Question about Water Water Heaters

Open Question

Why doesn't me Reverse Osmosis sanitize cycle seem to be working?

Tried to run the sanitize cycle, emptied the tanks, installed sanitize canisters, turned the water back on, let sit for 10 mins., turned faucet on, water runs for 2-5 min. then stops. Both drain lines are clear. Removed tanks, emptied and re-pressurized. Same problem.

THE WATER IS RECIRCULATING IN THE UNIT. MAYBE CAUSED BY THE ACID. TRY INSTALLING A BACK FLOW PREVENTER

SOURCE: Water is either hot or cold - no in between.

I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.

So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?

SOURCE: Noritz tankless water heater/dishwasher not hot enough to clean

You are doing everything you can. Your dishwasher probably isn't drawing enough hot water to activate the unit so opening the faucet and flowing more water will activate the unit. Just try to adjust the flow from the faucet to a point it, plus the draw from the dishwasher, will activate the unit. This will come with trial and error as I am sure you have already experienced. Also, open the dishwasher when it does get filled and check the water temperature. You might have the unit set at a low discharge temperature. Do you have a touchpad to control the water temperature adjustment?

SOURCE: tankless water heater: cold sandwich effect. While

tankless water heaters are a great appliance with one small draw back they require a constant flow of water through them to maintain production of hot water if the water presure fluctuates they can cut out momentarily or if your water supply is less than great ie hard ,high iron,
sulpher ect.. then the heat exchanger can become plugged over time like say 5 years. Contamination of the flow sensor/presure switch could also be a culprit depending on how handy you are a through cleaning with a good kettle descaler will probably help.
Good Luck

Tankless water heater doesn't produce hot water in the winter when tempetures are below 32 degrees. I tried a water saver shower head and this worked for a little while. Anything else I can do ?


1) Tempering tank might help:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tempering-tank.html

2) Reduce temperature setting on tankless unit so there is less differential between incoming cold water and thermostat set point.

3) Absolutely any tankless problem can be solved same day by installing tank-type gas water heater:

4) Add comment and say what you do to solve problem.

Water filter drain running all the time


Is this a new system? The should be a small restriction in the drain line. The size of the restriction is matched to the gallon per minutes of the R.O. system. Yours could be missing or not the right size, ie not enough restriction.

I have a GE smartwater reverse osmosis system model number GXRM10GBL02. Water leaks daily from the small hole on the faucet on my counter top. Any idea why water comes out that small hole? Otherwise the...


That is the drain for the reverse osmosis system. You have what is referred to as an AIR GAP faucet. The waste water is pushed up there before it goes to drain just as the drain for a dishwasher does. If water is coming out of the faucet the drain is most likely plugged or the line is kinked causing water to back up and overflow. Check the drain line for kinks and clean out the drain where it attaches to the stand pipe.

Sink tap has overflow going directly into the drain and constantly running. This is a reverse osmosis system that is outside warranty.


If you mean the little weep hole on the tap is leaking? If so, then the drain line connected to the sink drain is clogged. Remove this line and see if it's draining free.(have bucket ready) Most likely it will be where it enters your sink drain at that fitting, clogged with sink drain materials.

The water is not clear any more we have white residue in the kettle. We did change the filter and emptied the tank 3 times before insulting the new filters.


I don't believe that any filtration system is capable of removing dissolved calcium from water and that is what causes the white deposits. Water softeners will, but I don't like the idea of dissolved salts in our tap water.

Heating element cycling on and off fairly often


Yes, unfortunelty elextric water heaters do cycle a lot. They are a little bit different from gas water heaters, in the fact that they run differently and seem to run out of hot water faster, then gas water heaters. Just make sure, that the thermostat is set at 120 F. The thermostat will be behind a panel, and under the electrical wire connections. You will have to use a flathead screw driver, to change the temp. settings, if they need changing. Also, make sure that once a year, that you flip the Pressure relief valve to equalize the pressure and to drain at least 2 gallons of water out of the tank.
