1) Copy following link for steps showing how to run white vinegar through Rheem tanklessx heat exchanger to partially remove scale that coats heat exchanger and reduces unit efficiency and causes error code IL:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#de-lime

2) Tankless are prone to scale inside heat exchanger and require yearly deliming to mitigate effects. Do the required yearly maintenance to avoid common error codes.

3) Expected cost of maintenance and repair is more expensive than estimated $1-8 monthly energy-bill savings from owning tankless.

no you do not, but it is a good idea to take the hydrogenerator apart and remove the waterwheel inside to protect it from damage(if you have anything that gets shot through the pump)
Connections are 1/2 inch.

Increase your flow, sounds like you are right at your activation rate.
1 way is to turn down the temp on the machine, so you dont have to mix in so much cold at your shower. Check to see if your mixing valve is bad, or your showerhead has restriction/scale built up in it.The other way is to turn on your lavatory fixture full hot before showering(which will keep hot water flowing through the machine as you adjust your temp to be comfortable.

I'm assuming you heater will let water flow through and it's not completely blocked with scale. There is a motorised valve that needs to be open. Start with the heater connected normally and run a hot tap. While it is firing turn off the power, this will leave the valve in it's open state.Now connect up your heater to the vinegar supply; do not turn the power back on.

Sediment in lines -Bosch Tankless Water heater


I would recommend a simple sediment filter housing be installed on the main water line coming into the house. Material cost about $100. Have a plumber install a bypass loop so you can just shut off 2 valves when you need to change it. I always install one with any tankless heater as cheap insurance against such a problem. As far as adding something to clean the lines I would refer to the manufacturer's instructions and use only what they recommend in order to preserve your warranty. For a solar water heater I prefer Velux.
