Hot Water Heater Problems, warm water only


When a water heater produces worm water only you have a problem with the dip tub. The dip tube is a plastic pipe that fits down into the water heater inlet, and usually has a small hole about 6 inches from the top of the pipe. The dip tube directs the incoming cold liquid down to the bottom of the tank.  If the dip tube is broken, the incoming cold liquid can mix with the outgoing hot liquid and cause it to seem as though you are running out of hot water.
Other causes may include: wrong setting on a thermostat, a defective thermostat, burned out heating elements (electric water heaters only), or a heavy buildup of sediment.
