Can’t live without it, 5 stars

Far better than Reclaim white label imported rebadged which is a copy of Sanden (70% same with Chinese controller). Cheaper Reclaim unit has tank has no dedicated resistor well. No dedicated flow and return ports, default tank is cheap vitreous enamel. The thermistor in Reclaim is like a catheter inserted in the machine via the shared cold water mains and heat pump flow port. The reliability of no dedicated resister well means that the Reclaim needs a controller that can turn on and off many times, while a Sanden will do most people’s hot water on one 2-4 hour run each day without a hiccup. 

Sanden served me and my extended family well for 12 years.
