    Depends on a lot of things, but yes, can extend your riding range 10-15 degrees before you change to a boot or stop riding due to cold feet. I wear sandals most of the year, and I like sandals...

    Gas or electric ? I'm not a plumber but in my experience failure of electric tanks are internals and rarely the tank itself unless extremely old or neglected. You can do a lot by cleaning the tank...
