The water heater dip tube, what it does, how do you know if it is bad, and how to replace it.
The above image is a water heater with a broken dip tube
notice how the cold water goes over the hot water in the tank
and only allows the hot water above the break to go out into the
hot line, leaving all the rest of the hot water in the tank.
this is one of the reasons "NOT THE ONLY ONE" you may only have a few
minutes of hot water.
Other reasons you may only have 5
minutes of hot water
