I live in an apartment and my hot water only runs for about 30 seconds then shuts off.?
I live in an apartment and my hot water only runs for about 30 seconds then shuts off. If I turn the tap off and back on it gets hot again for another 30 seconds. Its an extremely annoying cycle to turn it on/off every 30 seconds. Shy is this happening?

By your description, it sounds to me that you have an electric water heater. An electric water heater has two heating elements in it. With it cycling so short as it is, this is a symptom that one of the heating elements has failed. Your apartment manager or the maintenance department should be contacted.Source(s): retired electrician

Sounds like an on demand system that is not working well. Call your landlord.

Better ask the landlord.
