Plumbing Problems in the UK? Ask a Plumber Now.
hi i am dan i can help you with this. if it is only a tub valve that is not getting any hot water the problem is at the valve. on possibility but not likely if it just happened with no work done is the valve for the hot water side is off or the more likely problem is either the valve is clogged on the hot water side or the thermostat in the valve is bad and keeping it stuck closed. if you need to call a plumber out they should defiantly be able to fix the faucet and should not be too difficult. if you have any more questions please let me know. if not i would appreciate it if you could rate me on my service by selecting one of the 5 stars at the top of your page and thank you for using just answer.
as i said it is highly unlikely that a valve is closed if no other work has been done but that is the only other possibility. if it is clogged it will most likely be clogged at the valve. any way to diagnose it will require dissembling the valve. all the work is done from the front of the valve. there should be no reason to cut the floor up to repair unless the pipe is damaged depending on what kind of valve it is will determine what thermostat it has but it will be internal on the valve sometimes part of the cartridge if it is a single lever. it should take a qualified plumber about 1 hr to fix depending on whatever your local company charges an hr will determine the price. if this answers your questions i would appreciate it if you could rate me on my service by selecting one of the 5 stars at the top of your page and thank you for using just answer.
