Need to find a tankless water heater asap. If anyone has one or has seen one in town anywhere, please PM me.

Certainly with this cold you need LOTS of hot water shuffles.

I take it you're talking about the electric water heater that goes right on the shower head.

Doesn't Harriette have a gas-powered instant water heater? That's "gas" in the British sense.

Peter I know I'm full of it - but no - I don't have one. LOL

I have a solar water heater that has it's own 40 gallon tank.
At the apartment in town I had one of those things that fit onto the shower head and almost electrocuted myself a number of times - they tend to short out.
In the states I had a true tankless system but it ran on natural gas and was sparked by electricity. I think I saw one advertised someplace here in Belize. I would talk to Mr. Castillo - he would know.

Take only pictures leave only bubbles

3500 watts? yikes
Thats like 16 amps of 240 volt power.
That would stall most home generators.

They're commonly available in the UK, and are perfectly safe to use (in that environment). I own two in apartments I rent out, both (natural) gas powered. Of course, the electric ones are 240v.

Why not ask in a hardware shop with British roots? There are several in Belize City.

Get a laser hot water heater, check at Wally's or Benny's, on demand, no tank, excellent, about the size of a lunch box.

I have one that I installed one year ago. It worked for six months, then worked intermitently. I replaced it and have it in storage. Coco (plumber/electrician) said it can be repaired.
