I have been looking for an on demand water heater propane or electric for my trailer because the health dept. said I don't have a good enough one for my three bay sink. Does anyone have any suggestions for brands or types.

I've dealt with the so called "health dept" at one of our sites. In our case, they are looking for a specif temp at the tap. Be aware that to achieve the required temps to pass inspection, some of these manufactures are use water saving aerators for their spec rating at the faucet enough to reduce flow thus slowing the water flow enough to pass.

Consider gallons per minute (GPM) vs water temp. By the time the food service passed at our site, it was barley a trickle of water to obtain pass the required HD inspection.

It's a racket from the government and the manufactures on this one. Look for GPM vs temp.

Good Luck.
