And another followup

It seems one of the two meters is busted. Perhaps the float string got tangled up, or something like that.

Followup

Thanks for the reply, Ferd.

I've settled on this Bosch because we're getting a solar hot water installed at the same time, and it is one of the few units that asserts it is compatible with pre-heated water. I has a high flow...

How do I get it home?

I need to transport a few sheets of sheetrock. I've got a station wagon with a roof rack. Is there any way I can load sheetrock on the roof rack, or should I just pay the delivery fee?

Thanks...
