Greetings cad9Woody,

ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers typically use one- third less water than non-qualified models. The average ENERGY STAR qualified model uses about 4 gallons of water per cycle while the non qualified model uses about 6 gallons of water per cycle. You can also save water by prescraping your dishes.

As far as the size of water heater you need, that would depend on your family size and a variety of variables, such as how often you wash clothes, dishes, and shower.

Commercial dishwasher needs a repair. The water heater booster rusted out, leaks and needs to be replaced with a new unit. Need a repair company that works with the State.


You can order a new booster heater.... I would just need the size of the booster heater itself in order to price you one.... What state are you talking about? Susan Restaurant Equipment Outlet 888-542-5959

I have a quote from a contractor to install a Rinnai R75 tankless water heater. The heater normally requires 3/4 piping. My home has 1/2" piping. The contractor says 3/4" is better but 1/2"...


There are advantages and disadvantages to both pipe sizes. Typically, most houses utilize 3/4 inch or larger to supply high volume circuits like the circuit from the meter (or well) to the hot water heater, outside spigot, or water softener. Distribution from water heaters is usually 3/4 for the main branch but this is reduced for the runs to the sink, dishwasher, washing maching. The reason for reducing the size is to reduce the volume of water in the tube or to reduce the amount of cold water you run down the drain before it turns hot.
Since your house seems to have 1/2 inch supply to the current water heater, I would suggest staying with the current size. The option is to enlarge the tubing from supply to distribution which can be a major plumbing task. If your current water pressure (at the faucet) is ok, then go with what you have.

I have beko dishwasher works fine but no hot water is it just the element which needs replacing or could it another problem MODEL DWD4310S


How far is your water heater from your dishwasher. I knew someone who had to get a circulating pump. His dishwasher was so far form the water heater so when the dishwasher would fill, it used the cold water that is sitting in the pipes and by the time the hot water got there, the dishwasher didn't need any more water. the pump will keep the water circulating back and forth to and from the hto water heater. Or you an get one of those electric small heaters that heat on the spot as well.

Size and installation for instant water heater


Ariston gl4.0 should be fine if used inline with your hot water heater. Used alone it will likely run out when dishwasher is filling and you are using sink.To use your existing hot water for backup: 1 connect existing HOT water line to cold (inlet) on ariston, 2 Then HOT (outlet) from ariston to sink and dw. If you want instant hot water at a sink 10 feet away: use 3/8 pex pipe from ariston to sink, so you only have to run off a cupful or 2 before hot water arrives at sink.

No problem, just looking for gal. per minute flow rate


It uses 1.2 gallons for each wash or rinse action in a cycle.  The water only runs until the 1.2 gallons amount is reached and then that water recycles through the pump for the duration of the action.  Start the dishwasher and time how long it takes until the water stops filling (not the entire time of the action).  Divide 1.2 by the number of minutes including seconds as a decimal fraction (i.e. 1 minute and 30 seconds = 1.5 minutes) to get the flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).

Hobart lx 18 warewasher what hatco booster heater product compatable with it


The answer to this question will be based on the incoming water temperature that is supplied to the booster heater. The standard sizing for a booster heater is based off of a 40 degree F rise (140 degree F incoming water temperature) or a 70 degree F rise (110 degree F incoming water temperature). For a 40 degree F rise, a Hatco model C-5, S-5, or PMG-60 will supply the needed amount of rinse water for the LX-18 Hobart dishwasher. A 70 degree F rise would require a Hatco model C-9, S-9, or PMG-60 to supply the same Hobart model number.
