If the pressure is the same for both hot and cold. Then most of the time it could be just a blocked Screen/Aerator. Unscrew it and see if the pressure has improved. If so the replace it! Lowe's or Home Depot have them.

How do I get more water pressure from my american standard shower set


Hi Fran:
Most shower faucets now are equipped with flow restrictors. It is possible with some units to remove the flow restrictor plate from the shower nozzle. It has to be dis-assembled to do that.
Regarding the lack of hot water, that would usually be a different problem and will be related to the hot water source.
Hope this helps.

I have bought several shower heads as the spray pressure is low but none have helped. The pressure is ok on low setting on half heat but too cold. On full heat its too hot on min setting. Help plz ?


The problem is that all shower heads sold now have to be low water volume. You can take the restrictor out and see if that helps. Look for a blue or white plug type insert in the fixture that has a slot on it. Pull it out and you should be good.

My water pressure is very low from the original install is there a way to adjust the faucet to allow a better pressure flow


Your issue could be caused by the water restrictor in the shower head. To know for sure, remove the shower head and then turn the water on.

Very tough water restrictions have manufacturers using plastic water restrictors in the shower heads.

Although you are not supose to, some shower heads can be taken apart to modify, or remove the restrictor.

I hope this helps you.

Same problem with rinnai V1200.starts ok and as soon as you want to ajust cold water,the hot water line gets cold.**** all design


These units need water flow/pressure to work. If you use a mixer to get the right temperature as soon as you try to increase cold to make the water colder you unfortunately reduce the hot flow. Fairly complicated fault to explain, all continuous flow units have the same flaw. Solution is to try and increase flow and the best way is to take any water filters or restrictors out of your tapware. Most taps have the located in the end of the spout. Unscrew the end and remove any restrictors. Shower roses are a bit more tricky to find. This fixes 99% of these problems.

It turns on ,starts to get warm.Then turns off


Sounds like you have a problem with water flow. Since your ground water is warmer in the summer, you mix less hot and more cold in order to get the same warm temperature. If your hot water flow gets low enough, your tankless will start to "short cycle" in order to prevent scalding. Use one of these three methods to increase your water flow at the shower:

1) Clean your shower head and descale
2) Widen the hole in the showerhead's flow restrictor
3) Remove your flow restrictor entirely

Good luck!

Blanco 2.2 GPM Faucet/Side Spray#157-013ST Via Google NO PRESSUR


Try unscrewing the aerator and cleaning the screen that you'll find there. If that doesn't work then you should check the pressure under the sink by removing the cold water hose from the cutoff valve (turn it off 1st!). If the pressure there is good then try removing and cleaning the cartridge by soaking it overnight in white vinegar or consider replacing the whole faucet if it's old. You can also call Blanco and see what they'll do for you as it has a "Limited Lifetime Warranty." If the pressure at the cutoff is low it's time to call a plumber!

Sometimes the hot water just goes cold


Here are a couple things to look for:

1) flashing burner light - a flashing burner light indicates the unit is getting an error code
common error codes:
A. continuous flashing - ignition failure or abnormal combustion; look for visible water in the machine indicating a leak, check gas pressure, debris or buildup on flame rod/igniter plug, or clean unit with compressed air
B. 3 flashes - error 16, abnormal outlet water temperature; typically this code indicates you'll need to descale you unit
C. 4 or 5 flashes - exotic error codes; you should contact Noritz technical support to deal with these codes

2. If there is no flashing code, try increasing the hot water flow. In the summer time you typically use less hot water; this can result in intermittent operation of your tankless heater. Increase water flow by either: A. cleaning your showerhead and removing scale deposits B. widening your flow restrictor C. Remove your flow restrictor in the showerhead

3.If none of these resolves your problem, you probably have debris in your flow sensor. Contact Noritz technical support for a walkthrough on removing debris from a flow sensor.
