We had this issue and found it was the gasket inside the one shower head. Same thing - two showers, same shower head, one didn't work right. Once we removed the gasket and reinserted correctly everything was fine. For us, the gasket had been disturbed during our move.

Another possibility is clogging due to lime buildup. You can either remove the shower head and soak it in Lime Away, or bag it and soak it on the pipe.

In the US, there is a law that a shower head can only put out a certain amount of water. Depending on the design of the head, there might just be a little filter/stopper piece that can easily be removed from where it screws into the pipe. Some people remove the restriction device to have "more pressure". If the shower heads were installed by a previous ...

Water pressure at the ground level is the issue here as your pipes go up you lose pressure at .445 pounds per foot 5 stories up ~50’ your pressure would be ~22 psi less this may not be enough pressure to open the valve to the tank. If you are on a well you can increase the cut out pressure on your pump. If on a city water system contact them about the low ...

The "Use No Oil" is a warning placed on the gauge that may have application in a pressurized gas setup. The most common example being on an oxygen / acetylene gas welding rig. Any of the fittings including the manifold, meters, pressure regulators and connection hoses in such application are always used with clean non-oiled threaded fittings. The reason is ...

It sounds like you fill valve is not properly set, or has failed. Do not run the furnace until you are sure the system (boiler shell, circulating pipes, and radiators) are completely filled with water. If the water level in the boiler gets too low the system could be damaged. Boilers usually have a fuse plug that limits the damage if the water level fails, ...

This picture shows a typical gas-fired, hot water furnace system: The black thing in the center is the recirculator pump. When the furnace runs that recirculator is supposed to run. If you touch it or put your ear to it, you should detect it running. If it is making no noise, or is buzzing, then it needs to be replaced.

You may have a pump protection device controlling power to your pump. If you have this device there may be a problem with it or you pump causing it to act like this. Search "Pumptec Franklin" ours acted similarly when the device faulted.

Your recovery rate is the problem. A larger water heater will still need to be refilled as the water is removed so you will run out of pressure in about the same amount of time. A water tank of several hundred gallons added to your system with a pump may help, but in the summer you may have a lower water table and not have water at all. In some areas there ...

Check the water pressure & air pressure of your system when the water almost stops flowing as you've described (i.e. before the pump engages). You may have a small hole in your bladder. The other possibilities are: The valve that your incompetent service person opened is not opened completely. That would cause the incoming water to not keep up with ...
