I need water heaters for the upstairs bathroom and the downstairs kitchen sink, we also need a shower in the bathroom. These need to run on electricity and utilise ordinary taps. I would consider separate units but would one service all?
Cost is a factor but also so is efficiency and it needs to be able to fit under a kitchen sink or in a cupboard, it must be able to utilise "normal" taps.
Kitchens - We wouldn't recommend the Powerstream for use in a kitchen where hot water and faster flow rates are required. The Powerstream is designed to provide warm water for hand washing and showering with water temperature fluctuating during winter and summer months.
Bathrooms - the Powerstream is ideal for use within a bathroom. Please note that the Powerstream is designed for use with spray taps.
Point of Use - The Powerstream is designed as a 'point of use' water heater, meaning the unit will fit underneath a sink or in close proximity to the tap outlet. The unit is not designed to provide water through long pipe runs such as installed upstairs to provide warm water down stairs.

I have an electric shower which is fine. Can I fit this water heater to supply two hand basins
If I can fit this heater would I need to upgrade the MCB in the distribution board
Yes. The Powerstream Eco can supply warm water to two hand basins for hand washing.

Need it to heat one basin upstairs one sink downstairs
We are taking water tank out replacing with power stream eco to feed hot water to one basin upstairs and one sink downstairs is it suitable?
The Powerstream Eco is designed to supply warm water at point of use and is therefore most effective when installed close to the taps (a typical installation is directly under the sink/taps where the hot water is required)
If the application requires a long pipe run the unit becomes less effective as the water cools whilst in the pipework. It would also take time for the warm water to reach the downstairs tap outlet.
