Smile Electric Water Heater

Although we have an immersion heater with 3 settings (30 - 60 & 120 mins) I am thinking of installing one of these electric water heaters.

We have had electric showers installed at our previous apartment so I know the advantages but don't want to go down that route now because of the difficulty in wiring it in - supply is a long way from where we would want it and we don't want a cable on the tiles running around 3 walls!

So am I right in saying that because we have a washing machine plumbed in upstairs and a power socket close by in a large bathroom which we rarely use - we could just get a plumber to mount this unit on the wall above - tap into the water feed - and plug it in through a timer plug.

My plan would be to set it to come on for a couple of hours early morning - ready for a shower when we get up and again for about an hour at 6pm to give us water for the evening - does that makes sense?

I was told that these are more effective than putting your immersion on to heat up what is in effect a very large tank of very cold water - first thing in the morning - so thinking this would be more effective.

Also our immersion heater is a wired in little box on the wall so it does ot have a plug so we end up hanging around each morning waiting for the water to heat up before we can shower.

Any guidance would be appreciated from anyone who uses one of these.
