Does anyone know the average ground water temperature in the Hillsborough/Somerville, NJ area? I've searched online and yielded no results. I'm thinking about getting a tankless water heater to replace our 40 gallon tank.

Shouldn't average ground water temperature be the average temperature of the ground as in a constant 58 degrees or so? Any drinking water form a well is going to be coming from at least 100+ feet down so I would think that the temperature at those depths is pretty constant.

*edit*

Oops-I read too much into the question. Try this link:

It seems New Jersey's average temp is more like 47 degrees.

turn your cold water on and let it run for about 5 min, then hold a meat thermometer (or other such waterproof thermometer) under the stream.

What meat thermometer has readings marked in the 50-60 degree range ? If your cooking meat and the thermometer reads 50 degrees you need a new oven !!!
