The hot water in my house has a mind of it's own. Every once in a while (and I do mean a while.) I will be able to have a nice scalding hot shower. The majority of the time though, it will get hot for about 30 seconds and then get freezing. I have just been kind of dealing with it, but now I am sick and a cold shower when you have a fever is not very nice.

All the sinks in the house do the same thing as the showers, and the water pressure pretty much sucks all around as well.

I'm gonna go have a poke around in the basement and see what I can figure out about my house's general water heating system, and I will be right back.

Any help is much appreciated.
