    Cold water help.

    Hey guys.

    Im hoping someone can help. My taps in the kitchen always pump out boiling hot water. But when we run a bath it is only luke warm. Any ideas why?

    Thanks

    you will have to give some details of your heating system

    Try running the water at a reduced rate

    It is a Combi boiler. We have not lived here long.

    Europa 224 (never heard of them!)

    It is just the bath tap that is cold its really weird

    I had a problem like this with my army house, the boiler couldn't heat the water quick enough for the bath, but could for the sinks downstairs. Like I said run the bath slower or reduce the water pressure at the stopcock

    Ditto, I have the same problem and if I turn the tap down the water is fine.

    Thanks for the advice! I will try that next time.

    Your cold water tap is pumping out hot water?
    If so, it's nothing to do with the solution you've been given.

    Good combis have a flow restrictor which eliminates this, cheap ones don't so you have to reduce the flow a different way. Doing the stop **** will help but it will also make the flow very noisy, the best way is to fit a pressure reducing valve.

    Thanks guys. I will look in to that. The cold taps are cold saint. Nothing to worry about there.
