GreyEagle, was it this one? http://www.amazon.com/Eccotemp-L5-Po...ds=eccotemp+l5

I picked one up. It isn't installed yet, but I tested it out and it does a good job bringing cold well water to up to an uncomfortably hot temperature as long as the flow is kept moderate. In my case it's perfect. I'm using an ultra-low flow shower head so it will keep up just fine. My one complaint is that the exhaust gases are hotter than I'd like. I was measuring ~160C (320F) exhaust temperature. It doesn't have a fan so those exhaust temperatures may be necessary for a chimney-like effect, but in my opinion it could use a bigger heat exchange so more of that heat goes into the water.
