During daylight savings time I have no shortage of hot water to my back
shower. Once daylight savings time ends (and the weather gets colder),
there is a sudden shortage of hot water and I must cut my showers short or
I have a single knob to vary how much hot water/cold water I get, and I have
noticed once there is no more hot water, I can 'overtwist' the knob slightly
and there seems to be more available hot water for a short time.
My hot water heater is insulated, as are all pipes leaving the hotwater
heater so heat losses I am not considering. Is is possible at the end of
daylight savings time the local water company uses a different water source
which is much colder (~10F) than the original source during the other parts
of the year? Is there some component which is possibly faulty? Is it
possible a timer exists within my system of which I am not aware which could
be affected by the time change?
Any thoughts are appreciated.
