YOUR HOT WATER TANK NEEDS TO BE REPLACED == Answer== It could be cross connected, I would turn on any faucet, then go listen at your washing machine and see if you hear water running through the hot and cold valve where your hoses hook on. If you do you need to replace valve on machine. If it is a new house they may have tied the hot and cold water together. That is very very hard to find. You would have to call a plumber for that and then hope for the best. Still try the washer even on new house.

Obviously hooked up wrong, or the faucets are mismarked . Usually cold on the right, hot on the left.

There is a hot/cold cross connection at one or more of the faucets at you house. make sure all faucets are shut off both hot and cold. If it still occurs more than likely you have a Moen faucet somewhere (most likely).

Low water pressure or cold water main undersized.

Stopped at all faucets? Didn't pay the water bill. If in cold climate, the line from the outside to probably the water heater has probably frozen.

the assembley behind the facet might be faulty. or if it was recently plumbed it may have had only cold water ran to it. good luck snm

Usually red. For example, if you want to use colors to label hot and cold faucets, the hot would be red and the cold would be blue.

If you are referring to a regular building, the cold water feed pipe goes directly to all cold faucets, toilets and hot water tank. The purpose seems obvious.

If it is just one faucet, the cold water line may be next to a heat source. If it is at all faucets, perhaps the lines are reversed on the water heater.

I'm no plumber, but I would imagine that (if the hot faucet is giving you cold water) that the hot and cold pipes leading into the bathroom have been somehow switched.

There won't be any water coming out of the faucets. You may also hear water running, if your pipes run in a crawl space beneath the house. Most of the pipes I have worked on involve an outside faucet that someone forgot to turn off, before the cold season. The water pressure may be reduced; a test... turn off all water faucets and go to your water meter, see if it is still moving this will indicate that you have a leak somewhere.

The water is initially cold and it takes time to warm it up.

If the water is coming from the main, it should not be dirty. If it comes from the cold water storage tank in the loft, maybe it needs to be cleaned or covered.

Usually air in the lines or possibly worn washers in the faucets.

yes idiot the antifreeze is to keep the water from freezing

Well, between cold water and cold water.... I would have to say, Cold water 1) You mean cold water or hot water, and 2) Neither. I would go for lukewarm water. 1) You mean cold water or hot water, and 2) Neither. I would go for lukewarm water.

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.

If the water heater is near this faucet, I would check it frist. The sacrifcial rod in some heaters can cause this. Also, when the water heats up it will expand and back up into the feed water line, mixing the hot and cold water so that the cold water may have the same small.

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

Could be a partial blockage in the supply lines to the faucet. Could also be a different size of supply line. The faucet valves may also need cleaning.

I would suggest to put cold water. Not really cold, but, regular cold, tap water.

Isn't cold water already cold? I would say cold water gets cold first. I've heard that hot water freezes faster than cold water.

It depends on where it's coming from. There is no cooling system connected to most cold water taps, so the temperature never drops below that of the source.

It would probably die. But it depends on how cold the water is. Goldfish like warm water. So take it out of the cold water and put it in warm water.
