increasing temp of water heater
    #2025845 - 10/20/03 03:58 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Interested in increasing temperature of water heater to produce pasteurization-region water temps. How long does it take for a change to take effect after water heater control is changed? 1 hour? 1 day?

Your water heater will not likely get the water to 160, I don't know many fish like that temp.

I think he meant hot water tank, the time that it will take to heat up to 160 depends on what you have it set at right now, if you're in doubt you can always just put a thermometer under the tap.

save on your energy bills, and reduce your temp to 120F. most hot water heaters are set to high and can burn you. and its a waste of $$. about 20% of your electric bill will go to heating your water at a normal temp.

use a micro or stove to reach higher temp.

BTW for a 50 gal.h/w/h it should only take about 20 min to reach that temp.



happy reading
