Water Heaters!

All you Thai home dwellers!

Do you use a water heater for your shower, washing machine, or kitchen sink?

If so, how many Watts did you go with?

I feel that 6000 Watts is enough for the Master shower, and a smaller number in the smaller bathrooms.

Thoughts?

Nothing less than 4500w.   Steibel Eltron with 'plastic' tank ideal for hard (artesian) water.

Is the water still hard at the north and north east? Hard water is a major problem at Bangkok area due to salt water intrusion, salt/crystal deposits always form at the bottom of my kettle.

But isn't the north and north east far enough from the sea not to have such severe problem?

Hard water is considered to be high in mineral content, usually magnesium and calcium.

Ah ok, thanks for clarifying. I was confusing hard water with salty water

What is a good hot water heater for showers?

And what are the price ranges?

Thanks

And WTF is "hard water"?  😐 

Easy one 1st, hard water = highly mineralised water, usually from ground sources,  Magnesium and iron can be filtered although calcium is the one which causes most problems.  Water softening systems may be installed for better quality of washing/lathering, but not always as desirable for normal consumption. 

For water heaters, I prefer Stebel Eltron units, ideally their plastic tank models where applicable, wall or under bench.   For large external mounted tanks, Stebel Eltron have a variety sizes and options.
