Question about Water Pik Waterpik& Elements& Handheld Showerhead

1 Answer

I have one turn handle in the shower. When I turn it to the right for cold wter, the cold water comes out fine - good pressure. When I turn it to the left to get some hot water, the water goes down to a messy, low pressure type trickle. What is the problem? Can I fix it myself? If so, how? I really have no experience with plumbing.

Alot of newer shower controls have a tempering valve on them. You need to open up the front of the unit (hopefully you have your owners manual and adjust the inner workings) this should solve your problem

Moen single handled shower the hot water turns cooler then cold after a minute


Your whole house is likely plumbed wrong so that it is impossible to have equal pressures of both hot and cold at your shower. If you had your home plumbed with aquapex using a radiator for the hot water and a radiator for the cold water and have the radiators fed with a 1 inch line you can have close to perfect pressures.

Low hot water pressure on Moen Single-Handle Shower Only posi-temp shower control. Cold water pressure is fine. Hot water pressure elsewhere in house is ok. Cold it be the cartrige -- lime buidlup, etc.?


I think you are on the right track. The first thing I would do is change the cartridge. While you have the valve apart examine the inlet ports as good as you can to see if there is any mineral buildup. You can use a short length of a small gauge mallable wire to run into water ports to se if you can break anything loose. Another thing you can do is to turn supply stop on slightly while you have the valve disassembled to wash any particles out. Hope this helps you and thanks.

As you look at your valve on the right you will see a large screw fitting.inside this fitting is a temp/ pressure balance spool. it has failed for some reason and needs to be replaced. On both sides of the valve are 2 smaller screws. these are the water shut off valves. turn off the water and remove the larger screw fitting. remove spool and replace. Hope this helps.

these valves can be adjusted by removing the handle and adjusting the white gear that regulates the hot and cold that come out, try going more to one way if it gets colder then go the other way.

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.


Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

The shower has very low pressure in the cold water and hot water is fine


If at one time there was good pressure on the cold water shut of water supply remove the cartridge from the valve (under the handle) and then turn the supply back on (just alittle) to flush out and reinstall. I hope this has been helpful if I can help further please let me know. Please rate if the information has been helpful. Good Luck and have a great weekend.
