Why do I not get enough hot water

Why do I not get enough hot water or as much hot water as I used to?

If you have an older water heater, you might have a sediment buildup problem inside your tank. As a water heater ages, it tends to accumulate sediment and deposits at the bottom. If the water heater is not cleaned periodically, the sediment may rise to a level that will act as a barrier between the burner and the water, making it harder to heat, thus giving you less hot water. There could also be a problem with a faulty part or a bad dip tube in the water heater. Also see our Not Enough Hot Water page for more information regarding not getting enough hot water.
