Why Am I Running Out of Hot Water?
There could be many reasons your water heater isn’t producing enough hot water. Your water heater could be producing too little hot water, the settings could be incorrect, or it could be more serious. Hot water can be robbed by sediment buildup, broken heating elements or dip tubes, as well as leaks.

Water comes out in spurts, hot and cold
Your hot water is running hot and cold in a random fashion, regardless of what you tell the water heater. If you have hard water, if your pipes are old or your anode rod is worn, sediment will build up more quickly. The tank will have less hot water because of sediment buildup. It can absorb too much of the heat from the heating element.
First, you can try draining the tank. We recommend either doing it yourself or hiring professionals to do a complete drain and flush about once a year. It’s possible that your hot water is not getting enough after the flush. The only solution to this problem is to replace the tank. It is important to replace your tank quickly, otherwise, it might explode.
After a short time, hot water runs out.
Two heating elements are found in most water heaters: one at the top and one at the bottom. The tank’s top heating element heats water around the tank repeatedly. To keep the tank at a constant temperature, the bottom heating element heats the water that has been added to it. That’s at least what it should be doing.
If the bottom heating element fails to work, it’s not heating enough water to heat your tank. You’ll have to rely on the water that your top heating element heats. Your water heater will send unheated water to you if that water runs out. This can lead to the unpleasant shower surprise we’re all too familiar with. This problem can be fixed by replacing the tank’s bottom-water heater element. We’ll quickly take care of the problem by giving you a call. This post was written by Joey Denick.
