I installed a new water heater after finding a small leak. Now in a couple of faucets within our house the hot water pressure is very low, where as the cold water pressure is normal. What may be causing this loss of hot water pressure?

Three possibilities:
1.Valve is not open all the way or faulty valve.
2.Pipe is clogged.
3.Remove the hot water valve stems from the
faucets and clean out the solder or debris from the bottom of the faucet. This is a
common problem when soldering water lines.
Do not forget to remove the faucet strainer
when checking the lines to keep them from
becomming clogged.
