When I turn on my hot water at the faucet, it takes about 45 seconds before hot water actually flows. Before that it's cold.
I live in a small apartment that's only about 500 sq. ft., and in a straight line, my water heater is no more than 15 feet from any faucet.
Why would it take so long for the hot water to get to my faucet?
Other random things about my plumbing (may or may not be relevant):
-- The kitchen sink and the bathtub faucets drip.
-- The drains quite slowly from the tub and the kitchen sink.
