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?
