Installed a new tub faucet and I have no water coming out of it


When you turned off the water to remove the old faucet did you have to turn off the water to the whole house or was there cut off valves going to the tub. Did you install cut off valves for the tub and forgot to turn them back on before trying the new faucet. What type of faucet did you install? Whats the make and model. Its possible something got caught/dropped in the pipe when you were installing the new faucet and is now blocking the flow of water.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

Have a pegasus shower faucet an it knocs every time you turn the hot water on in any part of the hause


Sounds as if you have air in the pipes.
To solve this you will need a piece of hose that will fit over the ends of your hot and cold faucets in the kitchen (or other lowest faucets in the house) - fix it on tightly with hose clips and open both faucets fully. Wait 5 minutes or so before turning off hot water faucet first.
If that hasn't cleared it repeat the process but after 5 minutes turn on your shower faucet and see if it splutters as the air is forced out. You may have to do this with other faucets in the house too. Close each one off once the water runs evenly without air in it.
If that doesn't work you will need to drain your hot water system down completely. Turn off water supply at the hot water cylinder (or rising main if you have a tank-less system) and open all faucets until water stops flowing. Close each faucet about 2/3rds then turn on water supply again. Wait for each faucet to get a slow but steady flow. Going round each faucet in turn gradually open each on a little bit more until all are running fast and even and all the air has spurted out. Now go round each faucet in turn closing each one down a bit at a time until they are only dribbling a small amount. Turn all faucets off.

Sour smelling/ tasting water from bathroom faucet when not used for several hours. Smells like traces in water bottles, which I can bleach or wash in dishwasher. How do I clean possible bacteria from a...


Assuming the problem is right there at the faucet, and not further upstream (which you could verify by taking a little water from the tub faucet), perhaps you could try this--- turn off the water supply then remove the flexible water supply lines from the faucet underneath the sink. These are usually not too hard to remove from the faucet with a basin wrench (less than $10). If it's easy, remove the other end of the flexible water supply lines too. Maybe you should replace these. Otherwise, get the water out of those flexible line, then put some bleach into them. Reconnect to the faucet. Leave the faucet turned off, and turn the water supply back on. Then very slightly turn on the faucet to allow the air out, then turn it off. Leave the bleach to soak for a while (maybe 30 minutes) then flush plenty of water through it. If the smell comes back, there is probably something organic stuck in the faucet and you will have to disassemble or replace it. Good luck.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

I just installed a blanco faucet with sprayer. Turned water back and then tried faucet but no water comes out. Help


Turn water back off loosen supply lines from faucet turn water back on slowly with supply lines draining into bucket so as to flush them out.If water flowed ok reattach lines to faucet turn both angle stops on full and turn faucet on pivoting handle in all directions.If it still doesn't work take the sprayer line loose from the spout try turning the faucet on again with the line in a bucket. By now you have narrowed it down and the problem should be obvious.Also make sure a shipping plug was not left in line. Hope this helps

if this is the faucet in picture, turn off water, pull out cartridge and inspect for any debris in cartridge or valve body, if not, turn on hot water to see if water is getting through valve body. May have kinked line or debris from or in angle stop line.

Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet


It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
