When selecting a hot water system, whether solar or electric, there are a number of factors that need to be allowed for:

  • How many baths/showers/hot water taps are there?
  • Does the dishwasher or washing machine use hot water?
  • How many people live in the house?
  • What are their ages and sex? (as a general rule, teenagers shower longer than others and females shower longer than males)
  • Do you need to allow for regular or frequent visitors?
  • How cold is the area you live in?

Max Fox Electrical can help you select a hot water system capable of handling your household or commercial hot water needs. The table below can give you a rough indication of the amount of water to allow for.

SE: Single Element

TE: Twin Element

As a general guide, the average showerhead uses between 12 and 15 litres of hot water per minute and an average person showers between 10 and 15 minutes, longer during winter.

Our helpful sales team can assist you in selecting a suitable electric hot water system for your home.
