We moved into our new house and used our whirlpool tub for the first time.
Guess what, we ran out of hot water.We told the builder about the problem
and he had a plumber install a 40 gallon electric hot water heater to the
output my 48 gallon gas water heater (builder pick up the cost). I now get
120 degree hot water into my AKER 100 gallon whirlpool tube (average
operational volume 74 gallon).
My question is:
1 If I use the tub about every 5 weeks and I turn it on a day before will
there be a problem with bacterial in the water from the electric tank?
2 Will the electric hot water heater cost a lot to operate If I leave it on
all the time? I have a by-pass valves to both units. There are only two
people living in the house that require hot water.
