The last time we had overnight guests, scheduling showers for everyone was a logistics nightmare! A 50-gallon hot water tank worked fine for the four of us, but when my brother and his family stayed with us for the holidays, we more than doubled the demand for hot water from our 5-year-old tank. 

Rinnai tankless hot water tankWith so many family members living out of town, we had planned on — and looked forward to — having overnight guests during the holidays.  Our home was large enough to accommodate everyone. We had extra guest rooms and plenty of bathrooms. What we never seemed to have enough of was hot water.

We discovered that shortage the embarrassing way when my brother’s wife went to take a shower on an earlier visit. Hers was the third consecutive shower in an evening that had also pulled hot water from the tank for two loads of laundry and a dishwasher that was still running. As a result, my sister-in-law stepped into an icy cascade.

We’ve been staggering showers ever since.
