    hot water


    well, seems like my 35 year old Paloma has shit the bed, I thought is may have been inconsistent water pressure coming in due to the bad check valve, but now that that is fixed, the hot water ain't any better, the flow sensor is fucked and I ain't getting hot water at any flow rate now.

    these are the heaters I am looking at, not necessarily purchasing from the vendor in the links

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Rinnai-Prop...C2b7CDzTa1p1Zs

    they all proclaim a 10gpm, (or close to it) but that is a 35 rise in warmer climates, I figure a 65 rise (55-120 might get me 6gpm, what I need to fill my 3/4" piping

    there are cheaper units, but all these proclaim 0.93% on efficiency, cheaper units use more gas

    I'm actually leaning toward the AO Smith, but I have never heard of em like Rheems & Rinnais, the Rinnai is $600 more, and availability may be a problem, local Lowes & HD have the AO Smith and Rheem in stock

    we relocated it when we did the plumbing, and maybe 7 or 8 years ago, I ran vinegar thru it a couple days
