Question about Rheem Water Heaters
I have a Rheem quick recovery hot water system, i am in australia and it has a mandatory tempering valve fitted that limits it to 50degrees, but on cold mornings it barely gets hot enough to have a warm shower,no cold water needed!
i have wound the tempering valve all the way and it is set to the highest setting. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Sound like the mixing valve is damage.. even though the valve is mandatory rheem tankless system don't really need one due to the fact you can set the temp to avoid scalding..these unit will only go up to 120F (48C) The only reason you wll need a mixing valve is when you store water because you have to mantain a temp to kill bacteria and since there is no storage on the tankless it just does not make sense to have one. also you can turn down the temp on the control at anytime to any desire temp..this is a plumbing regulation in many part of the world that need to be look at a little more carefully..not only where you live.
