Luke warm water from hot water tap
Asked May 27, 2005, 12:14 PM
I purchased a condo (efficiency) that was converted from a motel. I 've had and have problems with hot water in taps. The unit is old and the feed pipes from the hot/cold water supplies are not accessible. Last year all I got was luke warm water from the shower and two taps in the unit. I had a plumber install a new mixer valve on the shower and now I get hot water from the shower. The other two taps give luke warm water unless I turn the shower on and then both taps give hot water like the shower. What the heck is going on? I can't see where the hot water feeds come off the intake line (either before the shower or after, I would think before the shower). The converted motel has Two hot water heaters (gas) that supply hot water to 5 units each.
