In response to Re: Loosing water tempature
: I have two people living in the house and once one person takes a hot shower in the morning there is no more hot water left for the second person. I have a 50 gallon water heater that is about 8 years old. Any suggestions on what may be causing me to loose hot water so quick.

: thanks
Dave; check the "dip tube"..it could have broke. A dip tube allows any incoming cold water to come in near the tank's bottom,thus pushing the hot water up. If the tube is broke (shortened) ,then the incoming water mixes at the upper tank level and cools it off quicker.. They are not expensive to buy. Good luck. Hube
