Hi all, if you do a search in this group for my email address, youll
find a post I posted a few months ago. Basically, my water heater was
not staying hot enough. I replaced both heating elements and all seemed
to go back to normal. We had hot water enough to last both our showeres
without any cold water entering the scene.
However, it has been a few onths since then and the hot water is
getting weak again. We cant even get the tub filled half way without
the hot water going bye bye. The replacing of the heating elements
helped for a few months, but now blah!
Then, my wife JUST NOW calls me telling me a horror story about a girl
she works with having to go home today becasue her hot water heater
busted and water was every where.
A friend of mine who works on them suggested i turn the thermostat up,
and it that doesnt work, replace the thermostat. And if THAT doesnt
work, get a new water heater (it is about 12 or 13 years old as it is.)
My question; Do i need to worry about my water heater blowing up
anytime soon? Are there signs that the sucker is gonna blow? And if so,
am I experiencing some of these sings? (gulp).
Thanks for everyones help in my former post, and thanks in advance to
