Question about Beretta Water Heaters
We are leaving our apartment for the winter and I need to find out what setting to leave our water heater on. The water heater heats our water as well as provides heating for the apartment (radiant floor water heating). Do we turn the heater off? Do we simply lower the set temperature to something low (5 degrees or so). Do we turn off the water supply to the apartment? The water heater is located outside of the apartment in a room that is not insulated (temperature there could drop below zero). If we shut off the water to the apartment will that affect the water heater if we leave it on (set for 5 degrees or so)?... Meaning, does the water heater need continuous water supply to run the heating or is it a "closed" system? Any insight into this issue would help. Thank you.

If you leave the heating on low to stop freezing is fine . Not sure how you water works but I would leave it on to stop freezing Also get some one to pop in once a week to check things are ok .

could be a pin hole leak some where on the tank and the insulation is absorbing it for now if it is older then 6 years and u havent replaced the anode rod or flushed the tank once a year you should probibly look to replace it

You just need a new pop off valve $10-$15 dollars. Unscrew the old one on top of the heater, put some teflon tape on the new one and screw it in place. Being that the house is for sale I would probably have a licensed plumber do it just to protect my self from any liability. Also most state codes require that pipe to terminate in a floor drain, most home inspectors will catch that. If it doesn't I would have him do that also.
Hope this helps-please rate

I think some one mis informed you, the normal temp on any water heater from the factory is 120, it should not go above that for reasons of sevear burns, as far as it't smart part it's just a name, you will lose a couple of degrees just comming torm the tank to the faucets, the water heater will allways keep the temp in the tank at what ever it is set at, it doesn't have the brains or computer to know what time of day it is but when the cold water comes in to the tank it comes thru a dip tube that goes to aprox 1 inch from the bottom of the tank, if you take a long shower and do not have a energy efficant shower head you can use up to 5 gals, per min of hot water where an energy efficant one only uses 2.5 or less and still has the same pressure at the shower head, the temp in your water heater tries to stay at the setting it is at depending on how much is used at one time meaning washing machine, filling tub or dishwasher at the same time, it lets more cold in as the hot goes out and as you know it can only heat up so much at a time and the cold water is just going across the bottom of the tank, so the name is just that no diffrent then any other water heater unless you went to a tankless water heater.

it could be the fact thath the water comming in is what the problem is,, on a well system the water is extra cold and the unit is working hard and with sand aso comming in it makes it harder to keep the temp up on the water,,, flush the tank, put hose on it and open the drin valve with a hose on it turn the cold water on and let it flow till the water comes out clear usually about 5 min,,, get all the sand out and other debris and try it

SOURCE: warm water only
You can eliminate the shower control knob possibility by turning on your hot water anywhere else in the house. If you get hot water in other places, then it could be the knob causing it. A substantial lime buildup in the tank can also cause poor heat transfer from the elements to the water.
