We provide an apartment maintenance odd job of the week from our friends at Keepe and this week it is about why only hot water is coming out of the kitchen faucet?
Keepe got a job request in the greater Seattle area for a kitchen sink in which the water would only come out scalding hot.
When the issue was reported, the property manager stated that, “When you turn all the way to cold you only get a trickle of cold water. You can’t even get warm water, it’s always super-hot.”
The issue had been going on for a few months.
The faucet valve was malfunctioning and killing the pressure on cold side, stopping the flow of cold water and only letting the hot water in.
When our worker came in, they were able to assess the situation and find that the faucet valve was malfunctioning and killing the pressure on cold side, stopping the flow of cold water and only letting the hot water through.
After the source of the issue was found, the faucet was replaced and is now working great!
