You might need help from Billy the Sunshine Plumber if you can’t get hot water in your tub but you can get it in the bathroom sink.
Getting dressed to attend the Memorial Day ceremony at Fero Memorial Gardens was especially frustrating this morning. That’s because the water in your tub never got hot. It was especially irritating because the water in the bathroom sink – a couple of feet from the tub – did get hot. You don’t understand what’s wrong.
That is perplexing. A number of reasons could cause the problem.
Among those reasons, according to hunker.com: a defective faucet, a malfunctioning water heater, a clog in a pipe, or a hidden leak.
Hunker.com explains: “A defective bathtub faucet may be the cause of the problem, particularly if you turn the faucet handle to open the faucet and no water comes out. If this happens, it probably means that something is broken between the stem and the seat of the valve that controls the flow of water. …
“Another possible reason why your tub is not getting sufficient hot water is a clogged pipe. This is especially likely if you live in an old home with pipes that have been there for decades. Old pipes sometimes get clogged with mineral deposits due to chemical imbalances in the water. This can block hot water from reaching the bathtub faucet, even though the sink’s hot water faucet is working fine. …
“If you have an electric water heater, one or more of the heating elements may not be working properly, causing water to flow cool or lukewarm. The heater’s thermostat may need to be replaced. Or you may just need to make an adjustment, such as relighting the pilot light in a gas heater or restarting an electric water heater. …
“A leak somewhere in your hot water pipe can cause the hot water to flow poorly or not at all. If you notice water damage and stains on the ceiling or crawl space below the tub, you almost certainly have a leak. Leaks are harder to identify when the tub is on the first floor of a slab-foundation home or apartment.”
