I can't get my head
around my fresh water
system/plumbing. I have two fresh water tanks
and two Whale 6 gal water heaters. I can select the flow from either (or both) water tank(s)as well as each hot water tank. The system has a 3 GPM water pressure pump
and an an accumulator.
All appear to be working correctly except I am not getting equal hot water pressure to the shower
(but do get cold water pressure) The shower
gets too hot and turning the hot side of the shower mixer doesn't cool water down once it is hot. I thought the shower mixing valve inside the shower was bad but when I got it off and turned on the water I get this (see image below)
I have owned this boat
for four years and the shower has always been a bit unpredictable. It's a 2002 built boat
and I do not think it has a hot/cold mixer built into the plumbing
system before the shower mixer.
Why is the hot flow so much less than the cold?
