I know it's a longshot, but I've seen miracles performed here before. Does anybody happen to know of an "instant hot water dispenser" (similar to the ones shown here), but are mounted to the backsplash above the sink instead of in the counter-top itself? I know that it would probably be possible to rig up something wall-mounted on my own using a standard counter-mounted version, but would rather pay for something ready to go out of the box. thank you.
Our water heater has started making some noises, and it's 13-14 years old, so probably time to think about replacing it. Unfortunately, it looks like the brand (American Water Heater Company) may have taken a turn for the worse; all the reviews I find online are exceedingly negative, mostly regarding faulty parts and terrible customer service. This is a basic electric water heater and we'd like to replace it with the same sort, since it works well for us. What are the best companies to buy from?
My gas hot water heater's pilot light has been going out regularly. I replaced the thermocouple in an effort to solve the problem, but I seem to have botched it: Not only does the pilot light still go out after the tank is heated, but now the gas continues to flow after the pilot goes out.

Master bathroom shower takes FOREVER to get hot water. The hot water heater is outside, less than fifteen feet from the actual shower. Other faucets in the house are much farther away (up to 30-40 feet away) never fail to get us hot water in less than 15-30sec. What gives? How do I fix it? [more inside]

My current water heater is about 14 years old now, and I'm looking to replace it with a traditional 'tanked' water heater (I'm not going to be in this house long to justify a tankless unit). For the most part I'm only looking to heat water for two people, and I'm thinking a 40 gallon tank with a large burner will be sufficient. Does anyone have any suggestions or good resources for comparison?
