20 minute showers? My dad called those "Hollywood showers" and they were banned in my house growing up. But seriously, what do you do in there for 20 minutes?

EDIT: The longest mine take is 15 minutes but that's if I decide to shave in the shower too.

I miss apartment life, where I never had to pay for hot water. Replaced the shower head with a "great canadian showerhead" - one of the old metal ones that flows an enormous amount of water. I took 20 minute plus showers. I'd just stand in the shower for about 5 minutes in pure comfort without doing anything... eventually waking up and realizing "oh yeah, I guess I should throw some shampoo on my head or something"

Alas, I now pay for my own hot water, and have a septic system on its way out

It seems that tankless heaters are the only style used in Japanese residences. In the places that I stayed, they were all LP fueled as far as I could tell. I didn't really learn anything about their ratings or efficiency, but my gas bill never seemed outrageous and I did tend to take ridiculously long showers in the winter after freezing my ass off all day.

They're common in Europe, too. Probably has something to do with the fact that there are lots of structures over there that were built before domestic hot water supplies were common.

They could be a left-over solution from yesteryear. None of my residences were more than 20 years old and all of the new homes and apartments going up in the area had heaters mounted on the exterior.

I quite like my tankless water heater, and I just retrofitted it into my house.

I'm looking at something like this:

How hard would it be to install myself, just for the shower?

First, this needs a 50amp circuit. and then it's not going to be so great in the winter if you live in a cold climate.

Also, running a 50 amp circuit is a major undertaking unless you know what your doing.

third, you're in an apartment. Your lease does not permit you to modify the unit or do any repairs on your own (i hope it does not). If you install this it becomes a fixture and thus the property of the landlord when you move out.

If you do this you should be prepared to be in default and asked to leave the apartment. If you were my tenant I'd evict your ass with out a second thought.

That and he would have to cut a hole in the drywall on the other side of the shower, cap the hot going in, do some fucking around to get a pipe to the hot in the shower, then patch the hole.

I'd only install anything if I could do it in a way that I could 100% reverse without too much trouble. But for all the reasons in this thread, it looks like it's been ruled out.

When my tank leaks I'm going this route.

Infinite hot water AND savings? Why not...
