There may be some debris in the tap, left over from the old one. Turn the water OFF again, remove the new tap and look for any debris that may be clogging the outlet. Also. make sure the new tap is seated properly and is identical to the old one you had to remove.

Hope this helped to solve your problem, Eddie. Please be kind enough to rate my response. Thanks!

Why no water will come out of the water heater


Is there a shutoff on the hot water line coming out of the tank? Is this problem only at one tap or all of the taps in the house? Is the cold water supply to the tank turned off? If it is no water will flow since the cold water pressure pushes the hot out of the tank.

Air lock in hot water tap in kitchen. tap was left running, how do we fix?


connect a hose from the cold tap to the hot and turn on hot tap then turn on cold tap slowly and watch for air bubbles in hot tank header if you have one, but 30 seconds should be enough. turn both taps off then try hot tap for flow, it should have cleared the air lock. You have not stated what type of system you have or if it is a pressurised system. my fix is for the old type copper cylinder and header tank system and not for a pressurised system that are mains pressure fed..

It sounds like the bladder in your pressure tank is water logged. Turn your pump off and open a tap and let the pressure off. Once the water has completely stopped coming out of the tap go to your pressure tank and pump air into it. There should be more water come out of the tap. Continue to pump are in until you reach the pressure recommended for your tank and there is no longer water coming out of the tap. Close the water tap and turn the pump back on and this should fix the problem. If it does not you will probably need a new pressure tank. The bigger the pressure tank you have also will make the pump work less. I prefer a smaller one myself as there is less change in the shower pressure when the pump cycles than with a bigger tank but this is just a matter of prefference. Some people prefer a larger tank as it uses less power by the pump not working as often.

No water coming from hot valve on faucets


Have you thought about possible calcium buildup in your hot water tank/pipes? I am helping a friend in Palm Springs CA (California not Canada) and we are going to pour a really huge pile of vinegar into the hot water tank (let it sit for a day) then open up the hot water taps to the kitchen (where we don't have hot water flowing very well), then going to let everything sit for another day. Remove the aerator from the kitchen faucet after letting the vinegar/water solution sit in the pipes for a day, and turn on the kitchen hot water tap. Once all the **** is drained out, you must of course drain out the vinegar/water solution from your hot water tank or you will smell like French Fries (in Canada we put vinegar on French Fries) when you shower for a few days.

If you don't understand what the basic chemistry of dissolving calcium via this method is all about, then please call a professional plumber. Hope this helps, and remember that Google is your friend (sometimes), but be careful...

Cold water tap not working, house heating not as strong.


Okay let's trouble shoot this problem. The Hot water issue may just be that your Temp. control is not set as high as it was before it was replaced. Find the control on the water heater and check the setting. You can adjust it hotter from there, but it is not recomended to set it all the way to HOT. Just increase it at small adjustments and see if the water gets hotter. The Cold Water Tap issue.....Turn off the Cold and Hot water supply lines to the faucet. Remove the Cold water tap. VERY SLOWLY TURN ON THE COLD WATER SUPPLY and see if you get water coming out of the line. If you get water, then your line is okay. Inspect the valve to see if there is any debris in or on it. Clean and reinstall both taps and turn back on the water. It should work. Now if you turn the water on SLOWLY when the Cold water tap is removed, and no water comes out, Then you know you have an issue with the line going to the cold water side. (Frozen Line, Debris in supply line valve, Broken or Leaking Water Line) I hope this assists you........Joe
