IF YOUR ON A CITY WATER SYSTEM AT NIGHT THE PRESSURE GETS REALLY HIGH. PRV'S SOMETIMES GO BAD AN LET WATER BY. MOST OF THE TIME A WATER HEATER POP OFF GOES OFF. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A CHEAP FACUET AND NEEDS REPLACING OR A PACKING NUT TIGHTEND.

Can hot water bleed into the cold water line through a sing handle shower body?

Yes, it can also cross through a two handled faucet. Both the hot and cold sides of the faucet must be on and the flow of water must be stopped or greatly reduced on the outlet side of the faucet. This can occur when a hose with a spray nozzle is attached to a laundry tub faucet with the faucet on and the spray nozzle off, or when a shower faucet is on but the shower spray head is off. When another cold water outlet in the system is turned on then the pressure on the cold side of the laundry tub or shower faucet in question could be lowered below the pressure on the hot side and hot water can flow into the cold water side. There are faucets which have integral check valves which prevent this from occurring. WWW.WOODBRIDGEPLUMBING.COM
