Inefficient Water Heater

Water HeaterEvery home has a water heater, as most know the operation of it is pretty simple, it holds water and gets hot to a set or preset temperature that you may have set it too, when the water goes in the tank it is cold when it comes out it is hot that’s all most of us know, but wait there is more. Say your taking a shower and you notice the water not being as hot for as long, say you notice it for 10 minutes now you notice it being hot for only 5 minutes, so you assume water heater is no good. Wait right there don’t call the plumber just yet! There is a way for you to check, where the cold water comes into the tank there is a dip tube that goes from the top of the tank to approx 4-6 inches from the bottom, well that tube might be broken. Simply remove the cold water supply line to tank insert index finger and pull out dip tube, should be almost as long as the water heater if not most home centers have one. Cost about $5. More
