SOURCE: 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.

look for a scald safety screw adjustment. Remove the handle, and it is underneath. this is for safety of young children, and is factory set.

SOURCE: Hot water tap - no pressure and splutters

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.

T&S is popular brand. Do you have a piece of old washer stuck inside valve. Flush it out.

Can I clean the valve to remove sediment?


when this problem presents I consider that the problem is in the weak tap stopper /seat

I have a Vaillant Combi boiler, recently serviced by British Gas, given all clear. Problem we are having is the downstairs hot water tap it is a mixer tap, the cold water is fine but the hot water is


Boilers are inherently dangerous for the average DIY for so many reasons, contact British Gas and have them come back and fix it, tell them it was fine before the "service". They may simply have a control valve shut off.

You need to have the flow switch looked at. The low flow of the water to the lavs and the kitchen sink, they all have as small demand next to t bath or shower,

You can use a water hammer arrestor and hook it up to old washing machine hot valve by use of a standard washer hose. This type of aresstor is basically. a shock absorber. You will needtonget pipe adapters to go from hose thread to pipe thread.If you can mount the hammer arressror higher then the washer valve. Hook everything up and turn old hot water valve back on. This shoulg take care of your problem. Thank you.

I have hot water slow flow, would fitting a new mixer tap help.


Hello,

This could be a hard water build up. Try to remove sink, clean out thoroughly, and then should flow normally :)

When I turn on the cold water tap in the Bathroom Sink the water comes out in a very slow drip or not at all, the CW bath tap is ok


Confirm that the shut-off valve under the sink is open all the way. If it is, then close it and remove the cold water tap. If this is a single handle tap you will of course have to turn off the hot water shut off under the sink too.
With the tap removed and a bucket and towel handy, open the cold water shutoff just a little bit. If water comes rushing out, the problem is obviously with the tap. You may be able to clean or repair it, or you may have to replace it.

Under sink water heater no flow of hot water from it


basically the principle of the heater is water flows into a internal tank and is heated by an element. You open a hot tap and the mains cold water forces the hot out and replaces it inside the heater.As you have a flow problem i can only suggest you may have some kind of restriction or blockage in the cold water supply at the water heater or from the hot supply from the heater.If you live in an area where lime content is high then this can calcify when heated.If you can, isolate the water supply and electrical supply and check the pipework for blockage.Also investigate your hot tap as this may be the fault. Good Luck
