Because they are basically in the same location, the problem obviously
is in or near that location. The simple (and first thing a plumber
will check) is the strainers on the faucets and crud inthe valve at
An expansion tank will not do a thing for the problem. They are used
as "overpressure" protection on a sealed system (well or house with a
one=way valve on city water). They also cure water hammer if they are
near the source of the 'hammer'.
shh...I know that. ;-) In fact, I posted the link the the pdf
instructions on how to clean a toilet valve.
I'm just waiting to hear from either of the 2 posters who think an
expansion tank will solve this particular problem.
I figured you did but...
I also am waiting with baited breath for the explanation. Should be
good. Probably not as good as Gary Slusser was. Haven't seen
anything from him for many years. Last I heard of him was my post
pointing out (for the umpteenth time) the pressure outof thetank is
the same regardless of the pre charge. Sudden silence at that point
as if all the hundreds of possts trying to get it through his thick
head finally sunk in.
