1 Overcurrent protection sized at 100% of load. Tankless water heaters are considered a non-continuous load. 

2 Copper conductors with a temperature rating of 75 °C or greater must be used. Conductors should be sized to maintain a voltage drop of less than 3% under load. 


These are recommendations. Check local codes for compliance if necessary.
