Flow rate is determined by temperature rise. To determine your temperature rise, subtract the incoming water temperature from the set output temperature. All units are factory set at 120°F to 122°F but can be changed. Flow rates are based on default set temperatures. In Canada, base incoming water temperature for coldest climate on 40°F.
