hi, about 2 weeks ago the water on my street was suddenly shut off. About 5 hours later is came back on, but the water was sputtering for a while. Shortly after i noticed the hot water seemed to be running out faster than normal while taking showers.
Then, after some complaining my husband decided to go take a look. It is a 30 gallon tank in a mobile home, all electric. He said the reset button was tripped so he pushed it. Well then we had no hot water. So, we purchased a new upper element and lower element, thermostat and limit switch were also on them.
After installing them, and showing me the half eroded element, still no hot water. We cannot afford to pay for a large repair bill from a plumber but now after 2 weeks and 3 kids, its out of control. Any ideas what may be wrong before we have to skip our rent payment for a large repair cost?
