I always thought that if the dip tube in the water heater broke that the incoming cold water would mix with the hot water in the tank and the cause would be less hot water .The purpose of the dip tube is to direct the incoming cold water down to the thermostat and cause the burner to activate when the water in the tank is below the set point of the thermostat.I must be wrong. Never heard of it causing a cross connection.Somebody straighten me out.
