The guys have nailed it pretty well. Get the tub with the heater in it. It will pay for itself shortly.

As for the tank less water heater. IF you are on a well they do not work the best. They need a real constant flow/pressure of water. They work best on a pubic water tower type of system. My sister put one in on her well. You where hot and cold depending on whether the well pump was on or not. The water would be cool when you where at high pressure and then too hot right before the pump would kick on. She took it out after about six months of fighting it.

I'm suprised to hear so many complaints about irregular water pressure and noone useing a whole house booster tank and pump. Lower cost boost pump alows lowering wellhouse pressure which extends expensive well pump life and saves enough electricity to run the booster pump. I never gave much thought to this until I saw a very clever set up on a place where he had a problem with running his well dry during peak water usage. Seems he had a constant year around stream to the well but it was at a low rate of flow. He had a large elivated tank that was filled in 24 hour timed intervals. He said pump maintainance dropped dramaticly when the pump no longer pumped against pressure. He had some gravity fed outdoor hydrants and booster for the house. They said there was an unexpected benifit when power went off as it often happens during storms,they still had running water albeit gravity fed.

da.bees: The issue is not the well pump having problems pumping it is how the systems work. A well with a pressure tank will have a 20 PSI low to high range. That is just how they work. An example of this is my system it kicks the pump on at 40 psi and off at 60 psi. The flow changes over the the pressure range. My well was tested at 100 gallons a minute flow. So water supply is not an issue.

A private tank system is a problem in cold climates. Plus you need a tall tank to have much pressure. Years ago they would have tanks up on the windmill towers in the warmer areas. Also you have a problem keeping stored water fresh. That is one reason public water is treated.
