Odds are that the cold water lines to the faucet you are trying to use are shut off but the hot water lines coming from the water heater are not. That is why you have hot water but no cold water.

Because hot water is still in the pipes from when you turned on the hot water, and when you turned on the cold faucet it had to let out the hot water first. This means you have a single-pipe sink. Double-pipe sinks have a pipe for hot and a pipe for cold and it blends them as it turns on.


hot water in a freezer will get hotter depending if the freezer is turned on.


Hot water tank not working or a faulty faucet.


If you are not living in the desert where the cold water is hot during the summer, check to see if perhaps the plumbing is backwards: is the hot water faucet giving cold water? I once had hot water in my toilets.


I assume you mean the water is hot when you flush it. If so the toilet has been plumbed into the hot water system when it should be plumbed into the cold. That happened to me once I thought the toilet was going through menopause, However as it turned out however the hot flushes turned out to be a hot water pipe being connected rather then a cold water pipe.



Water can be hot or cold if you want


On single handle shower valves, designed to let cold water first and turn handle farther to mix hot water to desired setting. If hot water turned on first, possibility of getting scalded. If seperate hot/cold handles for shower, shower valve needs work.


Either this is a plumbing mistake or the cold water has been switched off and the hot water heater is draining. If no cold line valve has been turned off. It may indicate a burst pipe.


It is because cold water is more dense than hot water, thus hot water floats on cold water


When hot water and cold water are mixed together, heat flows from hot water to cold water and brings them to equilibrium at a temperature intermediate to that of hot water and the cold water That may be right, but I think that the hot water would be more dominant causing the cold water to almost instantly turn hot.

This occurs when your hot water heater is either broken, disconnected, or has exhausted its supply of heated water. In cold weather, heated water may be cooling in the pipes on the way to the faucet, especially when it has just been turned on.


because water would be hot if our environment is hot and if our environment is cold then water would be cold


The density of cold water is higher that hot water


The volume of hot water is greater than that of cold water, therefore hot water is less dense than cold water.


Hot water is less denser than cold water and has a greater temperature.


I think not because cold water is heaver than hot water and hot water rises to the top and cold drops to the bottom.


hot. it is cold when it condensates.


(%hot water)(Temp hot water)+(%cold water)(temp cold water)


Hot water is less dense than cold water. That is why when you boil a pot of water, the hot water on the bottom goes to the top and the cold water sinks.


cold water freezes fasterHot freezes faster than cold.Cold water freezes faster.


that happens because cold water is heavier than hot water.


hot water has more volume than cold water


If you let hot water cool down, it will become cold water.
