Greenstar 30cdi hot water issue


The problem is not the water heater. The shower has a mixer or a limiter built into the plumbing so that the water wont get hot. It is a safety feature to prevent burns and protect children from scalding.

Is the hot water heater on & working? Is the dial that controls the heat itself turned up? Is there a connection problem to the electric or gas feed?

Good afternoon, We have a 25yr old delta shower faucet and head. both work wonderful but the water is not all that hot- our new hotwater tank is set at 130 degrees. If i need to change the mix do i do it...


You don't change the setting on the faucet or behind the shower wall. You change the mix in the hot water heater itself. New hot water heaters are set at a relatively lower hot-water-setting for liability purposes. To achieve a hotter mix, take the cover plate off the hot water heater. You will see a dial setting that allows you to turn up the heat. Depending on what type of water heater you have, there might be two cover plates (lower and upper). If so, you'll need to adjust both of these.

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.

Shower goes boiling hot then freezing


does this happen with any other fixture in your house that almost sounds like an element in a hot water heater.

or remove handle and look for an adjustment dial to temper water and adjust it

Dial not working correctly, set on low numbers water comes out at high pressure, set it on high numbers and the water pressure comes out on low pressure ???? why.... the item in question is a Triton Madrid...


It sounds like the numbers are for the temperature indication and the higher the temperature the more slowly the water runs because it takes longer to heat it.
