I'm guessing you have made sure the pressure release valve on the side is closed??

have you checked the pipes leading off the storage tank??? you should check around the tank to see if you can see like wet patches. you might have a leak under the surface. not sure apart from that.

I had a similar problem. When we has all the big rains a few months ago it moved the dirt from underneath the unit. The weight of the full unit caused it to drop a few inches and because of the way the pipes coming in were routed, the inlet pipe was majorly kinked therefore restricting the flow. Worth a look.

i think you migh tbe right gx-rex, if you wait long enough we get hot water but it only trickles. il have to look for the squashed pipe in the morning to be sure.
