We moved into our home 1 year ago. Home was built in 1985 pretty much a DIY dream : ) From day 1 - I noticed the faucet coming out of the wall to the pool deck pictured below becomes hot after about 30 seconds which is about the same amount of time required to get hot water to our master bedroom (furthest away from hot water heater) Our home is only 1750 sq ft; the water heater is in the garage then the hot water passes the laundry room then splits off to main bathroom on one leg and kitchen on the other. From under the sink in the kitchen is about 15 ft to this wall that you see pictured. Originally there was a hose connected but wasn't much use because you wouldn't fill the pool with hot water (at least I wouldn't). You could take a shower but honestly it would be almost too hot for a shower. There is no cold water at all. So my question is could there be a mixer somewhere where you could adjust and bring cooler water into the mix? Or just switch completely to cold would be fine also. One note - our kitchen sink which again is probably the last connection before this one has the hot/cold reversed. We use a single pull down and turn kitchen faucet so this is not an issue just thought I would mention in case it was possible that could be causing hot water routed to the faucet? Any thoughts at all on why its only hot water and if there is some way we can change this?
