Do you have your own hot water tank? or is there one serving many units? There is a 'dip tube' in hot water tanks, if it gets old it sometimes deteriorates and small parts of plastic get loose and will float around in the tank, if a piece finds it way up to the outlet then that might explain why you are getting the low water pressure. one wat to check is to twist off the aerotor on the end of your faucet, if there are any small pieces of white plastic then you will have to replace the dip tube and maybe even flush out the tank. it is also possible that a piece of plastic has traveled up the water line and it stuck in the faucet cartridge.

No hot water from tap

First, check whether you have hot water supply or not by checking other taps.
Second, check whether the hot water hose under the tap is intact.
Third, you may need to change the valve/cartridge of the tap.

We have a new Price Pfister 49 Series bathroom faucet set with two handles. Even with the hot water tap open full the water just dribbles out

If you have full pressure on the cold water side and low pressure on the hot side then you well need to remove and clean or replace the cartridge for the hot side. If you have low water pressure on both sides try removing the aerator and cleaning it.
If you need to replace the cartridge on the hot side do both sides while you at it.
Whenever you work on any faucet before you turn the water on remove the aerator and run the water for a few seconds then replace the aerator.

When water is turned on hot is okay but cold barely come on

Hi it sounds like the head inside the tap has worn, if it's a single tap then turn of the water supply, open the tap to ensure no water coming through then remove the head with a adjustable spanner turning anti-clockwise. take to a plumbers merchant and they will give you a replacement. There cheap enough. Put the new head back in and re-instate water supply. Turn on that tap to clear any air then your done. Thanks Paul.

Mixer tap makes a noise like a fog horn when cold water turned on

Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

Cold water tap not working, house heating not as strong.

Okay let's trouble shoot this problem. The Hot water issue may just be that your Temp. control is not set as high as it was before it was replaced. Find the control on the water heater and check the setting. You can adjust it hotter from there, but it is not recomended to set it all the way to HOT. Just increase it at small adjustments and see if the water gets hotter. The Cold Water Tap issue.....Turn off the Cold and Hot water supply lines to the faucet. Remove the Cold water tap. VERY SLOWLY TURN ON THE COLD WATER SUPPLY and see if you get water coming out of the line. If you get water, then your line is okay. Inspect the valve to see if there is any debris in or on it. Clean and reinstall both taps and turn back on the water. It should work. Now if you turn the water on SLOWLY when the Cold water tap is removed, and no water comes out, Then you know you have an issue with the line going to the cold water side. (Frozen Line, Debris in supply line valve, Broken or Leaking Water Line) I hope this assists you........Joe

Trouble to have hot water continiusly

hi there well it seems from what you have written you must of stopped the hot water at some point to remove the valve components & to replace them, from the small amount of info you have given I suspect its an air lock in the hot water supply pipe somewhere?

If this is the problem you might find its affecting the other hot taps possibly? if your able to narrow it down to a single appliance, then it could be localised.

Now the air lock can be removed if it s as we suggested. Do you have a wet & dry vacuum if so run the tap closest on the hot then put the wet vac around the tap & turn it on for a few secs being careful not to get scalding water on you? this will hopefully move the airlock & get you back in business?
If not then post some more info & I will see what i can do for you....good luck
