Cut off the hot water annually and to avoid at this time fuss with basins installed water-heater. If my apartment was a place for a barrel of water, called boiler, I would have found it, it does not load strongly grid. But there is no place! ¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯ .

The operating principle of the flow-through water heater is based on the instantaneous heating flowing through its water heating spirals. The more powerful teny the hot water outlet. But the problem with many apartments in the load 5 kW is the limit. It should take into account that the aluminum wiring in older homes simply burned up, and there to fire not far away. Especially if you do not set the correct machine on entering the electricity in the apartment.

I was given 5 kW for an apartment, I have a new wiring. So conditionally possible to connect my device power 4000 watt load on the grid. But again there is no matchmaking. Sockets and plugs in a 16 amp apartments and they are designed for

3520 watt. So you have at your own risk short overload sockets and plugs during operation. Do not include other energy-intensive equipment.
