We are having some water/plumbing issues. We have fresh water
pump that goes to accumulator tank then to cold water
manifold with input to hot water heater. Hot water heater output goes to hot water manifold and distributed to faucets.
The water heater was brand new last season. It's an 11 gallon seaward
water heater. We currently have a bypass installed on the water heater for winterization however it currently is set to flow through the tank and not to bypass
We changed out the fresh water pump at the start of this season due to failure.
problem is very limited hot water. I am hooked to shore power
and have had the water heater breaker on for long enough to sufficiently heat the tank. The hose coming out of tank is warm. I turn on the faucet and get hot water for about 1-2 minutes until the fresh water pump kicks on and when the pump stops about 30 seconds later the water turns cold and remains cold until it is unused for a period of time and then we start the same cycle.
I should have plenty of hot water and I don't know why it is not staying hot.
