.. its like basically can they be installed **nextto inconjunction** with a **40 gallon hot water heater **that is **already present**

..)..in order to not remoue the 40 gallon heater, in order to comply with building codes..(..

but basically can they be installed in conjunction like **rotating with the main 40 gallon hot water heater **that **would not be remoued**,

but only for the puposes of turning on **when** the 40 gallon tank s**starts to run low/cold**..

..the 3 prospectiue heaters..

.. 2: portable tankless units, with high gpm, :

- large portable tankless unit - **with 4gallonsperminute,flow**..

..**3questions**..

.. for these 2)below( **""portable units""**..

- 1) how do you install either of these units indoors,.. in an inside shower??


- 2) can the 2nd one below, be installed inside, euen though it says for use outside??

how do you do it?

- large portable tankless unit - **with 4gallonsperminute,flow**..

https://www.homedepot.com/p/EZ-Tankl...02NG/207158891

- another portable tankless unit - this one **with 3gallonsperminute,flow**

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Eccotemp...-SET/302006849


- 3) also can it/they be installed on an **inside shower**, or **neighboring** an **inside hot water heater**, and regulated -**so that** it runs some times, but basically **only when**, the 40 gallon tank ..)..that is already present, and installed and working..(..**starts to run low/cold**.. .. . like when the 40 gallon tank **starts to run low/cold**.. then one of these would just **flip on and start working**.. .. ..




- - - - - - - - -

- - - - - - - - -



.. ..the next question is abt an electric standalone unit.. ..

.. .. )..it could be any one, but i am just using this one as an example..(.. ..

- 4) **..can..** an/)asmall( electric stand alone unit, such as this one)below(, be installed, inside: **next-door-to/neighboring** a normal 40 gallon hot water heater.. so that it operates, ****only**** when the 40 gallon hot water heater is running low, .. .. ..

.. (..like in conjunction with it or something..).. **without remouing** the 40 gallon hot water heater

- electric stand alone unit - ).. sorry i sent the wrong link for this one in the other email ..(

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CPTTH33...c-2dcbf0177599

Install an electric tankless in the shower so you can turn it on when the 40 gallon tank runs out.
