.
3. Unscrew the two steel screws on the end of the element plug and remove the two wires.
4. Unscrew the element from the heating chamber. The POU6 uses 1 element.
5. Tightly, securely screw in new elements and replace wires and cover.

The Ecosmart POU 6 uses one heating element available for purchase here.

Q2: Can I install the ECO 11 outdoors?
A2: Ecosmart tankless water heaters are designed for indoor installation. Installation outdoors is acceptable only if mounted an enclosure that protects it from dust, debris, rain, splashed water, insects, and direct sunlight. It must not be installed where it may be exposed to freezing temperatures. If any moisture is inside it when it freezes, the warranty is void.
