Dip Tube

 

Dip tube water heater

The dip tube is the part of the water heater that feeds cold water into the tank. Constructed of a high temperature plastic, the dip tube extends down to the bottom of the tank near the source of heat. Placement of the dip tube can be very important is reducing the amount of scale built up inside of the tank. Some dip tubes will have a curved end to help flush out sediment from the bottom of the tank.
