In response to Re: water lines constant running and ready hot water
It is simple. You have a leak in the floor. That is the sound you hear. It is close to the bathroom so that is why you have immediate hot water. When the leak gets bad enough your hot water heater will not be able to keep up with the loss and you will have warm or cold water. When this happens do not replace the water heater. Your first call should be to your homeowner's insurance company, the second one to a leak locator company, and the third call should be to a plumber to repair the lead.
: This may be a stupid question but since I am a new home owner and never involved in plumbing, had to ask.

: We recently bought a home, a one story in Florida and last week had first experience with a hard freeze. Not sure if that had anything to do with anything but this weekend noticed that there is always the sound of running water in our bathrooms. Also, now when we turn the hot water on, we have immediate hot water. And now occasionally we have air in the water lines in our bathroom closest to the water heater (electric).
: Maybe there is nothing wrong and we haven't noticed before. But, could it be explained what is going on.

: Thanks.
