Possibilities could include faulty shut valve as water goes into water heater restricting water flow
Next could be sediment built up in tank causing water flow to be weak.

Check the lines going in for correct water flow going in for water restriction.

Have gas storage Rheem hot water system, pressure in hot water taps is low


hot water pressure is equal to cold water inlet pressure
check for tap restriction, hot water section free of air , ( release the pressure valve ;lever to fill and bleed out air)
if you have a hot/cold mixer at the hot water system, they can fail and block of the hot water flow
(That unit has to be fitted by law on heater installation)
have it tested first as they cost in excess of $15.00 aud to replace

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

I have a hotpoint hot water heater it's about 6 years old. When I turn the hot water on it runs very slowly the water pressure is very low and it's like this throughout the house how do I fix this problem...


You have clog in the water line.
Since all hot water pipes are involved, clog is probably near water heater.

Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that threads onto hose connection.

Check outdoor pressure for baseline pressure in your home.
Turn off electricity to hot water heater for an hour or two so there is not scalding water.
Open drain valve on water heater to see if water heater is clogged with sediment.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

Put pressure gauge on drain valve and compare with outside pressure.
Open hot water spigot on bathtub and see if tank pressure drops ... if tank pressure drops significantly with bathtub spigot on, then clog is on incoming cold water before tank, and could be on outgoing hot water pipes too.
If tank pressure stays about the same, then clog is on outgoing hot water pipes.

Clog can be sediment caught in cold water shut off valve located above tank. Open and close valve and test pressure again. Take apart incoming cold water pipes above tank and check for sediment. Replace valve. Look at condition of cold water nipple on top of tank.

Sediment caught at hot water elbow near tank.
Sediment can fill up old pipes. Take apart hot water pipes above water heater and see condition.
Look at condition of hot water nipple on top of tank.
You may have to take apart pipes up to first or second elbow.

Pipes can decay at joint where copper pipe connects to galvanized pipe. Check for copper to galvanized connections on cold or hot pipes and replace section of galvanized pipe. Copper pipe will probably be good, the galvanized pipe will deteriorate. Replace copper-to-galvanized joint with 3/4" non-conducting union from hardware store

No water pressure on hot water, when i by pas


How many valves on by-pass, or what style by-pass have you got on there? Remember water has to go in bottom (cold) and then out top (hot) . No valve in between should be open. Valves going direct in to cold, and out hot need to be open.

Noritz tank less propane water heater, no out going pressure


There's a filter on the cold water side of the unit. You'll notice a black, plastic, cylindrical component directly below the unit on the cold water line pointing to the left. If you shut of your water and unscrew that cap, there will be a filter attached to the other end.

If the filter is clean, I'd recommend calling tech support for help. You might have an error code.

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
