Shower temperature too hot

Have shower that switches from overhead to hand held. Has worked perfectly for over 1 yr. Lately the water is much too hot and can't adjust. The other shower, faucets, etc are not having this problem. Is there some sort of routine maintenance?

    mine began when we developed a water hammer thumping in the bath area. the valve is now 100% hot or cold, no in between. the hammer is lessened but the hot or cold problem is unchanged.

    we had 2 plumbers come out for a total of 5 visits to solve this problem, and neither could solve it. they replaced the cartridge twice, replaced both outside water spigots, checked and tightened every valve in the house, then threw up their hands and walked away. at least they didnt charge me. so now we live with it.

    My Grohe shower is about 3 years old and also developed a problem of temp adjustment. It hot or super hot and sometime the water just stop without warning. So far no plumber has the courage to take it apart.
    Should I just replace the whole unit? It seemed like fixing a Grohe is not that easy.

Shower valves that have anti-scald features are renowned for this problem. Usually it is caused by not being used regularly. It can be repaired usually without replacing the valve, but you will have to dissemble it, clean, and use some plumbers grease to reassemble it. It should work fine after this. If it still does not work you will need to replace the cartridge.

From your question it sounds like the valve is around a year old. That means it has a pressure balancing cartridge that prevents scalding when there is a drop in cold water pressure. It seems that that stem is either plugged OR partially built up with water scale. I'm guessing Stem/cartridge is corroded.

Do you have a properly working water softener??

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

Clubmaster shower not holding temperature. Hot water not coming through.


There's only there things that are clubmaster, a shower head, and two hand held sprayers.

They all spray water, they don't heat water.

Did someone install a new part, the one that's behind the wall ?

If they did, most have a safety so people don't get burnt and they need to be adjusted.

Adjust hot water on hansgrohe metro shower


The hand shower and wall bar does not control temp. The valve in the wall would control the temperature of the water going to the shower. I would need to be able to identify the model number of the valve in the wall to be able to give accurate instructions on temperature adjustment. If you need help identifying this valve feel free to give me a call at Hansgrohe 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough

I'd like to install 1 shower had and one hand held shower. What do I need to have ?


well you can do a 3 way shower valve , or a mixing valve with 2 control valves. or you can do just to regular shower valves one for each of the heads you want one for the rain and one for the shower head. this way is cheeper and you can have one on hot water and the other cold water or the other way around or both the same temp.

Triton Electric Shower Temperature too hot


You could have mineral deposits on the temperature probe inside of the unit. If you remove the heater and purchase a bottle of lime and scale remover (lime away) to put inside of it. Let the unit sit full of water and chemicals for 24 hours. Flush out the unit to remove any residue. You may see the water is brown if you have a lot of buildup. Reconnect unit and test your settings. If this doesn't work, install a anti-scalding device, available at a plumbing supply store.
