Aqua brass 3/4 thermostatic shower run hot water in to the cold feed]

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

SOURCE: i have agrohe shower fixture with poor pressure

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.

SOURCE: faucet issue

Sounds like it was installed upside down or the cartridge is installed improperly

SOURCE: Cold water only from single-arm shower faucet in master bathroom

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! ;)

Thermostatic valve does not turn


followt this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Turn off the water supply and open the faucet handle to relieve water pressure.
  2. Carefully pry off the trim cap with a small screwdriver or putty knife.
  3. Remove the locknut with an adjustable wrench, then lift the spindle out of the faucet.
  4. As needed, remove and replace the O-ring. Before reinstalling, coat the stem lightly with plumber's grease.
  5. As needed, remove the retaining screw and pry out the washer. Install an exact-replacement washer and tighten it.
  6. As needed, inspect the seat and replace if damaged.
  7. Install the valve and tighten, then reinstall the handle and test.

Why is there restricted water flow


It may be as simple as cleaning the aerator out. If that is not the case then you will need to disassemble the faucet and investigate.

When installing a flexishower head, install it in front of the actual shower head with a diverter switch. If you try to operate two shower heads at once, you may suffer poor water pressure. There are handheld shower sets sold which are installed to existing shower assemblies with ease. Rememer to use plumber's tape and protect your stainless steel by wrapping you pliers teeth in electrical tape.

My thermostatic concealed shower valve only gives either boiling hot water or cold water, there is no inbetween temperature? the cold is fed from mains and the hot from a combi boiler. the plumber has said...


Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.

Hudson Thermostatic Problem


try this.
if you have anti scald device installed in the valve, take it out. the anti-scald device is to keep the hot water from pouring out in case the cold water pipe is not functioning. In general sense, it is a good idea, however, it also mixes too much of cold water, therefore you don't get eough hot water.
