SOURCE: Hot Water Overflow

Do you have an expansion tank tank  in the line leading into water heater? If not what is happening is that the water is no longer allowed to go back into the city supply.  You said that you had turned it off while you left so the water heats up and has no place to go so the preasure/ temperature P/T valve  opens and lets out the excess water from the expanded supply (heater water) that has no where else to go. It used to be that the extra expanded water just backed up into the supply pipe and back into the main. That is no longer possible in most places by the  National Plumbing code.    The answer may be to install the expansion tank into the incoming line. You can see then now at  all hardware stores where water heaters are sold.

If the water heater is working fine than I would not worry about the function of the water heater. What the problem may be is that some of your WATER LINES HAVE MOVED, AS THEY WERE NOT SECURED PROPERLY. The sound you may have heard was the Copper or PVC(Plastic) lines just getting back comfortable. I Suggest checking that your water lines are secured about every 3 or 4 feet with the proper ancjhor....Metal for metal pipe, copper for copper pipe, etc. Sometime as in my house, pipes are run through a hole drilled through a stud or a piece of wood, usually when hot water is run through this pipe. You can here an expansion of the water line interacting with the pipe expanding, if the hole in the wood was not drilled big enough......Experience of remodeling a very old house.......Joe

Our hot water has been getting much more hot than usual - we don't run out of hot water, and the hot doesn't fluctuate between really hot and then cool. We had it set to a lower temp (~125F), so can...


The first thing I would do is to turn the thermostat up and down several times,wait a few mins. and do it again. Then run hot water until element comes on. Let it run for a few mins and then turn it back to lowest setting.
I never really came up with a good reason why this works some times but I always tried to save money for my customers and quite often I was 30 or more miles to supply house and it was a cheap fix.
I think you probably will end up replaceing thermostat like your thinking so good luck. Thank you.

How do I turn up the temp on my Rheemglas fury 82V80-2?


You have 2 thermostats inside of those covers, little things with a dial on them, turn them with a small screwdriver, Don't go too hot or you will be scalding everybody. Hope this helps.

We have a Rheemglas Standard Electric Water Heater 81V400 B and it's leaking water from the tank and also the hot water only lasts for a short period of time. I've been reading and have read that the water...


if your water heater is leaking from the tank, and not around any fitting, then you will need to replace the heater.
you can flush the heater, once a year is always recommended, however once every 2 years is sufficient.

scale, and deposites inside the tank will cause erosion and eventually eat through the walls of the tank. not much you can do to prevent this. the steel in the new tanks just don't last like they ued to.

Brown discoloration is evidence of a rusting or corroded steel pipe somewhere in you plumbing system. Trace the water lines back from the faucet and replace all the steel pipe.
White discoloration is minerals that separate out when the water is heated.
You can change the Anode Rod and it should help. It is not an instant fix, the rod will take a week or two to do its job.
If your water heater is still under warranty, call Rheem, they may replace the water heater free.
