Answer

Check out the Temperature Rise chart in the ops manual or the spec sheet. It looks like 75 degree rise will reduce the water flow to about 5 GPM. That should be enough for 2 faucets. Link to the spec sheet: https://media.rinnai.us/salsify_asset/s-5571a94f-3e5f-4396-82b8-75e250066be4/RUi-SP-1-N%20Series%20Condensing%20Residential%20Indoor%20Spec%20Sheet.pdf

Is it good enough for a house of: 5 people, 2 floors, 4000 sqft, 31/2 bath room?

Asked by david August 24, 2020

Answers

11 GPM max flow rate should produce hot water for up to seven different fixtures concurrently. But it depends on the set temperature, starting temperature of the incoming cold water, altitude, and water pressure. It is best to check the chart in the Operation Manual.

Installation was easy and the performance is great. The heater delivers hot water much faster than my old tankless hot water heater. Love the fact that Schedule 40 PVC can be used for venting. Dealing with condensation was a bit tricky because I do not have a drain nearby the heater, so I installed an automatic condensate removal pump (see picture) - it is also working great.

This is the model to get if you want maximum hot water flow capacity in a single unit at an efficient energy rate. Some pointers that may save you some time: You likely need to upgrade to at least a 3/4" gas line, you need 3/4" PVC fittings purchased separately to run the pressure relief valve drainage, 1/2" tubing or PVC for the condensate drain. If you intend to run a hot water recirculation line I would recommend against trying to link the pump via the "Circ-logic" connection to the water heater. Not only did this require me to purchase a separate connector cable but then I found out the pump marketed for this purpose would not work as designed unless you purchase even more accessories. I ended up scrapping the whole connection and simply have the pump controlled by a smart plug. The water heater works fantastic and the manual is fairly thorough, just a couple minor annoyances along the way.

Installed the RU180iN myself. I’m not a plumber, but I’m fairly capable having performed many home improvement projects over the years. Because I also replaced all the 70-year-old galvanized water pipes (with all new copper) and replaced all the old gas lines throughout my basement, this was a serious undertaking for me. I did it in stages, spread over four weekends. The installation manual is very well done...also a good amount of information online & YouTube. And I asked Bruce at HD a thousand questions. I love the tankless water heater. It’s been running about three weeks now...no complaints. 120 degrees is plenty hot and I find it to be pretty quite. Standing outside, it’s quieter than my next door neighbor’s power-vented tanked water heater.
