No Hot Water in Bathtub Faucet

No Hot Water

When there is no hot water from your bathtub faucet it can be quite irritating, especially if you are preparing for a hot bath after a long day.

No hot water in your bathtub faucet is often the result of a valve cartridge or stem that has been clogged or damaged.

What is a bathtub faucet cartridge or stem?

The bathtub faucet cartridge or stem is the inner component of your bathtub faucet. The bathtub faucet cartridge turns the water to your bathtub faucet on and off and also regulates temperature. 

What damages a bathtub faucet cartridge or stem?


Many people do not know this but the water system in the Chicagoland area can carry sediments, minerals, and sometimes small debris through the water lines. 

These sediments, minerals, and small debris can make it all the way to your bathtub faucet and get lodged in the bathtub faucet cartridge, causing damage.

Wear and tear

Cartridges and stems wear out over time. Your bathtub faucet is made in a way that allows us to easily replace the cartridge or stem because it is considered a wearable item. 

Replacing the bathtub faucet cartridge or stem will usually solve your no hot water plumbing problem.
