you could be correct. i think at 2 gpm you will deplete the hot water in 20 minutes or less.
with a mixed ration of 50/50

these figures i pulled out of the air. they are assumptions

see if you can find a formula, would be nice to have/know

I'm not overly concerned about the amount of water usage at this point. The house is almost 10 years old so a new hot water heater is probably on the horizon. I'm trying to do things one at a time so I don't get overwhelmed.

So am I right in assuming these numbers work for this shower head?
