Mine cost more to install than an electric or gas storage system but
it's way cheaper to run.

I really wanted to go solar, but they're cost prohibitive compared to
just about any other system and they require a secondary heating system
anyway for cloudy days.

The gas starts burning as soon as the water flows. It takes less than ten
seconds for hot water to come out after turning on the tap, compared with
maybe three or four with the old storage system. The water isn't quite
as hot either, only 50C instead of 70 or 80C. I haven't measured how
much water I'm wasting, but between the grey water system and the rain
water tank I think I make up for it.

Are we off topic yet?
