How to Fix Hot Water Problems in Your Shower
Access to a hot shower is one of the simple things that elevates the quality of modern life. Most of the time, problems with hot water supply are due to the water heater or one of the shower valves.
If you’re having problems keeping your hot showers hot, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to go over a few troubleshooting steps you can take.
- Fix shower valve – if your water starts off hot but cools off unexpectedly, then you may need to change out one of the springs or the stem end of the valve assembly behind the shower handle
- Adjust your water heater – there are multiple potential issues with your heater that could be affecting your shower, but the most likely culprit is the dip tube inside the tank flowing cold water into your output pipe
- Address water demand overload – the other possible issue with your water heater is that it’s too small for the volume of water your shower (and any of your other appliances) are demanding at one time
Most of these fixes require a professional’s touch. If you live in the North Shore area, though, then you)’re in luck! Just call Waldman Plumbing at 781.780.3184 to get in touch with our pro plumbers and benefit from our deals and warranties.
