Hot water heater has hot in tank but dose not come out of hot water line on tank


most electric hot water systems use a heat transfer process where the element is in one tank and the house water is in another
the house water is what is being drawn off when you turn on a tap
there is a regulator valve at the top of the tank with a small lever that you open up to let water in and air out of the system
another point is that there may be a hot/cold mixer on the hot water outlet which limits the temperature of hot water to prevent scalding injuries in the bath and shower or sink
If you have one fitted they are known to malfunction and cut the hot water temperature down as, they mix too much cold water into the hot water pipe.
have a plumber check it out

How to unistall franke mythos mtx taps


Turn off the water supply from the heater and at the main water supply line outside. place a container under the sink where the flick mixer is mounted to catch the water that will come out of the lines when you undo the fittings.
there should be 2 flexible braided lines coming from the mixer to the water supply lines, undo both fittings from those lines, then undo the brass nut that fastens the mixer to the sink, you may need a 10 or 12mm socket with an extension bar to get up under the sink to be able to undo the nut.
there should be a metal horseshoe shaped retaining plate that holds the mixer to the sink which should come off when the nut is undone.
You may or may not have to remove the flexible lines from the mixer which you should be able to sort out when you get to that point.
I hope this info helps you with your problem, the info may not be exactly how I have explained but that is how most mixers are fitted or removed.

Greenstar 30cdi hot water issue


The problem is not the water heater. The shower has a mixer or a limiter built into the plumbing so that the water wont get hot. It is a safety feature to prevent burns and protect children from scalding.

I have hot water coming out of house taps but not from out of the shower, we do not have a bath tub. there seems to be no obvious leaks. HELP! what can i do i have 4 stinky kids that badly need a shower


The tap fitting on the shower may have failed. Some of the modern fittings have a more complicated internal mechanism than the traditional taps and can fail rendering the tap inoperable. Turn off the water at the mains. First take off the tap handle and then with a spanner carefully unwind the tap spindle. Be very carefull not to use excessive force in case you damage the pipework behind. If it does not come ralatively easily leave it for someone else. When you have this out have someone crack the main valve and you should have hot water coming out. If the fitting itself is the problem you may be able to take the spindle and washer out of a standard brass garden tap and use it as a temporary fix untill you get a propper replacement. Just another thought, you may have an isolation valve on the hot water line to the bathroom. Could a kid have turned it off?

Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.

Hot water taps and showers pressure very low cold taps ok


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
