SOURCE: low flow hot water in Delta Shower

If your water heater is old or has been recently replaced, it will slough off debris that will get caught in the hot water supply side of the faucet. You have to disassimble the faucet and use a dental pic to remove the debris from it. This is a real common occurance. You can also try to flush out that side by removing the parts and then slowly turning on the water without the parts inside. Be careful not to flood your bathroom when you do this. But usually you have to dig it out. I have spent as high as 3 hours digging the liner from the dip tube of a water heater out of a faucet.

SOURCE: Water is not very hot.

First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

With the detailed part number you have, I would just walk into stores like Home Depot or any plumbing store and they will give you the exact parts you need. They are not expensive and a lot of them are standard parts and come in kits.
Good luck.

Cna you remove water line feeding hot side to make sure it has correct flow. It could have something blocking inside of water line. And check hot inlet side on faucet to make sure it is open and not blocked.

Remove line you can run water in a bucket to ensure that hot side water line has no blockage in it and have someone help you with turning water off and on for you.

I dont know if you really want to hear this but the faucet will have to be replumbed. The way this works is on the faucet you have 2 inputs (hot and cold) if they are not in there proper feed ports they will have to be removed and installed correctly. if they are installed using flex lines you can probably do it yourself but if its hard plumed (copper pipe) it will be more difficult as the pipes will have to be cut and moved.

Delta 13022 - Hot water out of the shower is much cooloer than out of the sink faucet. How is the mix of hot & cold controlled?

The Delta shower has a rotational limit stop designed so that when another fixture is activated, such as a toilet or dishwaser, the water does not go to extreme hot or cold. The reason for this is that the Delta shower unit is not pressure balanced or does not contain an anti scald device. The pdf document below will show how to adjust the water tempature if you feel it is too cold. Please use caution as it is probably set the way it is to prevent scalding.
