Do you have all the taps turned off? Sometimes that will mess up the temperatures.

Also check to see that all of the water heater bypass valves are in the correct position.

The shutoff values are easy. If the tap goes across the line itís closed. If itís with the line itís open. Basically the lines going into and out of the heater need to be in line and the one going between the 2 lines , the bypass line, needs to be across the line.

This thread that we keep as a sticky at the top of the plumbing section may help, as it explains the bypass/crossover valves for winterization.


NO (OR LUKEWARM) HOT WATER -Please read first
