Question about Aqua Brass Home
Hi I installed a 3/4 thermostatic shower some while ago and we have had hot water bleeding into the cold water feed ever since. I have clean and replaced the thermostatic fixture and cleaned and wd40'd the pressure valves on both the hot and cold feed and we still get lovely hot water when we clean our teeth in the bathroom. I think it is the shower at fault or a balance into the shower as when I isolate the shower, the cold water is fine.
any ideas on what I could try next

If the shower head is clogged (even if it it is not I would still do this)
remove the head and soak in coke (yes, it works), CLR, vinegar or bleach and see if you can dissolve the debris. If that is not the culprit, check to see if there is access to a shut-off valve behind or below the shower. It will be inside of the wall and is only acessable through a hole in the wall.
If that is not the case, it is now time to consider replacing the shower body. This is an involved job but something very doable by a competent homeowner.
Hope this helped.

Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.
Hope this helps! ;)
