    If the other responses haven't been enough to convince you, go with instant. We put in a tank because it was slightly cheaper and now regret it!

    We would never go back.

    It also has an electrical backup.

    Only bad thing is not hot water if the power is out.... This has only happened once so far.
    The rinnais are plugged into a power point instead of being hard wired so if you have a generator you cans still use your HWS of course u need a generator but it's still handy

    Oh yeah, I can see that would work. Hadn't even thought if that thankfully the power doesn't go off often here.

    We all shower twice a day and I'm forever chasing the teenager out of the shower , I wash in hot water (but washing machine heats water it doesn't draw from the hot water system) and never an issue with running out of water.

    You do have to take into consideration where you are located ... for example we are on the Central Qld Coast, so probably better solar results than those located in say Canberra.
    What brand did you end up going with? I've been going around in circles trying to figure out if this is something we should install in our new house. Rebates end on Friday in Vic!

    MummasMilk - sorry I'm not much help! I'm in the midst of researching but we're in no rush to install a new system. If you're up north I'm sure solar would be your best bet.

    The Bosch HydroPower systems don't need any outside source to ignite, so power going out isn't an issue!

    We ended up with a Rheem ... we've had it for 18 months and still happy.
