Hot Water Turns Warm
Hot Water Turns Warm Podcast:
Tim Carter got an email from Donna about an issue with the hot water at her kitchen sink. Read it:
Something is bothering me about my kitchen faucet. When I turn the water to HOT and it's full blast, the water is hot when I fill the dishpan. When I go to rinse the dishes and the water is still turned to hot, but the force is greatly reduced, the water is much cooler, even if it's running for a while. Is this a real thing or am I imagining I have a problem?

I'm sure you'll be pretty amazed at what I think is happening here. It could be something as simple as the length of time between when Donna is washing and rinsing the dishes. Listen to the short podcast above and let me know in the comments below.
ADDITIONAL DATA After the Call: Donna left a long comment below that provided the piece of data I wish she had put in her short original email above. The bottom line is the single-handle faucet cartridge in her kitchen sink faucet has a blockage. Once she replaces it, all will be well.
