The new Ariston GL4S has many new improvements over the older Ariston GL4. The Ariston GL4 has a new temperature adjustment knob on the front of the unit to raise and lower the temperature from 65 Deg F to 145 Deg F while on the older Ariston GL4 you would have had to remove the blue oval cover to access the temperature control knob.
The Ariston GL4S also has a new improved thermostat that features a new sensing probe that is attached to the thermostat and inserts into the cavity of the new element so the heater can adjust temperatures quicker and maintain a more consistent heat.
The Ariston 4-gallon point-of-use electric mini-tank water heater eliminates the wait time for hot water to come from the sink faucet. You can install the heater independently or in-line with a larger water-heating source. You need no hard wiring to power your unit; simply plug it into any standard outlet and this heater's ready to go. The glass-lined tank ensures long life, and the superior insulation provides quick recovery and greater energy efficiency. This 120-volt, 1500-watt water heater weighs 17 pounds and measures 14-by-14 by-12-1/4 inches. Ariston backs its heater with a manufacturer's 6-year limited warranty for the heat exchanger and a 1-year limited warranty for parts.
