Most conventional showers have brass seats or rubber seats that can deteriorate over time. these will leak or dribble and not maintain your temp.. Rubber and brass seats are a fairly common and easy replacement. It sure beats trying to rip out a shower valve.

SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: I can't get hot water from the pegasus shower valve

The antiscald device needs to be adjusted. It's behind the escucheon and determines the amount of hot water flow.

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

Do I need to replace the thermocoupling on my Reliance 501 gas water heater? Model is 5 30 NOMT7 C. Recently, I've noticed an intermittent problem with the the hot water not staying consistent. So we're...


The thermocouple is a safety for the gas valve. It tells it the pilot light is lit. If your pilot light is not going out and the burner fires when you turn up the thermostat, it is all working as it should. In other words, if you don't need to re-light the pilot, your thermocouple is OK. Turning up the temperature of the water is a good idea, just be careful not to burn anyone with the hotter water. You mite want to try a water saver shower head. Some don't throw enough water to get the soap off, but I bought one that can be turned to adjust flow and we have been happy with it. If I missed what you need from this, please let me know. Roger

We are a bit confused by the device that you are using to heat the Hot water with- Is it an instantaneous HW heater?--
They are pressure sensitive-- Could it be, that your water pressure drops momentarily, (which causes the instantaneous heater to shut down its flame-- and you get a pulse of Cold water.)

If your hot water is a tank-- It is possible that something is cycling your hot water away-- like rinse pulses on the Washing machine)-- or your dishwasher?

Tell us more about the Rinnal Air Conditioners and what they have to do with Hot water and your SHower?

Tell us more-

You don't indicate what kind of valve(s) you have in your shower/bathtub.

It is sometimes the case, when you have separate hot and cold valves that use the traditional flat washer, the rubber/viton washer wears over time and actually becomes cut, such that a part of the washer protrudes from the valve face.

Hot water will cause the distorted washer to expand. Consequently, as more and hotter water flows through the valve, the washer expands to the point where it constricts the flow of hot water.

Replace the washer, at least on the hot water valve.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.

My shower mixing valve will not adjust. The water is hot no matter what position I put it in. Makes for some really hot showers.
