hot water


In all the fixtures or just in one? If in all start by checking the incoming water shut off valve for full open position. start there.

hot water


bottom drain hose hookup should be just like cold water pressure but hot.if it is on all the faucets then the copper pipe out of the top of the heater is building up minerals narrowing down the opening..or the pick up rod within is breaking down and retricting hot water out.

How old is your home? Is any or all of your plumbing galvanized pipe?
