      Sometimes the water is hot other times warm. Temperture control knob turned up as far as it will go?

      I BET THAT YOUR WATER HEATER IS OLD AND FULL OF SEDIMENT. NOW YOU CAN DO A COUPLE OF THINGS, IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE A LITTLE LOW ON FUNDS THAN TRIE THIS. DOWN AT THE BOTTOM 0F YOUR WATER HEATER YOU WILL SEE WHAT LOOKS LIKE A HOSE BIB, THIS IS WERE YOU DRAIN THE WATER HEATER. TAKE A GRADEN HOSE AND HOOK IT TO THE BIB ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HEATER AND PLACE THE OTHER END OF THE HOSE OUTSIDE, THAN TURN THE HOSE BIB ON AND LET IT FLUSH FOR ABOUT 30 MIN. THIS WILL REMOVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF SEDIMENT FROM YOUR HEATER AND ALLOW IT TO HEAT FASTER. OH! ONE THING TURN YOUR GAS VALVE TO PILOT YOUR DONT WANT TO PAY FOR THE WASTE OF GAS. THE OTHER THING YOU CAN DO IS REPLACE THAT WATER HEATER WITH A NEW ONE… GOOD LUCK YOUR FRIEND THE PIPEXPERT…..
