Some household info.
- 4 people (wife, 2 younger daughters, and myself)
- Variable speed well pump keeps me around ~12 gallons per minute flow give or take regardless of outlets opened
- An 80 gal soaker tub - not used much
- Master shower is rain head with secondary sprayer
- Well is 420ft
Been using Gary's calc - http://www.qualitywaterassociates.com/sizing.php
I come up with 1.5-2 cube - 1.5 is staying with 60 gallons, bumping it to 65 person/day hits 2 cube.
I was going to go 2 cube - and move up to 7000 vs 5600 valve as I would be bumping 5600 limits with 2 cubes.
