Re: Not enough hot water to fill tub. Just get a bigger tank?


If the real issue is just the tub, you could get a mini instant water heater near the tub. You would either need gas or electric run to the site, but I've seen people that put one near each bathroom. It wouldn't use energy unless you were filling the tub. Might be too expensive for a relatively trivial issue.

One town I lived in, five years was about right. Very calcified water.

Yea, i thought about getting an in line heater or just replacing the whole tub with a nicer whirlpool with built in heater, but that ends up being a lot more expensive than just another tank.

Again, I'll see what the plumber says after he comes out and sees the exact situation.
