My name is Mike and this is my first post.
I'm in Vancouver BC.
I have a suite below and it was vacant for 2.5 months. No renter ever mentioned a problem about this.
The new renter claims the hot water runs out quickly. Even at 4am, he says the tub only gets 5 inches full before it starts getting cooler. At 4am, I assume the hot water tank is totally full. I don't take baths, so is this typical behaviour?
When the faucet is first on it is very hot.
I already adjusted the scolding limiter so it is completely hot but that apparently didn't solve it.
Would this have anything to do with the moen valve cartridge?
It was only put in 3 years ago and no other tenant mentioned this problem.
How would the cartridge either be letting some cold mix in or ?
I have also read it could be the dip tube on the hot water heater. The tank is 20 years old but we could usually get at least 2 showers (20 mins) before I notice it is only warm not hot.
I don't have the model number but I have the installation manual and it lists several models.
L82382, L82383, TL2301
Any help or guidance appreciated.
