Some? Or all? Makes a differnece.

Some: Common feed line to those fixtures affected has a partially closed/corroded/broken valve/device on that line. Trace line, identify malfunction, replace or eliminate.

All: As above, *OR* very likely that outlet of HWT is corroded inside tank. Cut outlet/hot pipe, poke a screwdriver into the opening and clear blockage. Reasemble + test.

Hot Water Pressure from taps


Hard water deposits from the water heater in the supply lines to the faucets. Sounds like your water heater needs to be cleaned out -- not just drained of water. You need to get inside and clear out the deposits in the bottom of the tank. You also need to remove the hot water supply lines to your faucets and see of you can get the lines to run free from the deposits -AFTER you clean out the water heater. Remove the drain -put on a 3/4 in. ball valve for the drain and a hose bibb on that - you can hook up a 5/8 - or 3/4 inch hose to get the particles out of the drain of the water tank. You may have to blow back the water line, from the faucets, the hot water lines- to get the deposits out of the water lines. You also may have to blow out the faucets with the water line disconnected to clear the calcium out of the hot side of the faucet.

I have low hot water pressure on new Roman tub faucets. The cold has lots of pressure. I removed the aerator. before turning on the water so I would not get crud in the screen. The pressure is better when...


There are two possible problems:

1) The crud you don't want in aerator can get stuck in elbows and shut-off valves.
Open following link for steps
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

2) Crossover. If single-handled faucet has bad cartridge, or check valve is bad, these things can cause hot water not to flow.
Generally however if the pressure is still good, the issue is most likely #1 above.

Looking for tank psi trying to get better water psi out of the shower and taps


Every faucet and shower have a water saving restricter in them. Remove them from the shower head and end of the faucets.
They are about the size of a dime and with about 1/8" hole in them in which water flows out. So the flow is getting restricted from 1/2' flow to this giving you a water saving about a 1.5 gpm.

Below is some more information for the web site please check it out for further help.
http://www.inspectapedia.com/water/Poor-Water-Pressure-Diagnosis.htm
Poor water pressure just at certain plumbing fixtures? poor cold water pressure, hot water pressure, or both hot and cold water pressure or flow that is observed just at some plumbing fixtures in a building while flow and quantity are good at others suggests that the water flow or pressure problems are local to certain runs of supply piping or to the specific fixtures. Check the following first:
  1. Clogged aerator or strainer on sink faucets - clogging by dirt, debris, corrosion, can significantly reduce both hot and cold water flow at a sink where the strainer needs cleaning or replacement. Unscrew the strainer from the faucet and turn on the water - if the fixture pressure or flow is much better you've probably found the problem.

    Look at the aerator/strainer: inspect it, clean it, perhaps soaking it overnight in vinegar to remove corrosion and mineral build-up, or just install a new aerator/strainer.

Pulsating water and poor hot water pressure


Based on your description it sounds like the pressure balancing valve could be gunked up with particulate from your well or just worn out. If your water is not filtered to that shower I would lean more towards particulate. Try to remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store for a match-up since Delta makes several cartridges and you want to get it right the first time.

No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet


Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

We began replaceing our galvanized pipes. Since


The problem is that when you disturb the galv. pipes, the gunk inside breaks loose, and travels to the faucets, gets stuck, and limits the volume of water that comes out.
If possible open the lines at the service valves, and force water through the spigot to fluch out the faucet. The service value could also be partially clogged, keep that in mind

''poor pressure hot water only on new 531 series''


If you remove the supply line from the faucet and open the valve into a bucket, do you have adequate pressure? If you do, you will need to remove the hot water stem to see if something washed up into the faucet when you first turned the water on.
