In response to Re: Insulating Shower Pipes
: Hello
: Great site! The hot water to my master shower take about two minutes to heat and does not get very hot(sits about 30 feet from a new hot water heater). The second bath, which is right next to the hot water heater, heats up quickly and gets very hot. I know that the second bath's pipes are insulated (wrapped all around the valve and 2 feet down the pipe). Do you think that insulating the master bath pipes would greatly help or is it just too far from the water heater?

: Thanks for any help.

You might check to see if there is a device under the handle that limits the amount the hot water will turn on. It is a safety feature on many newer valves and is adjustable.
