We installed a new hot water heat and we still do not have hot water. We were having our bathroom remodeled at the same time the water heater went out. So now the plumber is saying that the contractor probably put one of the faucets in the bath room backwards so it is prventing the hot water to go through out the house. We do get hot water at the kitchen sink which is the sink closest to the water heater for about 2 min. The plumber wants to tear apart out new bathroom faucets to check and make sure they were not put in backwards. To me it sounds like the hot water heater company just doesn't want to replace the hot water tank which is probably the easiest and cheapist solution. Do you think it could really be faucets installed backwards from preventing the whole house from getting hot water
