Are your valves temperature balanced set properly?

Did someone take a branch off the return circulation line?

Are your hot water lines insulated?

Do you have lines passing though a cooler ambient temperature location?

Do you have return circulation?

"but if i flush the stool the water gets really hot like it should.."

Hot water should not be connected to the toilet.

Something is screwed up.

What about the water at the lav in that bathroom?

If the lines are exposed in the basement try feeling the different lines when the shower is running to see if you have any cross connections.

Hi Bill, I saw that remark about hot water in the stool and was going to say something BUT I saw the poster state "Like it should"

Believe it or not I saw some folks think if warm water is good HOT got to be better.

Reasoning is adding a small line to the cold water inlet by the toilet will temper it to prevent condensation during the warmer months.

The key is know how to figure the flow rate and volume required and some folks just cross lines as it is obvious here BUT sometimes it is fun to sit back and see what others post.
