We've had problems in the past with hot water running slowly in an upstairs shower. We had a plumber come out and he "backfushed" the hot water line which helped alot. I'd like to do this again myself, but I don't know what to do. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks,
Jay

CLOSE THE VALVE ABOVE THE HEATER,PLACE A HOSE ON THE DRAIN **** AT THE BOTTOM OF
THE HEATER,TURN IT ON, TURN ON THE HOT SIDE IN THE SHOWER,NOTHING SHOULD HAPPEN,USE A RAG
TO COVER THE END OF THE TUB SPOUT AND THEN
TURN THE COLD WATER ON TO FLUSH BACK THRU THE HOT LINE INTO AND OUT OF THE HEATER.
