What is the heat recovery time for a 40 gallon hot water tank?
As high as the highest setting available on the tank.
With either a gas flame or electically.
Usually 30 amp
you will see a large brass nut with a plastic cover and electrical wire coming from it, normally at the top and to one side of the hot water cylinder, this is the immersion heater, there are two common lengths, 27 inch and 11 inch. Also, there are side entry immersion heaters. Some cylinders have both top and side, the lower, side mounted being the main one and the top acting as a booster for… Read More
To fasten the heating in a particular object. This is caused by the the hot ar coming from the flame to the object above. This is called convection, if the heating element is placed somewhere else convection won't occur the only heating classification available will be radiation, which is the transfer of heat with the space in between the heater and the object. In simpler if you put on top of the fire its hot… Read More
fuel /electric shut off
You first turn OFF the power to tank, now remove the anode rod, ( a large bolt head on top of the tank, attached to what may remain of your rod) . then attach a hose pipe to the bottom fitting, lead it outside or to any drain, turn on the valve by it, turn OFF your inlet valve and open the relief valve so air can enter the H/W tank. Let the whole tank… Read More
20 years at least, provided the hot water heater is serviced and maintained by a plumber once a year.
To allow for the expansion of heated thot water
The expansion tank is used for back pressure affecting ur water heater
UK answer: a typical immersion heater uses 3 kW and is fed by a 1.5 mm2 cable.
It should be right above the tank on the incoming cold pipe.
it is a tank that preheats water and holds until you use it
It depends on the electricity consumtion of the hot water tank either 10/2 or 12/2 and on the lengh of the run from the panel to the tank.
If you just filled the tank on a 40 gal. about 30 to 45 min.
In most cases, about 15 minutes.
Which uses more energy A heated 16 gallon 260 watt water tub or a floated tank deicer for a 100-150 gallon water trough?
We would need to know the wattage of the floated tank deicer to compare. But the difference is likely to depend on how well they are insulated. The tub would probably be easier to insulate (lag), the trough would be more open to the air and lose more heat.
The hot water tank might be undersized for your usage.
It is a thermal jacket that fits over the tank to insulate it
A water heater, a hot water tank, a geyser, a boiler.
Your answer depends on the use and demand for hot water among the residents of the eight units. Your local plumbing vendor can advise you, given that you survey the current residents and ascertain individual demands.
Will installing a hot water tank help increase hot water pressure so two faucets can run hot water at the same time?
NOPE, actually it will cause more pressuyre drop do to friction losses
water. h2o. two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen
Temperature can be set, generally set at 75 degrees or so
There is insulation between the outside and inside wall of a hot water tank. There is also an insulation product that you can get to wrap around the outside of the hot water tank as well. Kit is usually available at any plumbing or hardware store. Only good for electrical HWT, as a gas tank has a flue and the insulation would be a waste on the outside of the gas tank
how long does it take for hot water after lighting water tank its gas?
It could be due to a deffective element or possibly a build-up of sediment in the bottom of the tank.
What air pressure is there in a pressure tank In a hot water heating system what should the pressure in the tank be?
A hot water heating systems water pressure should be 12-25 psi , the air in the expansion tank should be set around 10 psi but can only be accurately tested with no water pressure against it. Usually u can tell if the tank is bad when the relief valve on the boiler starts releasing water
Temperature is too high or the valve is bad.
No, a hot water tank heats water by itself.
it depends on the size of the tank, how well insulated the tank is, the ambient temperature and how hot the water was initially as set by the thermostat.
Use volume which is cm3 ? x ? x ?Length WidthDepth
To keep the temperature of the tank constantly hot.
Is it switched on? is the filter clean? is the element and thermostat working properly?
The normal home setting is 132F. -If you have small children who may use it,reduce to 115-120 right on the element adjuster.
Yes, you will only have as much pressure as you do with the cold side, probably slightly less.
The size that fits the receptacle in the tank ! -Generally in domestic heaters this is a 1,500 or 3,000 watt element. Some are screwed in and others are held by 4 bolts.
If your H/W tank is good, you should be able to have a warm shower for at least 25-30 minutes. If that doesn't happen, either it is set too low or one element has failed.
The thermostat is broken. If it's not heating at all the heater element and/or it's fuse is broken.
Yes, but there still is all the water stored in the tank plus the water stored in the existing hot water lines throughout your home that will eventually leak out.If you intend to install a hot water heater (HWH) yourself and you do not have valves to isolate the existing plumbing then turn off your main water supply, drain the water from your home using the lowest level sink, then attach a hose to the… Read More
Older water heaters have been in the house for a while and usually build up sediment in the bottom of the tank. This can be calcium deposits that have broken off and sand that came in the house with the water. In any case, once you have sediment in the tank the water heater won't work anywhere NEAR as efficiently as when it was new. Water heaters turn on when cold water comes into the… Read More
Hot water holding systems have been used as far back as the Romans. They particularly liked building hot water baths, of a communal nature. I would suspect that as soon as the copper and bronze age occurred, a shaped bowl was used to heat water.
If the hot water tank is off it is possible. It is also possible for the cold water going to the hot water tank to freeze. Insulate all pipes that are exposed - or let them drip (this is more expensive!)
No, they are rigid.
There is no filter in a hot water tank. It is very easy and cheap to fit one either side of it.
