Question

Low Hot Water Pressure But Cold Is Fine


I bought this mobile home and it has low water pressure but the cold water pressure is fine. The hot water still gets really hot but just no pressure.

if all the hot water sides are the same evn with the air aters off the spigots then you probably have a mineral build up.the hot copper line just out of the top of the HWH is resticted down with .........STUFF.the lead out pipe needs to be removed/cleaned or replaced

So I'm assuming if the hot water pressure is bad in a just one of the spigots throughout the house, it's just that particular spigot with
build up or a clogged pipe?

Our shower spigot does this and rattles when using both hot and cold water or the "middle" of the dial. The hot water pressure on all other spigots are fine throughout house.
