Question about Rheem 22V50FN 50 Gallon Ultra Low Nox Water Heater Natural Gas
I'd like to have an owners manual so i can understand the temperature settings. I found one manual online, but the picture of the temperature settings wasn't the same one on our heater. Thanks
Easiest way to do this is to set the water heater in the mid range and wait for it to heat and settle down, then take the temperature of the water from the drain valve. See if it is too hot or cold. Raise or lower it a little at a time and wait for it to settle. Check it again.

SOURCE: Water temperature
if it is electric remove the metal plate that is about 1/3 from the top usually colored blue or whitethere is pull dome of the insulation out fof the way you will see red and blue wires going into the element and a plastic cover underneath the cover is a setting with an indicator it is usually adjustable with a thin flat head crew driver the indicator has high medium and low temp setting
Just turn indicator to temp desired

You are correct, the pipes have been used and they retain the warmer temp and thus they don't cool the water by the time it gets to the faucet.

try setting the bottom 10 degrees hoter than the top could be in short cycle (thatis the bottom calls for heat on the bottom element and set too close so goes back to top and cycles off

What is a shower? Get in - get wet - get soapy - get rinsed - get out? Or do you take 30 minute showers? Are these showers going on at the same time? ... Your water heater is suppose to put out a certain amount of hot water per hour. If you exceed this amount, well, there is no hot water. Setting a higher temperature will not help it recover faster. Your heater is either heating water or not heating water. Said differently, the temp setting is not a gas petal - it is a ON or OFF condition - not MORE on or MORE off condition.
Have you drained the sediment from the bottom of the tank recently? Depending upon conditions, you should get the junk out of the bottom (by running water out until it is clean, from the faucet at the bottom of the tank) at about 6 month intervals.
Im sorry you are having trouble with this.

Testimonial: "Very helpful answer. Thanks for the request for additional information and for the cleaning suggestion! "
Here is the link to a manual:
Be sure to have your circuit breaker off before you remove the cover.
220V and water together is not a good mix.
