Questions & Answers

My old water heater is 65 gallon, is going to be ok to down 55 gallon water heater? To change?

Asked by: Gg
The choice of tank capacity is completely related to your specific needs. If you frequently run out of hot water with your 65 gallon tank, then a 55 gallon tank will probably not be your best option as a replacement. However, if you rarely run out of hot water with your current tank, this tank may also serve your needs.

I have heard companies preset the dial to 120 degrees maximum, which is only one degree above allowed legionella bacteria to flourish, causing Legionnaires Disease. Can it be adjusted internally to 130 to stay healthy or 150 to fill a garden tub?
Asked by: tublover
This water heater can be set to a maximum temperature of 150 degrees.

Is there a significant difference between my old 66 gallon V’s the new 55 gallon?

I need to replace my water heater and my current water heater is 66 gallons, however I dont find anythjng around that size except 80gallons which I think is too big. I would like to know the difference between my cureent 66 gallon and this new one 55 gallons. Will we run out of hot water fast ? We are a family of 5. Thank you.
Asked by: Yuny
It would depend on how you use it, the number of people in the family and the water hardness you have in your home. if you do back-to-back showers for four or five people you would probably notice a difference other than that no you probably would never notice any difference
