air in hot water line (shower head) ?
Posted by j thompson on May 18, 2001 at 09:36:29:
When I use my low flow shower head, I can hear what seems to be air hissing from either the valve or the shower head. When I turn the hot water side of my bathroom sink on at the same time my shower is on, the sound goes away. My question is how to get rid of the sound? Do I need to bleed the air from the system? If so, how do I do that? What causes air to enter the water lines? The only explanation I have been given thus far is that my hot water heater may not be working properly.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
