Question about Plumbing
Renovated kitchen. Kitchen installer Installed FF-1800,
Now it takes 5 minutes to get hot water and there is no pressure.
Thought it was a system pressure problem.
Building mechanics said there was pressure and immediate hot water up to the FF-1800.
Said that it was a valve problem with the faucet.
Sometimes there is a lot of sediment released into the pipes (particularly hot water) when water lines are shut down and restarted as part of a remodel process.
Particularly with a pressure balanced faucet this can create all types of symptoms including those you describe...
Before you go to any expensive lengths, check any intake screens or strainers, both on the faucet and in the other components of the system. A lot of the time this will solve the problem...
