Can a Water Heater Handle this?
I have a 40 gallon gas water heater manufactured in 2004. I can fill up a regular 5 foot long bathtub with hot water no problem. However, if someone decides to take a shower in 30 minutes, the water coming out is lukewarm at best.
My question is whether such a water heater should be able to handle taking a shower relatively soon after filling up a bathtub, or do I need to wait more? Thanks for the info.
