Hot water circulation

I can get very hot water in about 6 seconds in a sink that is about five feet away from the boiler. However, I get only lukewarm water for 90 seconds in a sink that is about five feet away horizontally but one story up. Also slow in sinks two stories up.

Hot water circulation

Do you have a boiler or a water heater?

Hot water circulation

Is there a hot water circulating pump on the system. If so, likely defective. Usually only in apartment/office buildings. Not sure what you are referring to.
