Thats a good point. I think most hydronic heating systems are pressurized at a lower pressure than domestic water. This helps reduce the amount of power needed to move the water. Still, it will need a decent heat exchanger to pull heat out of the tank all day long. But you're right, I shouldn't have to deal with super high flow rates as long as the DHW is seperated.

The DHW will be on a seperate loop at a higher pressure and would probably be just fine with the 300' of 1" pex.
