The valve on the pipe into the hester is either shut off or broken in the off position. When you open both the hot and cold in the sink some of the cold is going into the hot pipe and that is why the tub then has water from the hot side.

: Hi. We are installing a new hot water heater. Everything seemed easy enough, I had it all together and after I filled the tank up, no water came out at all out of the hot water faucet. The strange thing is, when I have both the sink and tub hot water valve open in the bathroom, when I turn the cold water on in the sink, water comes out of the tub. (The tub hot water valve is open but the cold is closed). Any ideas as to why I now have no hot water...and to my wierd problem? I've thought about the possibility of a clogged pipe but before I replaced the hot water tank, had no trouble getting water when turning the hot water valve on. I'm not a plumber and I'm totally puzzled! Any help is greatly appreciated!
