No hot water? (Prestige Triangle Tube says low water pressure)

Does anyone know how to simply increase water pressure so i can have hot water again and not call a service tech?

it reads low water pressure, below 10psi. raise it and the Prestige will reset.

is there a simple way to do this with the Prestige or is it much more complicated?

I really don't know much about this stuff and being Sunday, no one to call. need my hot shower.

thanks in advance.

Re: No hot water? (Prestige Triangle Tube says low water pressure)

Seriously, I’m not sure what Prestige Triangel is so I’m not sure I understand your question.

But ... I have a shower that has lost hot water pressure only — cold water pressure is fine. From what I have researched, it is a build up of gunk in the hot water side. Some showers have a “filter” you can clean out, but mine doesn’t. I have to change the whole handle. Working up the courage to do it ... not that I have any question on how, rather I’m worried about damaging the pipes while getting the old one off (original from mid-70s I believe). I’m happy to hear any tips on that!

Haven't had this issue before, but I would highly recommend that you call a reputable plumber to deal with this....and not try to do anything yourself - unless you know exactly what the hell you're doing.

Re: No hot water? (Prestige Triangle Tube says low water pressure)

Are you on a well or on city water?

Do you have a water filtration or water softener system?

But as noted, your safest option is to call a technician.

That would also take care of the bird-shitting problem.

If the OP is shitting birds, I can see why he needs more hot water.

Who knows. He hasn't updated the thread about the baby bird problem.
