In response to Re: Reliance 501 dip tube problem
The reason for replacing the dip tube is because the bad ones would break off and then the plastic particles would plug up the faucets and theuser would run out of hot water very quickly.

: Can you tell me who manufactures the Reliance 501 hot water tank and who we should contact about the dip tube problem? The class action suit ended in 2000 and my parents are having this very problem with their hot water tank. They have been told by a local plumber that it is not necessary to replace the dip tube because the milky water and deposits are not harmful!
