If a bunch of us will be showering, I will turn on the gas heater in addition to the electric. It seems to keep up better when both heaters are running, but we do still need to take start & stop showers.
OK I just have exagerated expectations for a 5 gallon hot water tank. Do they make larger hot water tanks? I would gladly sacrifice closet space for a larger tank. Looks like it would be an easy instal. Any one have any experience with this proposed project?
I'm not going to say I'm familiar with a Mini Lite but I'd say that your space may be limited and you also may need to think about the weight of a bigger tank. Fill up a 5 gallon bucket with water and then fill up another. That's at least another 40 lbs.
Taking a trip to the shower house for a longer shower might need to be thought about.
They do make a larger size tank but you would have to make the hole larger for it to fit. The also make a on demand water heater that is the same size as the 6 gal. Do not know how well the on demand will work. Have heard bad reviews.
