How To Install A Small Electric Water Heater SharkBite PEX Ariston GL4S


The tank I installed:

This video is about how to install a small electric water heater. I did however err and should not have used PEX pipe right at the connection to the tank. It should be 18″ from the connection. So when you hook up yours, use copper pipe within the first 18″ of the tank. This is the Ariston GL4 S. It has a 4 gallon tank that is heated electrically with an element.
