comment What is a “wet edge” and how do I maintain one?
Ok, I'll modify my comment: Wet on dry = potential bad. It may leave a stripe where you overlap the finish.

I thought it was so you're not putting poly (or paint, etc.) over PARTIALLY dry poly, thus causing the partially dry material to peel up or otherwise disturb the finish. Wet on wet = good. Wet on dry = good. Wet on partially dry = bad.

I would suggest not running the water into the utility sink. The sediment/scale could clog your drain.

comment Should I install an inline water heater for my bathroom?
@Matt, you would have to size the heater for the volume you require (gallons per minute @ a certain temperature rise). The output water temperature at my sink varies seasonally. In winter, the water coming into the heater is colder than summer. The heater raises the temperature by X degrees (it does not heat it to X degrees).

I added a small on-demand water heater under my sink. It required 8 or 10 gauge wire. The heater worked well with one major drawback. After closing the faucet, the heater would shut off, but the heater element was still hot. Wait several seconds, turn the water on and it is VERY hot for a few seconds.

To supply the volume of water required for a tub and shower would require lots of current for an electric heater. It's possible that your current breaker box would not have the capacity for that extra demand.
