This can be easily remedied with an aquastat or any other homemade thermostat. You may want to be sure of what your getting into though. Most heater tanks are made of glass lined cast iron. I recommend new not used due to this fact. The glass wears away fairly quickly and the ports can be a point of rust intrusion.
Hot on left, cold on right, $^*t rolls downhill, and paydays on Friday. You're now an apprentice plumber.
