Landlord Installed New 30 Gallon Electric Water Heater, Is It True Only a 10 Minute Shower?

The water heater is too small for the amount of people. You should have at least a 40 gallon. The preferred would have been a 50. But thats renting for you. They go the aka cheapest route

1. Why would a new electric water heater blow breaker?

You may have it wired backwards. Breaker could be weak. or over loaded. The new heater may be drawing to many amps for the breaker, just a thought. Good luck. ww

2. should i wrap my amtrol electric water heater with insulation?

Most new-ish water heaters already have a lot of insulation. Adding more will never even recoup the cost of that insulation. It wo not hurt anything though, so long as you do not cover up any vents.

3. My hot electric water heater produces hot water, but there is water on the floor?

It could be either one. Check all the fittings on top of tank. Most warrantys are 5 years

4. Is connecting a 16A plug to 10A sockets for an electric water heater a problem?

First thing you need to check out the wire size in there. If wire size 4sq.mm or above you can change the 10 A socket to 16A

5. moving electric water heater to old shower cove

You can move the water heater to just about anywhere that would be convenient. However, it is not a good idea to reduce the size down from 3/4" to 1/2" directly off of the tank. You will likely run into issues with water pressure. In branch plumbing, it is best to keep the size of the pipe at its maximum until it branches off to a specific fixture. Most fixtures, with the exception of a toilet takes 1/2". A toilet is actually reduced to 5/8" by the time it gets to the fill valve. 5/8" is an odd size in plumbing, so most plumbers typically run 1/2" anyway.You should try to extend the 3/4" pipe as far as you can go, and then tee off of it using multiple 3/4 x 3/4 x 1/2 tees. When you tee off, try to make that run directly to a fixture without teeing off again. This will greatly help keep the water pressure balanced. If all of the plumbing is 1/2", then the fixtures will compete against each other for water because there is not enough volume of water coming through the pipe

6. What is a Electric Water Heater Timer?

Basic timer switch at power source to water heater. Allows user to turn wAter heater on and off at certain hrs. For example, on at 5 am, off at 9 am then on at 4 pm and off at 9 pm. Nine hours instead of 24 constantly reheating same water

7. I have to continuously press the reset button on my electric water heater?

The reset is failing. You need to service it. it is telling you that there is a short in the unit. It could be a heating element starting to short out. It could be the thermostat going bad. Those are the 2 most common things to go on a electric unit. Unless you know how to remove the element I would call the plumber or a friend that has this type of knowladge. It's not hard you just need the right tool and knowladge

8. My Mobile home electric water heater has a leak but i cant find the cold water shut off, can anyone help?

good advice from gilfinn. I would also drain the heater to stop the leak completely. Hook a hose to the drain, open the spigot and let it drain out. You might have to open a hot water spigot in the bathroom or kitchen also so the water will flow.

9. Electric water heater leaks around the top, how do I fix it?

By design it is always filled to capacity, it is a pressure tank. Do not mess with the relief valve, it is there to prevent the tank from exploding due to malfunction causing overheating (if you are curious about that just do an internet search of boiler explosions). Do not turn off the water supply and drain the tank without also turning off the heat source (electric or gas, by the way?). you (or a plumber) should be able to determine if the fittings are leaking and repair them if they are. If the tank itself is compromised you need to replace the whole unit
