Rich, a few clarification are needed here... 1. Are you saying you don't get ANY hot water or it just isn't coming very quickly? 2. Did you do the initial set up or did you have it done for you? 3. How did you make the plumbing connections, quick connects like "Shark-bite" or similar, solder or compression etc.? Depending on the answer to these I should be able to help you.
