Polaris Water Heater - Fluctuating Hot and Cold

Mcamphr Member Posts: 1
I have a 15yr old Polaris 30gallon High Efficiency Gas Water heater - been a great unit maybe replaced the ignitor five times and the ignition controller once. This morning I notice I had a bit of cold water in my shower and then it went to hot currently seems to be OK but others in the household have reported running out of hot water in a relatively short shower (5 mins) The LED lights are not flashing on the front - is there somewhere else to check for a fault indicator?

    Is it possible the DIP tube inside is cracked or melted? This would be on the cold side of the water heater....
