    sorry I thought i was searching. My problem is since they hooked up the water we have no pressure. Had no problems before with pressure but since we got a new mobile home this heater doesn't have pressure. if we try to do two things like fluch toilet and turn on sink the water from the sink dribbles out even if it is on all the way.

What's your question?Water pressure from tap is low.Can I pour water directly into the water storage tank?


Yes, water usually goes directly into the tank from the water inlet.
If the pressure is low going in, the pressure will be low coming out.

I have a new pressure switch but still have low water pressure


The pressure switch shouldn't be reducing pressure unless it is smaller that the water pipe. Pressure switches in water heaters are a safety device that activate when pressure builds up above a pre-defined limit. I'm guessing that the most probable cause of low water pressure is either not enough head into the water heater (this is the height of water pipe) or not enough mains pressure. Your best bet is probably to install an inline circulation pump with a flow sensor. This will automatically detect that water is being used and turn on to boost water pressure.

I have a problem with low hot water pressure can you help would an elec shower help


1) If possible, it is Best to solve pressure problem before installing new shower.

2) If the cold water has good pressure, then Electric shower could fix problem ... but shower would have to be connected to the cold water line and not the hot.

3) Seems the expense of adding a electric shower would be greater than having plumber fix low hot water pressure.
Assuming you have access to plumbing pipes, and this is not apartment building.

Water pressure decreases as the water runs


Probably a clog in galvanized pipe.
Expansion tank is not whole-house pressure regulating tank. It is localized protection for plumbing exposed to high pressure caused by very hot water.
If you house has pressure regulating valve, then that can be a cause.
For low water pressure in household, the following link might help:

The water is luke warm and the pressure is lower than ususal.


We probably need more information to give a good answer.
You report 2 different problems occurring at once: Low pressure and Low temperature.
If this is tankless water heater, then Low pressure and Low temperature might be related, and you probably need a service technician to diagnose and repair cause.

If this is tank-type water heater, look at label on side of tank for type and brand of heater.
Is it gas or electric water heater? Troubleshooting is totally different for each.

Is water pressure pressure low on just the hot side faucet, or is cold side faucet affected too?
Are all hot faucets affected by low pressure?
If you have a dual handle faucet, open hot side only and check if hot water that comes out is hot as normal.
This will say if problem is pressure or temperature.
Tank-type water heater usually won't have both these problems occur at one time, but water heaters work in funny ways sometimes.

Add a comment to this post, or re-post your question with details so the experts can give a solid answer and not guess.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
