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

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.
