Problem with Shires C2000 shower valve. The shower has become tepid and will not heat up. The hot and cold feeds to the shower mixer valve are fine. Adjusting the temp control does not work. Wha

The valve is around 15 years old, and had a new cartridge fitted about a year ago to cure a leak. After that it once again worked fine. Recently it has again become faulty and this time will only give a tepid shower. The hot and cold feeds have been valved off and each tested for flow, which is fine. The hot flow alone gives a strong shower, but much too hot. The cold, the same, but much too cold. When both feeds are fully on, I cannot get a mix which is more than cool to tepid. Adjusting the temp gauge does not work. What is the problem and what to do about it?

SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: Kohler 30 year old single handle shower valve - cold water only

Is this a dual handle or single handle? if it is a single handle
turn the valve 180 degree. if not, then check the cold water supply line.

Remove handle to gain acess to the temperature limit stop. Remove handle and pull out handle adapter kit and next there is a dail that can be adjusted to control the water to balance the temp. It could have been installed wrong, pay attention to where it is now and pull it back to it disengages out of the stem and move it counter clockwise a little and reinstall. Put handle on and test water for correct movement.

SOURCE: We have a 20 year old tub shower single valve. We

I'm not now nor have I ever been a fan of the plastic moen replacement cartrideges. I don't know if they still do but probably about twenty five years ago I tried using a few of the plastic replacements,mostly due to high cost of the brass moen factory ones I think every one leaked. Then I actually read on the instructions that it was not unusual for them to leak some. My suggestion is to get a good brass moen magnum cartridge and be done with it for another twenty years. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Why do I only have hot water in the shower


sounds like either the cold water that feeds the other half got shut off, or the mixer in the valve for controlling the water temperature is broken....most likely the water got shut off. better go to the water source and trace the cold water feed pipe ,looking for a shut off valve....it could also be behind the shower panel, then turn or rotate the valve the other way and go test the water to see if you can adjust the temperature now.....if not, then replace your hardware.......in the mean time, you could turn the temperature down on the water heater so that you won't scald yourself in the shower til you have time to fix it properly.

Mira mixer cannot balance temp.either scalding hot or freezing cold


I suspect you have gravity fed hot water system and the mixer cannot balance the high pressure of the cold mains against the low pressure of the hot water.
Either install a shower pump. Means installing electrical connections and quite a bit of plumbing
Or a mechanical pressure reduction valve on the cold input pipe to the shower

The thermostatic stop is set too low.

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.

I don't get enough hot water, temp is too cold


This sound like you need to reduce the inlet pressure of the cold feed to the mixer. If there is no 'non return valve' fitted and the cold feed pressure is too great, i can in effect push back the hot water feed and reduce the temp. So how to fix?? trace back the direct water feed to the shower faucet/outlet feed and simply reduce its pressure by 1/4 turning the 'in-line' stop valve the plumber should of fitted if he was any good at his working standards.

Hope this Helps

No cold water only, just tepid to hot on thermobalance I


hi i think the problem is the temp has not been adjusted to your requirements as it will come factory set at 43 deg c so you will probably need to get it adjusted by the guys who fitted it as it wiil need to be set by a professional.
