Re: Not enough hot water - house has 2 WH connected together.

We've been unable to take more than a 5-10 minute shower. Filling the jetted tub for a bath is out of the question.

With your 80 gallon combined, that still might be an issue unless..... you fill the tub at a slower rate, 25%, give the heater time to run as you are filling it. Simple really, we have to do it too.

Your average bathtub holds 50-60 gallons of water. If you can't get a tub full of hot enough water out of 80 gallons of water heating capacity, something is wrong.

Mine is a large jetted bath that holds more than 80 gallons. Tis why.
