    Thanks for the advice. A small piece of broken plastic from the drain plug had jammed in the inlet tube just after the non return inlet valve. Coathanger to the rescue

Check the tank drain valve for water there.If you get a good water flow there you know the tank is getting water pressure.Check the first outlet downline from WH and if there is no water there you have a blockage or other problem.If you have to turn off water to tank, remove the outlet pipe ,and check for water flow from tank with in valve on.If no flow, tank is plugged up.
Hope this gets you going.

    You can try a stiff wire cut on the end to a sharp point down the pipes?Otherwise find the plug and replumb that area.

Hi my vulcan gas hot water service isn't getting hot enough anymore? please help me?


check first if you have good water flow to and from heater. lift pressure release valve on inlet and allow few sec to flow, same with outlet hot water safety valve.

remove front cover from the heater, you should see your gas connection and thermostat knob.

check if gas is burning evenly and on whole surface, check for leaks on the heater and on the lines to and from the heater.

if you did not find any faults, no leaks, safety valves work correctly, check thermostats settings,

wind it down to minimal, then turn it to about 1/4 value (you did not specify model but this should do, widening arrow or numerical values ar self explanatory), lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap (faucet if you are an american...) and check if gas ignites and burns.

set thermostat to about 2/3 value and again, lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap. check if gas ignites and if water is sufficiently hot, if too hot - wind it down to say 1/2 way, if too cold, wind it till resistant and then back off a bit, DO NOT EVER LEAVE VALVE OR THERMOSTAT ON MAX!.

if none of these help - you need either, change the thermostat or heater itself.

if works - you solved the problem, close the tap, close the cover and use the system as you normally do.

i am always recommending use of insulation on the hot water system, it saves heaps of money over the life of the system.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote... :-)

My water heater has three water connections on the top of it one has a C for cold is that a inlet or outlet ? IT'S THE COLD INLET. The other spot has a H for hot is that a inlet or outlet ? IT'S THE HOT OUTLET. And the other one is not marked what is that one for and is it a inlet or outlet ? please email me at nsjuby@yahoo.com. The last one is a pressure release valve that lets off excessive pressure when the temperature goes too high in the unit. When you install the heater, it should be installed into the drain pan that existed before or into a new one. You should also install a drain pipe from the valve to that drain pan, or into the drainage system for the house. This may depend on the codes where you live. Also install a good quality shut off valve on the inlet side for emergencies. A Ball type is good. Hope this helps,
Best Mark
I'm new to this site, so I'm not sure if I can email you directly or not. I believe not. Good Luck.

The hot water just trickles out of the hot water taps, I've checked & cleaned the tempering valves, mains water pressure is fine, is the cylinder scaled or blocked


Something is blocked. Turn off water to heater disconnect outlet and attach a waterheater flex connector to tank outlet bend other end into bucket. turn on water briefly - water should blast into bucket.
If not:>>>>>>>>>> disconnect water heater inlet -you may find part of the flex washer stuck into the inlet nipple. Or dip tube may have disintegrated and be plugging outlet nipple, if you have the energy saving nipples the ball can jam debris in the nipple.
If water does blast into bucket >>>>>>>>>>>> Then the problem is farther down the line, maybe bad mixing valve. disconnect mixing valve outlet and use a garden hose to backflush through mixing valve with bucket under hot pipe disconnected from water heater. If flow through valve is restricted, replace valve.

Central heating radiators downstairs take a long time to heat up


Problem is balancing & flow. Turn down the other rads until the inlet [flow] pipe is hot but the outlet [return] is luke warm. The rads have two valves - use the one which has a non-operation cap [just turns without doing anything]. when all the rads are the same temperature the system is said to be balanced and should be left like that using the other valves [with operating cap] to turn them on or off as required

CARVER CASCADE 2


Hello .. when an electric water heater only gets warm, it is usually the thermostats. I would replace the thermostats, make notes where the wires are connected .. make sure after replacing that the back of the thermostat is flat against the metal of the tank.

No water coming out of carver cascade water heater


is the cold side hooked to the cold side if not you will be feeding the unit backwars making it to where the cold is just comming across the top of the tank, check the dip tube also, this makes the cold water go to the bottom and push the hot out of its outlet,, how many faucets are involved, if just one might want to check the cartridge to make sure it is working properly

No water coming out of hot water taps, water is getting hot in the tank, we have changed the non return valve it izs a cascade 2 that is whot it says on the outer cover of the caravan


I'm not sure I have the whole picture here but When water simply will not flow from a tank your first guess that it is a faulty valve was a good one. While you had the valve off did you turn on the water briefly to verify that it flows well at least up to where your valve was? You may have to do this test. The clog could be right at the tank itself. Before you open up the pipe again first look for anything steel. I have found steel plugs screwed into an old threaded outlet on a pipe that has, over time, produced a large rusty blob that has blocked the flow of the water. If there is nothing like that going on you will have to open up the pipe. By the way, if hot water flows at any other locations, like the tub, then you know that the problem is not at the tank. you have to figure out where the blockage is by a process of elimination.

Water pump does not work when i turn on hot water tap


Since the cold water works, the problem is not the pump. Look for a blockage or possibly a major leak in the hot water system. if you have a kitchen sink and bathroom sink, are both hot water outlets not working? Does the water heater have shut off valve , or is its drain still open from when you winterized it (and the water running out to the ground instead of to the faucet?
