I have no idea. The plumbingforums.com has a section on water heaters though. It's been a bit quiet over there as of late.

I unwrapped my ankles this morning because the wrap was staring to irritate my skin. Left ankle looks good, just a little tenderness in the joint and I have to be careful when walking on it. Bruising is so mild it doesn't show up in pictures. Right ankle has a nasty scrape on top that is more sore than the sprain although the sprain looks uglier.

I've since put some cause over it and put a copper wear ankle support on the right foot. My abdominal muscles are sore, probably from the way I twisted when I fell, and my back is a little tender, but I can still move freely-- I just feel it when I do. Took some Ibuprofen liquid gels to reduce inflammation.
Note to self, clean toes and toenails. LOL.

It's not nearly as bad as when I busted my left ankle back in 2008. It took 2 years for me to be able to walk normally again and it still gives me some trouble to this day. I've got a permanent lump where the tendon pulled away. It didn't help that I had to be on my feet a lot more back then.

This time, I'm able to rest a little bit more since I don't have as busy of a schedule. I know they could be a lot worse, so I'm glad. I think having sturdy leg bones and thick ankles helped.

I'm not the one having the hot water problem this time, but I do need to get a whole house water filter.
