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.

Need help with Bosch hydropower 13h tankless hot water system


when you turn on the hot water tap there is a pressure switch in the line that sends a signal to a gas solenoid to pass the gas and at the same time to the pizo to start the flame
I would have that pressure switched checked as it may be sticking ( internal contamination) or have dirty corroded points
as gas is involved I would suggest a gas technician do the jib
when you turn off the tap, that pressure switch is shut off so the gas is turned off at the solenoid and the pizo is stopped.

No hot water from kitchen tap


The hot side of the faucet is most likely plugged with something that came up thru the water system. The average thankless waterheater requires at least 1/2 to 3/4 gpm flow rate for the unit to sense flow and turn on. If there is not enough flow it will not fire and heat the water. Not sure about this particular unit but a few require at least one full gallon per minute flow. So chances are that if you fix the faucet, you fix the hot water issue at the same time

Pressure gauge reading zero


Hello Mark
First of all turn on a hot water tap and keep it running whilst you check to see if your boiler is firing up, if it is not then try to restart it, you should hear the flame if its running, turn your tap off then just stand by the boiler for a few minutes to see if the pressure gauge starts to rise, if it doesn't rise you will never get any hot water, you will have to add some pressure to about 1 and a half on the dial, to do that is simply turn on the water valve in the bottom of your boiler and watch your pressure gauge rise to about 1 and a half then firmly turn it off again, it looks like a small tap like the one at the back of your washing machine pipe, it's ok you will hear the water rushing in, now with your gauge at about 1 and a half and your boiler running your water will get hot

Ask the plumber who did the mods. to come a check that he hasn't crossed a hot/cold pipe. Really sounds like he has, this would cause hot water to mix with cold. Is the water hotter further away from where he did his work? This would be a clue. Easy way to check is to turn off the water to the hot water system, should be a valve on the middle pipe going in to the heater. This should turn off all water to all your hot taps. If you still have water at any hot tap or shower then the pipes have been crossed.

Sounds like the by-pass valve diaphragm. This valve detects that hot water is being drawn off at the tap and then diverts the mains input water across the heat exchanger. Very often it's the diaphragm inside the valve which is punctured or split.This can be replaced [depending on model] if you take apart the valve
. Remove the front panel and lower the control panel.The valve is at the bottom left of the boiler
Suggest turning off the service taps to the two heating pipes and the cold mains inlet pipes before tackling the valve

HOT WATER WON'T FILL TUB


most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.

Oasis water cooler taps started dripping


if the cooler is a hot and cold, even if its a cook and cold, the cooler always needs to be cleaned and maintained, not only on the inside but on the outside, as the cooler is used calcium builds up over time. that is why your taps are leaking, there is a build up in the taps, therefor the taps are not sealing properly and letting some water thru. i say take the taps out and clean them with vinegar.
the second thing u can do is the taps do come apart into smaller peices once u disconnect them from the cooler. take the taps apart and find the spring located within it, stretch the spring and than reconnect the peices together than reconnect to the water cooler.
