 low hot water pressure from bathtub faucet
Author: lconnor (WI)

i have a whirlpool tub in the master bath.has worked well even though not used frequently. last week went to fill the tub up and the cold water runs fine through the faucet but the hot water has very low pressure. hot water pressure throughout the house is fine except for the bathtub faucet. what could possibly be the problem??? it's the same faucet for both hot and cold water. thanks for any suggestions.

swollen rubber parts is all i can figure unless you have an older water heater and the dip tube has deteriorated and found its way to that faucet
