    I was all set to try out my on demand hot water set up today. Well it would not trip my flow switch, I did not take into account a flow rate on a single faucet. The flow switch I have starts at 5.8 gpm I have it set up to fit in a 1 inch pipe. Anyone have one in your systems that work well?

    They make low flow switches that are used for on demand water heaters, and boilers that have plate HX for on demand DHW. Down to .5 gpm flow.

    Thanks, I took the info you gave me in another post and checked their usa site. I found nothing so I sent them a e mail with the part number from your post.
