SOURCE: not enough hot water after someone showers there

There are several possible reasons for this problem. Not knowing your variables as such, I will go thru a couple of the most common reasons.
Most likely, your water heater is older and has lost its efficiency due to lime build up in the tank that settles out of the water that is stored in it. This covers the bottom of the tank where the burner is if it is gas and prevents a good thermal conductivity to the water. As you shower the heater does not recover fast enough to replace the hot water used. The same effect will happen with an electric water heater when the lime build up covers the electric coils that heat the water.
You can try to drain down the tank with the spigot at the bottom of the tank to get some of the lime out, but usually if you do that at this point, it will not remedy the situation enough to make a big difference. If this is the problem, a new water heater will be the way to go.
You can also check the setting on the thermostat and see if it is set too low. 190 F is about the normal setting. If you go much higher, you risk scalding. If your heater is new, it may be set a little low, but not usually so. You can nudge it up for temporary fix for the above lime problem, however you are only prolonging the inevitable of replacing the water heater.
Unless this is a new installation, it is most likely lime build up.
If you have an electric water heater, you may also have one of the two heating elements gone bad. There is one at the top of the tank, and one at the bottom. If they are not both good, the tank will not recover fast enough when you are using it.

We have a one year old home with PEX pipe and one year old hot water heater fed by a water softener. In one of the bathroom sinks, and only there it seems, there is a sulfur smell when we first open the...


i would check the softener before the water heater, when was the last time you did a back flush of the system? water sitting at the bottom of a water softener tank can get moldy and begin to rot, which causes H2S gas which smells like sulfur , its a breakdown of decay,, this will also happen if your home is using well water,, so check that first , empty the tank and clean it our ,, then back flush the system

Smelly black discharge from hot water every so often seems like a chemical reaction with well water and what heats the water in the tank. When turn off power and let the hot water sit for awhile there is...


Turn off water heater and flush it out. Hook hose up to hose bib on water heater.Close valve on hot water side.Run hose outside or into a drain.Open valve where you hooked up hose and let run 20 to 30 minutes to clear out tank.I would recommend putting a filtering system on the line going into the tank.This should clear up the problem.If not you have to have the anode rod replaced,depending on the age of the water heater.If you want to learn more about the anode rod,google anode rod ,it will bring you up to a site that will explain to you what it is. You will have to go to a plumbing supply store to find one.

Water heater heats water, but not long enough or sometimes not hot enough. The hot water runs out too fast, does not provide hot water continually


The first thing I would do is turn up temp control on gas valve.Control is located on front of gas valve at the bottom front of heater.They usually have a indicator dial on front with an arrow pointing direction.Turn dial to higher setting when burner is not on and this should turn burner on and provide hotter water. The control is normally turned clockwise to increase temperature.If control is already turned all the way up then water heater may need to be replaced.Depending on water quality in your area heater may have a large amount of mineral build up and it may not be capable of producing enough or hot enough water. If this the case all I can suggest is to try to drain tank and flush some of the deposits out. If you have installation manual it will give you instructions on how to do this. If not see if you have working shut off valve on cold water line ,if it works shut it off and connect drain hose to drain valve on bottom right side of gas valve. Put hose to floor drain or sump basin if you have one. Turn control knob on top of gas valve from on to pilot,this will leave pilot light on but prevent burner from working while draining. Open drain valve ,flow rate may be slow or not at all. Open hot water side of some faucet to provide air to help draining. You may try opening water supply valve to heater a few times to aid in draining. If you can get it to drain,shut drain valve off when done,turn cold water supply back on and shut off hot water outlet. Then when tank is full open hot water vavle to bleed air out of heater and piping. Turn control knob on top of gas valve back to on position. This should bring burner back on .It will take about 1/2 hour to heat. If you can't get it to drain or this doesn't help you might consider getting a new 40 gallon heater. Hope this helps. Thanks

Rheem hot water heater problem


If by the hot water over flow valve you are refering to the T&P valve. It is activated by high temp. or high pressure. It is possible that when you flushed the lines it caused this to open. It is also common for these once open to get a little debris in them and cause them to continue to leak. Sometimes you can open and close them a few times and get them to reseal. Other times you have to replace them. Hope this helps.

Code 11 01 - Hot Water Heater Kicks Off


if you have build up in the heat exchanger it will cause the unit to use more gas to heat your water, if the gas line isn't sized properly then your going to kick the error codes off. it sounds like you have two problems, first you have build up in your heat exchanger and it needs to be flushed and second you need to get a bigger gas line to it
