Weil McClean 56 Gallon ID to replace 80 gallon????

I am being told by the dealer that my 80 gallon buffer insulated tank run off my boiler coil will easily be able to be replaced by a 56 gallon WM true indirect. I have a 90 gallon jacuzzi and have 4 people in the house and I am not worried about simultaneous use of the tub and other items, but definitely need to be able to fill it with hot water.

Does this seem typical or possible, I just dont want to be disappointed later but dont want to overkill the application either.

Thank yuo

    WM stainless steel indirect water heaters are made by Triangle Tube.

    What WM used to call a 80 gallon model was really a Triangle Tube Smart 60 and WM 60 was a TT smart 50.

    Go to both WM and triangle tube web sites to compare apples to apples.
