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

Water comes out pipe in bottom of shower not from shower head


There is a little rubber O-ring seal inside the connection from the shower hose to the shower unit, Check this is now missing and if it is you will have to find a replacement.

Ahhh... I bought an older condo and I have a bathtub/shower. The shower head is mounted on the wall and a switch at the faucet switches between the shower and the tub. The problem? When I switch from tub...


Normally the diverter in the spout does just that. It's basically just a little door you pull up to stop water from flowing out the outlet to bathtub, and it diverts water to shower head as it has no where else to go, as the door has been shut. Think of a "T", if you have water coming in, it's going to go out both openings if nothing stopping them, and they are at same level, but when you plug lower one, the water flows up and out the other. My guess is your getting very little pressure from head when it's still coming out at tub.
NOTE: before attempting this, make sure you incoming water supply to house is shut off at valve. Anyway, those spouts are usually held on by a set screw up under bottom side of faucet near back of it, (close to tub) there should be a small slot which will probably be an allen head or philips. You back that screw out, then twist and pull and it should slide off of copper pipe. If no indication under there of a set screw then there are also those that just thread on, which requires you just turn faucet counterclockwise to remove. Replace entire piece all in one, and be done with it. Most hardware or home centers will sell just that separate. Make sure you get the one with diverter. (handle that you pull.) Clean pipe well with steel wool if it's dirty and corroded before sliding new one on, and wipe some "vaseline" on pipe to help and protect "O" ring inside spout. Slide new on on all the way and tighten set screw on underside. If threaded, clean threads, add pipe dope or teflon tape and thread it on until aligned and tight. Good Luck.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

Connected shower head to hose and the hose connection to shower head leaks back toward line. There is a white end over the inside of the end of the hose. I believe this restriction is causing the line to...


I understand that the white vac breaker end should be connected to the valve not the hand shower. FYI a little leak from this connection when the water is switched off is normal.

Kohler shower hose leak


If the problem is solely because of the rubber washer with screen you can buy any cheap replica hose and use the washer that comes with it. If the issue goes away you are done. If not, switch heads and see if the issue follows the head. If it does then there would be a crack in the head at the connection. If neither solves the issue then you must buy a new hose.

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.
