Sounds like you need to replace the inner cartridge. You can shut your water off at the street meter if your whole house does not have its own external shut off. Be sure to relieve the pressure before popping out the cartridge.

Shower force


Are you wanting to change/switch the hot and cold range of the shower or the temperature max and min? As for the range, the Monitor pressure balance valve may be having build up or problems. This valve controls the mixture of hot and cold water. To fix this, you will need to turn off the water supply, take the pipes apart and clean out the valve (I would recommend a professional). As for the max and min, you may just need to check the water heater pressure in your house. It may not be the faucet at all.

Can't get both hot water running at the same time. Delta Shower faucet


  • The spool and sleeve, the part of the Scald-Guard pressure balance valve that blends the hot and cold water, is not working properly. This can is caused by mineral deposits that build up over time resulting from hard water. To fix this, follow the steps below based on your model.
  1. Shut off water supply.
  2. There are two types of valves. Choose one or the other below depending on your series.
  • 1300-1400 Series: Remove handle.
  • 1700-1800 Series: Remove temperature knob, cover and handle.
  1. Twist and pull sleeve to remove it.
  2. Unscrew brass bonnet nut.
  3. Remove cartridge.
  4. Soak cartridge in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for 24 hours to remove any mineral deposits.
  • **NOTE** Unless both hot and cold water supplies are turned on, the pressure balance valve will allow only a dribble of water to flow through the valve.
  • I have put up a picture to make disassembling it just that much easier for you.

The water temperature will not get hot enough


there is an internal cartridge with little valves that control the mix of hot and cold water. Over time the cartridge can get crudded up with calcium or the small valves can fail. Delta's website can provide you with the part you need...

I have an older single handle Delta shower valve, and I am only able to get good water pressure on cold water (which is opposite of the normal right hand). Can you suggest a solution?


A rebuild kit for a shower is pretty cheap for delta. the actual ball behind the handle maybe wore and not allowing it to seat properly and restricing water flow hot side.

Also if you take it appart the 2 washers and springs you might as well replace them also.

Replace washers and springs and the ball with shaft that handle fits to.

Shut off water before taking appart.

We have a newly installed Delta single-handle shower faucet and cannot figure out HOW to get a warm water mix. No matter where we turn the handle, we get different temperatures of "cold."


That is a graduated water mixer valve, and it sometimes has a little white water restrictor blocking flow from your hot water port. See if that was left in by removing the handle with all water shut off to the valve and reattach then try again. This can also happen if you have a tankless water heater because pressure controls heat. Typically a Tankless water heater system will require little, to no cold water to your bathtub valve because of the heavy water flow at the tap. Remember, flow equals temperature. Less flow = more heat, more flow = less heat.

Shower faucet does not switch to hot.


Hi,

This has happened to me in the past and had exactly the same symptoms but with a different valve. Before trying the below, it may make sense to be 100% sure that hot water is definitely getting to the valve .. can you get access to touch the hot feed pipe to make sure that it is in fact the valve at fault.

The following could be the issue:

1. The shower valve has a bit of dirt or gunk in it and is unable to allow the hot water through. It can happen with a very small amnount of dirt and is a real pain as it requires disassemble of the entire valve assembly.

2. The valve has failed and needs to be replaced - This was the solution to mine and was also significant in terms of effort.

Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Pressure is high can it be adjusted?


Is this a new install? Is this happening with cold and hot water, or just one? Is it just happening with the shower valve open if it's not a new install. it may be the shower valve bad. These can be replaced easily, Lowes $7-14 depending on brand. The water has to be shut off from coming in to the shower. If it is happening with the water running on either hot/cold, the each one has a valve like the shower knob. These go bad and are replaced the same. These release to much water when the rubber seal breaks down inside the valve. Let us know which way it's happening and maybe able to help more.
