As part of a renovation of his four-story house in San Francisco, John Metcalfe has added a pair of tankless hot water heaters. But instead of delivering lots of hot water quickly, the revamped plumbing system means a two-minute wait for hot water at the shower or in the kitchen.

This is some geeky stuffy...Enjoy! -Matt Risinger
