What to do when you lose hot water pressure and only have cold water pressure?

This depends on whether the hot water comes from a combination boiler or from a hot water tank with a header tank feeding it. For a combination boiler the fault would probably be at the boiler, possibly from scale in the heat exchanger. For the system that uses the header tank and a hot water cylinder it could be that the float valve in the header tank is stuck an there for it is not refilling the tank or debris has entered the tank and is blocking the outlet.

Reason for question: Plumber left valve open and flooded house The hot water (heater) tank is fed from a 'header tank'; normally in the loft space but can be combined with the main heater tank (fortic). The header is filled from the water main. Unless the header is drained or its outlet is closed off, it will drain down through the open valve of the hot water (heater) tank.

Remove the header and all oil existing in the quad. There is a plg at the bottom of your quad that will let out all oil. Pass new oil through the quad and out the plug repeatedly and change your sparkplug. Start up quad with header off and let it spit all the water out. After a while you may re-install the header and put the plug back in with the new oil. Dont forget to change oil filter every 10-15 hours of riding time.
