|Hello, research has led me to this forum. I hope you can assist me in my conclusions.
To operate 2 showers (at the same time, so 4gpm?) back to back twice. In other words, 5 total showers, with the ability to run two of them at the same time. I understand this to mean 120 gal recovery rate.
Continuous hot water. Also, a desire to avoid the perceived danger of aluminum metal in my water.
It seems like condensing storage water heaters made of stainless steel would meet my needs. Models include the Polaris PG10-50-130-2NV (an AO Smith BTS 130) or the HTP Phoenix PH76-50 (a Westinghouse WGR050NG076 ?). The Polaris 30 gal units are probably big enough but I was wondering how that would effect filling a jacuzzi tub from time to time.
Am I headed down the right path here? Am I reaching the right conclusions based on research? I could go with the AO Smith Vertex and use powered anodes to avoid the aluminum if that is a better idea. It just seems like the stainless steel models output never ending hot water and still meet my gpm.
