Disable delta scald guard

My wife and I hate the scald guard. We like to take HOT showers and the Damn thing keeps the water luke warm. Starts out hot for maybe 2 minutes then goes cold. The gauge is set all the way up. Can I disable the DAMN thing?

SOURCE: I have an older Delta single handle shower scald

It sounds like it has mineral deposits in the hot water side. Try taking the internal valve parts completely out of the fixture and examine them. If there is any scaly (light grey) deposits, that would be the problem.
The solution is to soak all the parts in vinegar, which will dissolve the mineral deposits. It takes awhile to dissolve what has taken long to build up, so heat the vinegar, or put it all on a warm, not hot, surface to keep it more active.
I had this problem, and after cleaning it a couple of times with vinegar, I changed out the Delta to another brand. You could also use a water softening unit, which replace calcium and other metals with sodium, thus eliminating the mineral deposit problem.

Pull apart the front of the valve and there is a limiter that is set to limit hte hot water, you need to adjust that limiter. I find many valves are shipped with teh setting too cold.

It is more that likely the valve in the stem of your fixture, I'm assuming this is a single handle faucet. If you can replace the valve, you will cure your problem. I am giving you a link to how to adjust the hot water temp.

MY DELTA SCALD GUARD FAUCET WILL NOT TURN OFF HOW DO I REPAIR


When a Delta Scald Guard will not turn off, more than likely it is because the seats have worn out. Turn off the water supply and open any faucets lower stream of the shower unit. Using an allen key, locate the set c=screw in the handle and back it out. Next,Remove the Phillips screw holding the handle in place.Next turn the retaining ring counter clockwise and pull the catridge out of the faucet.Some catridges have two parts front and back. Behind the back part id two small rubber washers called seats and two springs. Install two new seats and springs and everything else in reverse order.

Not hot water should not exceed 120 degrees. If it does it will continue to melt the seats.

How do you adjust temp. water luke warm? This is a single handle. Hot water set at 145.


These type faucets have anti scald dial setting that if you remove the handle you can gain access to it.
Just remove handle and mark or remember where it is and pull it out and reinsert it about 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

It has got marks on it and looks like a little gear.

My delta 132900 gets too hot.


With these Faucets, you can remove the handle and make adjustments to the max Hot water setting (scald guard).

You may also have a faulty or lime-covered cartridge.

SEE THIS SITE for making adjustments/replacing the cartridge.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
