Truma Comfort Update
Yesterday I went to the Truma service center in Lakeland Florida to have my Truma Basic water heater upgraded to the Comfort model. Beside the fact that the service center address is so new did not apppear on my GPS or iphone, it was a good experience. Dave, the manager and tech was awesome.
My motivation for the upgrade was to be able to de-calcify the unit myself. Since I live in Florida, freeze protection was not a major concern, unless I take Slo-Poke up on his offer to freeze in the desert one winter, which I may do some day. I also like the idea of preheated water getting to me quicker.
This morning I turned the unit on to “Comfort” and used my on board water pump. I took a five gallon bucket in to the shower and filed the bucket until the water got hot. I measured the water and it got hot in just 3 quarts or about 15 seconds where with the “Basic” I would count to about 25-30 Mississippi. I never did measure the amount of water to get hot with the basic. After lettting the water cool for an hour or so I turned on the kitchen faucet and had hot water in 15 seconds where as before it was well over a minute.
I am happy with the improvement. The installation looks very clean. I am thinking this is a worthwhile mod.
And thanks Ryan for the hookup with Truma
