New faucet, no hot water


I have kind of a strange problem. I installed a new faucet and there's no hot water. Cold is fine. Hot worked intermittently at first and then just kind of quit. Verified that I have hot water pressure at the shutoff by hooking it up to a garden hose, so it's not a problem in the pipes. Checked the hose connection for contamination, no problem there. Checked the faucet valve for contamination, it's clean. AND THEN - I installed a different (same make) faucet. Same problem.

I'm stumped. The old one worked. What can the problem be? I guess it's possible I have two identically defective new faucets, but that seems unreasonable, what am I missing?

Thanks in advance!

Well nevermind, I gave it another try and figured it out. I had installed a flood protected supply line, and apparently the 60+ year old lines can still supply enough pressure to trip it....
