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.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

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 takes 30 sec to cover 10m from heater to tap


body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(/wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bottom; } You are talking about length of time to get hot water from water heater.What diameter pipe are you talking about? What type of faucet do you have?
1/2" pipe has inside diameter of .54" and holds 1.2 gallons per 100 feet
10 meters is 32 feet and holds .4 gallons
Average faucet puts out 2 gallons per minute, so 30 seconds you should get 1 gallon of water.
Put a bucket under faucet and check amount of water flow.

Assuming you draw just hot water from the faucet, then 30 seconds is slow for receiving hot water.
If you have single-handle faucet and raise handle straight up in middle, then you are drawing half hot and half cold, so it would take 30 seconds for hot to arrive.

If hot water is slow, the problem might be crossover.

or low water pressure due to clog in water line

Other problems could include clogged water filter, clogged water softener, defective pressure valve, and low water pressure.

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.

Need to turn on several different hot water sources to get my heater to fire up. My faucets are low flow, so for some reason the heater will not fire unless there is more demand. It is brand new out of...


When a tankless is installed, they are usually set up with a recirc. Theis keeps the water continuously heating to some degree.
When a tankless is installed into a home it has nothing to heat the water that is sitting in the pipe from its faucet to its heat source. Now as soon as you turn on the faucet, you have to let all that cold water run out until the newly heated water comes out from when you started the faucet.
You could measure the volume until heat and it will be pretty much the same every time for a given faucet.

The fact that your faucets are low flo is only part of the factor involving time it takes to get hot water. Another factor is volume. The diameter of your pipes makes a difference. You can remove the low flo restrictor from the faucet farthest away to speed up the process at least a little.
