SOURCE: water in shower not very hot

It could be possible you require more water volume, so take off both panels on youur water heater and check what temp. they are at.
I know I discovered the hard way there are 2 heaters and 1 of mine was low,good luke.

SOURCE: Insufficient hot water from Gledhill pulsacoil 2000

changing the shower head will not do anything.to do what you want,you would need more BTU's or a bigger unit to supply more water,someone may be hogging the water also.

SOURCE: pulsating water and poor hot water pressure

Based on your description it sounds like the pressure balancing valve could be gunked up with particulate from your well or just worn out. If your water is not filtered to that shower I would lean more towards particulate. Try to remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store for a match-up since Delta makes several cartridges and you want to get it right the first time.

How can I increase the hot water pressure in my home?


Cold water pressure is what give you your hot water pressure so they should be equal but if you have a restriction on the hot side such as a valve not opening on the hot side or not opening all the way then you will have less pressure or the pipe work on the hot side is not proper. Hard to say but check the valve on top of the hot water heater

My water heater heats everything except my lower shower


Let's walk our way thru this one: I assume you have an upstairs shower, and a downstairs shower?-- Are you able to follow the pipes coming out of the Hot Water Heater?-- Can you trace where the pipes to the upstairs shower go?-- And what about the pipes to the lower shower? -- Do they BOTH come off the HOT water pipes coming out of the top of the HW Heater?
A big help in tracing pipes, is by having the hot water run in the Shower that is getting HOT water-- Feel the HOT! pipe?-- Now-- shut that water off, and go to the lower shower-- When it is running, can you hear water flowing out of the pipes at the top of the Hot Water Tanks?-- or do you feel Cold water moving-- Can you travels where it is flowing from? Get back with me, and tell me what you are feeling, and hearing-- Mack B

One of my showers (witch is only 5 feet from the hot water heater) dosnt get hot and turns compleatly cold in less than 3 min, But the sink in the same bathroom gets really hot. The kitchen sink gets...


Lets watch a video

The hot and cold being reversed is an easy fix. When he took the handle off and exposed the cartage the small stem in the middle there are two flat spots on the stem with the screw hole in it just take some pliers and turn the stem 180% you don't have to turn the water off for this. DON'T TAKE THE KEEPER OUT FOR THIS!
If cartage dosen't want to come out as mentioned in the video be ferm with it but don't get ruff. If the cartage was hard to get out it is a good idea to sand or clean the hole it came out of some very fine sand paper wraped around a pencel well do the trick. If you do sand use a squirt bottle and wash any debree out of the hole.

I have A whirlpool hot water heater I can get hot water downstairs but not upstairs through the shower and tub


Upstairs do you get hot water to your sink faucet. If you do this indicates to me that the temperature valve in your Shower & Tub may need to be adjusted.

For single handle please remove handle to gain access to dial that adjusts hot & cold water mixing.
Remember where it is and take it out and replace about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise and reinstall and try.

It is a plastic adjustment dial that will slide off after the handle is removed.

Trace lines if possible to assure correct pipe's are connected to valve.

I have the 2700es and the water upstairs gos hot then cold ,hot then cold and so on , what sould i be looking at?


The water temperature may be set too high, or try turning the hot water off and opening a hot water tap. If the water is still flowing out the hot water tap, there is a problem with a faucet (likely a shower valve). It could also be water pressure below 30 psi.
