Hot water coming out of cold water tap

Ask a Plumber

What could be wrong when the cold water tap is turned on but hot water is coming out of it?


Answer ( 1 )

  1. Usually when we find a tap that has the water temperatures mixed up we find it to be one of two things. Either the water supply lines underneath have been crossed or the cartridge for the tap has been installed incorrectly.
