Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters

I had a shower total replacement less than two years ago. Company out of business now. Shower grout has cracked bad at base and in corner all the way down. I need to re-grout. Problem is the gap in corner is deep and filling it grout does not seem what I should do. What should I fill the gap with?

Try using a small amount of thin set, Troll it in and be sure to leave a small gap. Let it dry and then use a high quality silicon caulk. Be sure to let that dry for at least 48 hours.

Good luck,

Marty

SOURCE: shower gets hotter or colder when toilet is flushed.

The problem you have is so common. It is caused by the fact that all of the water lines in the house are the same size, usually 1/2" copper tubing. The only way to eliminate this problem is to use 3/4" tubing as the main lines and branch off with 1/2" near each faucet. Not an inexpensive fix. In the short run tell everyone not to flush the toilet when the shower is in use.

SOURCE: The hot water shuts off during a shower. All the

One of the problems with these has been that you must be using at least 1/2 gallon per minute for the burners to ignite. In the summer when the incoming water is already warm, we tend to not use enough hot water to keep it lit. Try turning on the hot water faucet in the sink and 'wasting' some hot water during the shower. If that fixes the problem you can find some other adjustments on the Aquastar website to help lower the temp some.

I have a Potterton Combi Puma 80e When I use the shower the pressure seems to drop and shower goes cold! except when the central heating is on shower works fine


Does the red status led in the centre of the control board come on when hot water is drawn? You need to remove ONLY the front decorative cover to see the control board, two fixing screws at the base of it. If not the boiler won't fire when the CH is off.
The trigger for this is a pressure switch, replacement of which is beyond DIY scope.

I have a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater that will turn to cold water 10-15 minutes into a shower. The explanation has been that the water pressure on the hot water has to be so many Gallons per minute, but...


Bad PC board.
Bad sensor.
Don't buy a tankless because the problems can be endless.

Before blaming the tankless however.
Perform the yearly required maintenance on burner
Delime the unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Descaling-heat-exchanger.pdf

Remove and clean aerators, replace low-flow shower heads with large water-wasting shower heads.

IMPORTANT check all your single-handle faucets for crossover.
Water getting cool after 15 minutes could be bad cartridge on another faucet.

If you have single-handled faucet the faucet cartridge might be bad.
If you have recirculation system, then check valve might be bad.

In shower water is very hot cant get the cold to work


If water pressure is low on hot side, then there is sediment or clog in pipe or water heater.

If pressure is good, and shower is single-handle, then shower cartridge is bad.

I have a Rheem Model # 62SV-520 and I loose hot water after about 10 minutes in the shower. I think one of the heating elements is bad, but if so, which one.


There performance depends on your demand. If you are using an energy saving shower head I would expect you to have enough hot water for easily a couple of showers. But, if your using the "power flush" type shower heads that use 3.5 gpm or more, the 40 gallon heater is not enough. Also, consider type of water your heating. Is it well water or municipal. Unsoftened well (this includes some municipal well supplies too) water causes hardness ions to cake the heater element making them less efficient. If you have the low flow shower, it is likely you have an element burt out. They can simply be replaced and picked up at any big box store for less than $20 dollars. Each element can be tested in place with a continuity tester. If your not sure how to test, but would be willing to replace the elements - replace both of them. You will have to shut off power to heater and drain tank completely before removing elements. Replace elements with same wattage or higher. Most have two 2250 watt elements for a total of 4500 watts. you can easily install two 3000 watt elements and have a quicker recovery rate and more hot water than ever.

Flow of water thru shower head is barely a trickle


There is a chance there is mineral deposits in the showerhead openings. You can try products sucha as limeaway by unscrewing the showerhead , soaking in the limeaway for a few minutes and rinsing with water. You may have to repeat this a few times to get it clean.

Does it happen to any other fixture? If not, it's most likely your shower valve and not heater.
