    Available in liquid propane only.
    Your equipment uses vapor propane,so you would need a tank designed to deal with both liquid and vapor.
    It would need to be mounted outside with the vent above the roof line for safety.
     
    The system also works great on modified water systems such as a 12 volt pump.
     
    Modified to me means you would have to add an accumulator tank to the system to maintain the required pressure.
    Some things to check into for thought.

    All propane begins as a liquid. I have one of these and it works pretty well( On 11" of vapor pressure). It is sometimes a little tough to keep the temp constant. I do have accumulators on my pumps, but they are cheap enough and help keep the noise level a little lower. Price is decent, have no durability report as I haven't had it long enough to know.

    Seems evenly divided to me between a water heater (tank) and an inline. Inline take less space (and might cost less to buy) and I'll bet the tank costs more to run.
     
    Wondering what others think? Are you glad you went with a tank or tankless?
    If you had to choose again, would you choose the same?
    Why?
    Thanks
