It needs 1.5 GPM and the faucet is less than that.

Speaking of which, is water pressure concurrent with GPM flow rate? In other words does increasing the pressure increase your GPM?
Ah electric tankless that explains a lot...

Yes, if you increase pressure, you will increase water flow. It's not identical though. It may take a lot of pressure to make much of a difference in flow.
