: : so a tank smaller than 80 would not be sufficient even with the mixing valve?
: +++ This is a "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin" question. You give a clue as to how much water is required by how many taps you expect to have open for how long - then somebody can answer - not with a guess.
sorry, i thought my original post (either two showers at the same time or one shower and one dishwasher or even draw a bath while a shower is being used) was the info that led you to the recommended the 80 gallon tank to begin with. if not, then i got lost along the way.
what is the original recommended 80 gallon tank based on?
in any case, the original info still is what i would like to accomplish and i thought that if 80 gallons were enough then a mixing valve might lower the tank capacity necessary to meet this demand. of course i suppose i should have a small amount of extra capacity built in just in case. lots of decisions here.... :)
i'm just not sure on the cost differential between buying some extra tank capacity, say between 60 gal and 80 gal, or keeping the tank smaller and buy a mixing valve to go with the 60. which is usually more cost effective with materials and installation together?
