My shower wand puts out extra hot water into the mix after switching back on. I figured that the hot water was at higher pressure than the cold due to the one way valve at the tank inlet and pushed the cold back down the pipe..

I did that once when stepping from the swim platform to a floating dock that was higher than I expected. I was carrying the puppy and threw her onto the dock (not on purpose, it just happened). She thought it was a game. I did not.

I caught myself on the dock and swim platform so I only got wet up to my waist but I had cuts and bruises and was sore for a week or so.

Had that same problem. Added 2 check valves and an expansion tank to solve the problem when I put the tempering valve in. use to get hot water from both the hot and cold lines until the water pump cycled once. When the hot water heats up, it expands (like the coolant in the engine) and pushes hot water back into the pressure tank.

In my defense I was to busy laughing and trying not to spill my beer to put the camera down.

I have a 20 gallon Torrid, it's been in the boat 6 years. It has performed fine. No problems.

We had a Torrid 10 gallon horizontal water heater on our boat for nine years before it died. We killed it by not reading the manual. We lived on RO water and never replaced the anode. Their manual is very specific. I think they are a quality built, glass lined water heater and fairly priced.

A normal water system installation would have included a check valve to prevent that. Sometimes, the check valve is built into the water heater connector.

If there isn't either an air space in the top of the water heater or an expansion tank, the over temperature / pressure relief valve will burp off. The check valve without an expansion tank is often sited as a cause for the relief valve burping. Using the water heater as the expansion tank is a poor design.

My Torrid is 36 3/4 yrs old and going strong. Hardly ever gets turned off. Heats the ER in the winter months. I don't know what size, as I have never had to look at it.
