Questions & Answers
An average hot shower here in the US is about 104 degrees F, and staying under 115. Keep in mind I'm talking the temp of the shower water coming out of the shower, not the temp in a hot water tank which is substantially higher. Also, a shower usually flows at a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. So, in looking at this products specs it doesn't look like it can handle hot showers at all as the temperature to flow rates listed here are much lower. Am I wrong, did I miss something? Is this actually intended to be used as a water heat supply for showering?
Rheem RTE27 the water will raise to 70* at a rate of 2.73 gallons per minute. The more the water is flowing the less in rise of the degree. Example if the water is coming in at 40* and the shower is using 2.5 gpm the rise will be 70* on top of the incoming water temp. Ground water temp varies depending upon the location.
