How do I adjust water temperature after valve has been installed


Don,

there be should be a knob (typically red in color) on the front of your water heater, with temperature degrees listed. The knob should also delineate a typical range of settings for domestic use, which range from 120 degrees to 160 degrees. While a hotter setting will allow an increased amount of warm water, for example for longer shower duration, these temperatures can present a risk of scalding and require more energy to maintain the selected temperature.

Tip

Electric Hot Water Heater Temperature Adjustment


If your electric hot water heater is not getting your water hot enough or your water is too hot then you can make the adjustment easily yourself. There are a few things that you may need to know to do this. I will go over where the thermostat(s) are located and also how to make the changes.

The first thing to remember is to make sure that the power is turned off to the hot water heater before you attempt to open any of the covers and make any adjustments.

The next thing is to locate the covers which are over the thermostats and the elements. There are two on most hot water heaters, one for the top and one for the bottom. One or two screws hold these covers in place. They will look like this when you look at the front of the hot water heater.

When you have the cover removed you will see that the top thermostat, reset safety control and the element look like this.

The bottom thermostat and element look like this.

If you need to reset the hot water heater you push the red button on the top thermostat in hard till it clicks. To change the temperature setting on the thermostat you need to take a screw driver and turn the dial to the desired temperature either higher or lower as you prefer.

The elements can also be checked by using and ohm meter and checking for resistance across the two terminals of the element. If you get no resistance or a high resistance the element is no good. A normal reading with most meters will be somewhere in the 8-25 ohm range. This even gives a bit of buffer for different meters and the possibility of them being a bit out of calibration.

For most people a simple adjustment of the temperature settings will be sufficient to give you the results you want. Remember that you may need to adjust the thermostat for both elements to get the desired result. Also remember that you can get a longer time before you run out of hot water if the water is hoter and you mix more cold into it. The downside of that is the chances for scalding are greatly increased with hotter water. If you have small children or elderly adults, think carefully about what very hot water can do to them.

For higher efficiency you also want to keep the water temperatures as low as possible to reduce the residual heat loss of the stored hot water.

Hatco booster blowing breakers


Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-is-blowing-breaker.html

Hatco booster heater typically has 2 sets of thermostats and elements located on each end of heater.
Both sides might be controlled by same 60 amp breaker, or the heater might be controlled by two separate 30 amp breakers.
Be sure you have correct wire and breaker.

After reading steps on link above, add comment and say if this is new installation, or older installation that suddenly started throwing breaker.

How do i install a pressure tank to my water heater?


Do you mean expansion tank? To relieve pressure?
Expansion tank goes on cold water line before cold enters tank.
See image:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/water-heater-expansion-tank.jpg

Expansion tanks are installed when TP valve is constantly drizzling hot water due to very hot temperature settings. Or when water pressure is high, etc
It's also smart to install expansion tank so plumbing lasts longer, and older tank is less likely to rupture and cause damage. Inspect tank for leaks each 6 months.
Some regions require expansion tank by local code.
Water heater can be damaged when pressure exceeds 80psi. : Test pressure using pressure gauge at water heater drain valve.

I have the Reliance 606 and my water has been extremely hot - do I need to change both of the heating elements in it


Are you aware of how to adjust thermostat(s) on water heater? Be sure to shut off power (circuit breaker(s) to water heater prior. Should be behind covers on tank. Both should have screw in center to allow you to back down temperature. Should have an arrow indicating current temperature setting, simply move it slightly toward lower temperature (usually counterclockwise, but just double check ) and try it, until desired temperature is reached.

We just had a Ariston GL 4Ti water heater installed. The water is just not very hot. Does this unit have a temp adjuster on it? If not can you reset the water heater? The way it was installed I cannot...


After installation check the water temperature. If adjustment is necessary, remove front

cover to adjust thermostat under cover. Clockwise to increase the temperature and

counter clockwise to decrease it.


To reach the thermostat:

1. Pry off the round cover plate from its right hand edge with

a small flat-head screwdriver.
2. Remove the Phillips screw revealed beneath the round cover plate

3. The cover can now be removed by pulling out its left-hand edge.

When reassembling, work in the opposite way being careful to insert the tongue
of the cover into the slot.

I have an intermittant discharge from the overflow valve. The valve can be operated manually however every now & then there is water coming from the system.


you need to change the t&p valve (temperature and pressure) most of the time this will solve the problem.

have you checked the water pressure?
have you checked the temperature of the water?

more than likely it is just the valve, these are common and can be picked up in any hardware store. be sure to check yours. there are 2 different models, one for a regular water heater, and one for a water heater with 2 inch foam. this one has a little longer stem, but will also work with the regular heater.

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet


Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

With the hatco booster water for automatic dish machine


Under normal and regular operation Hatco recommends that the unit be turned on at all times.
If the booster heater will not be used for an extended period of time or will be exposed to freezing conditions it should be drained to prevent damage to the unit.
