Question about Shower Hardware
I have a single handle delta faucet in my shower. When i turn the shower on,the water never get hot enough to shower in.There is plenty of water pressure, is there an adjustment I can make to increase the amount of hot water the valve puts out? I know it is not the water heater. All other faucets work fine. Thanks, Conway
Some higher end models do have an adjustment that is behind the face plate. You would have to remove the handle and the screws in the faceplate to expose them. If you have adjustments they will be located on the brass valve body facing you. You will need a flashlight and a flathead screwdriver to make the adjustment. If your model is not equipped with adjustments you could have a faulty valve stem. The stem is comprised of a rubber band like gasket that separates port holes into which the waters flow. There could be some piece of trash blocking the port not allowing adequate water from the hot side into the valve.Some valves stems are also able to be installed upside down causing the same issue as the ports do not rotate fully to allow adequate supply. However you say that you have adequate pressure on the hot side but not warm enough. There is another possibility also based on the way the shower supply was plumbed but there is no need to go into this unless this does not resolve your issue. I hope this is of assistance and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
