The liters of gas water heater refers to the amount of hot water that can be produced per minute when the temperature difference between the set hot water temperature and the incoming cool water temperature is 25 degrees. It also refers to the ability of the machine to produce hot water per minute, so the more hot water outlet points, the greater the demand for liters. One kitchen and one bathroom, the recommended number of liters 12/13 liters. One kitchen and two bathrooms, the recommended number of liters 13/16 liters. One kitchen, multiple bathrooms, the recommended number of liters 16 liters. (Source: HKW Zingiber)
