Water heater forum

Anyone know where I can find water heater replacement forum.
My old water heater is about gone. I need to replace a new one with same capacity 40 gallons with nature gas.

What I was not sure is do I need to add on a pressure tanking or replace hot water pipe in the bathroom to a large pipe?

The problem that we are having is when taking a shower and someone turn on water anywhere in the house then the shower water will have such change from hot to cold real quick. It's just sock you when you are in the shower.

I thought replacing new water heater with pressure tank on top will solve the problem. Does it? Anyone know?

I also want to add a Water Softner next to the new water heater since I have to replace the water heater. Does the Water Softener is hard to install? I thought I could have it done at the same time. Like shooting to birds with 1 stone.

Thanks to any response.

You can go over to www.terrylove.com. That is a plumbing forum...not quite as friendly as this one but you should be able to get the answers you want.

If that doesn't work, I'll always think it should have.

Hi Jeremy

Adding an expansion tank will always be a good idea. It will not help your temperature change issues. That will only be corrected by changing out your shower valve with a pressure balance valve (required for all new construction).

While I'm sure a plumber can handle adding a water softener to your home, I suggest you do further research and have your water analyzed, and get several bids by companies that specialize in water softening or filtration.

Please come back and let us know what Terry's forum members suggest.
