Hello: With gas heaters, the only thing that can mess with temperature control under conditions you’ve described, is the probe behind the thermostat getting buried in sediment. With the age of the tank and apparent hardness of the water, that may be what’s going on. I know from experience that getting that much sediment out of a gas heater is difficult, even with the right tools 😕 All considered, you might want to get a new heater. Elsewhere on this site is info on how to set up a new unit for easy maintenance and long life.

Yours, Larry
