Temporary Loss of Hot Water in Shower
Posted by Francis Niland on February 13, 2003 at 14:05:45:
My wife states that the hot water runs cold in our shower after four or five minutes. It is located at the point farthest from the tank. Shortly thereafter I am able to pull hot water from another bathroom spigot located nearer the heater. This has happened on two occasions. I later take a shower and don't encounter any dissipation in the hot water supply. Can you suggest a possible cause for this intermttent problem. My forth gallon tank is about 15 years old and has been serviced several times...once or twice with a new upper and lower element and once again for a new thermostat. Thank you
