Firstly what is the hot water flow capacity and at what temperature does the gas boiler supply it? Secondly will the boiler also be used to supply water to sinks too?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The Boiler is a ALPHA INTEC 40GS ERP LG COMBI BOILER and will also feed the sinks. I don't know any thing else, perhaps you could look up the specification?Thanks

I dont think that the boiler you have listed will be able to supply the instantaneous water quantity you require which will be about 15 gpm for the showers alone. Was it also your intent to to heat the washrooms too. If you can leave it until tomorrow I can get more exact information for you - Ian
