Plumbing Question

Hot water pressure

Hi, had a new kitchen fitted and a new mixer tap the hot water comes out slowly, could be due to the very small diameter of the flexy pipe into the tap. The boiler is in the same room, is it possible to fit some sort of inline water pump into the hot water pipe?? Any sensible help would be great cheers guys :)

If your on a combi boiler your pressure should be enough to run the taps, if on a gravity feed most modern taps will not work due to lacck of pressure. You will have to get the fitter to get taps for your system. have you first checked that when installed there were no kinks in the hoses? Also check that all isolation valves were turned back on fully.

Get the kitchen fitter back and ask him to check the fault out. Will be under a years warranty

is it a combi boiler ? if it is then there is an issue if not you have a gravity fed hot water system which often causes issues with modern taps.
