I would like to replace this Bosch, mostly to eliminate the standing pilot.. But it's hard to justify it, as in, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Indeed, hard to justify. In a tank heater, there's

And to think I've thought for a long time, "Why don't they just make roof tiles out of solar material?"

Just some thoughts on panning a wall mounted tankless WH...

Another reason to put a pan under a tankless water heater is the required maintenance. With a tank heater, you just connect a garden hose to the drain

No standing water heater! No pan either..

A Bosch tankless WH has adorned the wall where there used to be a tank type.. There is a pressure pop-off like the tankers, but its drain runs off and

YewGuise,

I've been lucky: previous house had a floor drain near water heater, as does current house.

If no floor drain, not sure a pan would be enough. It'd overflow.

So that's what SP was referring to. I hadn't heard about this bit of idiocy before. How incredibly stupid!

So they either set on the bench or in the chargers, but even in the chargers they seem to die...

That's the nice thing about the lithiums. You don't have to leave them in the chargers (indeed, you

KenAtPcs,

It is becoming more and more difficult to find bulbs "bluer" than 3000K, as California has created an LED bulb specification that requires the color temperature to be either 2700K or 3000K.

Anyone else made this leap?

Which leap? To new tools that use lithium, or to an adapter?

Personally, I don't have that many battery-powered tools... corded usually works OK for me. But I have replaced
