Low hot water pressure but the cold water pressure is good.

    I have that, too. It's probably built up sediment in the hot water tank. The tank needs to be drained (cut off the electricity to the tank and cut off the cold water supply to the tank.) Hook a water hose to the bottom value of the tank, open a hot water faucet, and let it drain. Turn the cold water on to the tank, let it fill up, and repeat. Should fix it.

If the build up is really bad you will have to take the whole unit apart. Remove all the elements and break up what you can with a wire coat hanger or something similar. Use a product like Lime Away. Check the elements carefully as they can be damaged by build up. You probably have one or more burned out from this. Check continuity and replace if needed. Make sure the wattage is the same as the old one. If it is a different shape make sure no element touches another. This should solve your problem

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.

I have a 2010 Maytag Centennial (MVWC300VW1) washer. In the fill mode using hot or warm water setting, it stops filling after 20 seconds. I have replaced the water inlet valve how ever the problem is still...


Hi Daniel.
I've heard of this problem before. In that case it was because the water pressure was too low and the inlet is set for higher pressure.
If you have a low pressure (gravity) delivery you may want to check if there is an inlet specifically designed for LOW water pressure.
Good luck

F17 coming up on screen what is this fault


http://teral.ru/katalog_stiral_nyh_mashin/siemens_simens/?p=6

use google translate

Malfunction of the water of the Gulf ( the Gulf of spent more time than envisaged by the program ) .

lol

so your water intake is too low a preasure

try too use low pressure valves for cold water
if you have low pressure
then use the hot water valve in the cold water
cold water valves are like 2-3 bar intake
hot water 1 bar or less

so work better for low pressures intakes

or there is a flow filter on the back of valves
you need to remove it with plyers and clean it

moreover check the valve opens

but this is what F17 means... no water in in the right time for it too be in {low pressure}


good luck

No hot water pressure in kitchen, low cold pressure


sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was installed..to cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

I have a problem with low hot water pressure can you help would an elec shower help


1) If possible, it is Best to solve pressure problem before installing new shower.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

2) If the cold water has good pressure, then Electric shower could fix problem ... but shower would have to be connected to the cold water line and not the hot.

3) Seems the expense of adding a electric shower would be greater than having plumber fix low hot water pressure.
Assuming you have access to plumbing pipes, and this is not apartment building.

I have very low hot water pressure in may home....cold water pressure is ok....


You have clog in hot water line or inside water heater.
Use Brady BTG100 pressure gauge to assist.
http://www.ronshomeandhardware.com/BTG-100-100-PSI-Water-Pressure-Gauge-p/405357.htm

Put gauge on outdoor spigot and then turn on hot water to get baseline.
Put gauge on water heater drain, and then turn on hot water. If pressure stays high, then clog is in hot water nipple or inside pipes after water heater.
If pressure drops, then clog is in cold water nipple, shut off valve above tank, or somewhere in line between main cold water and water heater.
Water heater nipples, shut off to water heater, and elbows are good suspect.
Any galvanized and copper connection is good suspect.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Low pressure on hot water taps and showers


Many states building codes require a pressure regulator and expansion tank for hot water heater installation. Check the pressure regulator if you have one as this would only affect the hot water pressure. Adjust or replace. Rap the expansion tank like knocking hard on a door. Hollow sound is good. Dull thud means it needs to be replaced as it is filled with water.
