My water is heated thru a coil in the steam boiler, and is adequate except for the tub faucet. The water quickly outruns the tankless supply, How can I restrict the gpm through the tub supply? Is there a restrictor for the tub faucet like there is in a shower head assembly? Also, just how hot should that aquastat in the tankless be set at?

After your coil, you should have a mixing valve that you can adjust. 120 degrees is recommended to prevent scalding.

there is supposed to be a restrictor built into the supply side of the unit....this again is "case in point" against this type of unit. the tub valve draws the most volume of water and the mini-boiler cannot keep up with the demand....very, very common complaint. erik
