It is something else, but we cannot tell you what it is. For the hot water to be syphoned from the hot water tank, the hot water faucet would have to be open somewhere so air could enter the line.

: This problem is in a a new rural house. water is pumped from the lake and filtered etc. It runs 3/4" copper out of filter to a tee 1/2" to water heater and cold feed to house. When cold taps are turned on hot water comes out all of them same with a tolet flush. The lines are not crossed so cold is cold line and hot is hot. Could it be some how a problem with the pipe size creating a syphon from the hot water tank or a cross bleed in a faucet? or something else Help!!!!
