    Default hot water loop #2

    [This is a picture of the 2 lines that I disconnected when I went from 2 sinks to 1. I did not attach either one when I hooked up the new lines for the 1 sink . I do not have any fixtures attached to any lines, ( shower, toilet and new sink ). I was just doing leak test before putting up walls . When I turn on the water to the new lines ,I lose hot water to whole house . Nothing crossed , and water does come out, but not hot water. Do I need to hook up one of the disconnected lines to new hot water line.? I thought they were hammer resisters.

    Did you install a new tub or shower valve? All your picture shows is two open water lines. Maybe a picture of what your doing may help.

    johnjh20., All I was doing was a leak test, thats when I found out about the hot water issue. I only have the water lines sticking out of the walls with shut offs on them, for sink and toilet. The shower has a plug for handle and cap on shower spout . Was doing leak test before putting up walls. Do I need to have water running out of all lines ?

    That's your problem. You need to install the cartridge in the shower valve. With just the cap on it the hot and cold are mixing through the shower. It must be a Delta shower valve. Good valve but install the cartridge and your problems will be over. The cartridge comes with the trim kit.
