I don't get this. Why would I draw cold water from the tank rather than directly from the town inlet? Just to make sure I understand: Cold water enters the tank from the town inlet, gets heated, and...

You may have answered this in a previous thread, but is the voltage related to the number of cells in the battery and is that what adds weight? Do you think 4.9 lbs is too heavy for a handheld tool?...

How big a difference would this make for ease of splitting?
