Home & Garden
Q. I can’t seem to get hot water in my bathroom. I get just enough for a shower, but filling the tub is out of the question. I had to fill the tub with pots of water from my kitchen faucet because the spigot on the tub was only giving me lukewarm water. Why is the kitchen water hot but not the bathroom? A. If you have an anti-scald valve, a round plate with a handle at the bottom of the round fixture that you can switch from tub to shower and vice versa, and the water flow is very low, I think that you have not pushed the handle all the way to “tub.” If that doesn’t work, call your favorite plumber. You may need a new valve.

Q. My duplex has a common basement divided by a wall. My neighbor has installed a sump and a pump, but some water finds its way across his floor and under the wall into my space. I don’t mind that, but he does, and wants me to install a sump and a pump on my side to stop that overflow. Would that work?
