Question DetailsAsked on 5/21/2020

I have a question about water heating.

I have a question about water heating. I recently purchased a Rheem PR0E50 T2 RH95. I purchased it to replace my old water heater because I suddenly stopped getting hot water out of any of my faucets. However, after replacing the old water heater, I am still not getting any hot water. I have discovered, if I shut off the water for long periods, I will start to receive hot water, for periods of time that vary based on how long the water has been shutoff. I have also noticed that both the hot water and cold water pipes become very hot when the water has been completely shutoff. And the cold water pipe becomes extremely cold, while the hot water pipe becomes lukewarm, after the water is turned on again. Is this normal? What other factors could prevent hot water from reaching the faucets over time?
