SOURCE: I have a pioneer shower valve that has pressure problem

The way anti-scald valves work is there is a slide tube inside the faucet which requires pressure from both hot and cold or else it will cut off the flow. As for temperature adjust I do not believe there is an adjustment screw but more so there are these white plastic toothed stop rings which prevent the handle from turning 360 degrees. When your adjust the stop ring, it adjusts how much hot water is allowed to mix with the cold water. My wife likes her showers a lot hotter than I, so I gave a good allowance with the stop ring. The "adjustment screws" which you are viewing are not for adjustment of temperature, they are remote cut-off screws to stop the water entirely to change the washers in the unit if needed. SO open those all the way and leave them open. Think of them as not having to go all the way into the basement to shut off the water supply just to change a few washers.

SOURCE: The water is too cold coming out of the Moen Adler

Turn the cold water feed down as low as possible to maintain pressure and increase the temp on the water heater.

SOURCE: Hello I have just installed a

This unit is indeed adjustable.
You'll need an adjustable wrench and philips and small flat screwdriver.
However the temperature water coming out the faucet should be the same as out the showerhead as these two are on the same pipe after the cartridge.
To adjust:
Pry off the cap on the handle. Undo the screw in the handle and remove the handle. Remove the collar below the handle with the tool provided and remove the collar.
Unscrew the backing plate and remove. Remove the plaster guard.
Remove the base nut and its retainer nut to expose the cam.
This cam can be used to adjust hot water temperature. Note its position, remove it and move clockwise of its present position to increase hot water temperature.
If youre not at the correct temp yet :
On both the hot and cold inlet pipes are stop valves that can be adjusted by screwdriver to increase/decrease water flow. Open both fully.(counter clockwise)

How can I adjust the shower knob to produce hotter water then it does now. It used to be hotter. Taking the knob off reveals a white piece of plastic with a colder to hotter temp. gauge. How can I adjust...

Should be able to adjust clockwise or counter clockwise to adjust the temp. You said that the temp used to be hotter. Check the temp setting on your water heater. Did you replace your old water heater? Hope this helps.
