    I wish I had natural gas lines here. I dislike the electric range also.
    I believe that would depend on how the house was plumbed and lenght of runs and if it's bare copper that's uninsulated. If insulated and short runs ,,, sure... But a simple change of longer uninsulated copper pipe and the hot water has a home run back to the WH so with radiance it cycles itself back to the WH it's all changed.
    And if your water was say 210 or more the t&p valve should have popped open.. and with your water being really hot, it should take awhile to cool off.
    How old were the shower fixtures in that home?

    1976

    Using my IR temp gun I got the outside of the tank near where the top thermostat is I got 165, I didn't test it that evening because to get to my water heater I have to climb over top of my washing machine, its in a closet. I normally set it at 130 so I can run straight hot water and not burn myself.

    My copper pipe in the walls is uninsulated, but very short as shower fixture is on the other side of the wall from the heater.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Solar, Baby!
    Do you own or lease your solar? Do you know what your solar will deliver on a average sunny day?

    And how much is your solar payment?
    The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

    Exactly why I d9nt trust solar yet. I'm waiting to see someone finish the payments and not have any surprise expenses that keep the money flowing out.
    Imagine how much better America would be if you would simply don a pair a pants before sitting down at your Playskool My First 'Puter.
