We have been having trouble with our water heater for several weeks. Someone told us our Rheem water heater was part of a class action suit. There was a faulty dip rod which disintegrated in the tank. That was replaced and the tank was drained. However, we are still finding debris from the hot water in our sink aerators, and the showerheads are still clogging up. We called a plumber and he said it just takes awhile to clear itself out. Is this true? Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a solution besides replacing the whole water heater? PLEASE HELP!! Thanks Tonya
With a new dip tube in the tank the inlet water is being directed to the bottom of the tank and stirring up the sediment that has built up down there. I would also try doing a thorough flushing of the tank, this should help.
