Temp fluxes in the shower when toilet flushes

Ask a Plumber

What do I need to do to stop the shower from changing temp when someone washes a dish or flushes the toilet? OUCH!


Answer ( 1 )

  1. The problem can be one of three things:

    1. Your water lines are full of corrosion.
    2. The water lines were under size when the house was built.
    3. The pressure to the house isn’t what it once was from the city supply.

    All of these problems can only be rectified by re-piping all of the waterlines in your home to the proper size.
