We are very happy with the Marey. It feels like a quality appliance. Don't know why it goes from gas to water line thread. So far it is working great. It is new. It does look and feel quality. Arrived in fine shape. The Styrofoam seemed to be enough. The box did take a bit of a beating. It arrived in 3 days to Hawaii.
Not going to do a hard plumb install till the middle of next month ..so I did a temporary rigged up install in my driveway to check it out ..It worked Great after I figured out the two D batteries need to be fresh to get all the spark needed to fire up the burners ..held the water temp at 124 degrees after adjusting the flow down and the heat up...Looking forward to actually installing it in my cabin..worked great!
We finally installed it , and It works great! A little touchy on the water temp but our water temp going into it varies depending when we pumped it to the supply tank..Awesome never thought we would have Hot running water in our cabin !!
