Customer Question
I have a home in...
I have a home in MS and it is on a slab. I have a tankless water heater on one side of my house. The house is approx 2 years old. I have had to do a couple things already in the house due to piss poor workmanship! Please excuse my language and it difficult to find someone down here you can trust. Currently when I turn my cold water on in house or outside, it never gets colder than luke warm. can someone advise?
