Cold water is just asymptomatic hot water.

Or is it hot water with an unrealized potential?

The Heavy Hot Water heater comes with ball bearings while the Super Heavy Hot Water Heater comes with roller bearings.

Good grief you missed the point.
Heavy water is used to COOL a fast breeding nuclear reactor.
So a Hot water heater must be a cooler because it only heats the water so it can cool down so it can heat it back up again.


Now I'm confused and not sure what I should call the thing I will go back to post #1 and figure this thing out I may have misunderstood the question.

If you want a real answer, the real answer is.......... it is a water heater when first installed. After that it is a hot water heater. It never lets the water get cold. It reheats it while the water is still heated.

Water never stays or collects in my water heater. Only cold water enters and hot water exits. There is a small amount that stays in the heat exchanger, but not enough to consider usable.

My heater does not reheat water, only heats it one time before sending it out the faucet.

I have a water heater.

Why not?

Normally I would say hard to argue with facts, but this fun thread has proven that statement wrong.

Unless I have missed it no one has mentioned this but.. technically there is no such thing as cold. It is the absence of heat.
