Question about Water Heaters
Make sure both thermostats are set to a minimum of 130 degrees to prevent bacterial growth. Your water heater has 2 elements. Have you replaced them both. If you have then you may have a heavy buildup of sediment. Turn the water source off, open your hot water faucets and remove the aerators on everyone in your home. Connect a water hose to the drain connection on the bottom of the water heater and run it outside. Make sure it is lower than the drain. Drain all the water out of the tank. Shut the valve off and remove the water hose. Shut all hot water faucets off except one and turn the water source back on. When you see and hear water coming from that one faucet turn if off. Turn all the others on to help remove any loose sediment. Put the aerators back on all faucets. You may also have a broken dip tube. It goes down into the tank and if it is broken then cold water cannot get to the bottom of the tank which will make it appear that the heater is not working.
