I hope when things warm up it settles back to what we are use to, am I missing something that needs adjusted or tweaked, I did raise the control setting on the panel in the bathroom.
Our on demand doesn't have any settings like yours, but when we have very cold input water we use just the hot water knob (as normal) and turn the flow rate down as low as possible without turning it so low that the on demand kicks off. Water stays in the heater longer. Works for us to get hot showers.

Good luck!

How did you increase water pressure? Stared mine up today at home would heat and then stop because of water flow, call tech at Girard he said not enough water flow to make heater fire and run! How can you adjust?
Thanks!

I use an adjustable water pressure regulator like the Renator M11-0660R

I got mine from Amazon but they are available at just about any RV supply store. I think I spent about $40 on mine.
