    I just replaced a state single element 40 gallon water heater with a 50 gallon double element, What did I do wrong? Here is my Problems

    I have hot water, but not real hot, the old heater was hotter. when I am in the shower if someone even just cracks another spigot in the house I loose everything, no heat whatsoever. when I installed the heater. I followed the directions about filling to avoid a dryfire on the upper element, could it still have dry fired? I filled the tank of with all the hotwater valves open in the house to force the air out before I put electric to it. Any suggestions?

    Use the Tanklets link at the left side of the forum index page and read the one titled Cross Connections. Do the simple test described there and let us know what you find.
