View Full Version : Question for any plumbers.

My house is about 5 years old. When I moved in, if i was in the shower and someone would flush the toilet or turn on other water in the house the pressure would drop but the temperature stayed the same. Just over a year ago I had some plumbers in to run some extra lines for a bar and bathroom in my basement. I'm still working on the basement so whilst the lines are there and have water in them they aren't connected to taps yet. Since the plumbers have been in when I'm in the shower now and someone flushes the toilet or uses water the pressure in the shower drops but the temperature also changes. If its the toilet that's been flushed the water in the shower goes rediculously hot.

So, what are the plumbers likely to have done to make it change like this? Is it something that I should have them come back to fix or will it fix itself when I add the taps downstairs?
