Indirect Water Heater - tank size

chois2September 17, 2012

Hi all,

First time poster here. Lot's of GREAT information I've found so far.

Doing a New Construction with a Builder and need some advise on the indirect water heater i've requested.

Builder recommends 60Gal tank for a family of 3 with frequent visitors. Since it is gas boiler fired, would the 60 gal tank be large enough for those days when we have 3 showers going for 10-15 min each with maybe a dishwasher and laundry machine? (Just trying to think of the worst case scenario)

Your thoughts would be appreciated!
