Why loosing pressure very fast when I open the hot water tap?

I would put a pressure gauge on the supply line coming from the source be it a public water system or a well. If your on a well your pressure tank is waterlogged or defunct. If you have constant pressure from the source and your hot water is the only water losing pressure I would think the water heater is old it may be limed up on both income and outgoing h2o.

My makita model 5200 air compressor regulator will not adjust pressure--replaced with a new one-- no!!

you would need a separate regulator to regulate outgoing pressure and you have only an on/off reguastor.

Are you meaning that you cannot adjust the regulator to change the pressure output?

I have a hotpoint hot water heater it's about 6 years old. When I turn the hot water on it runs very slowly the water pressure is very low and it's like this throughout the house how do I fix this problem...

You have clog in the water line.
Since all hot water pipes are involved, clog is probably near water heater.

Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that threads onto hose connection.

Check outdoor pressure for baseline pressure in your home.
Turn off electricity to hot water heater for an hour or two so there is not scalding water.
Open drain valve on water heater to see if water heater is clogged with sediment.

Put pressure gauge on drain valve and compare with outside pressure.
Open hot water spigot on bathtub and see if tank pressure drops ... if tank pressure drops significantly with bathtub spigot on, then clog is on incoming cold water before tank, and could be on outgoing hot water pipes too.
If tank pressure stays about the same, then clog is on outgoing hot water pipes.

Clog can be sediment caught in cold water shut off valve located above tank. Open and close valve and test pressure again. Take apart incoming cold water pipes above tank and check for sediment. Replace valve. Look at condition of cold water nipple on top of tank.

Sediment caught at hot water elbow near tank.
Sediment can fill up old pipes. Take apart hot water pipes above water heater and see condition.
Look at condition of hot water nipple on top of tank.
You may have to take apart pipes up to first or second elbow.

Pipes can decay at joint where copper pipe connects to galvanized pipe. Check for copper to galvanized connections on cold or hot pipes and replace section of galvanized pipe. Copper pipe will probably be good, the galvanized pipe will deteriorate. Replace copper-to-galvanized joint with 3/4" non-conducting union from hardware store

I don't seem to have the pressure I had when I ferst got it

There are many possibilities. If you have an adjustable nozzle, be sure it is not in the "low" pressur mode. Second make sure screen where you connect garden hose is not clogged. The remaining items are a bit more complicated.If it is pulsating more that normal, you may have debris in one of the check valves. These pumps have 6 check valves. Three incoming three outgoing. If one of these doesn't close you loose 1/3 capacity. Another possibility is the packing on the pistons is worn not building enough pressure. Also the pressure regulator can be leaking keeping it from building pressure. Unless you're confident you can work on this, I wouldn't open the pump. Repair kits are not expensive that include wear items, but if you damage a pump they start at about 100.00 If you can get any numbers off the pump you can most likely find parts at

My 25 litre air compressor builds up to 120 psi,but dont seem to release maximum pressure

You should have two pressure gauges. One will tell you the tank pressure and the other is the outgoing pressure. There should be a plastic knob that you can pull out and turn clockwise to increase or counterclockwise to decrease. Also try a different hose as there may be some debris in the hose.
Hope this helps

2001 F350 7.3L Diesel won't start

I take it you have a crank no start issue, the fuel is injected by high pressure oil, no oil pressure no start, there are 2 oil pumps, low lube pressure and high injection control pressure (ICP) the injection system is hydraulic controls electric actuated fuel injection, if when you crank the engine over and the oil pressure guage goes up base pressure is ok, then its high pressure or the best thing I can say is pull codes and that can give me a good direction to send you in, there are many things that can cause that problem, if the fuel heater shorts out, the pcm and it are on the same 30amp circuit causin the same problem and still you would have proper fuel pressure readings.
