<sigh>  Here we go again!

Since I never received a reply to my query the last time this cheesy device
was hawked on the newsgroup, perhaps the answer will now be forthcoming.

Once again... I really would like to know how long it took the 10 year old
girl to install a dedicated branch circuit with a GFCI receptacle underneath
the sink?  More than 10 minutes?

And disconnect the plumbing lines (of course they have to be the quick
disconnect kind) or your still in for plumbing work. The motor is
smaller than the chillypepper but delivers the water quicker? How did
he bend the laws of physics on that one? Just curious is all,
1/40=.025 hp 1/3= .33hp yet it out does the chillypepper by more than
triple woohoo! Gotta send my chilipepper to the dumpster and order one
of these for 50% more $$, NOT..

A review of the website shows the movie of the installation.  The
installation couldn't be easier.  The power and efficiency differences
between the chilipepper and the RedyTemp is a matter of engineering
and components used.  

The Chilipepper is a On-Demand / Push Button.  The RedyTemp does not
require a push button activation, but it can be configured to operate
as one if the owner desires that type of system.

I'm sure the serious readers of this message can see that the
responses from fictitious email addresses are just that with their
opinions...fictitious ...

Who's this SQLit character?  First he responds with the below message
where he stated that "IT WORKED FINE FOR A FEW YEARS" but then he
states that due to the cheap timer which wouldn't keep time,  this is
amazing...."HE OPENED UP THE UNIT AND PUT IN (soldered) A TIMER RELAY"
because of a timer that wouldn't keep time?    

Then later SEE SECOND MESSAGE...he posts that "IT WORKED FLAWLESSLY
FOR ABOUT 18 MONTHS THEN IT CRAPPED.  THE DEALER WAS LESS THEN
HELPFUL"

Does this guy Mr. SQLit actually expect the dealer to help him out
AFTER HE HAD MODIFIED THE CIRCUITRY BY SOLDERING IN A TIMER RELAY?  Is
this guy for real???

Maybe SQLit stands for SHOULD QUESTION LEGITIMACY OF HIS POSTINGS...or
maybe it stands for SHOULD QUIT LYING

I purchased something called ~Rediheat at a home show. Mine was cause
the SO
was nagging all of the time that it took so long to get hot water in
her
bathroom. It was connected to the hot and cold water lines under the
sink.
When called for it "pumped" the hotwater into the cold water pipe
until the
line got hot. It was in a fancy box with an el cheapo time clock on it
that would
 never hold time more than a day or two. I opened up and put a timer
relay on it
and use a push button to turn it on. I thought it worked fine but the
SO was
back into bitching mode again. ( I finally asked her to move out ) It
worked
fine for a few years and then the pump crapped out. Water is pretty
aggressive where I live.

I had one of these in my last house. Worked flawlessly for about 18
months
then it crapped. The dealer was less than helpful.

My opinion it is not worth the money that it costs. Try the box stores
or
just get a pump from your local industrial supply store and do the
undersink
connections yourself.
