    Hot water pressure at the Faucet is just a trickle.



    Tried the Following



    1.) turned the Cold water off at the faucet Set screw, to see actually how much hot water was making it to the faucet. Still just a trickle



    2.) Removed the stopper and spring from the hot side of the faucet and still just a trickle



    3.) Turned off the Hot water supply line. Removed the set screw assembly and attached a 3/8 adapter and a hose and turned on the hot water. Plenty of Hot water pressure through the hose.



    Something is wrong with the shower valve? what else can I do?



    4.) I think I've ruled out everything that I have Control over.

The antiscald device needs to be adjusted. It's behind the escucheon and determines the amount of hot water flow.

How do I adjust water temperature on a Pegasus shower head?


Adjustment is usually on the valve assembly. Take off the big round trim ring and you will find the adjustment on the valve assembly or in the valve stem.

Glacier bay faucet manual


Contact glacier bay to get a replacement control/handle assembly. Usually their customer service department is good at replacing the parts under warranty

You should have individual cold & hot water supply shut-offs in your basement for your tub/shower; if not, now's the time to install them.

If I could be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Why is it that when I turn on the water on my Pegasus K800 tub and shower faucet, water comes out of the spout and the shower head. It is brand new


Your diverter valve probably has a loose washer or seat. It could be defective, but try to tighten the washer and seat first.

No water pressure on Pegasus kitchen single handle faucet


Those new faucets generally have a lower water pressure due to legislation passed in 2007 that reduced that maximum allowable gpm (gallons per minute). I hate to tell anyone this but there is little if anything you can do. First of all, make sure the shut-off valves are open completely. I know that sounds elementary but I've seen it a bunch of times.

Also check to see if the aerator is blocked with a bit of debris.....unlikely if the flow is uniform but still an easy fix.

Hope I didn't break your spirit too much....
