A digital panel displays the temperature of the water as it leaves the tank. There is also a sighting window, and 3 knobs all conveniently positioned on the outside of the front panel. There is a gas knob that will allow you to adjust the flow of incoming gas, and a water knob as well. The third knob gives you the ability to switch the water heater from Winter to Summer. The seasonal adjustment makes it possible to proactively react to the decreased change in water temperature that is common during the winter. By selecting the Winter setting, you will be engaging more burners within the water heater, allowing the unit to effortlessly adjust to the cooler incoming water, and efficiently deliver an endless stream of hot water. Excellent Performance Performance is this water heaters middle name! In only a few seconds, the Marey Tankless heats an unlimited amount of water on demand. It is actually capable of heating 3.1 gallons of water each minute! Capable of performing both when the incoming water pressure is low, and during power outages, this tankless is perfect for homes that have inconsistent water pressure (i.e. well water) and/or have frequent power outages. Safety Features With such strong performance features, one might think that safety was overlooked. But that certainly isn’t the case with the Marey Tankless. A gas leak and overheating mechanism is built in, as well as an anti-dry combustion safety device. You can have both performance and peace of mind with this tankless water heater. Pros: Ease of operation: The ability of knowing exactly the temperature of the outgoing water, makes adjusting your home hot water temperature a simple process. Additionally, it comes with a detailed user manual with clear instructions on how to install and operate. Affordable: The heater comes at a pocket-friendly price which matches your budget no matter how small.

The warranty is invalid if you do not register within the 30 day time frame. The warranty coverage is for replacement parts and labor for the first year, and only the parts are covered after the first 12 months.
