Try replacing the water Filter also remove the airator on the end of the faucet and see if water comes out all the time. If it does clean the air rater by washing the sand out of it to do this flush it out in the revers direction of the screen. You may have to use a tooth pick to clean out the holes to allow water to flow. Also try hot watr side to see if it flows out there at all, if it does not then you need a new filter or you need a new screen on the air rater on the end of the faucet.

Ihave had Hiccups for two days and need a method of stopping so I can get some sleep


Hey there "Lanier" do you still have the Hiccups ? if so, I will tell you how to get rid of them in 30 seconds.

get a medium size glass (10-12oz) fill it to about 1" full from the top, now while standing up, drop your head down put the glass to your mouth so that your trying to drink off of the opposite side of the glass than you normally would, so that your chin is actually in the glass and so the bottom of the glass is going back towards your chest, now as you slowly bend forward from your waist, start drinking the water out of the glass, (its like your trying to take a drink in the opposite fashion that you normally would) . Now you might spill a little but its ok, you only need to drink a small amount of water, now when your bent over and have had a few swallows of water, keep your head bent down for 10 seconds or so and now stand back up and pour the rest of the water down the sink because your Hiccups are gone.

Here is why this works, (it's actually a biological plumbing thing) the " Hiccups " are nothing more than an air bubble in your digestive system, so by bending over and drinking the water in this fashion, it lets the water run into your system and the air bubble to escape over the top. ( BTW my dad taught me this trick in 1965 and I've cured a million cases of Hiccups, plus I've won a lot of money in the bars showing people how to do this ).

You can thank me later...

Air lock in hot water tap in kitchen. tap was left running, how do we fix?


connect a hose from the cold tap to the hot and turn on hot tap then turn on cold tap slowly and watch for air bubbles in hot tank header if you have one, but 30 seconds should be enough. turn both taps off then try hot tap for flow, it should have cleared the air lock. You have not stated what type of system you have or if it is a pressurised system. my fix is for the old type copper cylinder and header tank system and not for a pressurised system that are mains pressure fed..

What is a drinking fountain?


A drinking fountain, also called a water fountain or a bubbler, is a fountain designed to provide drinking water. It consists of a basin with either continuously running water or a tap. The drinker bends down to the stream of water and swallows water directly from the stream. Modern indoor drinking fountains may incorporate filters to remove impurities from the water and chillers to lower its temperature. Drinking fountains are usually found in public places, like schools, rest areas, libraries, and grocery stores. Many jurisdictions require drinking fountains to be wheelchair accessible (by sticking out horizontally from the wall), and to include an additional unit of a lower height for children and short adults.

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.

Water fills really slow. When you push button to change water temperature the water comes out better for a tick better then back to slow. Is there anything to fix this?


Hi just read your posting.1st turn the taps off and remove the cold water hose from the tap and machine ends.Check the little filters at the ends of the hose for blockages.Also check the machine end where the hose attaches for a blocked filter in the water valve.Now once the filters are clean put the hose on the tap end and the other end of the hose into a bucket.Now turn the tap on and check to see if you have good water pressure.If you do then replace the hose to the machine.Now repeat on the hot hose.If you are still getting low water pressure into the machine and your water pressure is good from the taps then your water valve or valves are faulty.Please reply on how you got on.Looking forward to your reply.

Water pressure is low on the elkay fountain


if you mean the amount of water that comes out of the bubbler head....you can adjust that by accessing the push button cartridge and turning it to adjust how far it is pushed.

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice


Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
