No Hot Water
by Sherm Turner
Dear Mr. Plumber,
I recently did an addition to my home where we added a new master Bathroom with a sizeable whirlpool tub. Now our new 40 gallon Hot Water Heater, seems to be runing out of hot water. The hardware store said that there is nothing wrong with the new hot water heater.

If your hot water heater worked and satisfied your needs before you installed the new addition and new master bathroom, then you should increase the size of your hot water heater from 40 gallon to a 75 gallon and you will have more hot water. Make sure a plumber does this job so you will not get ripped-off.
