You water pressure may be too high and when you open the sink faucet it takes some of the pressure away from the shower. Air cannot get into a system unless it is pumped in and, if it does get into the system, it bleeds off as soon as soon as the first faucet is opened.

: 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
