    Actually here code requires a 120 setting on the tank... OR the valve... Some plumbers do both. Its a pretty new requirement here (less than 5 years.)

    But I just open my heater up and change it so it gets hot like its supposed to... I hate not being able to get HOT water when I want it. Being as I do all my own plumbing, electrical, construction, etc.. its not an issue for me.

    I also HATE legislation that comes about because people are unwilling to take responsibility for themselves.

    agreed, or because of frivilous law suits such as the infamous mcdonald coffee incident.

    Usually the tank has a access panel near the top held on with a couple screws...

    If you remove it there's typically a thermostatic adjustment behind it... Just set it to the higher temp.

    Then replace the panel.

    Nothing at all wrong with purple hammocks. I have a little experience with them.
