lost hot water
Got up this morning and the son told me that we didn't have hot water. Checked and the burner was on and I thought maybe I had a hot water line that had broke but can't hear any water running in the crawl space. Waited about a half hour and we had hot water back finally. We've never had this problem before so I'm wondering if maybe the tank is getting full of sediment and is having a hard time recovering from showers or what. The tank is a Reliant gas heater that was made in 91. Have been thinking I ought to replace it since I'm probably on borrowed time. If so what would be a good brand to get or maybe better what would be a good brand to avoid?
