No Hot Water in Kitchen Faucet

Every so often, we get a call from a customer that says they are not getting hot water in their kitchen faucet. 

If you had hot water to your kitchen faucet before and suddenly you do not that means there is something physically obstructing water flow. 

Repercussions of galvanized steel in old homes

There are many older homes in the Chicagoland area that range from 50-150 years old. 

Many of these home’s water systems were made of galvanized steel to transmit the water throughout the home. 

We no longer install galvanized steel here in Illinois. We use copper because we have realized galvanized steel rusts and eventually leaks. 

Antiquated water systems in the Chicagoland area

There are many buildings in the Chicagoland area with old galvanized steel water systems. 

These antiquated existing water systems will release rust into the water system leading to the kitchen faucet causing a water pipe blockage. 

Hot water lines in these water systems always deteriorate much quicker than cold lines. 

Why Is There No Hot Water Coming Out of my Kitchen Faucet?

Sudden clogs in the hot water line to the kitchen faucet can occur in the water pipe, the supply line to the kitchen faucet, and/or the kitchen faucet cartridge.

Most common causes and solutions:

  • A cartridge replacement to the kitchen faucet can fix your no hot water issue. 
  • The faucet can be clogged which usually must be replaced. 
  • Occasionally, we have to shut down hot water to the unit to change the hot water shut off and blow out the line. 
  • In some extreme cases, the deteriorated piping will be beyond repair and require a full replacement. 

Whatever the issue, Rescue Plumbing will come to your rescue when you have no hot water in your kitchen faucet.
