How can I improve the hot water supply in my house?

It takes several minutes for the hot water in my house to reach the kitchen faucet (which is the furthest away from the hot water heater). How can I improve this situation? Should I add a second tank or a circulation loop? Thanks in advance.

Is my contractor responsible for accidental flooding?

Repairing water damage in a second floor laundry room

We had some water damage in our home's second floor laundry room because the drip pan, which sits under the W & D overflowed. The drain line in the drip pan failed somehow, so after the water filled up the drip pan, it overflowed, eventually soaking through to the lower level. Do I need to replace sheetrock, plywood, or insulation that got wet, but is now dry? Also, what are my options for a floor drain in the laundry room to prevent this from happening again? Thanks for your time.

Finding the source of drain pipe's flow

There is a copper drain pipe on my house which lately has water running through it. It sits next to the PVC drain pipe that connects to the house's A/C units, but I don't know what it is connected to? This past summer there was only a sporadic drip from this unidentified line, but now it is constantly flowing water. Any ideas?
