I have an older gas water heater, the problem is the water does not get very hot even after adjusting the temp. gauge on the water heater. Question is when do you know it needs to be replaced and does replacing a gas water heater require alot of expertise? I'm pretty handy so far, I'd like to do it myself. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank You

If the tank isn't leaking, you should be able to flush the water heater and repair it, instead of replacing it.
For an illustrated how-to, just follow the threads of this plumbing-to-water heaters link: http://www.bhglive.com/homeimp/ .
Good Luck!
