There is a little cap on the hot and cold side above the shut off valves, turn the water off at these valve and take the caps off there are filters in there clean them off and reinstall them that should take care of the problem, you might want to flush the tank while your at it hook a hose to the hot side connector and run it out side or to a sump pump then turn on the cold water and flush it out you can also reverse this procedure by doing it on the cold side

When I use the shower, the unit defaults to level I heating. Why is water not hot enough?


it probably has an anti-scald control in the shower line that lets cold water in to prevent burns
If so that unit has a wax bulb that sometimes fails and the default fail setting is cool water
have a plumber check it out

If you have single handle facute one bad cartridge in the system may be acting like a mixing valve and allowing cold water to mix with hot not allowing water to get hot enough .

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.

I have to turn the hot water tap on full open to get hot water


Type of water heater is unknown
If you have single-handled faucet the faucet cartridge might be bad.
If you have recirculation system, then check valve might be bad.

I have exactly the same problem


you need to change the cartridge, it is a temp control and is going bad so it keeps you from burning yourself it is like a mixing valve and is givng more cold water, that way you don;t get burned,,

Low pressure on hot water taps and showers


Many states building codes require a pressure regulator and expansion tank for hot water heater installation. Check the pressure regulator if you have one as this would only affect the hot water pressure. Adjust or replace. Rap the expansion tank like knocking hard on a door. Hollow sound is good. Dull thud means it needs to be replaced as it is filled with water.
