Question about Plumbing
In my new bathroom, fitted a year ago, the hot water supply to the shower has never been satisfactory. The fitter has been back and tried numerous remedies, including fitting non return valves, but now thinks that the pump is the problem. The manufacturers tell him that the COLD water tank needs holes drilled in it, and being an old asbestos one it has to be replaced. I am expected to bear the cost of the replacement tank. Is this a problem anyone else has encountered - how likely is it that this is the solution? The pump draws water from the hot ater tank, but that in itslef then draws from the cold water. I have never had problems with water pressure in the house - if anything it is on the high side. Any ideas please before I authorise the extra work?
If you have good water pressure to every other hot water faucet inj the house then the problem lies in the shower valves. There are some very small passages in the valve and getting dirt removed can be very hard to do. You could try trurning the water off and blowing air back through the shower or taking apart the valve and flushing the valve out with it dissasembled.
But my opinion is that the problem is in the valve.
