Hot water to bathroom tub and shower is almost non-existent. Just a trickle gets up to shower head. I have cleaned the shower head for deposits, but even with the head off there is very little hot water getting up to the shower. Could there be build up within the pipe, and if so, how do I clean it out?

This sounds like a problem in the tub/shower faucet itself.
What type do you have?
Go to and folow the links fro the Plumbing section to the type of faucet thaat you have for an illustrated how-to-fix.
Good Luck!

hot water missing

Thanks. I have a delta, and the valves were worn. I've replaced them, but while doing this I found that the pipe bringing hot water up is leaking. It looks like two small, pinprick holes on the pipe. Do you know of anything I could use to patch this temporarily?
