2 Questions from the Community

  • is the dhc 8-2 a good one for in a work shop in northern ohio? mainly just for washing hands and a bucket of hot water

    A. The Stiebel Eltron DHC 8-2 is good for a single sink in a hand washing application. It can handle about 1.5 gallons per minute, so depending on the size of the bucket, it may or may not work.
