Are you using the wall instant hot shower heater? You should be careful, sometimes if all of sudden you only got hot water, you will get burned.

Call the supply companyright away.

    Again, If you use regular shower, the water from the gas water heater, you should;



    1. Fix the faucet, probably the cold water side got small dirt blocked.clean it and put it back. if you want fix by yourself, you should turn off the main water supply first and then fix it.



    2. Change the faucet.

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

Sometimes there isn't enough hot water for a shower when the hot water mode is set.I have set the hot water temperature to 65 degrees


Are you waiting long enough for the water to be totally heated, before showering? Unfortunately, all the water doesn't reach 60 degrees celsius (140 degrees fahrenheit) in a matter of minutes. Try switching to the hot water mode sooner and allow enough time for the system to heat up entirely. If that doesn't solve the problem, the burner may need cleaning,

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Do I need to replace the thermocoupling on my Reliance 501 gas water heater? Model is 5 30 NOMT7 C. Recently, I've noticed an intermittent problem with the the hot water not staying consistent. So we're...


The thermocouple is a safety for the gas valve. It tells it the pilot light is lit. If your pilot light is not going out and the burner fires when you turn up the thermostat, it is all working as it should. In other words, if you don't need to re-light the pilot, your thermocouple is OK. Turning up the temperature of the water is a good idea, just be careful not to burn anyone with the hotter water. You mite want to try a water saver shower head. Some don't throw enough water to get the soap off, but I bought one that can be turned to adjust flow and we have been happy with it. If I missed what you need from this, please let me know. Roger

I have hotter water going to the facets than going to the shower and my hot water comes straight from the boiler


The handle for your shower may have a way to adjust it so that you can turn the handle farther to let more hot water into the mix. That would be the easiest solution that I can think of, Without getting to involved. Hopefully this helps.

You don't indicate what kind of valve(s) you have in your shower/bathtub.

It is sometimes the case, when you have separate hot and cold valves that use the traditional flat washer, the rubber/viton washer wears over time and actually becomes cut, such that a part of the washer protrudes from the valve face.

Hot water will cause the distorted washer to expand. Consequently, as more and hotter water flows through the valve, the washer expands to the point where it constricts the flow of hot water.

Replace the washer, at least on the hot water valve.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.

Is it a bosch.What is the exact model number.I have one and i love it once you get it set.It seems that there are two flame levels low water flow and high water flow.If your shower has a water saving restricter in it it may not flow enough to let the flame get too high.So i would remove it.If there is a knob on the front turn it all the way clockwise and try it.There is also a screw on the inside that you can adjust the low water flow flame , it the brass one with a locking screw on it.Your manual should show it.If you need to adjust it turn on your shower and go check the flame and use that screw to increase the flame.Hope this helps and let me know how that works

Most conventional showers have brass seats or rubber seats that can deteriorate over time. these will leak or dribble and not maintain your temp.. Rubber and brass seats are a fairly common and easy replacement. It sure beats trying to rip out a shower valve.
