If you got galvanized pipes, then you got corroded pipes just like clogged arteries that are restricting the flow. Also, might be time to replace your outdated water heater because they don't last forever. Average is 6-8 years.

Installed a new shower and have only cold water hooked up but only getting a trickle of water through it.


Lots of shower valves have pressure balancing cartridges nowadays in order to get full flow out of hot or cold you have to have both the hot and cold hooked up to give even pressure on both sides of the cartridge that should fix your problem and give you a full flow

Hot water pressure is weak. Shower head isn't clogged. Cold water pressure is good. How do I increase the hot water pressure?


Is the hot water pressure good at other fixtures in the house? I'm guessing your newer valves have a scolding adjustment that is set very low. Check the instructions that came with the valve assembly.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply


Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

I have to turn my shower to full temperature to get any heat out of it but when its on full the pressure is just trickle. I used to have it on number 5 but now number 5 just gives freezing cold water - any...


You have a blockage of the hot water coming to your shower head, or a blockage in the supply line coming to the shower head.
Be careful of the hot water in this procedure below.
Remove the head and try to clear the blockage from the head, as you have the shower head removed try to turn on the hot water to make sure you are getting a full stream of hot water to the shower head, if you do have a full stream coming to the shower head then the blockage is in the supply line coming to the shower head.

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.


Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

When the shower is turned on to hot setting the water just trickles out. When on cold or medium setting the water pressure is ok. The hotter you want the shower the more pressure it loses. Any ideas?


Sounds like the filter on the hot water inlet is blocked. Is this a new shower or one that has been in use for some time ? Also , what make?

Automatic Trickle Questions


o you multitask while you wait for the shower to get hot? Brush your teeth? Make the bed? Maybe even pick out your clothes or iron a collar? Many of us do—and don’t know that while we’re feeding the dog or grabbing that second cup of coffee, two-and-a-half gallons of hot water per minute are funneling down the drain. The automatic trickle reduces the flow of the water as soon as it reaches a comfortable 95 degrees. This way your hot water is no longer running down the drain while you’re away from the shower. The automatic trickle allows your showerhead to warm your shower without wasting hot water and tell you (hear) the when your shower is ready. Evolve is the leading manufacturer of this kind of products.
