Can you check some other source of hot water? if the pressure there is ok?..if it is, then the problem is on the new tap that you fitted.

    open the hot water line going to the sink. see if the pressure is low . then check also the hot water line going to the tub, see if the pressure is low too , if both pressure are low, then check the pipes that separated the line that goes to the kitchen and the one that goes to the bathroom. there is probably a valve there or a part that could have lessen the pressure going to the bath tub.



    i hope i was able to help. please rate me..tnx.

I have a Vaillant Combi boiler, recently serviced by British Gas, given all clear. Problem we are having is the downstairs hot water tap it is a mixer tap, the cold water is fine but the hot water is


Boilers are inherently dangerous for the average DIY for so many reasons, contact British Gas and have them come back and fix it, tell them it was fine before the "service". They may simply have a control valve shut off.

Oliveri mixer taps


turn off the hot and cold water supply, place a container under the sink where the hose meets the Sink mixer.
release the pressure from the tap by opening the tap to let the water out.
use a suitable tool to undo the flexible hose from the underside of the tap, there should be a small "O" ring on it which you will have to replace as the "O" ring is possibly the cause of the leak.

I have a mixer tap in the kitchen sink. The hot water tap runs fine but I am not getting any cold water. I also have a bath downstairs and the cold water tap there is fine


You will have to turn off your water mains and strip your mixer tap. It is possible that the seal (if it is an older tap with a rubber seal) has become stuck or the threaded part that turns it has gone faulty. If it is a modern tap with ceramic seals, check the operation of the mechanism and see why the ceramic seal is not being opened.

Low pressure from immersion heater to mixer taps on bath can i fit a pump on the pipe work leading to the bath


Hello,

You need to have an higher head of water on the tank that feeds the cylinder that the immersion heater is fitted to. Put the tank on a framework say 3 foot above its present level.

Hi! My hot water taps from the wash hand basin and mixer bath has low pressure. I`ve got a combi boiler in the first floor. Can I install a single impeller pump connected from the hot water outlet from the...


In a word no. Combi boilers work on balanced pressure.ie the mains cold supply to the boiler should be around 1 bar minimum which would give a hot water pressure of the same 1 bar. Assuming the cold water pressure is fine, it sounds like you have a restricted flow on the hot side. If you live in an area with water problems the hot water systems pipework calcify over time effectively reducing water flow. Unless any flexi hoses are kinked, check if there are any filters in the appliances that may be blocked.Also check all valves are fully open and if possible check if there are any restrictions at the valves. Failing all that and the taps are in good order it is possible to fit a pump before the boiler but this may only be a temporary fix overall.

I have mixer taps on my bath, cold water tap works


Remove the tap outer cover. Take out the barrel & inside there is the washer on the end of a screw which slides in and out when the tap is turned. This could have been turned too far out and will not go back in. Clean both the screw thread and inside the barrel, lubricate with petroleum jelly or similar and reassemble & test before replacing the barrel. Again lubricate all threads.
Alternatively buy a new barrel

Water pressure in master bath/shower very low. Sink ok. Could it be the hot/cold mixer?


Yes, if the rest of the house is ok, then the point of failure is more likely the control at that point.

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.
