Hot water pressure


I live in a mobile home and had a water leak from hot water tank drain it and replaced the pipe. now in the tub there is verylittle hot water pressure. took the nozzle off the faucet still the same. I think this is also the tub is close to the tank except for the shower. All other faucets work fine

Agreed, or the anti scald is trashed up inside the valve.

Since this is the cheap plastic type faucet might as well get a new faucet

I would either take it a part to see if it is clogged first or replace it all
together

Hot water pressure


In the future, with any plumbing pipe repairs, direct the water that first goes through your repairs to an outlet without a restricter or drain screen.
