In response to Re: Hot Water
I would check the dip tube on the cold water inlet. There have been some water heaters with defective dip tubes. If they break off inside the tank, you will have a reduced amount of hot water.

: A year and half ago I replaced my old 50 gallon hot water
: heater (natural gas) with a 40 gallon model also n.g. The
: last couple months we have noticed that the hot water
: seems to run out before our shower is over or before
: the tub is filled for a bath. Can you give me some hints
: on where to start looking for possible causes. Since
: purchasing I have never drained/flushed the new tank,
: but in all the years we had our old tank (12 years) I
: never drained it.

: Any help will be appreciated.

: Thanks.
