Please note: These numbers may not reflect your appliances or fixtures due to differences in water pressure from location to location. Differences are also due to efficiency of appliances and fixtures.

If you have a multi shower head system - you need to find out how much water all the shower heads will consume per minute. Make sure the tankless water heater you use will provide the correct amount of hot water. If you don't see one - contact us and we will advise you how to use a tankless water heater with a multi-shower head system.

One last thing: We are assuming that your input water (ground) is 50-degrees. Your actual input water may be slightly colder (not likely) or very much warmer (likely in warm climates). You should check and review your input water temperature before relying on any of the above numbers. If your ground water is colder - then you will get less output - if your ground water is warmer - then you will get more output.
Average ground water in the USA is between 50 and 55-degrees winter to summer.
