Hot Water Heater

Why in the world would someone want to heat water that is already hot? I'm going to stick with a water heater for all my needs.

Technically, a water heater will heat water to a certain temperature (varies by mfg.) and re-heats hot water back to this same set point. So, by calling a water heater a hot water heater is not incorrect.

Hot water maintainer would be a better term then.

@Kevin-B,

And why is it that so many people are "ANXIOUS to see you"... when you really hope they're "EXCITED!"?!?!

And why do so many people say they "COULD care less"... when really they COULDN'T?!?!?

And why do we park on DRIVEways... and drive on PARKways?

And if you ship something on a boat, it's CARgo... but by truck it's a SHIPment!!

So many oddities in the English language! LOL!

This would refer that it has always been hot and the appliance keeps it that way; Not the case. At some point it will heat cold water and if left on will maintain or re-heat the hot water.
