It is a ten gallon Attwood tank. I believe I may need to change it. How is this done? Does it come out the outside or inside? How much do they cost? Where is the best place to purchase one?
Thanks for your time.
Welcome to the forum; there is a lot of very valuable information here.
Sounds like your problem is more blockage than a bad water heater. If the heater is not leaking and is producing hot water, I think you should look somewhere else for the solution to your problem.
First, I'd remove the drain plug and see if you can get a good flow there; if so , the water heater is ok. Flush it good while you are at it and see what comes out. If you get a lot of crud, it may have worked its way into the plumbing and stopped something up.
Second , see if you have the by pass valves set correctly and are in the fully open or closed position. All heaters do not have them, but those that do could cause this problem.
If this does not find the problem then you will have to work your way downstream from the water heater to find where the flow restriction is.
