    Sounds like he found one that rocks.

    I've been through dozens of low flow showerheads and have yet to find one rated for 2.5 gallons that provided an adequate shower for my tastes. A simple...

    Runs with bison mentioned that earlier so I'm scrapping the idea of a cutoff switch.




    I up-sized my service in order to handle the 3 - 40 amp breakers for a tankless unit, but after spending...

    Unfortunately, I only have room for 1 unit. Plus, I don't see how 2 - 40 gallon water heaters would yield more volume than an 80 gallon unit with simultaneous operation. Especially enough to justify...

    This is info I searched all over for when trying to decide if a tank heater was feasible (vs tankless). I'd spend $5 - $10 a month for hot water at the ready - but not $30-$40 a month. I couldn't...

    These units are designed for simultaneous operation.

    The amp rating of the breaker won't put any demand on the thermostat. How do you think you can plug a night light into a 20 amp circuit in your...

    #6.

    Always the option to run 2 separate 30 amp circuits, but not sure of the point.

    ... and please stop thinking about my nuts. :eek:
  8. Is there a downside to wiring a water heater for simultaneous operation?

    I'm planning on trying a 50 gallon water heater wired for simultaneous operation in lieu of a tankless unit for my barn. This will have a separate cutoff switch so it can stay off until needed, but I...
  9. Should flue be completely sealed up through the roof?

    I had my furnace replaced a few months ago and they moved it about 4 feet from its old location. I just noticed recently that the flue has an opening into the attic. It comes straight down to a "wye"...

    It's becoming more and more difficult to find shower heads with removable restrictors and, as WorthFlorida pointed out, those that haven't been engineered from the start with a lower flow rate. There...

    It's very difficult to get water usage requirements from my daughter, but after grilling her, it appears that the usage during that 1 hour per horse wash cycle is not as constant as I initially...

    That's what the idiot that redid my masterbath told me to do. He placed it at 75" (at 6' 1", I'm not unusually tall) from the shower floor and I guess he forgot about the bend in the arm and the...

    That's what I don't get, what law makes it illegal for a consumer to increase shower flow? There's a restriction on the manufacture and sale of shower heads that exceed 2.5 GPM out of the box - which...

    What is with the defensive posture of the moderators here to a simple question?

    "If you choose not to work within the framework of the law... you're on your own" ???

    Since when is it illegal...

    I don't work on the farm - I play on the farm. It is just land with a horse barn. My wife rides, and my son and I 4 wheel and paintball in the woods.

    The shower head will be for people and it will be located in the horse wash stall. It will only be used probably about 26 times a year, but typically it will be removing layers of mud/dirt from...

    There are quite a few with removable restrictors that I know of, but not many that I have any experience with to be able to determine the ones with the best flow.

    What is the best shower head for high flow?

    Looking for the best flow shower head after removing the flow restrictor.

    Also wondering if a 3/4" valve is worth the difference in conjunction with an unrestricted showerhead.

    Thanks for the help.

    Going to try and make a tank work. Then just wait and see if I need to add to the system.

    Is having the water heater wired for simultaneous operation an option to reduce recovery time?

    Side note: Why do the WH mfg'ers show the annual operating costs of 40, 50, 65 and 80 gallon units...

    Wish I knew. I'm just planning on providing overkill so I don't have to worry about it. I'd guess wash temp would be closer to 95-100 F.

    Not sure how many gallons - but it'll be far in excess of 2 GPM. I'll have a non-restricted 3/4" supply of hot and cold to the mixing valve and a virtually unrestricted sprayer. It takes about an...

    I have no allegiance to tankless - in fact, I'd prefer not to use one. However, I can't find a way to get the volume of hot water I need to wash my horses without draining the tank. I have no problem...

    How does a 50 Gallon tank - even with a blanket help in this situation?

    I really don't want to heat water for 20 days so that it is available on the 21st day when I need it. And I want to be able...
