Hot Water Heater

Hi All,

We just picked up our DRV Tradition a few weeks ago and just love it but the hot water is not hot enough. Is there a way to make it warmer or are they all about luke warm?

Thanks
rob

Take a water temp right after it shuts down closest to the HWH it should be in the range of 130 to 140 140 being the highest as for that where the t-stat will shut it off at. there is no adjustment on them just shuts down at set t-stat temp

If you mean that you are not getting enough hot water for showers (IE not re-generating enough hot water fast enough) put the gas on and it should help some.

Check the water heater by-pass for correct positioning of the valves. Incorrect valve positions could cause luke warm water.
