This is a very common problem with water heaters. The problem is in the bottom electronics. A water heater has two elements, top(master) and bottom (slave). The bottom element will not turn on until the top element reaches temperature. After the top element reaches temperature, the bottomelement should heat the bottom of the the tank. If the bottom electronics are faulty, you will only have half a tank of hot water (the top half). Call Prestige Plumbing & Backflow Services, your local Deland Plumber to determine if this is your situation.
First, check the electrical breakers. Next, check the reset button on the top thermostat. If neither of these steps solve the problem, then you have a bad thermostat or bad top element. A water heater has top and bottom electronics. The top is the master and the bottom is the slave. If the master (top) never reaches temperature then it will never supply power to the bottom element.
