In Topic: Water heater working...but not...

08 January 2013 - 04:08 PM

One of those times I just want to smack myself in the head and say.... DUH!!!!  ;)


You know - that makes complete sense! We've had some random issues with the shower either being too hot or too cold - hard time adjusting it to something in between. Don't know WHY I didn't think about it being a problem at the shower? Guess I've just been fearing the worst trying to get a little more life out of the water heater!


I had a similar instance of your hot water toilet at my mom's place - also the cartridge.


Thanks for the help! I'll let you know later tonight if that did the trick for sure.   :D





Getting a new wife and kid is also not a bad idea...

Of course I didn't test it there. :/  I checked it up in the kitchen faucet maybe a total of 20 minutes after I'd gotten out of the shower - and it was much hotter than the shower was.

I know you're already fixing the problem (I think) - but curious if you have and checked the thermal expansion tank on it? I bring that up because I found that the air bladder inside mine failed last summer, which left if full of black/brown gunk. However, it sounds like you have more volume than that would produce. Something to check anyway if you have one.

In Topic: Overstuffing Washing Machines

I guess I should say STUFFS it full instead of "packs." My point is that by no means is it loosely filled in a way that you can possibly have enough water to properly clean and rinse the clothing. This is evident by the condition of our clothes that seem to get 'worn out' faster than normal, don't always seem to get clean, or have the soap/softener residue as mentioned before.

I'll get the model info tonight. It's a few years old and I've replaced parts on it myself already.
