Selecting tankless hot water heaters isn't very difficult. Select one based on the maximum amount of hot water to meet your peak demand. Use the following assumptions on flow for various appliances to find the size of unit that is right for your purposes:
Low-flow showerheads: 1.2 gallons (4.54 liters) to 2 gallons (7.57 liters) per minute. Older standard shower heads: 2.5 gallons (9.46 liters) to 3.5 gallons (13.25 liters) per minute.
Clothes washers and dishwashers: 1 gallon (3.79 liters) to 2 gallons (7.57 liters) per minute.Unless you know otherwise, assume that the incoming temperature is 50 degrees F (10 degrees C). You will want your water heated to 120 degrees F (49 degrees C) for most uses, or 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for dishwashers without an internal heater. To determine how much of a temperature rise you need, subtract the incoming temperature from the desired output temperature. In this example, the needed rise is 70 degrees F (39 degrees C).

water pump. With it you get both water conservation and convenience
