      I am replacing a 40 gallon tank heater with a tankless unit and would like to know what size unit to put in with the maximum simultaneous use being one shower and washer. I live in virginia. Is there a big fluctuation in temperature when someone suddenly opens a faucet for example?

      The specifications for EEMAX are at:

      A constant flow rate for the shower depends upon your existing piping. If you have varying flow in the shower now, you will when you make the change, so a larger feed to the shower and a pressure/temperature balancing shower device would help control the output.

      Unless you are also installing a much larger power line, the size you can install will be limited by the electric wire available. Which in most cases will be fairly small and unsatisfactory.
