    Why is the hot water flow from my tap slower than the cold water flow?

    Why is the hot water flow from my tap slower than the cold water flow? Any ideas why this might be happening? Can it be fixed DIY usually?

    "It's likely you have mains cold water supplying all of the cold water outlets in your home whilst all the hot water outlets are supplied from an unpressurised gravity fed hot water cylinder. If this is not the case and your cold water (apart from the cold supply in your kitchen) is also gravity fed, then it might be that there is an excessive amount of chalk debris at the bottom of your hot water tank restricting the flow of hot water."

    "Hi
    Because the hot water is passed through boiler or any other heating supply so the problem is with heating supply and also with even new boiler the hot water is not same pressure as cold water"

    "Maybe be its fed from a tank in the loft and the mains will be always more powerful unless you install a pump and reduce mains pressure using a pressure reducing valve"
