      I just had a new GE water heater installed and the hot water comes out looking milky white from the amount of tiny bubbles in it. After a few minutes the bubbles dissipate and the water is clear. Does anyone know what causes this? Is air getting in or trapped in the system? or is it a pressure of piping issue? I’d appreciate any advice.

      Sounds like there is a little air in the tank yet, it will leave in time.

      Could also be the anode in the water heater. One way of eliminating it is to install an air eliminating valve at a high point in the draw off pipe near the water heater. These valves are normally used on a radiator systems but I have has some success using them with the same problem you present.
