Question about Water Heaters
Could be a couple of problems. If an older water heater the inlet a/o outlet nipples could be corroded or limed up closed. If a newer tank, the "Pith balls", which are energy saving devices, could be jammed in the inlet or outlet nipples of the tank. Try opening the drain valve. If you have good pressure you can eliminate the inlet pith ball as being your problem. Usually it's the outlet one that jams closed. Either problem will mean a call to your local service provider but if your so inclined you can remove and replace these items if a supplier is near by.
