what i would do, is run it under cold water.


Hot water runs faster than cold water because the molecules in hot water makes it go faster than cold water.


The water pipes are full of cold water. All that cold water has to be flushed from the pipes before the hot water from the tank reaches your faucet.




Technically it won't matter as the hot water is made from incoming cold water. However it would be cheaper to turn on the cold water and let it run very slowly, more than a drip. If you leave the hot open, the heater will be turning on and off all night.


You could install a recirculating pump near your hot water tank and run a pipe from the furthest fixture that has hot water to this pump. This pump would then circulate the hot water back into the COLD inlet of the hot water tank and have hot water available at each fixture when you want. You would require a check valve where the recirculated water enters the cold supply to your hot water tank. CALL A PLUMBER THAT HAS FREE ESTIMATES!!!

Either the cold water froze or someone shut the cold water riser to the upstairs floor.


The plaming tubes are all conected.When the cold water run in kitchen the cold water at the shower become less,so with less cold water at the mix cold-hot (the balance is desterb),making the water hoter.Same if you turn on the hot in the kitchen the water will be colder in the shower.


cold weather, because you get hot when you run


If it is an instant hot water heater, there is warm water in it to begin with. When new water runs throught, it takes a few moments for the elment to heat up and make the water hot, therefore some cold water will get through until it heats up.


As cold as you can. Putting it immediately into ice water and keeping it there as long as you can will reduce the size of the blister that will form.


When you want to know when your hot water heater is broken, simply run your faucet and test the water. If it's cold, the heater is broken.


Hot water comes from a water tank whose contents are heated by either gas or electricity (some are solar). The cold water line and the hot water line run to a valve at which the user is able to blend a comfortable mix of both for various cleaning issues.


It may be in the main cold water shutoff or if you have a water pressure reducer it may be in the reducer manifold


Because it takes a few minuets for the rods inside to heat up so it can begin to boil the water inside there for you have hot water


Cold weather puts more strain on a battery than hot weather.


well what you do is run if under cold water then hold a face washer with ice in it and hold it there thenwrap it there.


You can not get heat from cold water, The engine has to run long enough to get the water in the engine HOT. That is were you get heat from HOT WATER-- Coolent


It uses as many as you run through it, but who would want to heat hot water?


you whould have dirty water and it would run out in kill u



When the hot water heater is empty, you can run out in either one.


Run a new cold supply line from the source. This will drain less pressure from the the cold shower line.
