Need Help With hot tap That Turns on but Only runs for a few Minutes

Postby LeeLottie » Sat Dec 28, 2019 10:45 am

My mother has been dealing with this issue for about 15 years and didn’t say anything to any of us. Her hot tap on her bath turns on fine (sometimes with a bit of a sputter) but only runs for a matter of minutes before stopping completely. She has to turn it off and wait for about 15 mins or so to turn it back on again and the process repeats. This leaves her getting up and down over the course of a long period of time just to draw a bath, and even boiling kettles to help fill it faster. I have absolutely no idea what’s wrong and she keeps refusing a plumber. Any ideas what the issue might be or if I could possibly fix it myself? Any advice is welcome, thanks in advance!
