I dont think there is any maintenance, except maybe drain it when you are not expecting to use it for long periods. And replace the igniter battery.

Both of mine are really simple. Our manual says very little. One valve controls the gas flow and one controls the water flow. Depending on your pressure variance and uses, you set these for the specific use. As mentioned, I have settings for a bath and a setting for shower and/or kitchen sink.

I suppose there is a jet in there that may need to be cleaned occasionally, as propane is pretty dirty, really.

Oops. Mine's about 8 years old and came with a paper manual to translate. As I recall it doesn't have much for maintenance info but the water flow knob did seize up from that good bahia water and I had to pull off the knob and loosen it with pliers. I now spin it a couple times a year to keep it free. Just make sure you have your sweet spot marked.

Hey Larry. Sammy and Andy have had one several years now. Pepe set it up. I've used it a bunch of times and works fine. Tim has had one now for three or four years and he loves it. I've used his, too, and hot water was immediate. It's amazing how quickly it heats up. I was gonna get one in my new place but my shower location didn't really lend itself to it, without mounting it outside in a box. What is nice is having it very near the shower so you can adjust the temp.
