If your water heater never gets the water as hot as you would like, and you don't think that the problem has to do with the distance from the tank to your shower or sink, the problem is most likely the water heater. If you have an older water heater that is stored in a basement or somewhere in the home, and it takes up a lot of space to store gallons of water, it's time to upgrade.
Is your water heater currently in an odd place, and you are looking to move it to a different part of your home? If so, this may not be as easy as it seems at first. The water heater could be where it is for a good reason, and changing the location could cause some problems you may not have thought of. Here are some things to consider when moving a water heater.

If you are remodeling your bathroom or having some plumbing work done, it can be helpful to learn more about different bath tub spouts.
Faucets should normally be quiet. Although they do make some noise, it should be limited. If your faucet is particularly loud or noisy, it can quickly become very annoying. Fortunately, a noisy faucet is something that is usually easy to fix.
So what might be causing a loud faucet? Here are four common causes:
1. Clogged Aerator
A clogged aerator may be the cause of your noisy faucet. Mineral deposits and debris can easily become stuck inside the mesh screen of the aerator.
Repairing a leaking bathroom faucet is a fairly easy job even if you have limited do-it-yourself repair experience. The main thing you need to know going in is what type of faucet you have. Determining the number of handles should be easy, but determining the type of valve inside might require a glance at the owner's manual or simply starting the process and seeing what is inside.
The valve is what controls the flow of either the hot or cold supply line when using one of the handles on a double handled faucet.
