Question about Home
From 1970''s - 1980's Waltec manufactured the 'gromax' used to adjust water temperature. There was a 3 knob vertical configuration. The top knob regulated shower strength, on + off. The bottom knob regulated the tub strength, on + off. The middle knob regulated the temperature, hot or cold for either the shower or tub, which ever was selected. I would like to see the plumbing configuation behind the wall and want to know what to use to replace this old system, as they are no longer made. (It's really too bad as they worked great and had a safety feature for young ones. If someone has one lying around on a shelf I would love to buy it!) I'm not sure how to spell 'gromax'? This is for my Mom's bathroom in Canada.

shut off the water from the main pipe.
use a allen screw driver take the handle off the shower control.
pull of the wall cover.
pull out the pin that stablized the cartridge in the control body. (remember how it is, before you take it out. or take a digital pic of it). pull out the cartridge. and bring it to any home center or plumbing store.
install in reverse.

It sounds as though the valve is not closing and opening properly. I would have a proffesional come out to have a look. I could also be the control board not working correctly or a combination of both.

Take the plastic knob off.Turn the brass stem with a pair of pliers until you get it in the proper position.
Off faces down
Cold faces left
Hot faces right
Once in the position screw pastic knob back on.

Testimonial: "This information was extremely helpful especially when you know what to look for and have instruction."
Remove handle and check to see if there is a dial to take out to repostion back in to adjust cold and hot water flow. take it out and move it a little put handle on and turn on see if it changes,
