Connect a hose from the cold tap to the hot and turn on hot tap then turn on cold tap slowly and watch for air bubbles in hot tank header if you have one, but 30 seconds should be enough. turn both taps off then try hot tap for flow, it should have cleared the air lock. You have not stated what type of system you have or if it is a pressurised system. my fix is for the old type copper cylinder and header tank system and not for a pressurised system that are mains pressure fed..

The hot water pressure from the tap in my tub is very low however the kitchen and laundry tub ones are still fine. What can I do to fix it?

It sounds like the valve it self needs to be replaced . They will become corroded if in an older house or if you have hard water or well water with a lot of minerals in it.

Hot water immersion tank. Electric Now there is chugging on coldfill after I turned off mains supply and ran hot water taps to drain off supply to fix a tap

If you turned the electric off before draining, Air gets into the system. It will sound funny untill all the trapped air gets "washed" out of the system. If the electric was left on when refilled, you may have a steam generating situation, causing the chugging.

No hot water from kitchen tap

The hot side of the faucet is most likely plugged with something that came up thru the water system. The average thankless waterheater requires at least 1/2 to 3/4 gpm flow rate for the unit to sense flow and turn on. If there is not enough flow it will not fire and heat the water. Not sure about this particular unit but a few require at least one full gallon per minute flow. So chances are that if you fix the faucet, you fix the hot water issue at the same time

The hot water tap in the kitchen broke. We turned the hot water off coming out of the tank. The stop **** has been reopened. The tap has been repaired but we cant get any water through

There may be some debris in the tap, left over from the old one. Turn the water OFF again, remove the new tap and look for any debris that may be clogging the outlet. Also. make sure the new tap is seated properly and is identical to the old one you had to remove.

Hope this helped to solve your problem, Eddie. Please be kind enough to rate my response. Thanks!

My kids just bought an older home w/a rinnai continuum nc-45-4us. right now their house phone isn't installed, so they can't phone, but they can't turn on hot water. any suggestions

Run through the basic checks
  • Power lead from the heater plugged in a socket turned on.
  • Gas on to house
  • All valves below heater in on position.
  • If they have controllers in the house turn on (key pads marked with Rinnai logo in kitchen or bathrooms usually)
There is a turbine that spins in the heater when a hot tap is run. If the heater has been sat for some time not operating the turbine might have stuck. Run the hot tap and keep it running, using a hammer give the centre pipe connection under the heater a firm hit a few times(not too hard). This might unstick the turbine.

most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.
