Does anyone know the average ground water temperature in the CLT Area? I did a quick search on google that yielded no results. I'm thinking about getting a tankless water heater and I would just like to do my research before going further and talking to a plumber about it.

If it matters, this would be in uptown but I would assume water temps across the region would be close to the same.

It depends on depth to water and seasons, but in general, groundwater in Charlotte ranges from ~60-70 degrees F, with higher or lower temps. during extreme seasonal fluctuations.

If the poster is uptown, this would mean the municipal system. Is it more constant than 'true' ground water or are the fluctuations the same?

I would suspect a far more constant temperature, especially since the water doesn't come directly from the source.

After doing some more research, it appears that 60-70 degrees is the average.

As far as AQUASTAR goes, I'll need an electric, not gas. Thanks though.
