I have a system with a 300 liters of water consumption per day, and I want to heat 80 L/day of that water. But I want to use a percent of water of my well. Can I model that? And were can I insert a pump to pull that water?

You'll need to write a measure in order to do this in OpenStudio.

WaterUse:Well captures the well pump and is on-site water. See here. You can create a new WaterUse:Connections object that can be sourced from the well object.
