Forum Title: Problems getting full hot water
Hello, I have a somewhat strange problem. I own a single floor, 1250SF home built on a slab in Florida. In the master bedroom bath mostly, if I turn on the faucet to full hot I get warm only. If I leave it running and go to the tub 5 feet away and turn it on full hot for 3 to 5 seconds, the faucet water turns hot. I get the same issue in other rooms to a lesser degree.I have even tried shutting the cold supply off altogether and still only get warm. I have replaced the faucet with no change. Can anyone point me in the right direction with this.

It sounds as though you have cold water crossing into the hot water system somewhere. Start with Frodo's suggestion, and we can walk you through it from there.

OK, I tried what you said and shut off the hot water tank. I still got water flow from every faucet in the house on the hot side. They are all single control valves.
