Interesting Problem: Water Heater Distance

Making the following assumptions, how far away is the water heater location?

  • The bathroom is plumbed with 1/2 CPVC pipe.
  • When the faucet is turned on, and calling for hot water only, it takes 11 seconds to feel the first hint of warm water.
  • The house water pressure is set to 80 psi.

So, how far away is the water heater? Explain your answer rationale, please, in the comments.
